It totally depends on what size they are cutting it to.  Where are you buying it from?  I would go with the sizes given to you by the paper from.  You can also order a sample sheet and measure it yourself; this is how I did all of  my paper stuff.  I ordered samples, did all of my pre/prep work, and then ordered the paper I needed to finish everything.

I think you need to go with the dimensions from wherever you are ordering your card stock.  If that’s Paper Source, then their dimensions are generally good.  If you’re uncertain, you can call them.  Card stock is actually sold by weight (10 point, 15 point, 20 point).  What the vendor is doing is cutting your card stock to fit in a #10 envelope, which has dimensions of 4-1/8 by 9-1/2.

I think the Paper Source dimensions are the correct ones – typically, the envelope is 1/4" longer on each side than the stock.  Suzanno has the correct envelope size listed, which would make the Paper Source dimensions accurate.

That being said, if the place you are ordering your stock from says something different…obviously give thos dimensions to your designer!!
