I ordered mine through a professional printer and the cards are approx 3.5 inches by 5 inches and the envelopes are just slightly bigger to accommodate the cards (i only measured the cards themselves).  I think you can pretty much make them any size you want to.

Most rsvp cards you see sold in sets are 3.5×5, which fit into a 4bar envelope.  Some are bigger at 4.25×5.5, fitting into an A2 envelope.  Going with the A2 size allows you to get 4 cards out of standard 8.5×11 cardstock.  Yours would be a little larger than average, but I don’t think that really matters at all!

@Statutory Grape: just make sure you have an envelope size in mind, or plan on sending it postcard style.  nothing sucks worse than ending up with an odd fitting envelope after all the hard design work! 🙂

I’d go with a postcard too since postage is cheaper!  Make sure you follow the USPS guidelines for the size though.  There are minimum and maximum heights and widths that they’re very strict about.

I’m getting mine from Zazzle (designed my own, hehehehe) and they’re going to be 5″x7″ and they also come with envelopes.  In fact… all invites come with envelopes, which saves me from having to buy ’em!  my other invites are smaller and our driving directions, complete with address (we’ve still gotta test out our GPS to see if it picks up where our venue is, since cell phones don’t work there) will be printed and cut using card stock that’ll be between the invites and RSVP cards. 

I didn’t do postcards, since I really don’t like the idea of all that info being tossed around through the postal service.  But then, I’m also paranoid, too, and grew up with neighbors who’d go through our mail (which is why my parents rented and still rent a P.O box in the city.  we lived in the county…)

i really don’t think it matters what size they are.  I’ve frequently seen 4bar size cards and envelopes for them, but I think that is because they then fit inside a standard size envelope so it works.  Depending on your invitation suite I think you can do whatever works for your stuff.
