Some simple definitions to help you understand envelopes a bit more:

What size is a DL envelope? standard size 110mm x 220mm (to take A4 folded in to 1/3)

What size is a C5 envelope? standard size 229mm x 162mm (to take A4 folded in half to A5)

What size is a C4 envelope? standard size 324mm x 229mm (to take A4 unfolded)

What is a gummed envelope? Usually for use on a mailing machine that automatically inserts items, and the flap requires to be”wet” for it to stick down. Quite often this will be slightly wider than the standard envelope at 235mm x 162mm for example on a C5. Gummed envelopes are also often used as reply envelopes within mailings (also known as freepost or Business reply envelopes or BRE’s) as they are cheaper.

What is a self-seal envelope? Used for hand stuffed mailings, pre-glued flaps stick together when pressed.

What is a peel and seal envelope? The pre-guled flap has a protective film that needs to be lifted in order for the envelope to stick down. These have a longer shelf life than self-seal.

What’s the difference between a pocket and a wallet envelope? A wallet opens on the longer edge, a pocket on the shorter.
