Square Greeting Cards

Double ScrollIrisSquare cards

Red River Paper has greeting card stock of 10.5 x5.25 that is 5.25 x 5.25 folded. The square format gives you extra possibilities in cropping and adding corner flourishes (see example).

My greeting card online class shows you many ways to take photographs especially for cards, how to work with text, and Photoshop techniques. http://www.esunrisedesigns.com for details

When sending a square card, I use the 5.25 x 7.25 envelope which is normal postage. If you use square envelopes, there is a 20 cent surcharge as they do not go through the USPS machine.  At least that is my understanding of the surcharge.

  1. I’m finding that more and more of my photos look best in a square format — especially the flower images. The only drawback I see is that square cards require extra postage by the sender. Or you provide over-sized envelopes. Do you have any other “solutions” to the postage challenge?

    • Jean, the Red River cards fold to 5.25 x 5.25. I use the 5.25 x 7.25 envelope which goes through at regular rates. The square envelopes have a 20 cent surcharge since they cannot go through the USPS machine. At least that is the explanation I have. Will add to the blog.

      Thanks!
