Greetings Card Envelopes
Envelopes have dated back as far at 3200 BC, but they were not like the paper envelopes we have today. Back then they were being made from clay spheres and formed around financial tokens. Moving forward 5,200 years, we have many ranges of different sized and coloured envelopes.

In recent times, envelopes have many different applications. Business mailings, greetings card and padded envelopes are all firm favourites. Although emails have pretty much taken over from handwritten notes, greetings cards are still very popular. Especially in the United Kingdom, as we ranked the number one country in the world to send them.

The ranges of envelopes available have developed over the years. White window envelopes seem to be less popular, with companies opting to move their communications online.
