Can you mail tiny envelopes?

In the United States, the lowest permissible postal size for an envelope is 3-1/2-x-5-inches. Our site's smallest "mailable" size is 4-bar Envelopes/A-1 Envelopes. If you're looking through our little envelopes, keep in mind that they're not meant to be mailed. They're designed to provide a cheap replacement for paper products such as handouts and invitations.

There are two types of tiny mailing envelopes available on the market today: flatbed and webfed. With both types of envelopes, the material that makes up the outside surface is printed with heat-transfer ink, which means the image will not rub off. The flatbed envelope has a smooth, rigid surface while the webfed envelope has a flexible backing so it can be rolled into a tight tube.

Both types of tiny mailing envelopes are used by businesses who want to send customized offers or promotions in small quantities. For example, a company may produce several thousand 4-1/4-inch x 5-inch postcards but only sell ten of them. They would use the tiny mailing envelopes to package these cards instead of selling them at cost because it is more economical to print on small quantities.

The best part is that you don't need a lot of these small mailing envelopes. It is recommended that you purchase fewer than 100 of each type of envelope to avoid excessive postage costs.

What is the smallest mailable envelope size?

This means that no matter what you put into these envelopes, they will not exceed the maximum weight of four ounces per square foot of surface area.

The reason for this minimum size is to allow for use with postage machines that handle only three-and-a-half-by-five-inch paper. Such machines are found in many post offices and some private mail rooms. They can't handle any larger paper because the cost of adding equipment to accommodate heavier papers would make them too expensive to operate.

An alternative method of sending small packages is through our Priority Mail Express service. With this option, your package will be taken care of immediately it arrives at the post office. It will be given a tracking number and sent via first class mail or priority mail carrier. The shipping label will show up in your email once its been printed. This service is available for $75.
