ABC's of Letterwriting / E = Envelope
Though most correspondence is slipped in to an envelope, that was not always the case. Lettersheets, distributed by the postal service, were common in the 18th and 19th centuries. Lettersheets were simply a sheet of paper used for writing, then folded and addressed on the outside to become self-mailers. Airmail sheets were lightweight lettersheets, but they, like the original lettersheets are no longer sold—but you can create your own!
You can also make your own envelopes from decorated or plain papers, or purchase them from paper companies, printers, or office supply stores.
The USPS has requirements for standard envelopes sizes. Envelopes that fall outside the proper dimensions will require additional postage (minimal cost), but worth it!
