Paper and Printing
Can I use monarch paper and envelopes?
Yes, if we're sending the letters to you. Otherwise, we recommend using something else.
We can cut any of our papers down to monarch size, so you can choose any color or finish. Monarch envelopes are only available in white.
Our machines aren't able to reliably insert monarch sheets into monarch envelopes. If we're sending the letters for you, add $0.20/letter for hand-inserting and sealing.
Linen paper and envelopes are our recommended alternative to monarch paper and envelopes. They'll stand out due to their texture, without adding as much to the cost.
Monarch envelopes are only slightly wider than monarch paper, which prevents our machines from being able to consistently insert the folded letters into these envelopes.
If you were planning on signing the letters individually, however, this doesn't matter, and monarch envelopes will stand out in the mail due to their unusual size.
When preparing your letter for monarch-sized printing, set the paper size to 7.25" wide by 10.5" tall. This size is also known as executive paper, and can be found under that name in both Word and Publisher.
