Most Commonly Used Card Sizes

Need a guide for card sizes?  Me too.  Most of the cards I make are A2.  But, I have a stash of envelopes that are for various card sizes.  So, here's a chart that I created with the measurements for the most commonly used card sizes.


A1


3 ½ × 4 ⅞
3.5” × 4.875”
A2


4 ¼ × 5 ½
4.25” × 5.5”
A6


4 ½ × 6 ¼
4.5” × 6.25”
A7



5” × 7”
Biz


3 ½ × 2
3.5” × 2
Square


5 ½ × 5 ½
5.5” × 5.5”
 
 
 
 
ETA:  I figured it would be nice to have measurements for the corresponding layers.  Here you go:
