Coloured Envelopes


The Gobrecht & Ulrich Paper Envelope Collection

We offer a wide range of colourful, quality envelopes in various sizes. All our paper envelopes are made from premium art papers. With at least 100 gsm paper weight, our envelopes are at least 35-40% heavier than standard, everyday office envelopes which usually use light 70-80 gsm paper stock.

This heavier paper stock makes Gobrecht & Ulrich envelopes perfect for special invitations (weddings, birthday parties) or greeting cards - every time you want impress the recipient and make a great first impression. To make any mailing extra special, we highly recommend to get creative and combine your new envelopes with colourful paper.

Available in packs of 25, 50, 100 or 200 envelopes and always in plastic-free product packaging, you can order just as many eco-friendly paper envelopes as you need and when you need them.
