Envelope Punch Board Calculator


We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board Any Size Calculator

(also works for the newer We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board and  the Joy!Crafts punch board - card & envelope maker)

The board originally comes with a table of sizes, which unfortunately is not always useful if you make non-standard size cards (happens a lot to me! :) Moreover, there is no mention of any boxes that actually can also be made using this board. So, my dear husband made me this simple any size envelope/box calculator. Thank you Honey!
NEW!!! Now also available as an App on Google Play:

Settings

Card type:
Select the type of your card:
1) a flat card (the envelope will be very snug)
2) a card with padded layers and/or 3D elements (the envelope will be bigger in size and give more room to accommodate a thicker card)
3) a card with fluffy 3D flowers is better off with a box.
Dimensions:
Use metric or imperial to specify the size of your card.

  12. Just found your blog doing a search on metric - not for me but for a crafting friend that asked me if the envelope Punch Board would do metric - this is an amazing program your hubby developed - I will give it a try - love my Envelope Punch Board - never made a box with it - but will try - I also just purchased the mini envelope punch board - these are both fabulous tools that I enjoy using [PS I was blessed to WIN the first one and blessed to win a GC to purchase the mini one] have a lovely week and thanks!

  15. Thank you for offering this. Is there a way to use this generator to get an exact size?

    I have used the measurements on the envelope tool itself, on the AC's generator and with custom measurements from AC itself and I simply cannot get the size envelope I want. The same size as a commercially made A2 envelope.

    Here's the problem: I want to use commercially made clear -sleeves and -boxes for presentation. Either the envelope is too big (most of the time) to fit in a sleeve, or too small for the card. I've tried fudging measurements by 1/16 of an inch at a time. I've made 30 envelopes just trying to get the exact size of a commercial envelope and I've come up empty handed. I'm about to lose my mind and wanted these for Mother's Day. Any ideas for how I can conquer this task? Thanks.

  16. Hello, L BT! You may try to use my calculator to meet your purpose by selecting the _1_layer_card_ option and entering the size values 1/16" smaller than the desired envelope size. Do you mean A2 (4 3/8 x 5 3/4)? I've just tried 4 5/16 x 5 11/16 as the "card" size and it produced an A2 envelope. Hope it helps!

    1. Glad you find it useful! As to an iOS version... Not in the near future, I'm afraid. Primarily because we don't have a single Apple device in our house! Sorry!

    1. Hi Joan,
      For a _flat_ 1 layer card size 4 1/8 x 4 1/8, you have to use a _square_ sheet of paper sized 6 11/16". Use it on the envelope making board by placing the top left hand corner where the measuring scale is at 3 3/8". Hold the paper in this position, score where the scoring line lies and punch. Turn the paper 90* and proceed according to the WE R Memory Keepers instructions. Score and punch all the 4 sides of the paper.

      If the card is not flat, select the "Thick Card" option in my calculator.

      Hope it helps. :)

    1. Dear Chris,

      Unfortunately, the We R Memory Keepers board is not meant for "pizza" style boxes. The box that it makes is similar to an envelope, a thick 3-d envelope.

      Delete
  27. The Scor Pal and similar scoring boards are usually used for more traditional types of boxes. They also usually have manuals about how to use the boards for making boxes. Or you can look up online, but for the Scor Pal, not the We R Memory Envelope board.

  33. This is a wonderful tool and thank you for developing it and sharing it. . . but: For those of us with poor vision who struggle to craft, the pale gray font on the beautiful green background is almost impossible to read. It's far easier to see black letter against a white background (and a large font would be great, too_. I took my excellent vision for granted or many decades. . . please appreciate yours. Thanks for considering a change or perhaps a link to a page with a vision impaired calculator. Thanks again. And I apologize for typos, can't see the writing. . .

  34. Oh, that's wonderful !! Just bought a punch board and the "official" app doesn't seem to run anymore on my Android. 10000 thanks to you and your husband... hugs from France ;-)
