Thank you. Tried somebody else's calculator and it suggester paper the size of a bedsheet!Just tried out your measurements and produced a perfect box for my item. :-)

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!

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.

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!

I have the new envelope punch board - white with gold print - and I can't read the numbers. My eyes are not good enough. Your calculator is so helpful.

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!

Hi, I am trying to make an envelope for a 4 1/8 x 4 1/8 card. . I understand the 5 inch paper but not 13/16 paper punch. Could you clear this up for me .plz

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.

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.

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.

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. . .

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 ;-)

Just opened my envelope punch board, which has been sitting in my closet for a couple of years, only to find out that it is one of the older versions with the calculation errors. Not even sure if I can still get the correction sticker that was available awhile back. Many, many thanks to you and yours for developing this calculator. My envelopes are perfect.

Thank you so much , I was searching how to make a bigger size envelope for a card I have made and thought it was impossible til I found your post . Thanks so much. Your husband is a gem.

Just came across your calculator and I am so appreciative that you've kept this available for us to use! Waving from Akron, Ohio, USA and saying thank you!!

Thank you so much! Kristina Werner's blog has added a link to your site on one of her projects. Thank you Kristina and thank you Lena ( and husband) !!

I can't thank you (and your husband) enough for this calculator. I spent such a long time yesterday trying to make a weird sized envelope and got so annoyed at myself! I got the info. for the site from Kristina Werner's Youtube channel.

I'm so excited to find this but I can't get it to generate. I clicked on thick card and then I put in 5 ½ inches by 4 ¼ inches and I can't get any results. What am I doing wrong?

I figured out what I did wrong! I didn't put the measurements in as decimal. When I did that it worked! Thank you SOOOO MUCH!!! It works beautifully. Hugs to you and your wonderful hubby!

My card is 5 5/8 x 4 3/8. When I used the calculator for a flat card I ended up with an envelope that measures 4 5/16 x 4 7/8, too small. Did it twice with same result. What did I do wrong?

Hi! I tried your measurements and my envelope resulted in 5 11/16 x 4 7/16. A perfect fit. The two points that you may want to pay attention to while using my calculator with the board are: the paper sheet must be _square_ each side measuring to what is identified as "Paper size"; and the "Punch point" is something that you measure only once on the board. When you have your first score line, you do not use any measurements anymore. You just rotate the paper on the board aligning it to the score line.

I have just had my first disaster. I set my measurements at 6.5 x 4.75 inches. It tells me to cut my paper 8-13/16 & score at 3-13/16. The envelope is 6-5/16 x 5 inches - way too small.

Score at 3 -13/16 is ONLY for the FIRST score line! Then you rotate your paper and align it in accordance with the rules of the board for scoreline/punch 2, 3 and 4.

Great app. I had to figure out how to enter fractions above one inch to 16ths....makes it an improper fraction! In my excel program I formatted the cells to fractions up to 16ths. I will definitely use this over and over. Tell your hubby THANKS.

I just tried 9x4... 1 layer, paper size 10 1/16, punch point 3 1/4. No problem with the board. However, if for whatever reason you need to mark a point that is beyond the board's size - just use a regular ruler to extend the arm. Align, say, 3" on the board with the 3" on your long ruler.

I'm trying to make a small rectangle shape envelope but I'm only given square paper sizes.. How do I figure a 3 1/4 x 2 3/8 (in inches) size. Thanks..I do love this gadget.

You always start with a square sheet. That's the rule of the WeRM board. Then you score the corners away. Just enter the size of the card into the calculator - the graphic will appear displaying a square (your original paper sheet), the score lines "cutting off" the corners, and the big green thing in the middle - that's your card.

Unfortunately, there is no iOS app version at the moment, but you can always use the calculator on any OS phone by opening this very page in the phone's internet browser.

Hi, genspy. 123 is a standard board. The Mini is the board that is officially called Mini (envelopes punchboard), it is almost half the size of a regular envelope board and makes smaller envelopes.

Hi! Thank you soo much for this! I ahve a regular punch boar but I can't for the life of me understand how to find the score line 2 15/16"! My paper size is 4.5x3.5 inches! Thank you for your awesome work! <3

The board's precision is 1/8", my calculator gives 1/16" for even more accuracy, so 2 15/16" is even closer to 3 than the board's 2 7/8", it is actually in the middle between 2 7/8" and 3". This is where you put the corner of your square sheet of paper. The paper sheet has to be _square_ ! The size is indicated by Paper Size in the calculator. All the four sides of your paper sheet must be equal to this number.

The Paper Size is the size of the paper sheet you are using for making the envelope. It is different from the size of your _card_ which is the measurements of your card entered into the Length and Width fields. These are the numbers you enter manually yourself, the rest is calculated from them.

Hello, Was unable to comment on your post in Blog on the We T Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board Calculator. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! When We R Memory Keepers discontinued their app for this I was so sad as I used it a lot. WAs ecstatic to find your post. You made my day. Suzann

Thank you for sharing this tool. Would you please confirm if I want my envelope 6cm x 4 cm, it says the size paper is 11,49 (= 1.50 + 4.24 + 4.24 + 1.50) those 4 number in the parethesis.. what is that? my paper has to be 11,49 cm one side and the oher? thanks!

6cm x 4cm is never 11.49, so check the settings you are using - the type of the board (Standard/Mini); the Metric/Imperial measurement type; the type of the card.

Anyways, the numbers in the brackets just explain how the main number is calculated. They do not have any practical value for a card maker, only for those, who are curious about the mathematics of the process. You are free to ignore them completely and just use the one outside the brackets to make your envelope.

How would I convert these results to use on a scoreboard which needs two sets of score lines? I have a Martha Stewart scoreboard which comes with an accesory for scoring envelopes, but only has instructions for a few standard sizes.

Edited. It is not exactly the same system, but you probably could use my calculator with a bit of adjustment. In theory, my calculator gives a number that is the measurement from the corner of your square paper to the middle of the tiny triangular you cut out when folding the fully scored envelope. The fixed distance from the paper edge to the internal (middle) corner of the tiny cut-out is 1 cm (3/8 inch). Say, my calculator says 4 inches. You measure 4 inches with your board straight, without the extra triangular, mark the point on your paper, and then draw a perpendicular to the edge line down 3/8 inch long. Mark the end of it with a dot. Now it is time for the extra triangular tool. Rotate your paper 45* anti-clockwise to have the marked edge against it. You may have to shift the paper up or down a bit with your scoring tool positioned on the 3/8 dot until you feel some scoring line under it. Any scoring line, stop shifting and score. This will be your first scoring line. Rotating the paper 180* and repeating the process gives you another line. At this point you probably will already know how to get the other two. This is my theory. I do not have the extra piece for my Martha Stewart board, so I cannot check my theory myself, but theoretically it should work! Please, let me know if it did!

Trying to make gift boxes (box envelopes) and the size was SO off... I tried 3 times to make sure it wasn't user error. I just bought this board in Oct '24 and they are still selling it with a chart that makes no sense??? Thank you, your numbers resulted in the correct size envelope.

wow thank you!!! I've been pulling my hair out trying to work out envelope sizes and this worked perfectly! Straight to the bookmark list!
