Any flat cards that are 4 x 6?
Posted: Thursday, September 13, 2018 10:58:24 AM
If there's a size list somewhere, please point me to it, but if there isn't, and if you know of a 4 x 6 card, I'd love to know about it. Without any dimensions being supplied for the template blanks, I'm pretty much at a loss for a huge variety of the paper products.

Hey Colorwash, we don't have a flat card in exactly 4 x 6" unfortunately Sad . We do have 4.5 x 6.25 if that is any use to you here

Thanks, Aisling, but it won't help, not when designing recipe cards anyway, which is what prompted me to ask. Recipe file boxes are designed to fit either 3 x 5 or 4 x 6 cards, which means the recipe cards we design using postcards won't fit. They're just a tad too high. The size you've mentioned is both too high and too wide.

Please whisper in someone's ear: 4 x 6 cards would be really nice! Grin

3x5 is index card size. They would be useful for a lot of things

Thank you. Sometimes a whisper is more effective than a shout.

The 4x6 index card is what hardcore recipe savers tend to use, but isn't 3x5 one of the current paper sizes? Maybe a jumbo business card? I think I saw it, but thinking isn't quite the same as stating fact.

I was thinking about this today when there's a big sale on recipe cards. What an odd assortment shows up!

1. Postcards (which don't like you to put them in the recipe card section of the marketplace)
2. Lots of 8.5 x 11" divider pages on letterhead paper
3. 8.5 x 11" recipe pages on letterhead
4. 4.25 x 5.5 flat invitation cards
5. 3.5 x 5" flat invite cards

As Colorwash says above, it would be really nice to have a standard recipe card size of 4x6 or 3x5. I guess 5x7 is an option, but that's a bit big for most people.

When I first started making recipe cards here, it dawned on me that postcards were all wrong because file boxes sized for them don't exist, so I stopped making them.

Yes, a 4x6 card would be perfect.

If we had both boxes and the cards to fit them, that would really be nice! If the size doesn't fit the wedding market, we're not going to see 4x6 though.

I searched online like mad for a box sized to fit our postcards, but there weren't any at all, which means we won't have boxes for them here.

Another disadvantage of designing on postcards is that they are not a recognized size when you're looking for recipe cards and want to sort by size. So, in addition to the marketplace not favoring them and wanting you to re-categorize them if you try to call them recipe cards, I think using postcards is a really bad idea.

That was precisely my own decision--to not make recipe cards. I made a few from-my-kitchen-to-yours cards of which I sold some, but the amount of work involved wasn't worth the paltry profit.
