A C4 printed envelope is a larger-sized envelope that’s commonly used for sending important documents, letters, or papers. It’s called “C4” because it’s a standard size that can comfortably hold A4 sheets of paper without needing to fold or crumple them. A4 is the typical size for papers in many countries, so this envelope is a good fit for these documents.
What makes the C4 printed envelope special is that it often comes with a design or text printed on it. This can make the envelope look more attractive or professional, depending on the design. People use these envelopes for business purposes, like sending contracts, reports, or official letters. They can also be used for personal correspondence when you want to add a bit of flair to your mail. Overall, the C4 printed envelope is a practical and stylish choice for sending larger documents.
