Letter Writing: A Brief History
The first recorded letter was found to be sent around 500 BC! First handwritten in Persia, early forms of letters found themselves written on all sorts of interesting materials. From leaves to animal hides, letters were basically written on anything and everything.
Different minerals and plant-based matter made rudimentary ink to write with. From sticks to small bones, rough writing materials helped shaped how letters became formed. Throughout time, the way different cultures wrote to one another developed alongside technological advances.
As discoveries became uncovered like the use of linen for paper, letter writing increased. Pretty soon, the world began writing letters to their friends and loved ones. Each country developed their own basic postal system but eventually, the Universal Postal Union (UVU) became adopted by over 190 countries to form regulations and guidelines for mailing letters.
Postal Services Impact Prices
The United Kingdom made reforms back in the mid-1800s to offset changing costs to delivering mail. Prepayment became possible, making it easier to send a letter without having to worry about the cost of postage for the recipient. This advancement was later adapted by other postal services.
Letter writing was all but indestructible once major technological advances came into play. With the invention of the internet came electronic mail that is quickly received within seconds. While these advancements made it easier than ever to reach someone, writing letters is still a very popular form of communication for some.
A5 Pink Paper Styles
As mentioned, letter writing with paper has changed time and time again throughout history. So many different factors helped mold the different paper styles we see today.
Traditionally, paper comes from wood pulp. The cellulose fibers process with other chemicals to create sheets of paper. These are mechanically processed worldwide and used by most.
Manufacturers cut the paper different sizes for many uses. Our pink khadi paper pack comes sized as A5 or 6” X 8.25″. Our optimal envelope size for this offering is our C6 paper size envelopes or 4.5” x 6.5″.
C6 Paper Size Envelope Styles
Not all paper and envelopes come sized the same. Depending on the use, paper envelope sizing will vary. As stated above, our khadi offering in pink when folded for letter writing is great for our C6 paper size envelope.
Who determines paper size? As paper became manufactured for different utilizations, international sizing classifications made it clear what would work. In the United States, paper and envelopes have classifications that name themselves differently from international classifications.
When looking for the right fit, it’s best to follow international classifications for your letter writing. These classifications have become adopted by almost all paper and envelope suppliers worldwide, making it simple to find what will work best for you.
Khadi Paper Manufacturing
While we all know that basic paper comes from trees, that isn’t the case of all sheets. Our khadi offerings don’t come from trees at all. They’re made from recycled cotton rags.
Cotton rags from old shirts or other garments make up the pulp used for khadi paper sheets. Paper artisans process khadi sheets by hand and with very little chemical processing. In fact, khadi sheets are pretty sustainable and eco-friendly.
The water used in manufacturing khadi paper becomes reused by farmers for the irrigation of crops. All in all, this paper helps not only the consumer but the ones who make the sheets.
Other C6 Paper Size Uses
Our khadi sheet pack comes with 20 sheets available, just like our C6 paper size envelope offering (also in pink). While these offerings are ideal for letter writing, khadi sheets are also perfect for:
Stand out against traditional invitations. No matter the event, our khadi paper in varied pink shades works well for many different parties. From wedding showers to birthday parties, no one will forget your invitation when you use our fine khadi paper.
