Since the number of mail correspondence includes a huge number of business documents, and advertising brochures, and accounts, and catalogs, this figure seems to you quite a bit small.
Many of these letters areenvelopes, which is quite natural. It's not for nothing that the word "envelope" is translated as "wrap", and the literal translation of it sounds like "clothes for writing." At the same time, such "clothes" can be very different, as well as the most varied in weight and content can be letters.
Today, more and more often presented as a gift to a closenot only necessary things, but also money, so that he could get himself exactly what he longed for: a ticket to rest in an exotic place, another masterpiece in his collection, etc. Buy something like a gift is not always realistic, but to give money for the implementation of the desired, it is feasible.

In the old days, to seal letters,special metal seals, and later sealing wax, which was brought to Europe from China. Hence the expression "to print the letter", that is, to reveal the seals printed on it. It's not easy to make an envelope with a self-made seal, but it is feasible, especially if the seal is unusual.
It does not work out an envelope with a homemade seal, then it's best to simply tie it with a beautiful ribbon - this is another idea for decoration.
In Europe, the envelope appeared in the early 18th century. The first part of his business, the businessman Brever was distributed free of charge to passers-by. So began a real boom in paper envelopes. Everyone wanted to send letters only in an envelope. The sizes of postal items were different, therefore the machine for creation of envelopes of the different form has been designed.
To make an envelope with your own hands of different shapes and sizes, you need only imagination. The main thing is that the banknotes should be placed in it freely, without any hesitation.
If you do not know how to determine the size of the envelope,we do simply. Choose a sheet of paper for the base. We put money on it and wrap it in paper, leaving a little free space on the sides, gluing the edges, decorating. Now a simple and beautiful envelope with your own hands is ready.
The popularity of sending mail inenvelopes grew every day. This led to the fact that in the 19th century in England, by the color of the envelope, it was possible to determine on which day it was written. For Sunday white envelopes were preferred, for Monday - light blue, and on Friday the letters were written using a silver envelope. Now there is no such strict preference, but if you want to create an unusual envelope yourself, then for the basis you can use paper of any color and texture.
