The Rectangle Snake

The Rectangle Snake is the mail-friendly cousin of the classic Snake fold. The greatest benefit of this format is its ability to offer the same physical characteristics and opening experience of the classic square format Snake fold, built in a proportion that will not incur a surcharge for hand sorting at the post office. Splurge on the format, save on the postage. It’s a win-win.

The Rectangular Snake fold is 17.66” by 12.63” unfolded and finishes to a 6” by 4.25” rectangular format. It can be mailed without the protection of an envelope as long as the address block is on the final fold and 3 tabs are added: 2 on the side and 1 on the top. This format also fits into an A6 envelope.

For other mail-friendly Snake Fold options, please see the Traveling Snake Alt.
