If we are using company envelopes they are white, and 'note card' size, not letter size - the note card is branded with the company logo.  If I'm mailing a personal note, where I make my own cards, it's all different colors.  If we are sending out mailers for 'Home Sold' or 'Home Listed' it is colored postcards on heavy stock Will Hamm.
