4. Response Card (With the print facing you, tuck the card in the flap of response envelope with the envelope behind the card.  Remember to place a stamp on the response envelope)

STUFF THE ENVELOPE 

1. Place the above stack of items inside the inner envelope with items facing the back of the envelope

2. Informally address the inner envelope (ex—John and Jane; Tim and Donna Smith)

3. Turn envelope over, but do NOT seal this envelope

4. Insert the inner envelope into the larger, outer envelope (The informal name on the inner envelope faces the back, or flap side, of the outer envelope.  This way, your guest will see their names when they pull out the inner envelope)

5. Address the outer envelope and prepare for mailing

 

SEND THEM OUT
