All of these cards are quarter-fold cards, although they vary in orientation. You can print the cards on one standard sheet of paper or card stock without the need of a duplex printer or otherwise flipping the card and printing on the back.
Once printed, fold the short ends of the card together so that the cover is on one side and the interior is on the other. Then fold the card in half once more.
