Wedding Thank You Card
The days leading up to and following a wedding can seem like a whirlwind and, before you know it, they turn into weeks. Printing a bundle of cards in advance can help you stay on top of sending notes of thanks to those who send gifts before and after as well as those who attend the ceremony.
Sign a small stack of cards, add postage and your return address to the envelopes and keep them on hand. Anytime you receive a gift, jot a warm note inside a card, address it to the gift-giver and pop it in the mail. (It may also help to keep a list, in case you forget whether you sent a thank you card to someone.)

Printing and Folding
All of the cards provided here are quarter-fold templates, so they do not require any duplex printing. All of the print appears on one side of the page.
Fold the paper horizontally first, so that the picture on the front of the card is facing you and the text on the inside is facing downward. Next, fold the card in half vertically.
Because you do have to fold the cards twice, heavy cardstock may not work well. Although you can purchase special quarter-fold greeting card printer paper, you can also use heavy printer paper or even standard printer paper, although the results will not be as high quality if you use the latter.
