If you are using an inner envelop and outer envelope, the fully assembled invitation suite should be placed into the inner envelope, so when the envelope flap is opened, the printed side of the invitation is visible. Then, insert the inner envelope face_up into the outer envelope. The handwritten guest names on the inner envelope should be visible when the outer envelope is opened. If you are using just an outer envelope, insert the fully assembled invitation suite into the envelope. You should see the printed side of the invitation when the envelope flap is opened.
Think Ahead: depending on your invitation choices, you may need as much as two months more for design and printing time, so be sure not to cut it too close. Ordering your invites early really saves on stress and money for rush fees and expedited shipping. In the long run, if you can, it is really worth it not to put off printing until the last minute. Also consider all of your components when ordering your invitations. Work with your stationer to maximize your $$. For instance, if your are ordering from a larger printing company we recommend ordering announcements, maps, thank you notes and even placecards at the same time if you can. You save money on proofs and then you also save on one_time shipping for all parts.
