    Thank you so much for your “how to” video! This is the most helpful website that I have found. I have searched and searched for invitation kits, and this is the first time I feel confident in actually purchasing my invitations. Thank You!

    Hi Meghan,

    It’s great to hear that your comfort level has be lifted since watching our video. Thank you for your great feedback. Please remember that we are here to help you even after you have purchased your invitations. If you have any questions, we are just an e-mail or a phone call away.

    How is the bottom side of the invitation (where the response card is placed), attached to the invitation?

    Hi S,

    I think you’re referring the to pocket. Think of a Pocket Fold in three sections. The top section is the flap. The middle section is the space where you glue your invitation card. The bottom section is the pocket where you place additional items like your Response Card. The pocket itself is adhered to the bottom third section of the card. All three sections are attached from a single piece of card stock. The actual Pocket Folds arrive to you glued and assembled. The hard work has already been done for you.

    If you’d like to dig a bit deeper and see how a Pocket Fold can be made at home, see our article, Make Your Own Pocketfolds With Free Templates, Instructions. This will show you exactly how the card stock paper is cut and adhered to make a homemade Pocket Fold in a DIY environment, unlike our production environment.

    I’ve been looking all over the internet for an answer to this question (with no luck):
    Can pocketfold sets be assembled and sent in the mail WITHOUT an outer envelope? I’m concerned with saving paper (from an environmental standpoint) and would like to just spray adhere my invitations to the pocketfold, use postcard-style response cards (pre-stamped with postcard postage) and just seal em up, putting the mailing address and postage right on the back side of the pocketfold… NO ENVELOPES. Will the post office allow it??

  6. JB says:

    Hi Staci,

    Great question! Although we always recommend sending Pocket Folds in mailing envelopes, the Post Office (at least our local PO) says that they can be mailed without placing them in mailing envelopes provided that you seal the top flap. The PO rep we talked to suggested using an Envelope Seal or sticker. When we inquired about also securing the side openings with envelope seals, the rep agreed but cautioned against using any staples they cause problems in their equipment. Envelope seals would be a better choice for securing the sides.

    We would still recommend that you enclose your Pocket Fold in a mailing envelope, but if you would still like to mail without an envelope, at least check with your local Post Office to get their best recommendation.

    CAN I JUST MAIL THE POCKET INVITE WITH OUT PUTTING IT IN AN ENVELOPE AND USE A STICKER TO CLOSE IT?

    • Kristen says:

      We do not recommend mailing pockets without envelopes because even with a sticker to keep it closed, you run the risk of the flaps being caught up in the sorting machinery or in transit, and your invitation getting torn. In addition, without an envelope, the pocket fold itself would get quite marked up, and would not look as nice upon arrival.

    This video was most helpful. Thanks so much. I’ll definitely be ordering some of these pocket folds from you.

    I’m ordering your square pocket folds and coordinating square envelopes to DIY my wedding invites, but I’m wondering what to order as far as an adhesive goes to attach the actual invitation itself? Is this the same product you’re using? http://www.lcipaper.com/DOTS.html

    If not, what do you suggest? Thanks in advance 🙂
