Step 1: Print the Attached PDF

The attached pdf has three pages. Page one is the instruction page, followed by the fold template. The third page is what prompted me to create a fancy envelope for my business. My printer would jam when I inserted envelopes, so this was the novel solution I came up with.

Step 2: Fold Along Dotted Lines

Fold along dotted lines as shown in the instruction page.

Step 3: Glue or Tape

Glue or tape the sides. Stuff your letter, stick your stamp, and take it to the post office.
