The inner envelope should be addressed with only the name(s) of the person(s) to whom it is sent in the form you would use in conversation (Example: Uncle Bob and Aunt Caroline, or Tom and Helen, or Grandmother and Grandfather). If children are included, list them by name on the inner envelope only (Example: Uncle Bob, Aunt Caroline, Susan, and Jason).

CELEBRATE YOUR GRADUATION!

4 5 6 7 8

Name Card (pg. 4), identifying you as the graduate, should be placed in the slots inside your official Custom Graduation Announcement (pg. 4).
