which way are fold-over rsvp cards folded?

We had response cards printed for our wedding invitations. They are the fold-over kind. Only one of the four sides has print: "please rsvp...". The cards are flat and ready to be folder by us for stuffing into the envelope...Which way are the cards folded over? So that the guest can write a reply on the blank inside? Or so that they open the card up to the printed rsvp "M______" text?

The only one I've gotten recently had the rsvp M_______ on the inside, but I'm not sure about the etiquette of it all.

The cards my wife and I used for our wedding were pre-scored for folding with the M__________ on the outside.

"Most response cards are fold over notes so that your guest can write you a personal message if they desire." Which suggests that the printed part goes on the outside.

Printed outside.

"Please RSVP"? Please respond please? Sorry, in a nitpicky mood this morning.

Best answer: DA! I googled for an hour looking for that answer. Thanks DA!

Most annoying answer: LWK! No, they don't actually read "please rsvp". Get some coffee.

Yeah I know, whine whine whine. Sorry to be annoying. You'd be surprised at how many invites say that though!!

The most formal response cards don't have any text at all beyond the instructions: "The favor of a reply is requested by [date]." That leaves the response entirely up to the recipient, and is more elegant than an M____ with a check next to it.

Glad I could be of help. The Google search which proved fruitful was wedding "response cards" "fold over", and the page I linked was about 15th in the results. (Don't feel bad, I'm making it sound easier than it was and it took quite a bit of trial and error to hit on the right combination of terms.)
