    My invites are 8x5 and I am trying to figure out how big I should make my response cards and direction cards.
    What all did everyone else do for their sizing because Im stuck!!

        um they are a little smaller than postcard size, mine were half the size of my invite.

              what i did was figure out the size of the envelope that I wanted them returned first and then made them about a quarter of an inch smaller. Here is a site that lists envelope sizes. Envelope Styles and Sizes

                  yeah Courtney, I didn't want my guests to have fold up the response card to get it in the envelope.

                  BTW, my envelopes were 5 1/8" x 3 5/8" and the response card was 4 5/8" x 3 1/8"
