Direction Card and Map Card Etiquette

Direction and map cards are a great way to ensure your guests arrive on time and in a good mood! Whereas map cards typically outline major roads and landmarks in a graphical format, direction cards provide simple, easy to follow directions to the location. .

We've found that direction cards work better than maps in most cases, if you are having difficulty deciding between the two. A clear, easy to read font should be used on the direction cards and with today's internet tools, finding accurate directions to your location(s) is generally easy. Simply pull up your favorite maps provider, such as Google Maps, edit the directions to suit your needs, and you're done.

When you include either of these cards the address information is not provided on the invitation, as it would be redundant.
