On Tent cards File Rotation is one of the most important issues. If your design is in horizontal direction on the card then the top side needs to be printed upside down but the inside both top and bottom will be in same direction.
Here is a sample that shows how your tent card needs to be set up and rotated in order to proper printing:
left side is the front side of the folded postcard. As you can see the back of the card is upside down. After folding both sides will be facing down and correct.
the right side image is the inside of the folded card. As you can see the top side and bottom side are in same direction and they are laid out upside down. In that case when you hold the tent card looking at the front side, as you open the card the inside would be laid out correctly from top to bottom.
If you send your file right side up like the example showing below then your cards will be printed incorrectly.
