You mean apart from getting a tent back in its bag?

An invitation card for instance, folded in half, and positioned with the fold at the top.

Unless you mean a simple fold across the grain, I have no idea.

What does it mean to you?

See u have solved it
What they are talking about is a tent card - a tent card has a base and is used for desk calenders - what I am talking about is a tent fold.
I will talk to them tomorrow

For me, I would assume this is folded to make a "table tent"--a long piece, folded sort of like a double gate fold, except the inside legs are very short, and are intended to be attached to each other to form the bottom side of a triangle.
