Teller Tent Card

The Teller Tent Card is designed to make two tent cards on a single sheet of legal-sized card stock. Just print, cut down the middle to make two tents and fold. One side faces the teller and gives reminders of suspicious activity to watch for. The other side gives tips to older customers on how to protect themselves against financial abuse. If you can't print on card stock, print the teller tent cards on regular legal-sized paper and glue to card stock so they can stand alone.
