How to Address Save the Date Postcards
As staying organized will help you a lot in sending postcard save the dates without fuss, you need to gather addresses for everyone you plan to invite to the wedding before starting out with the design. Having a spreadsheet handy is very important as you don’t want them to be addressed to wrong people. These simple steps will help you to address your postcard save the dates.
- On the right side of your mailing panel, write down your guest names and their complete address clearly. Depending on which style you want to use, you can add Mr. and Mrs before their name. Pro Tip: For married couples, consider combining their last names. For unmarried couples, write out their complete names with an & between them.
- If you’re inviting children under 18, list down their names under their parents name
- Don’t use nicknames. It is one of the reasons your postcard is not reaching your guest. Use full names if possible so it is easier to notice especially if your guest is living in an apartment building or sharing their place with their big family.
- Spell out the full address and don’t miss out any details. Make sure you have the street name, number, suburb, city, postal code and country if you’re delivering international mail.
