Sending mail is great and receiving mail is awesome… unless it is a bill but they’re mostly paperless these days.

However, the worst part about sending out holiday cards is addressing all of the envelopes. With this in mind, I thought I’d share my quick trick that you can do too. And BONUS, I am including templates so you can make your own (in Word or whatever program you are comfortable using).

Recently, I worked on labels for a friend’s wedding invites and documented the step-by-step process. You will need the following to make your own:
