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:
- Label sticker paper – I use the Avery White Mailing Labels (full sheets) see below
- Xacto Knife
- Cutting mat
Step 1: Lightly score the middle line by aligning your ruler to the dash-marks at the top and bottom of your page. (Do not cut all of the way through!) The scoring creates an even fold. Step 2: Cut the lines in the following order but do NOT cut to the edge. Step 3: Pull out each label carefully You should end up with a scrap piece of paper looking like thisStep 4: Fold the label at the spot you made your light score Step 5: Peel off the backing and carefully place your label on the envelope Be sure to position your label so it does not get covered by the back flap when the envelope is sealed. Step 6: Stamp and mail it!
