"I just received my address labels. When I placed my order my only concern was that the photo might be too small. Not only did the photo fit perfectly but the clarity of the photo and type was sharp and crisp also. With so much of today's correspondence conducted by email and text messaging, I miss the now archaic means of communicating with personal correspondence sent by post. I'm looking forward to once again writing some letters, putting them in envelopes with my personalized photo return address labels attached. One thing for certain, these personalized labels with the photo of me and my dog featured prominently will stand out and won't be discarded as junk mail. P.S. In the photo, that's me in front; my ever-watchful companion is the one behind my head looking like a pillow - just in case there might have been any confusion."
"I just got my set of address labels on the mail yesterday and they look wonderful! And the best part is that I got them for free. I have used Shutterfly to create photo books, cards, calendars, and print my pictures but this is the first time that I use this site to order address labels. Last year I got a coupon for a free set of address labels but I didn’t use it because I don’t normally use address labels but this year I decided to give them a try and I’m glad I did. When I opened the envelope and saw them, I said “Wow, they look better than I thought.” I am very happy with my order. The hardest part was to choose a design. Shutterfly offers a variety of colors and styles to choose from, you can even add a picture to your labels. It took me probably half an hour to pick a design but it was worth every minute because I feel very satisfy with the design I picked. And the best part was that I didn’t have to pay for the labels, just shipping and handling which was less than four dollars. I always try to take advantage of their offers and until now I haven’t been disappointed, so I encourage you to do the same. Try Shutterfly, you won’t be disappointed."
"Thought these labels will be nice for a granddaughter to use on her graduation thank you notes. Just wish her name was a bit bigger."
"My labels are classically beautiful! I love Shutterfly!"
"It printed out great! Great quality, no complaints here. :)"
Ordering sophisticated address labels and wedding invitations may seem like the easiest part of planning a wedding, and it can be as long as you know the unspoken rules of wedding announcement etiquette. Here are four things to keep in mind if you want to avoid making embarrassing mistakes when ordering and sending out your invitations.
If you are not great with grammar, have someone else proofread your wedding invitation wording before it’s set in stone. This will help you avoid embarrassing spelling and grammatical mistakes that will be seen by all of your wedding guests.
If you try to write your own return address one very single announcement envelope, you may end up developing carpel tunnel symptoms. Even if you don’t do any long-term damage to your wrists, your handwriting is almost guaranteed to become sloppy after repetitively writing your address on hundreds of envelopes. Save yourself the trouble (and the headache) by purchasing return address labels. Order labels that match your wedding invitations or opt for rich brown address labels if you prefer more neutral colors.
Don’t give guests too long to respond to an RSVP or they will put off responding until they eventually forget to respond completely. On the flipside, you don’t want to give guests too little time to respond in case they are away on vacation or a business trip when your announcement arrives. The ideal RSPV deadline to shoot for is between 2 – 4 weeks after your guests receive their invitations.
Forgetting to pre-stamp reply envelopes is a big wedding faux pas that should be avoided at all costs. Include personalized postage stamps that match your wedding invitations on the reply envelopes if you want to tie everything together and make a classy statement.
Every perfect wedding begins with perfect announcements. Now that you are aware of these common mistakes people make when ordering and mailing announcements, it should be easy to avoid them.
