"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. :)"
Sending cards in the mail is becoming a lost art, and you’re not alone if you aren’t sure how to fill out an envelope properly. Whether you’re preparing to invite friends to a birthday party, sending a thank-you card for a job interview or mailing invitations for your wedding, here are a few things you should know about how to address an envelope.
Your name and address should always appear in the top left corner of the back of the envelope. You can save time and effort by using a convenient address label instead of writing the information by hand. Choose labels that attract attention, such as red address labels. Bright colors catch the eye and help the recipient immediately see who sent the card or letter.
The name and address of the recipient should be listed halfway from the top of the envelope and slightly to the right-hand-side. Start by writing down the recipient’s first and last name. Adding a prefix such as “Mr.” is appropriate for formal letters. Immediately below the name, write the recipient’s full address (including street address, city, state and zip code or postal code). If you are sending your letter to someone located outside of the country, include the country abbreviation as well.
Abbreviations such as “Attn:” (attention) and “c/o” (care of) should be used when sending professional correspondence, and should be listed directly below the recipient’s name. Using the “c/o” abbreviation is the better option if you don’t know the address of the intended recipient and are sending your letter to one of the recipient’s good friends or family members. When the recipient sees the abbreviation “c/o” followed by another person’s name, they will know you are entrusting them to deliver the letter to the correct person.
Practically everyone will have the experience of sending mail at some point in their lifetime. Although sending a letter or card in the mail may seem foreign to you at first, after a few times you will become more comfortable with the process.
