Moving Announcements

Instead of buying separate moving announcements and a new address stamp, why not use a new address stamp to make your moving announcements? Here is one way to do it.

Create a template on the computer for your text. Four per page works well. Here we included boxes to know where to cut, but you can also create crop marks. Leave enough area for the stamp. Do a test print on plain office paper first to make sure your size and spacing is correct, then print on a fun, laser friendly paper. Stamp, trim and adhere to a card.

We made our template smaller than the card so we could have a contrasting border. Before adhering, we used an accent stamp to create a patterned border. If your paper feels good without a card, simply print, stamp and trim. An accent stamp placed on the envelope is always a nice touch.

If you love to create and have a friend that has just moved, consider giving them an address stamp and making them some announcements. It makes for a special housewarming present and will be one last thing they have to worry about as they search for silverware.
