Mr. John Jones
and Guest

To a Married Couple: Mr. and Mrs. John Jones

To a Married Couple Who Uses Different Last Names, unmarried couple living together: 
Mr. John Jones
Mrs. Jane Smith

Families: 
Mr. and Mrs. John Jones
and Family

or

Distinguished Titles: 
The Honorable Mary Thomas and Lieutenant Jonathan Anderson, U.S. Navy or Captains John and Jane Thomas, U.S. Navy


 

USING THE TEMPLATE

Each "Line" on the template represents a row on the envelope, as shown below. Note that Line 4 can also be the apartment number if applicable.

Apartment Example:
(Line 1) Mr. and Mrs. John Jones
(Line 2) and family
(Line 3) 1234 Street Road
(Line 4) Apartment 4B
(Line 5) New York, New York 56789

 

A few helpful tips:
- Please do not include any additional text, notes, spaces, returns or empty rows in the spreadsheet. Everything will print except for the Line Header.
- It is not recommended going longer than five lines on the envelope
- It is important to keep each line as short as possible so we don't have to shrink the font too small and to avoid wrapping lines.
