Here are a few tips for setting up your template for guest addressing. If you have any questions after reviewing, please let me know!
etiquette & General Guidelines:
Line 1: This is used for a single name, or for a married couple with the same last name (Mr. and Mrs. John Doe).
Line 2: For married or unmarried couples with different last names, you would put the second name on this line. This line can also be used for "and family", "and guest" or children's first names (only if under the age of 18).
Line 3/4/5: This is typically used for the address, and apartment numbers can go on their own line if it's too long.
- Typically, you would spell out everything that is not numeric (street, road, boulevard, the state name, etc.).
- Anyone over the age of 18 should receive their own invitation, even if they still live with their parents who are also invited.
- For the country, you would only use this for mailing outside of your own country.
submitting your spreadsheet
First, you will want to check for spelling, capitalization, extra spaces, and extra returns (enters) in your spreadsheet. Please be cautious of lines that are too long, as they may wrap and hyphenate on your envelope.

Because I do work with several clients at the same time, please save the file with your last name: i.e. Smith Guest Addressing.xls
Email your sheet to firstname.lastname@example.org, and upon receipt I will provide a one-time snapshot so you can review your addresses. Once you have provided the final template as well as design approval, we can finalize your order!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
