We’ve only owned this house for five months. And lived here for three. Really, it’s not that crazy that I’d only think to tell people now… right? Let’s pretend you agree wholeheartedly, because today I’m sharing the postcards I made to send out saying that it’s official. We live here.
But really, just because I’ve had them printed doesn’t mean I’ve sent them out. I’ve been playing around with handlettering (I’m seriously jealous of anyone with naturally beautiful handwriting) so I’ve only been doing about two or so when I get a minute. That said, I did have fun creating these ‘fake address’ ones to take pictures of. My sister really does live too far away.
Are you moving or know someone that could use these? You can download them for free by clicking the links below. They’re PDF and sized to print on a standard sheet of paper. I printed mine on 100lb cardstock to make them more post card like. The PDF files are lined up to be printed double sided. My print shop (gotta love Staples) cut them for me- but you can save that cost and do it yourself.
Speaking of saving cost- printing invites or postcards yourself is a huge money saver! Say you have 30 family members you want to send to… or more likely 50 or 60. It adds up if you’re getting pretty stationary! Plus add on the stamp… if the design is free and all you have to pay for is the printing and stamp? Well that’s some cash back in the bank. And I’m pretty sure we can all get on board with that.
When you move do you send out your new address? I love getting these cards in the mail because it’s a pain to have to call someone to make sure you have the right address… especially if you want to send a surprise.
