INSTRUCTIONS & BASIC ADDRESSING ETIQUETTE

 

Titles, Names, Addresses, Roads, City and States must be spelled out with proper punctuation. NO ABBREVIATIONS

 

PLEASE NOTE, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE YOUR LIST IS PROPERLY FORMATTED AND SPELLCHECKED.

MISSING ADDRESSES & MISSPELLINGS WILL PRINT AS SUCH. 

Please, do not use decorative fonts, as we may not have the font you are using and it may affect the proper formatting you set up. Decorative font formatting will be done at the time we print matching the font used in your invitations. 

 

Must be in ONE CONTINUOUS LIST, with no spaces or blank rows. 

PLEASE Do not set up in a label format

Do not setup in any program other than the template provided.

PLEASE refrain from using your space bar as a “tab” or to create space in front of or behind your data.

When we format the addressing, this causes unintentional uneven alignments.

Please understand it is our policy to return a list to the client for any excessive editing.  Otherwise "cleanup editing" will incur an extra fee to be determined on time at a minimum of 50c per address.

 

Please make sure your guest’s names and addresses are properly spelled, properly titled and proper punctuation. Only you know the proper spelling. We cannot take responsibility for misprints. Reprints will be at expense of the client. (cost of  extra envelopes, shipping & printing)
