How do you address your envelopes?

  1. Hand write

  2. Use labels or printer

  3. Don't send Christmas cards

    Just wanted to know how most you address your Christmas cards....either hand write them out or use labels/printer? I remember reading in a thread last year that someone thought if you hand wrote your return address and target address that it was less professional than labels. I always thought hand written was better....more personal.

    Handwrite. Adds a personal touch I guess.

    I agree with the personal touch. Especially sign them. Well I sign the Christmas cards but not the invoices.

    Ordered Envelopes with return address pre-printed. I printed cust address on them, my handwriting also sucks.

    If your client base is large, you will need to use a mail merge program and print them using labels.

    I use window envelopes for invoicing and hand write all Christmas or well wishing cards, I think it lets the customer know you put a personal interest into sending it to them.

    I design the envelopes on the computer, using nice font and colors and some Christmas art.
