Chic Moving Announcements

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

The movers are hired, the boxes are packed!  Soon you’ll be off to a fresh start and you’ll want to share it with all of your family and friends.  Whether you’re moving to a new house a few miles away or jumping across the country, a move can be a stressful time but also a very exciting time for you as well.  From a change of scenery to a brand new house with new appliances or a new job for someone in the family – there’s lots of things to celebrate.

As you close the door to one chapter and open the door to another, you’ll want to share the good news of your move with family and friends, as well as provide them with your new contact information.  At InvitationBox.com we offer chic moving announcements to help you announce your move to your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and clients.  Our moving announcements come in a variety of designs, colors and patterns, depending on your personality and moving-style.  Our cards feature modern designs with skeleton keys, nests, moving boxes, ‘change of a dress’ themes, moving trucks or whimsical cartoon scenes, (like the one above from Doc Milo).  We also offer moving announcements that feature some of the United States most popular states and cities from Georgia to Florida to Texas or California.  If you’re moving to a new state, these are some of our most popular moving announcement designs.

Send your moving announcements out anywhere from the day of your move to a few months after.  There’s no right or wrong, however the sooner your friends and family have your new contact info, the better.  Be sure to include your new address, new phone numbers and maybe even your email address if that will also be changing.  The thought behind a moving announcement is that the recipient will now have all of your current information on one convenient card to keep everything together and handy the next time they want to stop by for a visit or contact you.

Ready to celebrate your big move?  You can also double-up by turning your moving announcement into a housewarming party invitation as well!  Announce your move in the beginning of your announcement, and then at the bottom of the card ask friends and family to join you to celebrate and to come and your new pad!  Treat it like an open house with all of your best friends and serve up some cocktails and appetizers as guests visit with you.  You can also try out your brand new patio or hang out on that new deck you have.
