Moving Announcements

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

One of the most exciting and yet stressful times of anyone’s life, when they decide to move!  Whether it’s a big move across the country or state or a small move a few towns over, we’re sure you’ll be excited of your new pad and want to share the good news with your family and friends…and if nothing else, at least update their address books with your most current contact information.

A moving announcement should be sent just shortly after you have moved to your new residence – think within the first few weeks of moving.  If you forget, you can always send it out a few months after you move.  Your friends and family will want to know about your new pad, so no worries if you’re a little busy with your move for a while.  Plan on sending your moving announcements to family members, close friends, old neighbors or associates you may have become close with at work.  Be sure that you want to share all of the contact information listed on your moving announcement with each person you send the announcement to.

Most moving announcements will include your name, along with any family members names, (or pets names, if you want).  You will then want to inform your reader that you’ve moved and list your new address.  Be sure to include an apartment number or suite number if you have one.  Follow up with your email address and phone number, even if they are not changing.  It’s very convenient for your recipient to have all of your contact details in one location, rather than searching for different pages of an address book or different moving announcements for your most recent information.  If you have a blog or family website, you might want to list that to.

When choosing your moving announcement, choose one that coordinates with your family’s individual style.  If you have a big move, you may want to choose a moving announcement with overstuffed moving boxes, a house scene, a bird’s nest or a skeleton key.  Our more casual moving announcements feature cartoon house scenes, patterned furniture scenes, individual United States themes, moving sign scenes and moving truck scenes.  Care to share a photograph of your new pad with your family standing out front, beside your SOLD sign?  We also offer digital photo moving announcements, which are some of our most popular moving announcements to date.  This is also a great way to share a photo of your new pad with family, especially if they live out of state and won’t be able to visit for a while.
