Hey this is Anna Skye and in this video I’m going to show you the secret to neatly hand address invitation envelopes. And I struggle with my penmanship but these little cheat sheet templates that I’ve made make addressing envelopes a snap. And the secret is these perfectly sized templates that I’ve made. You print it out on a PDF like this. This is completely free. Print it on the heaviest weight paper you can get through your printer. And I use an X-actor knife and I cut out each window and then the outer shape and then you have a template you can use over and over, even after your wedding’s taken place, anytime you need to send a card. The link to download this is in the description of the video. And once you have it cut out, this is the 4-bar size, you just center it on the envelope and you start writing in using each of these lines to space your letters. And make sure you have enough room for the stamp. And everything aligns straight and perfectly each time.
So I’m going to do a sample for you so you can get the idea. So this is a cream colored A7 envelope and I’m just going to align my template here. And in these examples I did them left aligned, but in this example I’m going to show you how to center them. So these black dots are the exact center. My name is Anna Skye so I’m going to start here and I’m just going to do S K Y E. And then I know I’m four letters for Anna, A N N A, over here. So each of these lines is a letter or a space. And then I’ll do my address which is 99 Main Street, so I’m going to come over here, I’m going to go 9 9… number 12.
And I try to make sure that my text extends all the way to the top and the bottom of the little window. And that is in Pismo Beach, so that’s… Pismo Beach, California. 93449. And then I lift it off and voila, a perfectly centered and straight hand-addressed envelope. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Let me know what you think and how your envelopes turned out..
