Addressing an Envelope

Addressing an envelope should be fairly simple.
  • In the upper-left hand corner should be your name, and underneath that should be your return address.
  • In the upper-right hand corner should be the postage stamp (with the correct postage amount).
  • In the middle-center should be the recipient's name and recipient's address.

    Helpful Tips
  • Print/write all the information on the envelope before stuffing and sealing it so it will be written/printed on a flat surface.
  • If you are writing to a different country, make sure you put it at on the last line of your return address and the recipient's address.
  • If you are writing a friendly letter with a small envelope, you can write the return address on the flap of the envelope if their is no room on the top-left hand corner.
