DIY Moving Announcements + Editable Printable

I know I've brought it up a few times in the last several posts and now moving day/week is finally upon us!

One of the things that has been on my to do list (aside from packing, packing, moving, packing) is to send out moving announcements.

Informing everyone of your change in address can be a pain, but not with these cute, DIY, printable moving announcements. Best thing of all, this PDF is editable, right in the program!

Here's what you get:


I've included 2 styles for this printable.

Editing Instructions:

Download the file here.

Open the file in Adobe Reader (You can download Adobe Reader here.)

Just click on the space beneath "Our New Address" and enter your info!



The second page is more customizable:

You can click directly onto the space beneath "We're Moving" and type in your info.

Or

Open a word processor such as Microsoft Word.

Type your desired text and format it to how you want it to look in the printable (change the font, size, spacing, italics, bold, etc)

Select and Copy your formatted text.



Go back to Adobe Reader.

Click on the space underneath "We're Moving" and paste your edited text there.



And you're ready to print.

*Note: you probably won't be able to save your edited changes so I suggest printing several copies of your final draft.

Now the fun part. How you use it, is up to you!

Some suggestions:

1) Print it out on thick card stock, cut up, and send as a postcard.

2) Print it out as a card, place in an envelope and mail out.

3) Or if you want to go all out like me....

I printed out the moving announcement on plain white paper and cut them up, along with some cardboard boxes.

(Not our real address by the way, friends.)
Added an address, a stamp, and here's our moving announcement all ready to go.



If you like this printable and do use it, please let me know! I'd love to hear all about it!
*Use as many times as you like, for personal use.

And now back to regular packing (um programming.)

  6. What a great Idea. This would have been perfect 2 months ago. Hopefully we won't be moving again anytime soon. I'm your newest follower. It would be great if you could stop by my blog Monday and add your project to The More The Merrier Link Party.
