Moving? Don’t forget your moving announcements!
There are many people to notify about an upcoming move, but it’s not always convenient to make the announcement. It’s easy to tell people you frequently see in person: coworkers, neighbors, the friend you have lunch with each week. But there are several other people to tell (just think about all the families who send you Christmas cards every year). The good news is it’s easy to make a free (or at least very inexpensive) moving announcement. Print them and mail them or post one on social media — they’re easy to download and customize.
