Free Moving Announcements
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.
How to make free moving announcements
Step 1: Download
Start by choosing a moving announcement from this list. Download it to your computer or phone.
Step 2: Customize
Add custom text like your address or a message to the image using photo editing apps or software. Some of our favorites are free (unless you pay for upgrades): Phonto (for both Apple and Google Play), Over (Apple), InstaQuote (Apple and Google Play) and PicMonkey online.
Upload the photo to the editing software and then add your text. In our example (using Phonto), we’ve added “We’re Moving!” and a new address.
Make sure to save the edited version so you can share it.
Step 3: Print or Share
When you’re ready to share the news of the upcoming move, you have options. You can share the photo online or print out the images to mail them. Sharing is simple — just upload the file to your favorite social media site for the big news. Or you can email the moving announcements to your network.
To print, you can either upload the image to a photo printing site or send it to an office supply store for printing. The photo printing service will produce a glossy image, while the office supply store can print on paper or cardstock. We chose to print on cardstock for a matte look. Of course, printing isn’t free, but you can get cheap moving announcements by utilizing these free designs and affordable printing options.
You can place the prints in envelopes and mail them to family and friends.
