Wording Samples: Change Of Address Cards

When you and your family move into a new home or apartment, it is always a nice gesture to send your friends and relatives a change of address note with your new contact information.

When you and your family move to a new home or a new apartment, your closest friends and family members will probably be right there alongside you helping you pack and haul furniture across town. You have probably contacted your credit card companies, electric company, phone company, bank and cell phone company to alert them of your new address so bills can be forwarded to the correct place. Since you will have a new home address, it is a great gesture to send out change of address cards to family members and friends so they can keep in contact with you. If you plan on making your own change of address cards to send out, here are some wording samples and templates to get you started.

The Johnson Family is moving on up"¦

to the north side of San Antonio!

Starting December 1st

our new address will be

716 Flatonia Drive

San Antonio, Texas 78228

New Home Phone: 210.555.1212

As you noticed in the above example, the wording includes a date when the new address will be in effect. It is a good idea to include a date, especially if you are sending out change of address cards before the actual move-in date. Also, if your home phone number will be changing (as it most often does), be sure to note your new number, as well. If your phone number is remaining the same, you can also state that on the invitation.

With the advent of technology and the Internet, many families are starting to create their own sites where they can keep an online journal and photographs of the family and home. If you want friends and family members to have access to a site you have developed, this is a great time to give them the website address.

Many families need to find temporary housing when they are having a home built. Some move into apartments for a few months while others move in with family members or friends. You can send out a change of address card for your temporary move, so you can be easily contacted, that also shows what your new permanent address will be once the final move is complete.
