Ask The Desk: Moving Announcements

Ask The Desk Header

My good friend Geoff asked me to recommend some “non-cutesy” moving announcements.


My first advice is to start on Etsy. I searched for “moving announcements” and my first few items did not feel cutesy but simple, tasteful and cool.  Clockwise from top left,  library card announcements, the simple, letterpressed cards, the vintage Hawaiiana and the handlettered cards all felt cool enough for a gent.



Tiny Prints had a nice collection of appropriately masculine and urban moving announcements. Since they are digitally printed, its possible to order small quantities and prices start around $1 per card.

Paper Pastries Address Stamp

And, of course, he’ll need a new return address stamp so the first place I thought of was my pal Margaret at Paper Pastries. I think the arrow design would be a good option for Geoff but I bet Margaret would not be averse to creating a more masculine design for the urban gent. Her prices start at $65 for an original design.

I hope these options get him started. If you have any other ideas for good moving announcements, please leave a note in the comments.

  1. Thank you! You found some great ones (I really like the simple, letterpress cards and the chalkboard one from tiny print.

    I feel a little silly for not being able to remember the term “moving announcement” when I was searching; all I could think of was “change of address”

    I find it very strange that it is so hard to find cards that don’t say “we.” No one else moved — just me.

      1. I went ahead and ordered the chalkboard “new address” cards from tinyprints. i’ll let you know what i think once they arrive
