I created a moving announcement and wanted to share the concept with you. I can't share the actual announcement because it has WAY too much personal info on it. I basically created a "flyer" for a Bed & Breakfast with our name and info on it. I printed them on 8 1/2 x 11 glossy paper and had them tri-folded then mailed them out like they were a flyer for a bed and breakfast. It had a picture of our new home, some info on our town then these three pictures and captions in the middle section:
Hot Breakfast Served Daily
Complimentary Wake Up Calls
I then listed that there are "Winter Discounts Available" since we moved to the cold and everyone has said they'll come visit, but only in the summer. I included a map of the city with a star on our town and then our new contact information.
They were so quick and easy compared to the ones I sent last time I moved. I created them on the computer. Kinkos printed and folded them and then I mailed them out. I even found green envelopes with a matching shaped address area that matched after I'd had them printed.
I've gotten many compliments on them and I'm glad I sent them out.
