Forwarding Address Requested

Custom Return Address Rubber Stamp w/Vintage Letterpress Feel - 0004
Hopefully, you've had some success finding addresses for the people you would like to write to this month for Service Boot Camp.  If you are not quite sure about the address you are using, you can use this trick to help you in your search.  Mail the letter to the address that you have, but write "forwarding address requested" or "address correction requested" on the envelope.  This alerts the post office to the fact that you would like to receive the updated address for this person.  If the letter can be forwarded to the recipient, you will also receive notification of the new address.  If the letter is returned to you, you will receive a sticker on your letter noting the forwarding address, so you can try again.  Basic, right? I just thought it should be said!  The Postal Service is so old school.  I love it!

  1. Hi Jocelyn
    I like them all what a great idea. and they are cute too instead of the same olsd sticker returned address.
    My favorite is the Fancy Western style font like the Presley one

    I plan on writing 4 letters to day, one for a sick friend, one for a friend going through a hard time, one for my Mum, and one for a friend who I have been meaning to thank for a long time

    I also plan on putting little notes in the pockets of the dresses I am making , but that won"t be today.
