I’m trying to decide between paper/snail mail moving announcements or the more eco/modern version, email. Either way, these above are a few of my faves. I think I like the first and last the best. They’re all from etsy.

    All of the cards are nice, would be tough to pick. Is cool that you are thinking about using ones from Esty from an independent artist.

    It would probably depend on who you are notifying as to whether to use snail mail or electronic card. Snail mail would be more conform to conventional etiquette – people who are more formal,less techie or keep scrapbooks that they might want to put the card inot would appreciate this option.

    However, techies and “green” recipients might be either think it is too old-fashioned and or environmentally irresponsible and would expect to be notified electrontically.

    I like the first two the best. Also, I’m a huge fan of snail mail. Email seems so impersonal. I love getting the mail and seeing a handwritten letter/note addressed to me. It’s so much fun!

    I like the second one, but I think is more eco, fast, and cheaper to send a mail!

    I love this idea – those cards are so cute. When I read the post, I considered to myself as well whether it wouldn’t be better to just update people electronically, but then I thought of people like my mother, who doesn’t have the internet, and basically asks for my address every time she calls. A little card for her to put on the fridge and look pretty would be so much handier!

    Go with e-mail. Snail mail is only for those special few who will visit you bearing wine.

    I love the first one…very creative.

    Wanted to tell you I went down to Melrose today & stopped by my fav store, Crossroads Trading Co. I got a black Armani jacket for $12.00…CRAZY!

    I’m sure you’re familiar with the place, but if not…swing by there.

    If you cannot decide, use both snail mail and email! I think they are all very beautiful :)

    The first two are my favourites! It is a nice gesture, to send cards instead of emails/text messages. I should do it more often, too…

    I really like the second ones, but I’m partial to the “green” way to send through e-mail. Congrats on your new home, have fun decorating!

    You could still utilize the same concept through an email template design. Not as fun as getting wrapped goodness in the mail, of course. LOVING the second one.

    I like all of these!! We moved over six months ago, and these are so cute I’m tempted to get some and send them late!

    I think my favorite it the little house with the tree and bluebird over it.

    There’s something awesome about paper announcements, and those ones are fantastic.

    But… if you email your new address, people can search their email… versus searching their recycling bins.
