    Hello all. I have a few questions about addressing my envelopes.

    What is the best way to address a family on the mailing envelope- especially since I will not having an inner envelope for this mailing. Is it appropriate to print "John Smith and Family" or "John & Pocahontas Smith and Family" ?

    Also, when using my own printer on a #10 envelope are there any regulations from the USPS I need to be aware of?

    Thank you so much!

      i think i did mr. and mrs. john smith and family or mr. and mrs. john smith, and on the next line wrote child and child smith. i didn't really care if they were proper tho....i don't think there are any usps regulations for #10 envelopes.

      i did the same as lauren for addressing them. there are no special USPS regulations for #10 envelopes unless they have the string and wheel closure. if theres a flap and they just seal its fine. but with the string and wheel closure, its an additional 17 cents postage.

        I adressed mine the same way as Maura & Lauren! Good luck to you! You'll feel really good when you get them out:)

          I would say that if you're planning to use first names at all, use both. I would be really upset to receive something addressed to me as Mr. & Mrs. John Smith. It is 2008 afterall. Sorry, but just to give a perspective.

          I have always addressed situations like those as "The Smith Family". If the spouses don't share a last name though (or are common-law) I would write both names, without Mr/Mrs. IE John Smith and Jane Jones & family (to save space)
