PROVIDING A PROPER GUEST LIST

If you have purchased full addressing services or have purchased a package which includes full or partial addressing, please be advised that a digital address database is required. This address list can be a simple Word or Google Doc or an Excel or Google Sheet. Clients are responsible for collecting and inputting addresses. Paper Made Lovely shall not be held responsible for incorrect addresses, typos, or omitted addresses.

 

If you have purchased addressing service, send your guest list in spreadsheet or text document format to your designer via email. Be sure your list conforms to the following formatting guidelines prior to sending to ensure timely production. Address lists not formatted as shown will require additional labor charges and can delay production by up to 10 business days.

A simple list is best. You are most likely using an online tool for your guest list so start there and export your list to a CSV file. 

 

Open that file in Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, or Numbers.

There's probably ALOT of info on there that is not necessary for addressing your envelopes so ago ahead and delete those columns.  The main items to keep are Names, Street Address, City, State, Zip.

Depending on your online tool, you may have entered each guest separately or by household.  You will want one address for each household.
