Make Your Mailings Merry

Holiday cards and labeling ideas
You've got your holiday mailing list. Checked it twice. And with Avery you can create personalized cards, labels and stickers that look festive and nice!
Choose from hundreds of holiday designs in Avery Design & Print. Customize the message on your cards and labels. Then print them yourself or have Avery WePrint™ professionally print them for you.
And since your envelope is one of the first things a person sees when your card arrives in the mail, why not try something new? Here are some ideas on how to create the merriest of mailings with Avery.
Go over the top with arched labels
Greeting cards and arched labels, reindeer design Greeting cards and arched labels, naughty or nice
Rounded on one side and squared off on the other, arched labels give you plenty of room to print your return address on one end and the recipient's address on the other. Be sure to rotate your return address text before printing, so once you fold the label over the top of the envelope, your address will display right-side up.
Create a "printed-on-the-envelope" look with clear labels

Subtle and elegant, clear labels can be applied to any color envelopes to create that "printed-on" look. The label virtually disappears when applied so the envelope color comes right through and your text stands out. Works best on light-colored or white envelopes to keep your addresses on the labels legible.
Add a unique touch with specialty shape labels such as oval, round and square

For years, the rectangle dominated the address labeling scene. But other shapes are making a statement, and they're getting noticed. Oval, round and square labels are eye-catching alternatives for address labels and envelope seals.
Give your greetings a cozy wrap with wraparound labels

Wraparound labels* are making their appearance on envelopes and shipping packages. Like the arched label, one label can work as both the return address and address label. When formatting your labels, designate a smaller area on the label or consider using a smaller font for your return address. To apply, we recommend straddling the label on the edge of the envelope so your return address sits on one side and the recipient's address is on the other before smoothing down.
When it comes to labeling ideas, Avery has you covered. Along with the variety of shapes, Avery also offers an assortment of labels in different textures and materials, such as clear, kraft brown, silver foil and gold foil. From a wide assortment of products to free, customizable designs, Avery gives you more ways to give your holiday mailing a new look.
