There’s nothing quite like receiving a beautifully hand addressed snail mailed card, note or correspondence. There’s also nothing quite like creating that very same mailbox surprise for someone else.

I looooove hand addressing envelopes in all kinds of different styles (suited for the person and the occasion, of course). It’s one of my most favorite things to letter and I can’t believe I haven’t created any video on it yet! That’s all about to change this week and next week with a two part envelope address lettering series! We’ll start this week with sophisticated lettering for more formal notes (for delivery to traditional folks or for classy occasions) and we’ll cover playful and whimsical lettering next week (reserved for the hippest of family, friends and events). All of the materials mentioned + links included below!

  • Really enjoyed this tutorial Teela. I always try to put as much effort into my envelopes as I do my cards because they are so nice to receive when they complement each other. I’ve never tried these techniques before so will enjoy trying them out thanks to you :)!

  • Your hand lettering is sooo beautiful! And you make it look effortless. Thank you for showing how to do it – now I need to practice. A lot.
