Return Address Labels and artwork

Return Address labels are usually a necessity. That is unless you’re the unabomber, or someone like that who really would prefer not to have fingerprints, or any other identifying marks , and would generally like to remain anonymous. If you’re printing out a whole page it can be tedious to create a whole page of labels. So you need to have a little patience and learn how graphics can be inserted into Microsoft Word. I use Microsoft Word 2007, because it seems to be pretty popular. I also use OpenOffice, but it’s not as popular even though it’s popularity is growing.

To get started, you want to download our ML-8100 template here:

.

Then you need to get some graphics. Here are some Family Icons that are pretty popular these days. It’s the Stick Family. We’ve got Mr Stick, Mrs Stick, Brother Stick, Sister Stick, Little Sticks, Dog Stick, Cat Stick and the most delicious of all, Fish Stick! They’re in SVG format, so download Inkscape for free so you can manipulate them and export them to different graphics formats.

You can mix and match which members of the Sticks family represent your family. Lighten the image up and make it like a watermark, or change the colors or whatever. Here’s my family:

The Job Market is brutal out there.

Allegedly it’s getting better according to some. You need every edge you can get to secure a job in this horrible economy. When composing a resume, you’re careful to make it as informative and concise as possible. Choosing really nice stock to print your resume and cover letter helps tremendously. A popular choice for the color of stock used in business correspondences is ivory. Well we have the address labels and return address labels to match.

Set your clocks forward on Sunday. You set the clock forward one hour at 2:00AM on the second Sunday of March. It also happens to be PI Day. That’s March 14, or 3/14. So since PI=3.14159265…yeah. My daughter made a PI Cake for her math class that was pretty cool. I’ll try to get a pic of it.
Here are some PI labels on a return address label, ML-8100.
