How to prepare your guest list for the calligrapher

Please prepare your alphabetized list using at least a 12pt clear font such as Times New Roman.   Spell out all cities, states, street, roads, avenues, boulevards, lanes, courts.   Your list should have complete information, including:

Salutation: Mr/Ms/Mrs/Miss/Dr./Rabbi/Reverend (Academic titles such as Professor are not generally used in formal social settings).  For Military, Justices/Judges and other titles, refer to an etiquette book such as Crane's Blue Book. Titles such as "Dr." are listed first, regardless of gender.
Proper first names:
Abbreviations/nicknames are not considered appropriate for formal affairs

      Mr. and Mrs. Robert Anderson, not Mr. & Mrs. Bob Anderson
      Street Address
      Apartment or Unit Number
      City and State (no abbreviations)
      Country
(if needed)
      Country/Postal or Zip code

Alphabetized lists should be prepared "Flush Left" in label format, 2 columns:


Outer
Mr. and Mrs. John Roberts
21 Pine Ridge Road
Woodbridge, Connecticut
06525

Inner
Mr. and Mrs. Roberts
Emma and Max

(names of children)

Numerals are usually used for street addresses; numbers 1-20 can be written out. Numbered streets can appear either way. (Crane's Blue Book)

Some street addresses are normally abbreviated such as streets in Washington DC and areas of Florida (Coast Avenue SW; Connecticut Avenue NW)

 
Married couples but wife retained her last name use 'and':

     Mr. Charles Dumas and Ms. Carol Price

If unmarried and residing at same address, "and" is not used.
 
        Mr. Joseph Palmer
        Ms. Susan Corso

The same is true for inner envelopes and escort cards.

If you are not sure of the format for a foreign address or a zip code, check online resources such as Mapquest, USPS.com or http://www.freesearching.com/zip_codes_intl.htm
