moving cards

I always love moving announcements that are specific to the locale.  When my husband and I moved from New York to Las Vegas, I designed a moving card that played up the "Fabulous Las Vegas" sign.  My friends in New York especially loved our new west coast address (could it get any worse than "Wagonwheel Ranch Way"?).

 

When Kristin moved from New York to Texas, she designed a very cute moving card, complete with her newly-adopted Texan star.

 

When my sister-in-law moved to Illinois, far away from family and friends, she asked me to design a moving card that showcased her new home.  I drew the facade of her house from a snapshot she emailed to me.  Have you come across any clever moving cards?

I love these! Thanks for the inspiration. We just moved this summer from one apt to another in San Francisco, so I made some vintage SF-themed postcards to announce our move. To make it really personalized, I used my handwriting as a font. http://dananddianahulme.blogspot.com/2009/07/moving-announcements.html

Thanks for the wonderful ideas on your new blog! I love it. :) Keep up all the inspiration!

These are beautiful! I love the Las Vegas one especially. Clever cards take the sting out of the whole moving progress, somewhat. :)

I grew up in Las Vegas and can attest that they corner the market on the WORST street names ever.

I really love the Illinois one. Its a super creative take on a basic idea. Your blog is probably my favorite blog to date!

I just designed ours, but haven't put them on the web yet because I want people to receive them first. They play on the "new nest" theme.

Love the "we've moved" cards! We have moved several times, and I always send postcards out so people can update our address in their records. I also LOVE the font used for the "we've moved" on the Texas cards. Do you mind sharing the name of the font?

I just moved to Las Vegas from Oregon. Do you sell the vegas one or could you tell me where I could get the graphic? LOVE IT!!!
