Zap That ZIP Code!!

I know, it can be hard to resist including the zip code of your venue’s address on your son or daughter’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah invitation. After all, we want to give our guests all the information they need so they can arrive to our celebrations on time and stress-free. But, the zip code is not to be included with the Bar or Bat Mitzvah invitation wording. It simply isn't proper etiquette since the ZIP code is for the use of the Postal Service only.

If your event location is tough to find and the zip code might assist your guests when looking for directions, then you may want to consider adding a small map or direction card.

When adding the city and state to your Bar or Bat Mitzvah invitation wording, remember to avoid using the state’s abbreviation and write it out. The same rule applies to the printed return address on the back flap of your envelope and your guests’ address on the front. As long as spacing allows, the state should not be abbreviated. You will want to follow the same rule for words such as Street, Drive, etc. Those words should be completely written out and not abbreviated.

Last, but not least, remember that when you are addressing your envelopes, the city, state and zip code are to all go on the same line. This will help the post office with the delivery of your invitations.
