I have so many people ask me about this I just had to write a post about it. “Dear Laura, what is the difference between centering and staggering? All your envelopes look like they are centered, can I see an example of staggered layouts, please?” Sure you can! Here it is. The top envelope is centered (with an optional dropped zip code) the bottom envelope is staggered. As you can see, each line is slightly more indented than the line above it. It has a cute effect, especially when the zip code is dropped down. So, why does centering cost more then? It’s simple, because it takes longer to write your envelopes if I have to think about where to start writing each line so they will come out centered. So, either way, your envelopes will look great! Both styles above are Bickham Swash Caps.
