It's that time of year again where we pass out school and sports photos. If your family is like ours, we have quite a few pictures to mail, and lots to hand out. A few years ago I started doing this trick, and I'll never go back to hand writing on the backs of photos again! Use small return address labels (like Avery 5267), print your child's name, age, and school year on each one, and put on the back of school pictures. This has lots of benefits:
- It's quick! Each year, you can just edit the label document with the new information
- It's neat! No smudges, illegible handwriting, or mistakes
- It's safe! No ballpoint pen pushing through to the front of the photo, no permanent marker bleeding through
- It's easy!
