    How To Address an Envelope

    • Writing the recipient’s address. The recipient’s address is written in the middle of the envelope.
    • Writing the sender’s address. The sender’s address, also called the return address, is where the letter should be sent if it can’t be delivered to the recipient.
    • Adding the stamp.

    Does it matter what corner you put a stamp on?

    Do you have to put your name on return address?

    What happens if you send a letter without return address?
