Addressing Accuracy Tips – Part Two

December 05/2014
0 Comments

In continuation of our previous “Addressing Accuracy Tips” blog post, here are some addressing facts and standards that your direct mail campaigns should always be in agreement with:

• Hyphens have these specific purposes…

1. Linking a unit number and a civic number:
80-100 DUNDAS ST W
= 100 DUNDAS ST WEST SUITE 80

2. To connect and display an official municipality name in Quebec:
SAINTE-MARTHE-SUR-LE-LAC

• Avoid dangling unit numbers by identifying them…

Incorrect: 50 BLOOR ST 5

Correct: 50 CHARLES ST UNIT 5
Correct: 5-50 CHARLES ST

• Ensure your punctuation is valid…

Incorrect: SAINT JOHN’S NB
Incorrect: ST. JOHN NB

Correct: SAINT JOHN NB

Incorrect: ST. CATHARINES ON
Incorrect: ST CATHERINE’S ON

Correct: ST CATHARINES ON

• Alberta’s number street names typically do not end in “-st”, “-rd”, “-nd”, or “-th”…

Incorrect: 32nd AVE

Correct: 32 AVE
