This is a great post!  I know the USPS gets a lot of grief, but, man, do they sort a LOT of mail.  They really do an amazing job. 

I always put both the address AND the return address inside of the box, and if I wrap the box in paper (with very very sealed edges, seriously, EVERY seam is covered) to hide old markings I still scribble the address on the box SOMEWHERE.  With two or three sets of addresses, I figure it has a good shot of getting there.  Smiley

Also, yes, big block printing on the address is your friend!
