Hi everyone! I have a question. If you hosted a contest and you want to mail the reward to a winner would you include your personal address on the envelope??

Thanks!

I wouldn't, but that's me. Can you get a PO box?

You should invest in a PO Box. It doesn't cost much.

I don't like sharing my real name and address with strangers. The P.O. box is a decent idea, but if you don't want to go that route, is there a business address you can use? Is the prize of fairly low value, so you can risk the small odds of it being lost and simply omit the return address altogether?

When I ran contests, I always had a PO Box. I didn't have the entries sent to my house or to my personal email account.

Check out your local UPS Store or Mailboxes Etc and see if they have some kind of service you can get--but talk to a manager, not a clerk. No offense to clerks, mind you.
