Content guidelines

Subheadings should be:

  • Informative and descriptive: they should label the type of content grouped beneath them
  • Concise and scannable:
    • Use simple, clear language that can be read at a glance
    • Keep subheadings to single sentence and avoid using punctuation such as periods, commas, or semicolons
    • Write in sentence case (first word capitalized, the rest lowercase)
  • Shipping address

  • The package will be shipped to this address:
