The US post office prefers things to be addressed from Most Specific to Least Specific, except the zip code always comes last. So

  • Name, 
  • Apt/Suite #, 
  • Street Address, 
  • City, 
  • State, 
  • Zip.
 If you want to list a Box # along with your street address, the address you want them to deliver to goes lower in the food chain
  • Name
  • Apt.
  • Street
  • PO Box
  • City
  • State
  • Zip
Because obviously if there's a PO box listed, that's where you want the mail to go, but they read addys from the bottom up, so if there's a mailable address before the PO box, they won't see the PO Box.

But anyway, the Suite in Manbird's example comes before the street address in a mail address. If they don't want mail, they can do it however they like.

And anyway also however, I'd use a bullet after the period:

Suite 123, 456 Wide Blvd. • Hollywood, Fl 92929

Attention grammar cops!
this one should be simple:


The address will all be one line on a business card 
which one is most correctest:

2088 Walsh Blvd. Suite C2, Santa Clara, CA  95050 or
2088 Walsh Blvd., Suite C2, Santa Clara, CA  95050

I'm guessing it's #B. (The second one.)

I would spell out Boulevard if at all possible, because the period comma thing is ugly. But the Suite comes before the street. 

 
But not in Comic Sans.
