SMS Text Template

Hi, has anyone found a good app, or know of a way to quickly add a text template to an SMS and/or E-mail message?  I often have to give people directions to my business and it would be easy if I could just "Insert Text Template" instead of having to type it out every time. 


Any suggestions?
