Ok bees I know this topic has been brought up plenty of times and everyone is probably tired of it. But I am getting ready to send out our save the dates and I am completely torn on whether or not I should handwrite everyone’s address or if printing them in a pretty font is ok.
I am going to print our address in a nice script font on clear lables for the back of the flap since I don’t have enough time to order the stamp I wanted. Is it really that big of a deal if we don’t handwrite our guests addresses? These are just the save the dates and not our invitations, I just hate my handwriting and want everyone to get something pretty from us.
Is anyone completely against receiving a printed envelope for someones save the date?

@Aadams4: Print those babies. Hell, I printed out labels for our wedding invites. To me, it was a time saver and with 200 invites to send out, no way was I hand writing/paying someone to do calligraphy. The last 3 STD’s/invites I have gotten have been addressed with labels.

@mmr66: Did either of you try printing the return address on the back flap or did you just print it on the front? I printed labels last night for the return address but they are just too small to me.

@Aadams4: I got an awesome stamp from Etsy and hand stamped the return address.

Most of the invitations and Save-The-Date Cards I’ve received over the last two years have had printed labels on them. I much prefer the look of printed envelopes, so that’s what I went with. I think if you pick a pretty font (I chose Coneria Script), I think it looks awesome!!
And, just because I’m OBSESSED with how they turned out, here’s ours (with last name and house number removed, so it’s actually a centred address). I had our return address printed on the back flap.

@Aadams4: I originally was going to print 80 envelopes for my Save the Dates, but I decided to make labels using pretty fonts instead. The design of the labels took the most time (2 hours), but that’s because I’m a font snob. However, the labeling the envelopes took a little less than 1 hour (includes stuffing, address labels, return address labels, and cute seal sticker). I think they came out really cute.
Here is one of my labels:
And the round seal sticker I made, just because I’m in love with it:
