I would write it in instead of hoping the guest does it. Can you feed it through the printer again and just add Australia to it?

the handful of overseas guests will handwrite australia on the return envelope and figure out postage if they need to.

i live in the states, we have one couple we are inviting from australia.

i used return envelopes for the them and put the postage of 46 cents on the envelope like i did every other invite.  however, i took theirs to the post office to mail because i did not know the postage.  for them to mail it back, they can add more postage if needed and write USA if needed.

don’t worry about it.

What about printing new labels and sticking them on top of the ones going out of the country??

Could you find a rubber stamp that says “Australia” in a beautiful (but clearly readable) font and stamp it at the bottom of the already printed address?

I think @Brielle has a brilliant idea!

I think that you are fine to handwrite or to put an additional label on them.   Most people won’t notice or won’t care.   And your guests will be happy to be invited.   You are allowed to be imperfect!

For the OP and for @ajillity81:  Your overseas guests will have to add their own postage anyways despite you already putting your US 46 cent stamp on them.   Each country’s post office will only accept their own stamps.

@Brielle:  oOOO, that would look cool! In a slightly different font, it would add some visual interest.

@Nic01:  I am going to a wedding is Aus next year, I know exactly where to post the RSVP – I mean we are buying the tickets yeah? If most of your guests are local I wouldn’t even worry about it. The overseas ones will write Aus at the bottom and assume it’s been printed that way because most guests are local.

 

No worries!

@Nic01:  Haha I know what you mean about lining it up. I had problems with our RSVP envelopes too! Hand writing it on us definitely okay. I would rather have that then have RSVPs not get back to me!

I’d just write in the country if I were you. We ordered an address stamp for our return address but it doesn’t have the country on it.  We only sent one invitation abroad so I just wrote it in.
