I’ve spent WAY too long & spent too much time on our invitations. The errors appear AFTER they have been printed of course.
I have some o/s guests. I have RSVP envelopes with our names & address pre-printed for ease. Except our address doesn’t have the country!
Now for most of the guests this is fine as it will be mailed domestically but if an o/s sends it, i have no idea whether it will get to me.
So, do I handwrite ‘Australia’ on the bottom (& have ppl laugh at the diy fail bride) or leave it & hope/assume guests will do it but completely come to terms that it may never get here…
What would you do?

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?

@MrsBeck: I’m laughing as i type. there is no way i can feed them through the printer – that was a task in itself. To hope that i could align it up perfectly is way beyond my diy-ing-ness.
Would hand written be ok..??

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.

@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!

@Brielle: that would have been a brilliant idea should i had more time! It took 3 weeks for my custom stamp to get to me!

@MrsBeck: glad i’m not the only one – i feel like this is the most diy i have ever done & ever plan to do!!

@LLemonDifficult: labels was an original idea except that our envelopes are ‘natural’ looking – kind of like the enviromentally friendly paper & a white label would not look so good….

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.
