Try taking an envelope, printing the address as light as you can, and tracing over it with a nice pen so it looks like you hand-wrote it, and didn’t trace it!

@creativeone710:  I saw a tip on pinterest to print in a lovely calligraphy font in a very light grey and then go over the top in a nice black pen – a calligraphy pen would be best if you can use one! I love the tip and will definitely use it 🙂

I did the trace method as well and you couldn’t tell the difference.
