OK this is a DUMB question and I’m pretty sure I know the answer BUT here it goes:
Can I send my invitation in the mail with a flat ribbon around it? I really didn’t want to do an inner and outer envelope but LOVE the look of the ribbon around the invitation and sealed with wax– would this fly with the post office?? It would be laying flat without a bow kinda like this:
This looks nothing really like what I’d be doing but you get the idea of it laying flat across the envelope. I even bought that spray adhesive so it wouldn’t get caught in anything. Thoughts?

Nope, sorry, nothing can be on the outside of the envelope that will get caught up in the machines. The USPS is pretty strict on how things are shipped. Now girls are even having issues to mail an invite with a cute little bow inside to hold everything together because of the bump in the envelope—they have to pay a lot since it’s now consider a “package” with the bump. It’s so cute though!

I don’t think so. The machines they send the letters through would get all caught up and not work. They have to be able to print stuff on your envelopes and the ribbon would be in the way. I voted wrong with maybe becuase I forgot about all that stuff!

Only if you want either your invitations to get lost in the mail or for them all to be returned.

I figured as much but thought I’d ask… a co-worked had a nice idea of doing a vellum envelope so that guests could see it through the envelope
