I don’t actually know – but I was thinking that I would use a very flourishy font for the names and a plainer font for the address (so it would be more legible).  I saw this on the web – somewhere and it looked great – the names were larger and elaborate but the address was legible and the combo worked.

Since I’m doing printed labels I thought it would make the outer envelope look a little classier.   But I haven’t run it by the post office.  I planning on mailing invitations to my mom and FMIL first to see how they travel, etc.  so I hope it will get ironed out there.

We used PassionsConflictROB which is pretty flourishy but I had no problems with the post office.

The post office uses machines that read the information and the machines  are made to recognize all types of chicken scratch and horrible handwriting that people put on envelopes so my guess is pretty script will be easy to read.  THe most important part is the zip code…that’s like 90% of getting your mail to someone and those are numbers, and therefore easy to read in any script.   As long as those are clear you should be fine.
