Halfway through stamping my calligraphed envelopes, I notice a typo on the embosser that I ordered from Papyrus. The spelling of my town is wrong.
The wrong letter is in the middle of the word, so at first glance, it’s not noticible since people read words as a whole. I didn’t bother looking too closely because I thought, really, who could screw up the name of this popular town?
What makes me sooooooooooo mad is that I spent soooo much time on these invites. They’re expensive. I spent hours cutting liners, ribbon, stacking them, bundling them, stamping them, putting them together. And then they’re “tarnished” with a typo stamp. And I’m mad at the store clerk for her chicken scratch for writing. And I’m mad at myself for not double checking her order.
UUUUUUUUUUUUUGH. So frustrated! AND, these have to go out ASAP. I can’t wait another week to get a new stamper in. I’m talking to a manager in the AM and having her overnight me a new stamper.

@MissTaken: Oh that sucks! 🙁 It looks like you still have time, but it sucks that you have to start over.

ugh how frusterating Are you going to take it back? How long would it take to make a new one?
If it were me I would send them out with the wrong name and see if anyone notices. (but I have a strange sense of humor and would find it hilarious if no one said anything)

Do you have a photo? I’m guessing the embosser isn’t inked, so maybe no one will really notice? I rarely read the return address in detail on invites I get, though I appreciate the designs.

Yes, thank you Juliepants. That is 100% representative of my face right now.
No, I can’t start over. No time! No time to get more envelopes, re-addressed, etc. No time. I’m just sending them out and hoping that no one notices. It is the blind embossing.This is really important to me right now, because invites are consuming my life. But in 6 months, will I care/remember that there was a typo? Probably not. (deep breath).
I’m hoping I can get a new embosser asap and send out the rest of the envelopes shortly.
Lesson learned: Check and DOUBLE CHECK.
