I’ve seen lovely envelopes with large calligraphy type fonts (http://img1.etsystatic.com/000/0/6391604/il_fullxfull.319162931.jpg?ref=l2 or http://img4-3.realsimple.timeinc.net/images/holidays-entertaining/weddings/0113/wedding-envelopes-157_gal.jpg ) Any bees out there have similar? Were you able to resend it via USPS? Please help before I give the go ahead to my printer!!

MrsBPhD: All of my outer envelopes were hand calligraphed in a manner that looks almost identical to that. I had no problems at all mailing them.

MrsBPhD: This is all it says on the USPS website:
How To Address An Envelope<br />
Placement<br />The address, return address, and postage should all be on the same side of the envelope. (If it’s improperly addressed, it might get returned to you.)
Return Address<br />Print or type your address in the upper-left corner on the front of the envelope.
Delivery Address<br />Print or type clearly the delivery address parallel to the longest side of the envelope.
I would go ask your local postmaster,

Mine looked just like that and I had no trouble! FWIW, I did not put any return address on them at all, as I’ve heard that putting the return address in a weird place (we didn’t have space on the front really) can confuse things. We only had 10 invites, lol, so I wasn’t too worried about the return address thing, but it might be a problem if you have a larger wedding.

I would say go with the first option.. nice and big so it’s easily legible, the second one might be a little hard to read, it’s so small.
