So I feel kinda silly asking this, but I’m really not sure how to seal all my invite envelopes. I dont want to use glue or the liquid letter sealer from usps because i feel like that will make it harder to open. When I have received letters that used glue I actually had to rip the envelope apart to open it. What did you use to seal your invite envelopes?

My invitation kits came with little seals like posted in previous comment. When I took one to the post office to get it weighed they said that I needed to tape the envelope shut because the seal was not enough. The envelopes did not have a seal built into it to just lick and seal so I bought the clearest possible tape I could and I hated it! But at the point the other seals were already on I couldn’t lift them up without ripping to put double sided tape.

I wet a paper towel and just used that. It wet the glue without me having to lick 354357354 envelopes.
(Plus- a part of me always gets freaked at licking envelopes ever since that one Seinfeld episode…)

I used my TONGUE! (lol)
We’re only have 50 guests, so I had maybe 30 to lick. Even if I had a bunch, I probably still would have licked them because it didn’t occur to me to do anything else.
Licking envelopes skeeves me out but I did it anyway. The sacrifices we make…
ETA: For those who have trouble opening envelopes (like me), get a letter opener. I use mine everyday and I love it.

I never even considered that there was another option than licking them…

I ALWAYS use a sponge because I hate the taste of envelopes. Just wet a small sponge and ta da!

I didn’t vote since I cut up a brand new sponge and wet it and squeezed out excess water and it worked great. Ended up like small triangles.

If you don’t want to use glue/sealer, but don’t want to lick all the envelopes, you can use a little bowl of water & your finger to wet the adhesive on the flaps, or they sell little bottles with sponges on the end that you fill with water for this specific purpose (I think they have them at most office supply stores).

ok thanks everyone! I may end up using glue dots cos I’m scared to use too much water and make the envelope ripple.. I bouth this mini glue dot roller and just started using it today for my DIY liners and its pretty great!

I used a wet paper tower. I hate licking envelopes, they taste super gross to me. Not only that I feel weird about sending people a bit of my DNA. I know, I’m weird. lol

I always use a glue runner thing – my tongue seriously breaks out when I lick envelopes 🙂
The first time my groom ever saw me use one he was dumbfounded!
You don’t need to run the whole length of the envelope, I usually do the ends and a little spot in the middle.
