    vip0802:  We had dark blue envelopes and I handwrote the addresses with a white ink pen (which I didn’t even know existed until I checked out a really cool stationery shop) The only problem was that I didn’t leave enough drying time before stacking them so there was slight smudging.

    If you do this it should be fine and I think it look so much nicer than typed labels. We didn’t have rsvp cards though so I can’t help on that part.

    While I really like the look of white ink on dark envelopes, I don’t have the neatest handwriting (or that much patience to be honest). I ended up creating a wrap-around label that matched the motif on our invites. I think they turned out pretty well.

    Honestly, I don’t think you can go wrong with whatever option you choose.

    vip0802:  I had black envelopes for our stds and our invites. For both of them I wrote the addresses with a gold gel pen. It worked beautifully!

    You might be finished already, but we used a silver pen and it worked great (we embossed our return address).  Like a PP said, just give them time to dry without touching the ink and without stacking them on top of each other to smudge.
