This happened to me with my save the dates! I went to the post office to hand cancel, and they were completely okay with it. So I stood there and hand canceled all of my save the dates.. took a while! Then a week later one was returned, so I got to see it myself. It was double canceled! Once by hand, and then by machine!!! I was so mad!! I still don’t know why.

I’m not 100% sure, but when I asked at my post office (Canada Post, too) if we could hand cancel them they said yes, but they couldn’t guarantee that they wouldn’t go through other machines elsewhere.

Im not sure how canada post works but I hand cancelled my invitations and when they were delivered, the only marks that were on them were the ones I made with the cancelling stamp. So it does look like they were run through a machine after you cancelled them, but that’s based on how they would like having gone through USPS.
