Like many people here, I’m in love with the font Burgues Script. I’m planning on using it to address my invitations. I think it looks fine, but I showed a couple to my fiancé and he finds the font difficult to read. I really want to use it, but I also don’t want them to get lost in the mail because the post office can’t read them. I’m going to try sending one to myself and see if it gets back to me, but I’m kind of nervous. Does anyone else have any experience with this font or any similiar ones?

One option is that you can put people’s names in Burgues Script and maybe pick a coordinating serif/sans serif font for the actual address itself? I think Mrs. Penguin did something similar for some invites here if you scroll down a bit the see the whole invitation box: http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/gocco-bird-themed-boxed-invitations
That way you can use the beautiful font but also be readable as well. Though I believe that Mrs. Ribbons used Burgues Script on her envelopes and I’m assuming they were fine! 🙂 http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/03/23/press-the-button-the-highs-and-lows-of-square-envelopes/
Hope this helps! Sorry if I made it more confusing!

I’ve been a graphic designer for over 10 yrs at a large corporation, and I what ShuShu1208 suggested is exactly what you should do. I do mass-mailers all of the time for work and I’d never do a script for the address.

Thanks so much for the examples! It makes me feel better to see that someone used it on their envelopes. Hopefully the one that I sent to myself will get back to me and then I’ll have a better idea.
