Nope. The return address is always on the back so no problems so far.

I think Bunnifer is referring to the fact that since the majority of mail is read by a machine and not a human, how would the machine actually know which side is the back and which is the front? I can definitely see there being a problem.

on a related note, what is the way way to attach the labels to the envelope.  Xyron machine, glue dots, double sideded tape?

We got two back where we think that was the problem – it was postmarked on the back, but had an unable to forward label and black crayon scribblings on them!  But, two out of 110 isn’t bad.

 And we used a Xyron.  I made my own template, so I made them 1.5 inches wide, perfect for the $10 Xyron, so it was pretty affordable.

The post office man told me some might be returned, but it never happened, I would say do it!!!  I loved mine!

I think the machine looks for a certain position, and return addresses on the back are generally higher up on the envelope than delivery addresses. But I think the issue with the labels would be that the heights are all the same.

Ooh, and with the glue, I have a Xyron as well, but I have found the BEST paper glue in the world, it’s called Zip Dry Paper Glue. You need just a tiny bit and it will last forever. I did all 140 of my invitations (and there were a lot of pieces to glue together) with less than 1 bottle. At 4.99, it’s way cheaper than the cartridge for the Xyron. It dries beautifully and doesn’t crinkle the paper at all. Highly recommended!

the machines probably look for the side of the envelope the stamp is on, so it shouldn’t be a problem in general…

We did have one of the 80 we sent returned.  The man I spoke with at the post office said it looked like the machine just read the back instead of the front.  We had no other problems.

Since I didn’t want to invest in a Xyron, I purchased 8×11 sheets of label paper and printed straight onto them.  I actually used a brown kraft paper.  I think I used labelsbythesheet.com.

i bought the xyron 500 for the labels… and it’s been so helpful for other projects too…. i’m not a walmart fan, but they’re winning me over slowly but surely…. this xyron was under $20! that’s about $10 – $15 cheaper than going to michael’s or jo-ann’s.  the refills are also just under $10!  i highly reccomend going to walmart to get any xyron supplies… they have smaller and large xyrons in the craft section.

 

and we used the wrap around labels for my shower invites (about 40) and we had zero problems. i custom made my mine, and they fit the envelopes better… check it out on my blog

I didn’t have that problem with the 150 invites we sent out.  That’s annoying, though!

I also used the big sheet labels (actually I used clear ones) and they worked well.  You just cut them with a paper cutter.  I didn’t use Martha’s template, I made my own in Excel (because I put a border around the label to give it an added touch).  I really liked how they turned out!
