We only have outer envelopes for our invitations. Now that the invitations are in, the envelopes feel a little thin and I’m feeling a little worries about not having and outer and inner to protect the invite in the mail. Would adding a liner give some protection? Overall, what’s the deal with liners? Pros? Cons? Can I purchase them and adhere them to my envelopes? I’m not a DIYer, so something pre-made would be ideal. Thanks!

Pros: they look awesome
Cons: they can be a pain in the butt
Where did you buy your envelopes? If they’re Paper-Source, I know they sell pre-cut liners. All you need is an afternoon and a glue roller/stick/whatevs.

I agree with scissors – they look pretty amazing, and they’ll probably add a little thickness to your envelope. They are a pain, though! It’s a relatively simple project, however, and I think it ends up with some awesome results!

We bought them from a locally-owned letterpress print shop. I’ll look up Paper-source. thx

The pros – they look great, and can add another dimension to your suite, and they add some weight. They also aren’t necessarily all that time consuming. My FI cut them out and I pasted them in and we got them done in an afternoon. Buying the pre-cut ones would save you the time of cutting them out.
The cons – uhm. I actually didn’t have any cons, since I didn’t have to do any of the cutting 🙂

Pros – they look pretty and custom.
Cons – they can be a bit finicky to put in I didn’t find them that bad), and if you’re super close to going up in postage they might put you over the edge. I could have saved myself .22 cents per invite in postage if I’d ditched the liners, which could add up if you have a lot of guests.
Also, maybe nobody will notice, and that work will be for nothing. Also, if people use a letter opener to open, or otherwise just rip open the top of envelopes, they really won’t notice they’re there.
