Bring your Save the Dates in to the post office in person and tell them you want your STDs hand-cancelled and do not want them to be machine sorted. They will go through them and also let you know if there might be any concerns in making sure they get to their destination (ie some people use script/calligraphy/stamping techniques difficult to read). And this way you know exactly how much postage will be necessary and won’t have to worry about anything coming back. When we took our invitations in to have them hand-cancelled, we found out we needed an additional .20 stamp on each envelope. Sheesh.

Our STD and invites both had dry embossing on them. They were all sorted by machine and we didn’t have any problems with them.

I hope it comes back to you in a condition you’re happy with 🙂 I went to my parents’ house to see how theirs looked and had my MOH send me a photo of hers. LOL. Honestly, the only thing that made me upset was how dirty the envelopes got! The embossing was just fine.
