So I ordered a sample envelope just to make sure that the ink would print okay and it worked great.
The issue is that when we run the silver metallic envelope through the printer, it leaves an indent or imprint of the flap in the back. So now the front of the envelope has two raised side impressions of the back of the envelope that show through on the front.
Has anyone else had this happen?
Is there a way to fix it?

Can you run it through with the flap open? You may have to flip the printing to do so depending on which way the envelope goes through the printer…
I printed my envelopes and had no problems.

Thanks for replying!
The thing is that it is not the flap that is causing the indent! It’s the sides and how they fold over on the back that is showing through on the front.
That’s is what is so strange about it —

Could you print the envelope with some kind of thick paper inside? Maybe 2 or 3 layers of some kind of paper or cardstock? That may help!

@mindybelcher: to be honest, if simple printing puts impressions in the surface, then once it goes through the mail it’s probably going to look pretty bad. unless you are planning on hand-delivering these, you might want to look at other envelopes.

Maybe printing with something inside is the answer!
The envelope is the metallic Stardream from EnvelopeMall which it seems that a lot of brides do use, so I thought it would be pretty durable.

Are you using an inkjet or laser printer? I know on my laser there are settings for paper type. Try using envelope, or better yet if it has it, thick envelope. The printer may be squeezing your paper to hard.
