Hi everyone 🙂
I’m trying to print addresses on our save-the-date envelopes. I’m trying to avoid using labels. We already have a ton of the blank envelopes that we got for cheap…has anyone had experience taking their envelopes somewhere to get printed? We’ve heard from Kinkos that you have to use their envelopes, and I’m guessing that will be expensive. Please help!!

@rudytheboxer: Most places will make you buy thier envelopes of course— I think that would be something you just have to call around for. If you have a decent printer and know how to print envelopes with it, it’s not difficult and they turn out lovely. We did it- BUT we had a bit of a snafu (it’s not the printers fault– BOTH of our computers died when I was in between printing shifts. We replaced our computers with a Mac, and the template was a little different. After wasting a lot of envelopes after the new computer, I ended up using clear labels- which , contrary to what you might think, looked great)

@rudytheboxer: We didn’t take ours anywhere we just did it on our home printer. We used an excel document and did a mail merge and let them go. Worked wonderfully once we figured out how big out feeder slot had to be!

Thank you! I only have an old HP Deskjet printer, so it might not be the best printer for the job…and I’m perpetually out of ink 🙂 I’m thinking about getting the ink and trying on some envelopes (I should have plenty to mess with). Maybe if that doesn’t work I will go for the clear labels. I’ve already set up the mail merge so if it works, I’ll be sooo happy!

We are doing postcards and printing on both sides. Using the xerox at work once it is fixed :S
