@The_Future_KB:  Personally I would stamp the address on both envelopes in the upper left hand corner (make sure the country is on there for any out of country guests)

 

The order I don’t think really matters, you just do it as you want, I don’t forsee anyone missing the smaller items if they’re not on top.

We used an address stamp and I didn’t think anything of it being tacky.

We also put our return stamp on the back flap… and now I’m nervous. I thought NOTHING of it… I hope we don’t get invitations back because of this! We just sent them out so I’m not sure about that.

We put the smaller things on the bottom. I kind of stacked them in order of what I think is important – invitation, rsvp, rsvp envelope, additional information card. I wanted the invitation to be the first thing that was seen!

I would use the stamp….

I created labels………..

Some might say it is tacky but we are talking about an envelope that will eventually be thrown away or messed up by the post office…….

I would put the invitation in the back and the smaller cards up front.  I would do it in an order from smallest to largest that way guests are aware of the smaller cards. 

I put the return address on the back of the envelope…….

@The_Future_KB:  

1. yes absolutely.  as long as it is clear and the post office can read it.

2. no.  i stuffed mine myself.  i did not have an inner envelope.  i had invitiation on bottom, information card next, and rsvp card in the rsvp envelope flap on top.  i ordered mine by size

3.  i put my mom’s return address on the back flap of the invitation envelope.  it’s good to have a return address just in case an address is incorrect.  i put my adress on the RSVP envelope because i wanted to receive them. 

i never heard of someone getting any letter back because of the placement of the return address.  maybe that person forgot to address the envelope or there wasn’t enough postage.

@The_Future_KB:  i did it! so far no mention of it! i also used it for our return address. i put it on the upper left corner, i didnt want any disgruntled USPS workers using it as an excuse not to send them back to us.

You could always use the stamp as an embosser. Use clear embossing ink, little powder and a heat gun. Then it would be super special looking, I would put it in the middle of the back envelope flap.

@The_Future_KB:  I think it is normal to have a return address stamp and then handwritten “to” address.  I would never handwrite my own address on all of those things! haha

We had an address stamp made and used it for the RSVP postcards as well as the return address on our invitations (center of the flap) and had no trouble.

I used a stamp on the back of our invitation envelopes and on the RSVP envelopes. It saved so much time in writing the addresses. (I hand addressed our invitations.)

As for the order in the envelope, I went with what looked the best and also what made the envelope flattest for postage. The invitation was the biggest, so it went in the back.

@The_Future_KB:  I would just print.  I can honestly say unless an invitation has extraordinarily awesome calligraphy, I have never noticed how it was addressed to me (print, cursive, calligraphy, printer label, what-have-you).  So do your most legible option, in my opinion!
