I ordered a custom rubber stamp off etsy of our address for the back flap of our invitations and it worked great. We just used ink though- no embossing.

If you use colored ink with clear embossing powder, it will come out clearer than vice versa.

Also… a neat trick I figured out this past weekend while making favor tags… the paper I am using is highly finished (metallic sheen) and does not absorb ink very well at all, especially since my printer is an ink jet (smudges).  So what I did was after I ran the tags through my printer, I threw clear ultra fine embossing powder on the whole sheet and heated it.  The effect was amazing, exactly like embossing but without the hassle of stamping each individual tag (I printed 24 per sheet of paper)… so that might be an option for you depending on what type of paper your envelopes are made of and if you have an ink jet printer.  Good luck!

Hi!  I did that same exact thing – I ordered a custom rubber stamp and embossed our return address for the save-the-date, using clear pigment powder (takes longer to dry thank ink, so that you have more time to emboss) and gold ink. 

Sorry I had to blur out the address – but hope you get an idea of the effect!

I did it for both the RSVP envelopes and on the back flap of our invites.  I think as long as you are mindful of your ink color choice, it will be fine.  I used black ink on green envelopes and silver on black envelopes.

I used an embosser (no ink) for the return address on my save the dates. I had one come back, so I don’t think the post office had any problem reading the return address.

I used http://www.rubberstampchamp.com.  I also sent them a pdf and received the stamp soon after.  I ordered 2 stamps (2 different fonts) and I believe shipping was free.

I have been using rubber stamps on my Christmas cards for years and the PO has never complained. as long as the address is ina simple font, all should be ok 🙂
