So I’m (at long last) almost done with addressing and stuffing 107 envelopes. FI has offered to take over this weekend for what I am dubbing the “lick and stick” portion of the invitation process – licking and sticking seals on the envelopes. Thinking about ways to make it easier for FI (to avoid parchness and papercuts, haha) – someone suggested sponging the envelopes. Anyone know anything about this or have other solutions for us? 🙂

@pengoala:I used a regular ol’ sponge for mine and it worked great! Just make sure it’s not dripping wet, ring it out a bit first. I’ve also heard other bee’s saying a q-tip works wonders.

Get a sponge paintbrush from the craft store. That little handle makes a world of difference. I’d go with a 1 inch brush, maybe smaller depending on the size of your envelope.
Use a small bowl or saucer for the water, but don’t fill it all the way up. Use the edge of it to press some of the water out of the sponge so it doesn’t drip.

Save the tongue paper cuts! Get an envelope moistener. 🙂

@indibee: that’s what I used too. Borrowed it from my office even so I wouldn’t have to spend my own 35 cents.

Haha I just did this last weekend. My mom used a damp paper towel and a bowl of water. Cheap and easy.

I use a small bowl of water and my finger. No problem, and gets the job done.

We used a regular sponge lightly dipped in water. You don’t want to get the envelope to wet or it wipes away the glue.
