Okay so I have what seems to be a simple issue but I can not find ANYTHING on the web about it. I need a solution.
My invitations are rustic and wrapped with a twine bow on each one. It looks cute, but the twine leaves a residue (looks like oil) on the envelopes I put them in. How can I prevent this? I know lots of people do twine wrapped invitations so this MUST be a common problem, right?
I’m thinking of making wax paper envelopes to use as an inner envelope that keeps the oil from leaking into the paper outer envelope. I think this would work but I’m not sure it would look good and it would be a lot of extra work. Is there a simple solution I’m missing? Any thoughts will be very appreciated! Thanks 🙂

i’d with a wax paper liner in the envelope.
it’s weird that the twine is leaving a greasy oil on the paper. did you put the twine on? i’ve never seen twine do that.

@kellyyoujelly: the envelope just gets thrown away as soon as it’s opened. Don’t waste your time changing them because of a few oil stains.

@colorofmyheart : I can’t find wax liners anywhere! My graphic designer put the twine on. I’m not sure what kind she used!
@aquaria : I know I know, but I tend to care what people think perhaps more than I should and I just want them to look perfect.

@kellyyoujelly: I had no idea twine would do this to the envelope? Where did you get your envelopes?
What was your final decision? Did you do the wax liner inside the envelope?

I would write/print the address on something that gets stuck on the front of the envelope. Might be worth a shot?
