So I was trying to figure out how to put the return label on my invitations. I saw during my google searches that it should go on the back flap of the envelope. The envelopes that I have came with a black flap and I’m printing them out myself. Should I just put it on the front? Attempt to print in white ink on the back?

I would do them on the back flap if it’s possible.

I put it on the front, because even though it looks nicer on the back, I think the USPS prefers it on the front.

I would run a test print to see if your printer will grab and print the envelope straight (I had this problem with my STDs). I do think the back looks nicer if you can make it work. I also know my printer won’t print white ink, even if I put colored paper in it, so check your settings. We are using a custom made stamp and physically stamping the back flaps of ours (just another idea if the printing doesn’t work out). The stamp was like $20 from Etsy and arrived in a week.

I printed my own return address labels and put them on the back.

@prtylilblonde: FYI, printers don’t print white ink. when you see “white ink” it’s because the printer prints the background color and doesn’t print ink for the words (the white paper is what causes the white “ink”).

We’re putting ours on the back using an embosser. It was cheap (like $30-40) and we actually use it for Christmas and birthday cards that we send out as well. You don’t have to worry about ink vs. paper color this way. I’d show ours off, but I’d prefer not to give out our address so publicly. PM me if you’d like to see it.

I printed mine at home and got them on the back. Just cut a piece of paper to size and figure out orientation… once you have that, it is super easy!!
