if i were in your shoes, i’d start addressing them right now!  i think you’re past the point of having them addressed in professional calligraphy.  it is so pretty, though, i understand your dissapointment.  i think it would look bad on your part if you sent out invites later than the rsvp, though.  like all your guests were on your “B” list or something.  i wouldn’t even try to run them through the printer, or put pretty labels on them… just address them, by hand, in your neatest handwriting possible.  it’ll take a few hours, but you’ll be done, and can get them sent this week!

I would just go ahead and send them out. At the end of the day, I think more people will be upset that they got so little time to plan. I doubt they’ll notice the writing.

I would definitely scrap the calligraphy and write them out or do labels and get them in the mail ASAP.  We did labels and busted them out in like two hours.  🙂

I picked a pretty font on my computer and printed the address on the envelopes in a very light color and then went over it with a fine tip sharpie to give it that handwritten look. They came out fabulous!

I would start addressing them now. You dont want them to be even more late.

I set up a page on microsoft word for the size of my envelopes and then I cut a piece of paper to that size and printed some samples. It let me choose the font I needed, then I printed out in a light gray and went over it with a brown sharpie. That sucks that you couldn’t make your font bigger. Here’s how mine came out:

I think it would still be okay if you just printed it in the color you want, plus it may be faster.

I’d say print right on the envelope or make labels. It will definitely be faster than hand writing them out.

We printed labels on the computer and stuck them on. Nobody cared this is what we did. They got their invites and that is what matters.

@JoJo Bananas: Yes, do this right now! It will be way faster than hand addressing them, you need to get these out asap!

If it makes you feel any better I just picked up my box from the post office. (our wedding aret the same day :). I wanted everyone to HAVE them 10 days ago BUT, the invitation gals computer crashed putting a 3-day delay on them, then our reception time had to change, so I had to resubmit my whole request, then they got sent out on Monday from IL and since my post.office is open the same hours that I work ( I work in the next town over from where I live), I couldn’t pick them up until TODAY. Oh, I was able to go late yesterday to pick them up at the PO only for them to tell me that they couldn’t find them and I should check back tomorrow…. in the end I FINALLY have them TODAY.My wrist is already hurting at the thought of writing out 150 invites!! yikes! P.S ~ if you are choosing to write them out, I am using an ultra fine sharpie pen. I made some faint pencil marks for lines to keep the letters looking nice 🙂 just at FYI …..
