White on blue is a nice color combination; perfect contrast. I’d try the inks on a sample envelope and see which one you think looks best. Keep in mind that if it’s too bright or hard to read, that increases the risk your invites will be undeliverable. I’ve heard horror stories of the use of lighter inks that washed out and transit, rendering the invite undeliverable by the post office.

White ink is absolutely beautiful especially if lettered in COPPERPLATE. Be sure you use waterproof ink or you could have a horrible mess.

I tried white but went with silver… the white seemed to sink into the paper more and fade at the edges.  I think it could work, but I didn’t want to chance it!

It depends on the printing process.  Are you printing the envelopes or handwritting them?  Screen printing and engraving should work fine with the right ink.  Getting good white ink to do handwritting that is completely opaque on dark colors is so difficult.  The only thing I’ve found to work when I’m illustrating is to use liquid opaque acrylic and a very fine brush.
