@piyo:  i love the look of the wrap address label but this is the exact reason why i didn’t use them.  i hope that you don’t get many returned.  good luck.

Yikes!

I used wrap-around labels for both our shower thank-yous AND all of our wedding thank-yous! Of the ~100 envelopes sent that had wrap-around labels, not a single one was returned.

Sounds like it just depends on the post office, how much they’re relying on the machines to do the reading and sorting, and whether or not they really want to be a pain. =

I did the same thing, but with the return address I turned it 90 degrees so it was sideways hoping the machine wouldn’t pick it up. I sent about 50 out and only 1 came back, which I just popped right back in the mail.

But those were save the dates, I am wondering if I should still keep the wrap arounds for the actual invites.

I used wrap arounds for our invites AND RSVP envelopes. We have only gotten one back – and it seems to be an incorrect address. I’ve already started getting RSVP’s, so people are getting them! Not sure what happened there… people have put return labels on the back forever.
