    i had the same problem with my invitations and im also assembling my invites this week. I was thinking of buying labels but then i decided not to do it. i took some time and handwrite it all of the response envelopes. it a lot of work but i think they came out perfect.

    Do you have a crazy number of envelopes? Would it be possible to just hand write them? You and your Fiance could split the task. Otherwise, i’d just go with the labels you’ve already got – otherwise you’ll be cutting it too close time-wise with your resoinse date.

    I think since it’s just the response card and not the main envelope you should just go with whatever is easiest.  People will still have that good first impression, and they won’t care what the envelope that is going back to you looks like. For me doing what was easiest would mean paying for 2 day shipping or using the “clear” labels, but I think you could also hand write them if it isn’t too many.  But do whatever is easiest for you and get them out.

    Go with what you have! I know it’s not the perfect image you had in your head but it’s better to get them out asap!

    Find out how much it would cost to have your local copy shop print the address directly on the envelopes for you.  I’m sure they have the capacity to do that.

    Good luck!  Doesn’t it seem like the simplest tasks some how always become complicated?

    I wouldn’t worry about the response cards too much. But good luck in getting it all done!

    I think the clear/white labels will be fine. Most people just see who the envelope is addressed to and then rip it open.

    It won’t look perfect, but I’d just go with it.  No one will care.

    We bought a rubber stamp with our address on Etsy, and stamped it right in the middle of the response card envelope.  It worked and looked awesome.

    I did clear labels on my response cards- as long as there is an address on it, I really don’t think anyone is going to care about it or even notice.
