My personal preferences…


1.  I would make sure whatever font you choose easy easy to read, so maybe a “handwriting” style font wouldn’t be the best.  It just depends on how “script-y” it is.  You want to make sure that the guests receive the invitation when you send them 🙂

2.  As long as it looks proportional to the envelope, you should be fine

3.  I would print the envelopes in black of if you really want to use purple, make sure it is fairly dark.  I think machines read the text at the post office so I don’t know if light colors would pose a problem.

Congrats on mastering mail merge – it can be such a pain!

Here’s my two cents:

  • I’d use the font you had on your invites, as long as its readable.
  • As for the size, I highly recommend printing out some practice envelopes first. Sometimes it just doesn’t look how you expected it to, so try out different font sizes/placements on the page, and go with whatever looks best.
  • I’m trying to decide between using a wedding color or just going with black, as well. I think I’m leaning towards using a wedding color in the interest of making the envelopes more pretty =)

Good luck – I found this process a little frustrating when printing my save-the-dates, but at least I didn’t have to sit there hand writing them all in my terrible handwriting!

I just did mine too! I used the same font on the envelopes, for a cohesive look.

A tip on the actual printing, which I wish I had learned before ruining 10 envelopes & gaining several grey hairs I’m sure…. Fold the flap inside the envelope before feeding it through. My printer was not liking the flap, and kept eating my envlopes! Once it was tucked in though, it printed perfectly!
