My fiancée and I are both fun and energetic people and love to express our creativity and personality. Which that being said I was considering addressing our save the dates using either a light pink sharpie oot a grey/silver metallic sharpie (our wedding colors are grey and dusty pink). As a guest recieving a save the date would you think this is cute or tacky?

I would instead try to find a calligraphy pen in that color and use that. Sharpie isn’t neat enough.
Sheaffer makes pink ink, so all you would need to do is buy a pen from them.
Pen – $14.95 – http://theconsumerlink.com/product_detail.asp?BID=Sheaffer&T1=TCL+73403&navStart=11&.
Ink – $5.25 – http://theconsumerlink.com/Sheaffer/detail/TCL+96335/114

Be careful. I wanted to do white on brown paper bag and read a lot of posts about postal issues and what the machines can read, what they charge extra for, and even ones girl whose invites got delayed/lost bc of colored ink. :(. May not be full truths but I didn’t want to risk it.
Btw I don’t think your idea is tacky.

Ok so now I’m finding a ton of posts that say USPS won’t care what color your ink is. Does anyone know the deal with this? Anyone ever called or gone in to ask. White on my brown paper bag envelopes would be pretty. And so would the pink or grey on creativeones stds.

I ended up getting a plain black calligraphy pen but I plan to call the postal office and look into it so we can do a fun color when we send thank you cards out. I would like to do colored ink on my invitations but we are getting those done by a calligrapher
