I had metallic envelopes for my Save-The-Date Cards and I used a dip pen, and ink pot from Micheals for the calligraphy.  It didn’t smear at all. 

Is the “elegant writer” a felt pen?  I think thats why its smearing. 

If you can, I’d switch to a dip pen with a nib, and an ink pot.

@lamkky:  I’d get a dip pen, it won’t smear.  The felt ones are crap.  If you get a dip pen it’ll be great!

I’ve been using a Gelly Roll metallic silver pen on our metallic envelopes and it doesn’t smudge at all.
