We are planning on sending out our Save-The-Date Cards this weekend. Since the format is pretty informal (postcards), we were thinking it would be okay to print labels on our printer. Our formal invites will have calligraphy, but the STD postcards are very casual and we weren’t sure what proper etiquette dictates for Save-The-Date Cards.
I tried to think of all of the Save-The-Date Cards we’ve received and I honestly can’t remember. Should we hand write the addresses, or are printed labels acceptable for STDs?

i used printed labels for my invitations. i know that by some etiquette standards this is a no-no, but i also feel that anymore, etiquette is flexible. labels made sense for me, both financially (i did not want to spend major $$ on calligraphy for an envelope that will be thrown away 3 seconds after it is seen) and in terms of saving time. besides — there are many different styles of labels out there. many are beautiful!!

I’m with Ms. Fondue– I think labels are fine. I may handwrite my invitation envelopes (no caligraphy; I’d rather allocate the money elsewhere) or I may end up doing fancy labels. But for the Save-The-Date Cards I think it’s perfectly acceptable to use lables.
