I was wanting dark blue/navy envelopes for my invites. My designer asked if I wanted matte or metallic. Thinking metallic sounded good, I told her probably metallic but it depends upon the actual color really. Well, I was thinking I was going to thread them through the printer and go over so it looks like caligraphy…and I want to use some sort of white ink. I read somewhere today that metallic envelopes don’t dry well and smear. So now I am thinking maybe matte envelopes. My question is either way I need to get a pen or something to write the addresses-any suggestions for white or silver pens that show up well on dark envelopes? Anyone else run into problems with metallic envelopes? How did you solve it? (I know I could do something like a wrap or label but I don’t want to if I don’t have to).
