Do not lick them… I used a glue stick and it worked out great.

I used a sponge for me STD envelopes.  The first few got messed up b/c I used too much water but once I got the hang of it, the rest looked great!

I used a new kitchen sponge that was just barely damp. My calligraphy did not smear.

LOL, Belle and Tanya123.  I kept thinking of that Seinfeld epsiode while we were preparing the invitations.  We used a sponge to seal the invitations.  No way I was going to lick all those babies.

Nope, I am a clumsy envelope licker and tend to get paper cuts on my tongue! I’m a finger and water girl myself.

This is too funny!  Mom bought me an envelope sealing "glue stick" so that I wouldn’t end up like Susan…

Haha I tried to use a sponge, but it wasn’t working, so I licked them all, trying to take my time and drink water in between, thinking that would keep me from dying. LOL all I could think of was Seinfeld!

I’m not licking mine either.  In fact, I can’t… This is weird, but if you have a gluten allergy or Celiac like I do, you can’t because there is gluten on it.  So, even if I have one thing to mail, I make my Fiance lick the envelope. But for the 150 invites we’re sending… sponge all the way.

Honestly, when I was writing up the invites I was more focused on getting them done since I had a marathon session one night so I didn’t even think of the water and finger trick… I licked my way through 80 envelopes … BUT happy to say no paper cuts!!

I did lick mine, but I only had about 20. Nevertheless, I was thinking about Seinfeld as I was doing it. Happy to report no ill effects.
