    we did printed. personally, i feel like people (other than brides) don’t pay attention to the envelopes, and they will just throw them away. that’s a whole lot of time and hand cramps for nothing.

    i think either is acceptable. handwritten is a nice touch, but not necessarily at the expense of your hand falling off (although kudos to you if you decide to do it). i did decide to handwrite mine, but i only had about 35 to send out.

    I’d pop in a movie and handwrite them. It’s a sizeable chore, but a label just feels a little too impersonal to me and informal. If you must go the printing route, at least print them directly to the envelope. A label seems too “you’re on a giant mailing list.”

    The envelope will just be thrown away it’s what is inside that counts!

    I say print the labels!

    I have almost that same amount so I have decided to print them off the printer directly onto the envelope! I donwloaded a nice font!

    I think handwritten is best but if you don’t have great handwriting or the task is too daunting I would print directly on the envelopes.  Labels just seems a little too impersonal.

    I printed the wrap around labels on the same kind of paper as the envelopes are (linen) and I think that way is fine.  I used a fancy font and it looks really nice and presentable.  Personally if your choosing between clear lables to stick on or handwriting them I say handwrite becauce I hate getting wedding invites with just a clear label.  Though of course just my opinion, maybe no one else cares!!
