I have TERRIBLE handwriting. My handwriting is so bad that when i sent out my graduation annoucements after college, half of them got lost or returned because the post office couldn’t read my writing. According to the etiquette I’ve read, it is in extremely poor taste to print out labels for wedding invitations.
If this is so, I have 150 invites to address and need some suggestions.
Has anyone tried stamping names/addresses? is there a good stamp set that has all 26 letters and numbers that I could rearrange to spell out all the addresses?
Or should I break down and hire someone to do it for me?

I have horrible handwriting too, so I bought a calligraphy pen from Micheal’s. It’s just an ink pen (more of a marker, really) that writes in a calligraphy style. It really made a difference for me.

I think it’s totally acceptable to print addresses directly on to the envelope, or make really chic wraparound labels. I’d suggest checking out the Gourmet Invitations blog for inspiration – Tifany prints on envelopes in all sorts of gorgeous ways!

Hand stamping would be cute, but it might be really time consuming. I would try wrap around labels or enlisting a couple friends with good handwriting help you. You could even have friends hand write the addresses and do the return addresses with a blind embossing plate from PaperSource: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/invitations/embossers/address.html
