I am about to order the inviations and realized they do not include the guests’addresses. My handwriting is horrible. We are thinking we’ll just take the envelopes to Kinkos or something. How did you handle it?

I just printed the envelopes at home

I hired a calligrapher. It was relatively inexpensive and worth every single penny.

We printed the STD envelopes on our home printer, and used labels for the invites. Our printer wasn’t accepting the invite envelopes, otherwise we would have printed those as well.

My husband learned basic caligraphy when he was in the 4th grade. Turns out, it’s not that hard with the right pen so he addressed all of them. They weren’t perfect, but they were cute and legible, which is all we really wanted.

I addressed them by hand. I have pretty nice cursive handwriting, and with a little bit of preliminary practice, was able to make them look pretty good! However, in retrospect, I totally could have just printed them…I was being an etiquette stickler and I doubt people really care about that particular element.

MuseForever: I wrote them all out but have super nice and neat handwriting. We tried to print them but the printer kept messing up – so I said screw it and did it myself.

MuseForever: Printed them at home. I wanted to follow etiquette however I couldn’t justify the expense of a calligrapher and have terrible handwriting so I downloaded some pretty (and free) fonts. I used a combination of Contribute and High Tower and think it came out pretty well. (I would have printed a test one so you could see more of the fonts, but I’m running out of envelopes with all my mix-ups so sorry for all the blackouts.)

cbgmtx: It looks amazing! I’ve decided to reduce the size of the info card and have the vendor print the envelopes. If it ends up being about the same price, I will do that to sleep calm knowing that I won’t mess up the envelopes!

MuseForever: Good decision! I finally figured out why things were printing wonky — the envelopes are 5.25″x7.25″, not 5″x7″. Save yourself the pain of printing them at home! 🙂
