So I took advantage of the printed addresses from Minted for my envelopes, but now I’m worried that it’ll be a bit plain. We’re stamping our return address on the back so I’d like to make the front of envelopes a little more special.
The addresses are pre-printed in small caps on white envelopes.
Suggestions? Examples would be fantastic.

So our Minted invitations came today. The invite is a tight fit in the envelope- I wish it was a little wider to fit the letterpress card better (the rsvp card, info card and envelope fit decently well). I’m not sure if we’re going to be able to a envelope liner because the fit is so tight. :/
So here’s the printed envelopes and they’re just so boring! If I had thought of it, I would have pre-printed just the address and then handwritten the name in some fancy font. Hindsight is 20/20.
Blue square is where the stamp will go- looks like we’re going be under 1oz haha.

I should have said that I already have a return address stamp for the back of the envelope
Stamps are cute, but I think I’ll only need one. I like the leaves even better!
that’s a good idea. I’m not that artistic, but I guess I could pratice on the ones going to my brothers- I doubt they’ll notice if it looks wonky.
If I could find a leaf/vine stamp I think that might be the way to go. Or maybe try tracing someithng?
The invite colors are lavender and dusty blue if that helps anything come to mind!

A decorative stamp in the corners maybe? You could use lavender or blue or…whatever!
Something like this maybe? http://m.dhgate.com/product/wholesale-christmas-corner-decorative-pattern/268071382.html

Ohh both of those are super cute ideas! Wish I would have thought of that when we did ours!

Stamps are the way to go. You could get blue and lavender ink to include both colors too. Not sure what sort of vines/leaves you’re going for but I love Paper Source.
Both of these would fit perfectly in a corner:

that papersource stamp would be perfect!!
Unfortunately, after fiddling around with the envelopes, the thick invitation is SUCH a tight fit with the provided envelope- it is seriously difficult to get that sucker out- that I’ve decided to just order a7.5 envelopes from cardsandpocket and do the addresses myself.
Sooo I’m spending another $20 on envelopes but I’m saving the extra .22c per inner by using a slightly lighter envelope. XD
