I’ve been meaning to post this tip for a couple weeks now. After finally deciding that we would use an inkjet printer to print addresses directly onto our envelopes (getting some quotes from calligraphers really helped me with that decision), our next challenge was that when we printed onto the envelopes, a lot of them came out smudged. I was really panicked because we had bought our printer (a Canon Pixma MG6220) for this very purpose! My fiance looked online for tips and found this one that worked: take anything that’s convex (I used a tablespoon, he used a fancy pen) and use it to firmly press down on all 4 sides of the envelopes. It took us some time but once we fed those envelopes through the printer there was no more smudging!
