    We did the names of the addressees in the script font we’d picked for the invites and the actual addresses (street, town, zip, etc) in the non-script font we picked–in our case, copperplate.  That way the post office will have no trouble reading the address but we still got to tie the addresses back to the look of the invite inside and give a less ‘cold’ touch to the names of our guests.  I don’t remember seeing anyone else do this, but it looks pretty nice on ours.

    I second the names in script and the addresses in non-script. I’m trying to use that motif throughout my paper elements. Anything that is important or difficult to read in script is going in the non-script font. Our programs and table numbers and signage (for candy buffet and wish bowl) are like that too.

    Jingle had an amazing idea!  Do the printing in a light grey color (like pencil) and then using a calligraphy or metallic pen going over it .  She calls it “faux-ligraphy”!  I love her idea!
