So I’ve been doing some calligraphy practicing, got my invitation envelopes in the mail, and am set to do some hand-lettering. Only one problem. I love my non-waterproof-ink-compatible fountain pen, but I’ve read that you should use waterproof ink for addressing — humidity, friction, etc. can cause the ink to smudge. Does anyone know if this is really a problem? Should I get a new pen and ink (I’m trying to stay away from the markers — the tips are too thick)? Try the spray that keeps ink from smudging? If I use the spray will it make the envelopes shiny?
I must have too much time on my hands to be concerned about this…
