if you have colored envelopes, don’t use the clear labels — they aren’t really clear. if you print them on a laserjet (like at kinkos) they won’t smudge.

I purchased some clear Avery address labels from Wal-Mart. They have a template that you can download which allows you to search for the type of labels that you purchased, and put all of the info on it.

I love it b/c it automatically populates for all of the labels on the page. You can do each label individually, or a whole sheet of labels with the same thing.

I didn’t have a problem with smudging, not even right off the printe.

It all depends on what you want to do.  You can easily run labels through your printer as well.  Just go to an Office Max or an office store and pick up labels, like Avery, and Microsoft Word has the templates available.  It’s pretty easy.  Then you can play around with fonts, colors, etc.  If you’re going with printed labels, I’d probably do clear.  Or you could do white if you wanted to have some sort of color or print shape surrounding the return address labels.  Have you seen any pictures of printed labels you like?  Maybe we could help you find something similar?

running the envelopes through my printer took about 10 minutes tops.

Just have all of the addresses and formats ready to go and then just copy and paste them to print. I didn’t even bother with an excel spreadsheet. It was pretty easy! Well… once I got the hang of it. I ran a couple of pages through that were the size of my envelope and you can do that beforehand.

@MrsMcGyro:  It shouldn’t take long to do the envelopes.  For mine, I was in a bit of a time crunch, too for my save the dates.  I made a word document the same dimensions as my envelope and copied it so I had 25 at a time on a page. 

Then I typed it in by hand.  I didn’t want to do a mail merge because I wanted to be able to format them individually, and print a bunch of them at once from a saved document.

It was well worth the piece of mind to spend the time typing it out by hand.  I test printed a couple using a piece of cardstock cut to the same size as the envelopes.

Once I had the envelopes in hand, it was literally 10 minutes or less to do them.

Good luck!

I know i’m a little late here but we had a similar problem, we needed to mail the invites the day they came or the day after. We got sheets of blue paper (wanted blue labels) and cut them to 2.25″x7″, addressed them and got a package of sticky sheets you rub on the back. So when the invites came we put the sticky stuff on and reinforce the corners with roll-on adhesive and had nice little wrap around labels for them.

I don’t remember what the sticky stuff is called, i can post that and a picture of our labels when i get home tonight. You should be able to just run it through the printer though to get the addresses (we did ours by hand)

The sticky stuff was studio tac

it’s “removable” so you can peel it off if needed. we reinforced the corners with some permanent adhesive that comes in a rolling tape dispenser like those white out roll on contraptions.

here’s our finished invites. We did the addresses in silver–sorry had to blur them out :-/
