Aw, I’m sorry. That sounds SO frustrating! I hope the majority of your guests got your invites and will promptly send you their RSVPs to save you the hassle of tracking everyone down. Good luck!

Whoa! I’m so sorry this is happening but you are handling it as best you can. I never heard of a recipient having to pay extra for postage — I always thought it was returned to the sender for extra postage. Odd. Thanks for posting to warn us all about the postage amount, always a good reminder.

Oh no!  I hope things work out and that this is the worst thing that will happen.  I’m sure your day will be perfect 🙂

We’ve had this happen a few times with christmas cards, where we received a christmas card with Postage Due stamped on it, and a little enveleope that you’re suppose to put the money in, then leave in your mailbox for the next days pickup.  But i grew up in a small town, i don’t know if it’s the same everywhere.  but sometimes it would be like .10 due.  really??

anyway, i don’t know if this will work, but maybe you could try heat setting them if they are still smearing.  i know it works with stamp ink.  if you have heat gun that is.  i wouldn’t go buy one just to try it out.

If you are using an inkjet printer I think the ink will keep smearing on the metallic envelopes.  🙁  You can run out to Michaels or an art store and get a can of fixative to spray over them.  It will stop the ink from running.

Hey, date twin! I haven’t gotten mine out yet, but I hopefully will have them done by the end of the week.

I feel you. I thought I had the postage figured out using our scale at home, but I didn’t realize that the envelopes are oversized, so it’s not just the letter rate. Fortunately I asked them to check when I went to the post office.
