@millielue:  they can be.  A lot of people get a calligraphy return address stamp.  Here, check out my blog here, with my Save-The-Date Cards.   I did our return address on the back flap.

Save the dates are way too new to hit any of the etiquette books so the rules don’t apply to them. Also, they are very informal in nature so you can do whatever you want. Invitiations however need to be handwritten.

As far as it being extremely taboo to hand deliver them, then countless people who have been the ultimate in etiquette gurus (not necessarily Emily Post but all the snobby proper Victorians and folks before and after their time before any postal service had been put in place) should have been scandalized by their peers but that never happened, since everything had to be hand delivered as there were no alternatives. Why would it be any different today if someone chooses to go that route? There is nothing improper about hand delivering them if you choose, and no one has the right to judge you for it.

@Ember78:  I agree!  Hand delivering is fine, you just have to make the choice for yourself.  We chose not to, because we wanted to use vintage stamps. +
