I’ve definitely noticed envelope liners in invites I’ve gotten in the mail that were sealed. I don’t use a letter opener at home or know anybody who does?

Sticker would work. I sticker envelopes shut all the time and never had a problem.

either a sticker or one of those fancy wax seals with your initials would make it super fancy. 

you can get the lettered sealers at nearly any stationary store for under $10 and they even make the wax that goes in a gluestick these days!

wabanzi:  a former post office worker posted about needing to put masking tape over the stickers of enevelopes that were sealed with just stickers, so maybe an invisible tape topped with a sticker to ensure it’s sealed properly. I’d hate to see you have somet unsightly thing added to your invites!

wabanzi:  I intend on using a wax seal to prevent this issue, we have black lined envelopes and I definitely want people to notice them. We’ll then put that envelope into an outer envelope that will protect the inside.

I did an inner and outer envelope, the inner envelope was lined and I just used a small sticker to seal it which worked out great. But I don’t think I would have trusted that sticker to hold up through the mail on an outer envelope. I sealed my outer envelopes using my Scotch Tape Glider to make sure they didn’t pop open.

I think a lot of people will still notice regardless of how they open the envelope. I do use a letter opener but with a wedding invite I’m sure I’d still notice the liner, I may not get the full effect you were going for but I’d see it.

My daughter had the same problem.  She used single envelopes that we added a liner to and sealed shut completely.  I ripped mine when I opened it but we made extras for us to keep for a scrapbook.  I think most people at least got a glimpse of the liner before they threw the envelope away.  We just hoped for the best.
