My envelopes were just to be and as hard as I tried, I couldn’t put it through my printer.  I instead opted for clear labels and used a really nice font.  If anyone cared, no one said anything (not that I would care); it’s the inside that counts and I got rave reviews for my invites – pocketfolds also done via printer.

Otherwise, I’d opt for wraparound, though it’ll take a bit more time and more expense than clear labels, imho.  GL.

Yea if you aren’t very computer savy a mail merge can be very frustrating.

Printing envelopes can be a much bigger time suck than just writting them out. If you’re not already skilled in that dept., just start writing. Bet you’ll be done before you spend the time figuring it out, getting your printer to do it write and waste a bunch of envelopes trying.

Lables would def. be easier. You print several on a page and would be easier to layout and print using the template. Good luck!

Glad for you, Mom of a Bride! As I am usually “the friend” who does this kind of thing for others, there is no one for me to ask. My samples from Somewhere in Time Calligraphy should arrive any day and I can’t wait to see them. Hope that’s the solution for me, http://www.somewhereintimecalligraphy.com/
