I think labels are fine.  yeah handwritten is nice but not everyone can do that.  I would stick to san serif fonts like arial… basically just look to see what matches.

Clear labels are totally fine. Go for it. We printed off our envelopes because we couldn’t be bothered to handwrite them and those that noticed said they liked the font. 🙂

Personally I don’t think that the font needs to match but it’s totally up to you. Choosing one or two fonts to use consistently throughout your wedding is a super easy way to get a cohesive look if that’s what you’re going for. But the chances are that nobody is going to notice.

I agree that clear labels are fine.

I would pick a font that coordinates, but that doesn’t mean it has to be really similar.

For instance, a font like I’m typing now or the above is called sans serif because there aren’t little edges hanging off the letters. A serif font would be what you would find in a typical novel or newspaper article. I think you could get away with a funky serif font (if that’s your thing), or a classic serif or sans serif font. I would avoid the more “common” fonts, though, just to give your Save-The-Date Cards some flair.

P.S. Here’s an example. I think something like these could work, but I think the second one (or a serif font like it) would look better if the address is on the flip side of the postcard and not right next to the “STD” part.

I like Sans Serif too.  Keep it simple and a little more contemporary.

Also you could go to myfonts.com where you can type in sample text (like an address) and scroll over various fonts till you find one you like.  They have a lot of free ones you can download as well!

Labels are fine. I personally like to keep fonts consistent, so I would match it if possible. I think the font used in that sample is Futura (there are a lot of different versions of Futura, though).
