I ran my envelopes straight through the printer.  If that’s an option for you, I think it does look way better than a label.  

I personally notice how they’re addressed, but it doesn’t really matter to me.  When I get totally hand-written invites, I notice and go oooh, but, as I said, I chose to run mine straight through the printer, so I don’t think less of those in any way… I guess that puts me in the “notice” but don’t care camp.

I will most likely be printing my envelopes.  I don’t think that there are many people out there that are offended by the lack of calligraphy on invites these days.

I’m using wraparound labels for mine.  I think they’re cute and MUCH easier than handwriting everything!

I’ll either be using wraparound labels or running them through the printer. But I definitely won’t be handwriting them!

I think this is a really common question.  I myself am a big advocate of handwriting them, but it’s not an earth-shattering stretch of etiquette.  I am doing calligraphy on mine, actually.  If you’re not up for writing, then print away.

I received one with a label and I just don’t like how it looks and how quick I know it’s done. Printing makes it better, somehow. Though, even if you don’t do calligraphy or anything fun/difficult, even your daily handwriting looks fine.

I say go for it! I’m sooooooo not into etiquette though, LOL, and I’m not into any of this paper stuff, so I should probably not be giving advice on this. If some of the older people on my guestlist used computers, I’m not so sure I wouldn’t just send email invites!
