Send one to yourself from another part of town and see for yourself how intact it is when it arrives.

Would hand-cancelling solve the problem?  I was always under the impression that hand-cancelling prevents the invites from having to go through the machines that tend to destroy certain pieces…. but I may be wrong! 

I agree with Mrs. Lollipop about sending one to yourself, though.  I’ve done that before with other things to see how it arrives to me.  And it can never hurt to ask the people at the post office if they think it will create a problem.

I would send a tester from another part of the country… when mail goes from one location to another, they scan them… I know that when I send mail from Florida to Boston, it goes through Washington DC, so it is extra scanned because terror threat stuff— anthrax, etc…

Hand cancelling helps with the situation, but unfortunately it isn’t going to prevent it from being put through machines.

What if you make a separate outer envelope then tie a bow around the inner invitation? Too much hassle? Would that solve the problem?

This is Mrs. Emerald.

Perfect bows are hard to tie and they can leave a big ole BUMP/dent in your envelope. I think the little bows I made are neater and flatter, but of course I am absolutely biased!! hehehe =) Good luck!
