I don’t think they hand cancel everywhere anymore due to the time and expense.

My local post office still hand cancels (usually they do it, but once they let me do it). That being said, for my county, they still got run through the machine and got the black barcode/black smudge at the top despite the fact that my stamps were completely, correctly hand cancelled. I didn’t have any elaborate 3D elements to my invitation, so it wasn’t ruined but it definitely wasn’t as pretty/clean as I would have liked. For some areas though, the hand cancelled stamp was the only one on there.

My post office (in Philly) hand cancelled 50 for free, then it was 5 cents for each additional invite. They didn’t run them through the machine at all. 

Here’s one after it got to its destination.
