Pros: they look awesome

Cons: they can be a pain in the butt

Where did you buy your envelopes? If they’re Paper-Source, I know they sell pre-cut liners. All you need is an afternoon and a glue roller/stick/whatevs.

I agree with scissors – they look pretty amazing, and they’ll probably add a little thickness to your envelope. They are a pain, though! It’s a relatively simple project, however, and I think it ends up with some awesome results!

The pros – they look great, and can add another dimension to your suite, and they add some weight. They also aren’t necessarily all that time consuming. My Fiance cut them out and I pasted them in and we got them done in an afternoon. Buying the pre-cut ones would save you the time of cutting them out. 

The cons – uhm. I actually didn’t have any cons, since I didn’t have to do any of the cutting 🙂

Pros – they look pretty and custom.

Cons – they can be a bit finicky to put in I didn’t find them that bad), and if you’re super close to going up in postage they might put you over the edge.  I could have saved myself .22 cents per invite in postage if I’d ditched the liners, which could add up if you have a lot of guests.

Also, maybe nobody will notice, and that work will be for nothing.  Also, if people use a letter opener to open, or otherwise just rip open the top of envelopes, they really won’t notice they’re there.
