we did navy envelopes with white labels and they all got to their locations.  i’m not sure what you’re asking about…. do you want to print black ink on the red envelopes??

If it’s a dark burgundy, I’d do a sample and take it to your post office to see if the type is legible enough.  If it’s a pure red, I think black ink will be enough of a contrast that it won’t cause a problem.  But taking it to the post office and asking is always a good idea!

I once saw on the news that the most difficult color to read in the post office machines is red.  They say during Christmas, they have constant problems.  Their tips (and why I remember all of this, I have no idea), is to make sure to print the to and from addresses in black ink, making sure it is large and clear.

We used orange envelopes for our STDS (laser printed the addresses in a dark purple color) and dark purple envelopes for our labels (handwrote addresses in gold ink) and didn’t have any problems. If the envelope is a dark red, I would definitely consider using labels, since black doesn’t always show up well on red.  Better safe than sorry, I think.

It’s not a bad idea going to the post office to ask, but you’ll only be talking to one person who’s opinion may not be that definitive!
