We just found out that some of our save the dates never made it to their recipients. I spoke to another bride friend and she mentioned that some of her invitations never made it either. For those of you who dealt with similar issues, did your cards eventually make their way there or were they pretty much lost?
Also, could there be a possibility that ink would rub off or using fancy script made it illegible? It didnt seem unclear, but maybe we just got a frustrated mailperson who decided to just chuck some of them away, grr.
Darn post office!!!!

I’ve had USPS people stick my obviously unmachineable items into the machine and turn them into so much confetti. Predominantly anything square I try to send.
So what shape invitations did I fall in love with? Square. I’d suggest actually taking the invitations into the post office and talking to them about how to try to avoid ones getting lost or damaged, see if they have any tips.
Of course, I’ve also had a delivery person break both covers of an inch thick hardcover textbook in a padded envelope over his knee in order to shove it into my mailbox…I don’t think there’s a way around potential massive incompetence.

Does having the invtes hand cancelled prevent any of this?

I wonder if something weird is going on all over. I have mostly good luck with the USPS, but I sent a package to my sister the first week in March (Priority Mail) and another last week, and they both arrived the same day (yesterday). WTF!! On the other hand, I got a really sweet note in my mailbox from my postman, who can’t figure out why my insurance company can’t figure out my name since I sent them the appraisal for my e-ring. After three envelopes addressed to FirstName NotYetMyLastName (all of which he had noted with a polite question mark) apparently the suspense was too much for him. The Easter card from my cousin addressed to me "And Soon To Be Family" possibly tipped him off as to what was going on.
