I just wrote with my normal handwriting. It didn’t take all that long, especially since we used a return address stamp so didn’t have to write THAT out, lol. (The part that took the longest was gluing the dang envelope liners in! Took me seven hours to do a hundred of them! It is the only part of my wedding I even remotely tried to DIY and I was so frustrated and it took SO long I decided I wasn’t going to try to DIY any of the other things I had thought I might!)

@hartmamp:  I’ve done several bride’s envelopes on my printer. For all of you brides who read this: FIRST mock up several envelopes and test them to get the correct orientation, and position.. THEN use real envelopes. Otherwise you’ll waste all of your envelopes before you even begin. What program did you use to set these up? Did you check out your output settings on your print screen? Is the “Auto rotate” on? Go through each setting carefully. I’ve never had an issue with this, you just have to take your time.

Just went thru this! I printed the envelopes for engagement party invites and  they were gorgeous.Time for the STD and no luck…….here is my advice, cut some cardstock the  size of  your envelope to practice in the printer, it sucks to waste the actual envelopes. We had a lot of problems with mail merge, and in the end realized this printer would not print that small of an envelope. Check in to the specifics of the printer, good luck!
