@MissFireFlower:  thank you for this post! 


So I have these invites with a bow…what would the cost of postage be? and should I bring it into the post office instead of my mailbox—does that help w/preventing damage?

Thanks for posting this!  I’m not going to be posting in the US, but I imagine it’ll be similar posting via Royal Mail in the UK.  I never thought about better quality envelopes really protecting the contents!  Daft I suppose, as that’s what it’s meant to do…

Such a great thread!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you for writing and posting!

What happens to a calligraphed invitation? I don’t want to do an inner and outer envelope, I just want to do one envelope with calligraphy. Are invites like these processed differenty, and are there any precautions I should be aware of?

Sorry if that is a dumb question!

I have been looking everywhere.. maybe it’s common sense, but I saw this amazing type of invitation but it’s made in another country so their mailing procedures are most likely different.


Anyhow, I was wondering if something like this would be okay to send out? It’s obviously tied together well and will probably hold up, but I wanted to make sure that it is possible to send.
