@MissFireFlower:  AH I wish you had posted this a few months ago! We did embossing on our invitations inside a pocket fold and on some of the invites, the embossing must have heated going through the machine and it second stamped on the other sides of the inserts etc… it was so disappointing! I’m sure this post will help SO many brides!

I honestly find this so interesting. I would love to take a tour of the post office and see how it works. For some reason the whole mail sorting process is really interesting to me and it amazes me how a tiny slip of paper can make it across the country in a few days!

This is great advice!

Do ALL ‘plants’ pull black envelopes? If they do, that solves my problem as to where to tie black into our invitations!

Thank you! Would a deep purple be pulled like the black envelope due to unreadability?

@Nurse_Bee:  I was wondering the same thing – are all dark colors treated like black envelopes?  And, if they are sorted by hand, what does that mean – slows down the process?

OP, thank you so much – this should be mandatory reading for all brides!!  Fascinating!
