I would emboss first, then address, then line.

That way you don’t have to worry about curled liners, and if there are problems with the process you won’t have wasted energy addressing envelopes that may have to be replaced.

Yep agree w/ teaadntoast that sounds like the best plan of action!

I would address them, emboss them, then line them. 

Good luck!

@bRooklynRocks: Ah – I thought you might be hand addressing them.  In that case, I would print, then emboss, then line.

Address first, then emboss, then line for sure. That is the easiest way to make sure that the embossing doesn’t melt or cause your envelope to become stuck in your printer.

Good luck, invitations are so exciting.

I agree with the others: printer, embossing, lining.  

Personally, I’m cheating by using return address labels.  Quick, easy, and less arguing with the printer. What???  I know it’s cheating and breaks the etiquette rules, but so what?  it works!  and people can read it! 😛
