I’ve fallen in love with the wrap-around labels and found a great etsy seller that put together a custom template to match my invitation suite…. here’s my question: do you know if there are specific regulations about WHERE the address is placed on the envelope (for the receiver) or do you think this would be OK? I’m a little worried b/c it it not centered and this is the size it would be using the template.
Also, I know it’s common to put the return address on the back of the envelope for formal invitations like these but the USPS website says it should be on the front (like normal, in the upper left corner)…. has anyone had problems getting them returned when their return address was on the back? (ie: if they were addressed wrong or the guest had moved, etc).
THANKS FOR YOUR INSIGHT! 🙂 TGIF!

@SuperShopper: Hi There. Nope, your all good. I just mailed mine out the other week and had no issues. What USPS says are basically guidelines. you have to do something really odd, to get it returned to you. Here are mine:

I also put my return address on the back of the envelope. One came back, but it was because the person had moved. I think the problems arise when the USPS doesn’t understand which address to send the envelope to, but you should be fine.

The machine starts scanning for the address at the bottom right, goes left, then up and at the right again. Unless you bulk mail, if the machine can’t read it for some reason, a person will read it and sort it by hand. As long as the address is on the front and is the first thing at the bottom, you’ll be fine. 🙂

I printed our envelopes and placed the address just about flush with the left side, went up about half the height of the envelope, and on a few went almost to the other side but most were about 1″ in from the right side. (hope that makes sense)
