@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)
