Hmm, this doesn’t help you- but you know the spray you use over graphite drawings?  I wonder if you sprayed that on your invitations if it would keep them from smearing in the machines.

Anywho, I’m really sorry that they ran them through the machines anyway, that’s really annoying.

@Spinwife:Yeah, I got mine hand cancelled, but they still run them through the machine later in the sorting process. I know because mine got cancelled at the national postal museum where they do them all by hand. Bummer, huh? You can see the stamp is by hand, but later (at the 2nd stop) they end up in the machine. Just the way it is. It’s why the double envelope is still popular.

Unfortunately, “hand cancelling” doesn’t mean that your envelopes will never go through any machines.  All it means is that they don’t go through the machine that cancels the stamp, they still go through sorting machines.  Obviously the post office has to automate these things…can you imagine if the whole process was done by hand? It would take your invitation months to get across the country.
