We had white envelopes and the pen I liked the look of best was a Uniball (the Vision Elite). I looked at all sorts of fancy pens, even tried calligraphy, but that was the one I ended up going with.

@CarolinaCola:  My husband used a caligraphy pen to do them in caligraphy.

I addressed a friend’s invites for her in an ink pen.

@CarolinaCola:  I printed out the envelopes with one of my calligraphy fonts, and then traced over with a fine point sharpie. They turned out really pretty 🙂

I used a Sheaffer caligraphy pen.  I used a medium-sized fountain point, and just wrote in my normal handwriting.  It turned out pretty well.

UniBall! We have Kraft paper envelopes, so I’m using one in white.

I’ll be doing mine in calligraphy, using ink and a dip pen nib.

First Marriage (circa 1980), I used a Fountain Pen with a Nib & Cartridges, and did my own version of Calligraphy

This time round…

I used a Calligraphy Marker from Staples… and it worked great

Hope this helps,

Do you have a nice printer? You can feed envelopes through (one at a time) and use a really nice font on them!
