I don’t know how these were mailed but requesting mail to be hand cancelled will prevent damage. there is no additional cost but they would have to be dropped off at usps

wvkc:  The PP is correct you can have it hand cancelled for free (which they will have you do) at the post office. But that’s only for the machines at that office, if you want them to not go through any machine you will have to tell them you want it “hand cancelled and non-machined.” This will avoid ALL sorting machines…but comes with an extra $0.21/per invite. Good luck!

I put the wax seal on the inside name envelope for mine. It was just easier and the outside address envelope protected it. I had a friend just use stickers with a monogram letter of her new last name, it still looked pretty and she didn’t have to worry about the seal cracking.

That’s so unfortunate that this happened! I had wax seals on mine, and if it wasn’t for the kind woman at the post office telling me that there would be a risk of the seals cracking/breaking – and that I should have them hand-cancelled, mine would probably be in the same condition!

Omg I just mailed my invitations yesterday. I wish  I saw this thread before I send them. I eveN when to the post office myself to drop them off wish the lady should have told me so. Oh well I am heart broken but it is what it is.
