This post, How to Address your Wedding Invitation Envelopes – Part 2, is going to cover four different envelope printing methods for placing your guest’s address onto the envelope! Let me note that these four methods are not the ONLY way to address envelopes, but they are, in my opinion, the most common and most traditional ways.
In How to Address Your Wedding Invitation Envelopes – Part 1, I shared with you proper techniques to write your guest addresses, please reference that post before moving to Part 2.
1. DIGITAL ENVELOPE PRINTING
Printed by Paper Hearts in our studio, digital address printing is an easy way to address envelopes and have the font and colors match your invitation. You submit an excel sheet (we provide the template) and we print the envelopes – as simple as that! A PDF proof is always provided so you can double check your addresses before they hit the press. We also print your return address on the front left corner or on the back flap of the envelope!
2. WRAP-AROUND LABELS
Perfect for when you don’t have it in the budget to print white ink on dark colored envelopes, wrap around labels are a stylish way to address your envelopes without using those ugly white or clear “corporate” labels. Also printed right in our studio, Paper Hearts offers this type of labeling to our brides and is set up with an excel sheet similar to digital printing directly onto the envelope.
Hand-lettered envelopes is a stylish way to address envelopes by combining traditional calligraphy and modern lettering.
