stressin over envelopes

How did you address your envelopes?   I'm leaning towards printing them, but I'm having a hard time finding a place to do them.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  TIA

    FI's aunt does caligography, so we may ask her.

    Either that or try to print them ourselves on the computer in a pretty font.

    Honestly, enevelops are something I refuse to let myself spend money on. They end up in the garbage 10 minutes after guests receive them.

    We printed them from the computer. Cheap and easy. Like PP said, people are just going to chuck them anyway.

    I'm going to buy those super CLEAR address labels and print the labels and stick them on the envelope.  I did this for my engagement party and it turned out great.

    I printed mine at home and I think they came out really nice. There are pics in my bio with the fonts I used. For the replies we used the clear labels on pink envelopes.

    I printed on my computer for both the invite envelopes and reply envelopes. Everyone keeps saying how nice they look. I am so happy we didn't spend money on a calligrapher for that- literally it's in the trash the second someone opens the invite.

    Our family friend did them but had she not been able to we would have printed them on our printer.

    My sister has her own calligraphy business so she is doing mine.  If she wasnt doing them I probably would print them on the computer.

    How did you do them at home?  With Microsoft Word?

    This is gonna sound nuts, but I am printing them with a SUPER light gray color and then going over with a gold pen so that it looks like it is hand done calligraphy.

    And yes, I used Microsoft Word.

    we used our printer for the inner and the outer envelopes.  they came out really nice... you have to have a printer that you can feed the envelope in through the back so the envelope goes straight in. 
    (instead of curving around the mechanism inside..bc the envelope gets trapped...lol)
    the thickness of the envelope was tricky at times and thank goodness we had extra bc sometimes the ink went funny and printer lines on the envelope.
    we had lined envelopes...maybe thats why it was an issue.

    anyway.. so that or clear labels.

    ggrrrr, printing my own now.  the HP officejet is experiencing fatigue.  first evvelope comes out fine.  after that ink fades to blue and then light blue, so i can only do 3 envelopes. then have to shut if off and take a 2 hour break before i can get it to print black again.  only experiencing this problem with the envelopes. with regular paper it's fine :(

    called 4 printers in the area. 4 were not willing to address the envelopes.  one is charging $2/each. no thanks.
