    I sent my invites out last week. They were really simple flip flop invites that I printed myself. Not too cute, that's why I didn't post a pic.

    Well, one got returned yesterday. I was kind of excited because I only ended up with 1 extra...now I would have 2. So I open it, and the ink on the wording totally rubbed against the envelope and made huge black rub marks down the entire invite. It looked like total crap!!!!!! I am so sad. I'm hoping that just this one has been through the ringer with trying to find the addressee and having to be sent back to me. MAYBE not all of them turned out so crappy looking.

      Lisa, was it the ink from your printing, or the ink from someone's RSVP? Is there someone close to you that you can check with to see if their's was received the same way?

        I got an invite with that issue as well. That's why they recommend putting a piece of tissue paper in your envelope between the wording and the other cards.

            I'm sorry Lisa, I'm kind of worried about the same thing. I was actually just thinking about my invites sitting in their box and I'm hoping that the ink isn't rubbing on the back of each invite, I'm going to be so mad if they did!

              That sucks!! I'd be so frustrated. . .now you've got me all paranoid for when I print Monica's shower invites and stuff!! ;-)

              Did you find out from anyone else if theirs got smudged too? It could have just been a couple of them that weren't quite dry yet. . .

                  I just talked to my mom and she says hers looks perfect. I was thinking of doing the tissue, but decided against it since this is where I was cutting cost. Maybe this particular got handled too much. Let's hope!
