I've been debating whether or not to get white or clear address labels for our invitations. Our envelopes are white, so I didn't know if it would matter. Also, I plan on printing the writting in a color (not sure which one yet) and was wondering if you can print color on the clear address labels. Are they the same material as the white ones or do you think they will smear?

 

If anyone has any experiences with this, I would appreciate any help! Thanks so much!! :)

 

BTW, my mom and I are printing/putting our invitations together this weekend. I'll take pics and post when I'm done! Wooo Hoo!

Have you thought about going with a colored return address label? I used a silver one that I thought looked very nice.

 

As for the clear labels, yes, you can print color on them. I did that for the address labels for my save-the-dates though I do have to admit that I didn't really like the look of it too much since they were on colored envelopes. Some looked better than others.

I used clear address labels and my inkjet printer printed on them just fine. I used black ink since my envelopes were metallic pink. I think color would be fine too. Just make sure you buy the correct kind of address lables for your printer because they are different for inkjet and laserjet.

hey Lisa,

 

i just purchased some clear labels from officemax on Sunday-- and it was a little tricky.

the packages are labeled for "laser printer" or "inkjet" but it's in a spot that isn't very obvious. (at least not to me... haha!) with avery brand labels, it was toward the bottom right corner. and i thought they were a little pricey ($12.50 for 300 labels)

 

i printed black ink on clear labels with my junk $50 printer and they turned out GREAT. i think printing with color ink would be the same.

 

my only advice to you would be:

 

if you are printing the addresses of your guests, go for it & print them yourself.

BUT

if you are printing a return address label, purchase them through vista print. you can sometimes get 140 for only the cost of shipping & they can be in full color. i don't know if you can get clear labels from VP, but there are websites where you can find a great price. we used current & got about 300 clear labels with palm trees & cutesy font for about $10, which is cheaper than the print-them-yourself labels.

 

have fun!

Thanks! We already have return address labels from Vistaprint. Still can't believe how much stuff that website has.

 

Anyway, I'm going shopping today for my stuff - wish me luck!

When sending out our STD's I used pink and yellow envelops from Staples and we had ordered return address labels from Vista print that were yellow and blue, and the yellow on pink looked amazing, I would have never thought how they made the envelop look so great. The yellow on yellow also worked well, but the two different colors really was better, so I would suggest experimenting with two colors as it makes it look more interesting.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
