    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.
            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.
