    I only have 22 invitations so doing it by hand isn't too big of a deal.
    I have very nice handwriting but I am so worried about messing up or going too far over to the right.

    Any tips on how you made sure they came out right? I did get a few extras just in case!

      I am too OCD to address things by hand so I downloaded a a script font from dafont.com and ran the envelopes through my printer. I actually had several people ask me who nad addressed my invites. I laughed because I thought they were kidding but they seriously thought the addresses were hand written - lol!

      Sorry this doesn't help you, but good luck with the invites!!

        I wouldn't trust myself to do them by hand, but I guess if I did I would have the correct spelling/names, etc right beside so I'm just copying exactly.

          Good for you for being confident to do them yourself! I would put a dot at the very center of the envelope by using a ruler and then you can either start from the middle and work out each side or you can just estimate it from there. You could put a few points if you really wanted. Good luck!

            I got a calligrapher from etsy as I was too nervous...she was awesome and not that expensive.

              I have pretty decent hand writing and i had 50 invites, wrote them all my hand. I quess I am either tacky or crazy lol.... I just could not be bothered with try to set the printer up to print them properly. Oh so i guess I am actually "LAZY". lol

                I hand did all our invites (~ 75 of 'em) I used a ruler and my hand writing has been compared to that of a computer.. haha I have a bit of OCD I think.
