      I ended up drawing pencil lines on the envelopes and erasing them after I wrote them out. I think they came out fine. I can't worry about things like that. I'm just happy their finished!

          We did all 134 of ours ourselves we had planed to run them thought the printer but it didn't like our envelopes. We bought calligraphy pens from paper source, They make certain parts of the line thicker than the others depending on how you write so it loos like calligraphy and we just wrote carefully. The all turned out pretty nicely there was one or two I didn't like but it was just me being ocd,

            I did ours myself. Years ago I bought calligraphy sets and learned how to do it fairly well and I only had like 40 to send out so it wasn't bad.
            Even if you don't really know how to do calligraphy, just writing with calligraphy (fine-tip) markers or pens dresses up your own handwriting b/c of the way the tip is slanted (like Jt mentioned). I'd recommend practicing a little, but it's really not hard.

              I just addressed 60 save the date envelopes myself. Fun stuff. I just got a really nice black pen/marker thing and went to town. I have neat writing and I did a practice one first and figured out how to line stuff up so it's symmetrical. I think they look pretty good, but for some reason I am not too concerned with this stuff. Most people just throw the envelope out anyway.

                But now that I think about it for formal invites I may run them through a printer. Save the dates are a little less formal.

                  Like you, I am way too OCD to address envelopes! Thanks you so much for this recommendation and the website is awesome for fonts. I found exactly what I was looking for.
