Writing on Black Envelopes
Posted: Jun 17, 2010 2:27 PM

I ordered black envelopes for our wedding to go with our wedding invites. After ordering them I realized I need to figure out how to write on them. What would you use to address black envelopes?
Thanks in advance.

Dear TS,

You may have to put white stickers on the envelopes, then write on the stickers.

My best suggestion would be to take them to the post office, and ask for advice. You may have a serious problem with non-delivery if they cannot be read by the automatic sorting machines.

You can use silver or gold metalic pens on black envelopes. It should look really pretty.
Go to a good art supply store and you should be able to find them easily.

I too had planned to use black envelopes for my wedding invites. I was actually told by our post office that I couldn't use the black envelopes. So I ordered pink envelopes in one size bigger and wrote the names of the invited guests in a silver pen on the black envelope and the address on the pink. Good luck!
