This might be a silly question, but does anyone know if there are any companies that will print addresses on navy envelopes? I’m really wanting navy envelopes but don’t want to handwrite on them myself.

Thanks, Alexandra. I might have missed it, but I can’t find any envelopes that are navy. I’ve sent them an email, though. As well a sent an email to paper source. I’ve also tried basicinvite.com but they don’t have navy envelopes and will only print text in black.
Check our cardsandpockets.com. That’s where we got our gold ones. I think for a fee they’ll address them for you. I used my cricut to address our envelopes, which was super helpful and amazing. Lol
You just need to find a company that will print in white ink. I know it was an option with our stationary place (local boutique) but was an extra 25c or so an envelope. We ended up using a calligrapher (styles rang $3 - $3.50/envelope) - she can use white ink as well. It's the best price I could find for calligraphy - let me know if you need her contact info!
Basicinvite.com prints on envelopes for free. Just a word of advice, make sure to get some extra blank ones. I had mine printed and then at least three people on my list moved 😂
I have a friend who's son and DIL used navy envelopes and nearly 1/2 their guests didn't receive them. They had to call everyone to make sure their invitations arrived. The mail sorters have a hard time reading dark envelopes with light writing. You'd be better off using white outer envelopes which is recommended by the USPS.
Our local Post Office wants us to hand cancel ours, so they don't go through the machine. I was actually surprised they brought it up, but extremely grateful. That's also an option. For my local post office, it's no extra charge.
Thank you! I'm trying to figure out what companies will do it. My mom said she will do the calligraphy, but she's already doing it for the placecards. Really appreciate the insight into pricing for someone else to do it!
"Square envelopes will cost more to mail than regular shaped envelopes. Ask for your invitations to be “hand cancelled” rather than machine cancelled. That means that a human being at the post office stamps your envelope over the postage, to ensure the stamp can't be used again."
