Return addressing is available for save the dates, invitations and thank you cards. Your name and return address will be printed in black ink on the back flap of the envelopes, using fonts that match your chosen design.

For response envelopes, your name and address will be printed on the front of the envelope so your guests can easily return their response cards. Printing is done in black ink using fonts that match your chosen design.

Guest addressing is available for save the dates, invitations and thank you cards. Your guest names and addresses will be printed in black ink on the front of the envelopes, using fonts that match your chosen design.

Ordering Instructions

Select your printing options on the pricing menu during the personalization step. For guest addressing and name printing, your spreadsheet can be uploaded at the time of ordering, or you can email it to us later.

A correctly formatted spreadsheet is required before we can begin designing your envelopes. See the formatting instructions below for details. Incorrectly formatted spreadsheets will be sent back for correction.

We only import one spreadsheet per order. If you have more than 10 address changes after initial proof design, a $25 spreadsheet re-import fee will be charged, so please check your addresses carefully before submission.

Start with a clean spreadsheet. Do not add tabs, extra spaces, or carriage returns within cells.

  • Create the following columns: Name, Address, City, State, Zip and optionally Country.
  • Enter your guest information exactly as you would like it to appear on your envelopes.
  • For names or addresses that you would like to have on a second line, use a semi-colon ( ; ) to denote the line break.
