Here's a quote from Martha Stewart Weddings:

Don't take our word for it, take the word of one of the premier wedding publications, the harbingers of class, the only wedding magazine I ever purchased…

If you're looking for a way around carpel tunnel that's still acceptable, try Postable.com's digital writing desk, which allows users to quickly draft dozens of "handwritten" cards. First you stock an online address book then choose your stationery. Designers include Rifle Paper Co., Felix Doolittle, among others. Next, you'll type up each note with one of the site's 10 handwriting fonts. The site will then print and mail your card for you. How real does the "handwritten" printed text look once it arrives in the recipient's mailbox? Even some of our editors had a hard time telling if Postable cards were printed or pen ink! – Martha Stewart Weddings

  1. The only thing about this that isn't 100% awesome is that there is no "nearly illegible chicken scratch" font, because my awful handwriting is legendary in our family and everyone would know instantly they were printed! πŸ˜€

      • Postable doesn't seem to provide a way for people to send back an RSVP card though. Its just the one invitation card?

  2. OHMYGOD POSTABLE, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE.

    I was fretting just the other day about getting people's addresses!

  3. Got very excited for a second, then I discovered they don't send card outside the US. Still love the address book feature though

    • Hey Rebecca, we send cards anywhere in the world. They're all mailed from the US but you can send em to internationally! Hope that helps πŸ™‚

  4. Oh man, I may end up doing this. I am looking for ways to make planning as easy as possible without breaking the bank (working around disability and depression).

    But just to clarify — they only charge you when you order the cards/stationery, right? It's not like a subscription service? This is probably obvious but I am pre-coffee and just want to make sure before I sign up. πŸ™‚
