I'm always a bit nervous when I send off my envelopes to be subjected to the postal service and their automated system. I always recommend getting envelopes with hand calligraphy canceled by hand-- hopefully avoiding unsightly meter marks or stickers. This particular envelope came back to me after being hand-canceled-- which means that A. my friend is awesome and let me do her wedding invite calligraphy + envelopes, B. amazing NOLA wedding to look forward to, C. this envelope survived the USPS in amazing shape! I've seriously never seen such a pristine envelope in my mailbox. More on this invite suite later!
