Invitation Envelopes - labels, tacky?

Trying to keep this wedding within budget as best as possible. With that said, working on the invitations and i love DIY. The inexpensive route with Staples doesn't allow for pre printed envelopes. Is it bad forum to print addresses on clear labels from Staples or pretty ones from Etsy? Before I go ahead and submit Order Smiley tongue

    Thanks Ladies. You are all right. The envelopes are just going to end up in the garbage anyway. Definitely going with labels to keep cost down. 馃槉馃憤馃徏

    I don鈥檛 think there鈥檚 anything wrong with labels. Like someone else already said, the envelope ends up in the garbage in the end. It鈥檚 what鈥檚 on the inside that counts馃榾

    I got clear labels from Staples for my envelops. I didn't do anything fancy since envelopes get ripped and in the trash, plus people forget what the envelope looks like it's what's inside that counts. But I'm simple like that

    This is an opened sample one I had so it looks messy but I also got labels to seal it that match! 鈽猴笍

    It was super easy and inexpensive! And I thought it looked really pretty!
    I had wrote out all my save the dates and it took forever and it was messy which is why I decided to go this route with my invitations!

    I did similar to Amanda, but went with brand name (Avery) and they have templates on their website you can use. Its very possible the Avery templates would work with off brands too (I have bought Amazon brand stickers and used Avery template. The packaging will tell you what the comparable code is)

    The envelope will likely get thrown out anyways so doesn't really matter. Save where you can!!

    I bought labels from dollarama and used them on Word. If you have word on your computer, there's a template! And printed them at home!
