Top Ten Reasons for Lettering Envelopes: There is no need to decide what to write (names and addresses are given). Nobody will be offended by choice of words. Choosing the right paper isn’t a problem – commercial envelopes are just fine. Only knowing one letter style is not a problem. It provides a practical place to try out new “hands”. Results can quickly get out of view – pop them in the mail. …for 7, 8, 9, 10 and MORE join in for Carol DuBosch’s presentation on “Envelope Art”.
