Faux Calligraphy

Great Invitation Idea from Design Sponge (thank you to reader Emily) for getting a calligraphy look without paying someone else to do it!: "Jennifer chose her favorite fancy font on her computer and printed each address on the envelope in a slightly darker ink color so it was faint enough to see after printing. Then jennifer went back over the lettering with a white paint pen, covering up the printed portion and giving it a more hand-written look. The result is a combination of the neatness and elegance you’d expect with a printed address and the handmade qualities that come from putting actual pen to paper." Read the full steps here.
