Email There is one fundamental truth about learning calligraphy. That truth is this: The first thing to consider is addressing envelopes will take you longer than you think.
Sometimes you write names using your default spelling, without thinking about it. This warrants an entire envelope re-do. Sometimes your spacing is just off, and you need to re-do.

If you order online, you can generally see what poundage of paper envelope are made from; you want envelopes that are at least 70 lb. Royal Sundance envelopes take any ink — or even watercolor — very well! You very well may not have a choice in what you are writing on, and perhaps the envelopes you have been presented with are low-quality and make your ink bleed.
Or, maybe the envelopes are fibrous and caught on your nib.
For the low-quality envelopes, I needed to use black ink. The India ink I was planning on using bled when paired with these envelopes, so I added a relatively large amount of gum arabic to thicken the ink. Eventually, the ink thickened up and did not run anymore when put to the paper. If you run into a similar situation, add gum arabic a little bit at a time to the ink you are planning on using.

Be sure and make a line at the bottom so you know where to line up your envelopes!
Note that if you plan on writing addresses with apartment numbers on four lines, your life will be easier if you make a separate template just for that type of address.
Centering Centering can be a bit of a crapshoot at times, but you can get a pretty good guess as far as where an address line will begin and end by counting the letters on your draft envelope. I can then draw faint guidelines to let me know exactly where to start and end that particular address line.Craft a professional recommendation letter (or reference letter) in minutes using our free downloadable templates and samples.

HigherEd Admin April 6, at pm. No ones cares! Seriously. No one cares. +1. The only thing I roll my eyes at is when I receive a cover letter that uses a standard font throughout, but then uses a cursive font for the signature, as if you are fooling me into thinking that’s your real signature.
