With the right tools, handcrafting invite envelopes has never been easier

Hand lettering isn’t just for the artistically gifted anymore thanks to The Lettermate, a translucent addressing stencil. Complete with a ruler edge, four horizontal die cut windows and halfway point indicators, your trusty guide will ensure aligned and straight writing. This handy 4-inch-by- 5-inch plastic tool works with virtually any envelope, from square shape to the long rectangular #10 size. Spice up invite and thankyou notes, or use it to make name tags and place settings. There’s minimal room for error, but loads of space for creativity.
