I did a series of envelopes for a bride's Save The Date recently. We decided to make this round a more cost efficient enterprise. So I did the first names of the addresses and she's going to do the remaining address lines beneath. These turned out beautifully. I charge $3.40 per outer envelope, and this version is only $1.00.
What you get is the best of both worlds with this option. History and grace kissed with contemporary minimalism.
