The Cussedness of Everyday Things

If I were designing envelopes, and I’d put a note on the front saying “To:” with a space for someone to add the address, I’d make the envelope out of some kind of matte paper or cardboard, so people could write on it. I wouldn’t coat it with some sort of plastic coating that looked matte, but actually repelled ink, because then the address would smear.
