How rude is it really
to use a printer and a nice calligraphy or script font to print addresses on wedding invitation envelopes?

I know that traditional etiquette says that you should always hand-write the addresses.
However, after writing out about half of the addresses by hand, I can't help but think that they look like absolute crap. I don't have terrible handwriting, but it looks really goofy and uneven on the envelopes.
As an experiment, I printed out a couple of sample envelopes using an elegant script font, and they look gorgeous. I want to marry the frigging envelopes, they look that good.
Also, people send their invitations to calligraphers all the time. So is printing out the addresses from my computer really that much more impersonal?
I'm not trying to be impersonal or lazy. I just want them to look good! Am I going to go to etiquette hell if I redo the envelopes from my computer? Do normal people even care?
