Put A Stamp On It

{Don't forget to enter the giveaway for 2 FREE TICKETS

A recent client of mine was telling me about these fabulous custom Save The Date stamps that he purchased online, so I had to check them out for myself! I found several different websites that offered custom stamps in hundreds of designs, and not just for Save The Date cards. They do cost a bit more than just buying the regular stamps at the post office, but I think it's worth the extra cost just to add that little personal touch to the package. Everyone loves to receive beautiful things in the mail and custom postage can make your envelope shine against regular, old boring mail.

Another great idea that is growing in popularity is using vintage stamps to add some interest to your invitation packaging. You will need to use several to make up the correct postage amount, but it's fun to mix and match different designs to create a totally unique look to each envelope. Just make sure that you take your invitation to the post office before adding the postage to have them weigh it so you know exactly how much you need. (I would recommend this whether you are doing vintage postage or not.) And if you can find the stamps at face value then it won't cost any more than buying the current stamps!

Check out local antique and coin and stamp stores or score some on ebay or Stamp Wants online. (Just make sure they are unused!)
