stamp it



So very recently I've been starting to think about our wedding invitations and all that surround it.  I've been gathering inspiration, fonts, graphics and stamps.  I loved this post by 100 layer cake on vintage postage.  I was wondering how I could find old postage for our invites. although I'm not sure if that is the way we are going to go yet.  Then just this morning I stumbled upon this site, zazzle.com, that makes custom stamps!  they are affiliated with the United states postal service so they are all legit. 

I'm thinking that a stamp with our wedding logo might be perfect!

We used zazzle for our wedding invites. We used one of our engagement pics and turned it into a stamp and then also bought vintage looking stamps of Califonria and wine. Pretty cool!

i SO wanted to use vintage stamps for our invites but didn't leave myself enough time to collect :( there are a bunch of shops that sell unused vintage stamps, which i think is just the coolect touch to an envelope... good luck with the stationery - that's been my favorite part of the wedding planning thus far! xxo, Jane

Mo - you're stamps sound wonderful! I'm so glad I found this site!

Jane - I can imagine it could be a little stressful to try to gather the amount needed. maybe if you had a small wedding and didn't need to send out as many invites it would be less of a headace. but they are so beautiful and a great detail to the invites. and I'm sure your stationary was your favorite part! I can't wait to see everything all complete and put to use!

I think the stamps are a fantastic idea! They're one of those fun little touches that would make any recipient smile.

Such cool collectibles! I love the idea of custom stamps for a wedding. I know Etsy has some good options for vintage and custom numbers, though I'm sure you already knew that since you have your very own shop :)
