I might be kind of weird, but I love paper and mail. I know most people won’t notice, but I really wanted to have my invites hand canceled, but I had heard that sometimes it is hard to do. I think you have to talk to the right person. The person I went to in line told me it wasn’t possible, but the super nice lady next to her sent me off in the right direction where they let me do it myself.
It was so fun! Here is Portland’s “City of Roses” stamp (The Mt. Hood one was even more awesome, but I would have had to drive to Parkdale and I wanted them sent):
Anyone else want to share theirs?

@wondermiche: No pictures to share, but that is seriously so pretty! I wish my city had that!

I’m going to try my hardest to hand cancel my invites. I used the same stamp as you and when I sent a trial invitation through the mail the stamps got completely covered with a blob of black ink. Gross. Hopefully they’ll at least let me stamp them myself.

@FutureMrsWeston: I ended up going through “Bulk Mailing Requirements,” so if they tell you no at the counter, try a different department. I know in Portland only the downtown PO does it, so try going to the biggest one in your city! Good luck! Show us pics =)
