hi!  I am stamping my own cocktail napkins too, I am using the Stayz On Ink and so far so good, I found the ink at Michaels and AC Moore but I am sure you could find it easily online .  I ordered a custom stamp on Etsy with our initials and the wedding date.  Unfortunately I had to cut the date part off the stamp because it was so small and it seemed that the ink bled a little on the napkins right after I stamped them and it just got too blurry, but everything was fine once the ink dried.  We have been using the napkins that got too blurry because I don’t want to use them at the reception and the ink has been holding fast even when wet.

hope this helps!

Great advice – I was thinking of doing this but hadn’t tried yet. Was definitely worried about the ink running, but if yours have stood up to the “test run” I guess it’ll work!

Buy Staz-on from overstock.com, you’ll pay less shipping!

As for custom made stamps, I found cheaper people off etsy. I’m an etsy vendor myself and totally for supporting the community, but with the different stamps I needed, it was cheaper to go to one of the websites that come up when you put in “custom rubber stamps” on google, and I couldn’t justify the extra cost.

Try ebay as well. Good luck!

I’d check out Gordan Food Services for napkins. They are a commercial retailer for all things restaurant and catering. However, you DON’T need a membership to shop there. We get a lot of party supplies there for football and BBQs, but we are also getting a lot of our candy buffet goodies there. Cocktail napkins have got to be there, but I’m not sure what they have in terms of color. Usually they’ve got black, white, red, blue. Really basic. But you can always get white and use colored stamps.

 

(edit – Ah, I missed that you are abroad. I don’t know if you can order through GFS.com, but I would look for catering companies online, not wedding vendors. When planning online, I think it’s best to look like to are planning a big BBQ and not a wedding.)
