I want to order a custom address stamp (for Christmas invites, but also for wedding invites) so I’d like to try and match what I think the invites will look like.
I like the look of At Mahogany–it looks a lot like Feel Script (just for our names) but I’m a little stuck on what to pair with it. I’m looking at Copperplate (which is all caps) and Centabel Book (which isn’t) both of which have been mentioned in other posts on the boards.
I’m not good at fonts at all though, so I’d love some advice. Are those good choices? Which ones?
I am going to address my envelopes myself (i don’t know fonts but I can do pretty decent hand-lettering), and the name will be a script and the rest of the address most likely in all caps if that makes a difference.

Anyone? I want to order a stamp but I don’t know what I’m doing!

@MaryRachel: look at the sticky in the paper forum (the posts at the top shaded in green) entitled ‘fonts, fonts, and more fonts’ – there’s some good info there about pairing fonts together for invitations, etc.
I think your idea of having the names in fancier font and the address (the important part for the postal service) in a more simple easy to read font is good.

I got an embosser rather than a stamp, which limited the choices but I think the emobssed look is so cool.
Also, and this is my personal preference, I really like the return address on the back envelope flap rather than the front upper left, in which case, it doesn’t matter if the fonts “match.”

Thanks ladies! I thought I had a good pick, but now I’m not so sure. I’ll read through all the fonts posts and see what else I can learn.
