I was getting ready stamp and emboss our invitations, when my FI mentioned that the invitations would also look nice without the stamp. Now I’m torn, I think that the blue stamp ties the set together, BUT I also like look of invitation without the stamp. What do you think, do I stamp them or not?

I like them much better with the stamp, they look quite plain without it.

I didn’t vote because I like both very much…I don’t find them plain at all. I’m very much a “classic”, “clean” invite fan.
I think if you sent them as is, they would be GORGEOUS. I really like the fonts.
That said, I do like how the stamp ties everything together. It looks great near the blue response envelope and band. If you have time, I’d say do the stamp.

Thanks everyone for the input.
I think I am going to go with the Stamp. I love your screen name musthavedietcoke, because I am also addicted to the stuff. I hated Diet Coke before grad school and but know I love the stuff.

Stamp definitely….I also did my response card very similar to yours. 🙂

I love the stamp! Was FI trying to save you work?

Definitely the stamp. I think it ties in nicely with the belly band and envelope.

I like the stamp since it brings in the blue color to that piece.
However, I may warn you – stamping is tough on the nerves! I had one of those hand-calligraphy return address stamps, and I used them to stamp our invite envelope. I would mess up on about 15% of them (like not inking enough, smudge, shadowy if the stamp moved, etc). and of the rest, there was only a strong impression on about 30% of them (again, not inking enough).
If you feel confident in your stamping skills, I say do it. BUT, if you don’t know what your stamping skills will be like, I say to not try it…

I like the stamp too. I think that without it, the invitation looks a bit off-centered.

I really like the stamp, it makes them look a little more fancy and tied togather!

The blue stamp really makes it pop! 🙂
