Not that many people notice stamps, and the envelope gets thrown away most of the time.  Plus you can use forever stamps… forever.  🙂  I still have some rose stamps from our wedding almost 2 years ago.

Custom stamps sound fun, but unless you are sending out your cards/using the stamp before the increase you most likely will need to purchase extra stamps to cover the increased cost. This would mean a fun custom stamp set beside a boring old plain stamp. (At least this is how it was explained to me, so we decided it wasn’t worth stocking up on the pre-increase stamps). 

I would check with a post office before ordering custom stamps!

@almostmrsj:  I am with you here.  I don’t think I would ever notice a stamp on anything.

@maybride53114:  Option B. That’s exactly what I did, and no one noticed. If they did, they didn’t make any comments.

I wouldn’t risk it, your guests probably won’t send them back before the increase so either they’ll have to add postage or you’ll be stuck with those ugly penny stamps! lol Go with the forever stamps!

@maybride53114:  I bought forever stamps for ours: the white rose ones for invites and the hearts on the envelope ones for the rsvps 🙂

I put disney stamps on mine only because they were cute, not because I expected them to be seen. Envelopes have about a 10 second lifespan in this house — I don’t care what the stamp looks like, and I don’t notice.
