I was browsing Etsy and came across a listing for heaps of USED vintage stamps that matched my color and theme perfectly. I already also got enough regular postage stamps to cover the cost to mail the invites, but I love the look of multiple vintage stamps.
My question is: Can I glue these used stamps on the envelope around the real postage just for looks? I know that they will obviously not count toward the postage cost, but I would just do it for visual effect. I didn’t know if that would mess it up too much at the post office. I was already planning on requesting them to be hand cancelled, though. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of this?

Hm. I feel like it might look a bit odd to have regular stamps and then random vintage stamps next to them… but if you can visualize it and think it’ll work, then go for it. The post office shouldn’t care what else is on there as long as you have the proer postage.

The stamps I got are vintage-style, so I think it’ll look cohesive. These are the stamps from the post office I got:
The used ones I found are a similar feel.
Thanks for the input!

I would definitely check with the post office about that. You wouldn’t want them returned to you after you spent all of that time to affix the stamps and address them.
I personally bought one set of vintage stamps for my photographer to take photos of my wedding invitations.

I really wanted to do this, but was going to use them for actual postage. I think it would be a little confusing to add them on when you don’t need them. I got those same seed packet stamps. 😀

Yeah, I found some pretty inexpensive unused vintage stamps that I might get to achieve the look even if I don’t need the extra several cents of postage. Thanks for all of your input guys!
