I have a self inking address stamp and I love it. I use it mostly when sending out christmas cards or “large” quantities of letters. Plus I love how it looks. I have horrible handwritting…
Now that I am married I am thinking about getting a new one, just curious on how other people lable their address with both partners. Would it be cheesey or bad taste if I used the address stamp with both of our names to send a personal letter just from me, or a letter to a company/business?
I know I’ll get plenty of the “do what you want” responses, so please just tell me what YOU do when addressing an envelope or what you think looks nice.

The stamp we bought is:
JANE + JOHN
We don’t ever send letters unless to family though, so we went with the most informal way, as that’s the type of the letters we send.

Why not just have the address on the stamp and you can write in the name above, that way it works for every combination in your household?
When I’m addressing an envelope from us both I put MyLast/HisLast. When it’s just from me, I put MyLast. I think last name only looks tidy for return address but I also only put street number, streetname, and zip code, ie. Doe | 123 Main St. | 10002

Uhhh I just have a “The Smiths” and our address on my custom stamp – I use it for everything?

We have a stamp with My First Name + His First Name and our address, since I didn’t change my last name. Pretty much the only time I use it is when I send out our holiday cards every year. Or if we send a birthday card to someone from both of us – that kind of thing. Most of the outgoing mail that we send is from one or the other of us, not both.

We have an address stamp without any first names on it. We only use it for personal letters or cards and pretty much everything we send is from both of us, but adding our first names would have been a squeeze.

We got our stamp from our engagement originally and I love it! We have my name + his name. No last name since we had it for the shower and we weren’t married yet.
I barely glance at who letters are from someone I doubt it makes that much of a difference, no one receiving the letters are going to care.
