I knew about Zazzle and others but had no idea about the USPS having the rings or cake stamp. THANKS HIVE. I’ll gladly save the money and use those for our accouncements rather than doing custom.

I used these:

The ones I mailed oversees were just regular 1.00 stamps, nothing special.

NGolden1 – Good question above… The reason there are so many stamps is because they’re vintage, so it takes several of those lower denomination stamps to add up to the correct amount. We did them for ours, because I really wanted to have a vintage, old-school leaning wedding, so I thought it was a good way to add some personality. Here are some of the stamps we grouped together, there are way too many on this envelope, they only needed to add up to .61 for us, but you get the idea..

If you start early, you can get enough off ebay at about the same price that you would pay for regular stamps and if you aren’t inviting a million people, it won’t be too much trouble. We’re mailing out 170 invites, so somewhere around 155, I was very much tired of putting together groups, but I think they turned out well. I’ll post pictures of our full invites this weekend.

I mostly used the king and queen love stamps (our only needed one stamp), but threw in a few cowboy, kelp forest (a few of these are cute but some are ugly), simpsons, and adopt a pet stamps when they seemed fitting for some people, especially on the rsvps, so we would get a variety in our mailbox.

We used the wedding band stamps on our STDs, and the King and Queen of Hearts stamps (LOVE  these!) on our RSVPs!

I had originally wanted to use vintage stamps for the invites, but I never got around to ordering them, and need to get my invites out (and since they cost just over $2 to mail), we used these art deco $1 stamps, and the Navajo Squash Blossom necklace stamp. Our invitation border is art deco style, so I actually think the art deco stamps look really great with them!

Here’s what they look like:

When I took our invitation to the post office to get weighed the guy who worked there told us since they were a custom amount, just to go to stamps.com and upload any image we wanted. I have received so many compliments on our stamps and everyone keeps asking us how much they were. An 81 cent stamp is 81 cents and a 44 cent stamp is 44cents, no extra.

We put the picture of Fiance and I only the RSVP envelope and put the picture of my babies on the outside (we put a heart around the dogs pictures that said love)

Although, I am sure people would not find these stamps “cute”, my Fiance is a HUGE (understatement) fan of The Simpsons, and I want to incorporate him into the wedding..so these are our wedding invite and RSVP stamps…

Well geez, this is one of the problems of a long engagement, too much time to look at and think about stuff! Now I’ve been buying vintage stamps on eBay because I LOVE those vintage stamp invites!

FYI for people whose post offices are out of their first choice – you can order stamps online at the USPS website, shipping is only $1.

I was going to have hot pink and damask ones made through zazzle, but I decided to go with the regular forever postage because it was going to cost $100 more to use the zazzle ones.

I like my stamps but they are not overly creative or unique.  I got the “Adopt a shelter pet” for the RSVP cards and I’m not sure what I’ll get for the envelopes yet.  Either the King & Queen or some pretty flowers.  I don’t like the cake/rings ones.

I just found this one on the USPS website!  If my invitations go over the 44cent mark I’ll get these!
