I’m just bumping this. I’ve been thinking of using a personalized stamp from urban collective, the people who make the one in your image, but I’m also nervous about smudging. Their examples look so nice and neat.

I’m currently doing this for my save the dates, and may do it for my invitations if everything works out well! I’ve done a few tests runs with mine (we are making the stamp ourselves!) on normal paper, and yes it’s hard at first, but once you get the pressure down, it’s relatively easy. I’ll post back with more details after we finish them.

For my first marriage, I did a little stamp symbol on the top of all the invites and then embossed them with gold embossing powder. The good thing about that is that it gives a “melted” and raised look, so it doesn’t really matter if it stamps perfect or not.

This isn’t what you’re talking about I think…you’re talking about all the text etc.  But either way, we used a custom stamp on all our invites…we haven’t sent them yet.

It was a pain in the butt and I couldn’t get them straight…Fiance had to design some contraption to get them placed right and we also embossed so they looked a bit better.  I also had a glitter embossing ink pen where I could fill in any of the gaps.
