    No, but only because zazzle’s stamps are a lot more expensive than the one from USPS. I don’t really see the point in paying more for postage – something that people may notice if it’s personalized, but won’t think twice about it if it’s not. (Just my personal opinion!)

    @WineAndCupcakes:  Yes I have to agree, it seems like a big expense when most people probably won’t notice (sorry, just my opinion)

    I have to agree with PP as well.  its a lot of expense for something thats cool, but not really missed if not there.

    If they were the cost of a normal stamp, then yeah go for it, there are some cute designs there.  But not really worth the extra expense.

    Here, Australia Posts offers stamps that you can put a photo of yourself on, again cool, but not worth the cost to my already stretched budget.

    @WineAndCupcakes:  yup, agreed. Seems like a wasted expense to me, but if you love them, then use them

    We got our postage from zazzle and I’m just gonna say it was not worth it. We’re totally happy with the stamps we received but it was just an unnecessary expense. We could’ve saved a lot of money by just going through USPS and for a 250/person wedding, each extra cost adds up quick. It seemed like a big deal at the time to have the perfect stamps, but now I’m thinking to myself…who cares?! I’m pretty sure I have never noticed the stamp on invites I’ve received and it definitely wasn’t soooo cool that it left an impression. 

    But to answer your question, I would (and I am) using stamps with the barcode….it doesn’t really stand out.

    I have to agree with the PP, save yourself some money and just go with USPS ones.  No one is going to even look or really even care if you have wedding stamps on a piece of paper that is going to get throwed away anyway.

    if you are using 20 invites 20 rsvps i would say use that one. but for bigger wedding guests list just use the post office ones… for every invite you need at least 2(invite envelope/rsvp envelope) can your budget accomdate the extra $$?  as much as i hate the forver wedding white roses stamp i think i will be using those .my invites not heavy so i do like the weddingcake stamp the post office offers i just wont use it cuz of the extra 20 cents per stamp cost… i wont use the 44 cent stamp -wedding bands because there is no cute 1cent stamp to cordinate with it..

     

    might just use these ones:Love Ribbons (Forever)

    I used custom Zazzle stamps. I really liked them and thought they were super cute on the invites, save the dates, and RSVP envelopes. However, I don’t think they are necessary and I’m not really sure how many people actually noticed the stamps.

    So I think they are a cute/nice touch but they will mostly be for you and your super detail oriented guests.
