    I like them much better with the stamp, they look quite plain without it.

    I didn’t vote because I like both very much…I don’t find them plain at all. I’m very much a “classic”, “clean” invite fan.

    I think if you sent them as is, they would be GORGEOUS. I really like the fonts.

    That said, I do like how the stamp ties everything together. It looks great near the blue response envelope and band. If you have time, I’d say do the stamp.

    Definitely the stamp. I think it ties in nicely with the belly band and envelope.

    I like the stamp since it brings in the blue color to that piece. 

    However, I may warn you – stamping is tough on the nerves! I had one of those hand-calligraphy return address stamps, and I used them to stamp our invite envelope. I would mess up on about 15% of them (like not inking enough, smudge, shadowy if the stamp moved, etc). and of the rest, there was only a strong impression on about 30% of them (again, not inking enough).

    If you feel confident in your stamping skills, I say do it. BUT, if you don’t know what your stamping skills will be like, I say to not try it…

    I like the stamp too.  I think that without it, the invitation looks a bit off-centered.

    I really like the stamp, it makes them look a little more fancy and tied togather!

    The blue stamp really makes it pop! 🙂
