Well, I used the Superhero stamp collection for my Save-The-Date Cards, so I am probably not much help to you.

But, our actual invites will be a tiny bit more serious, and I was thinking of using the Tiffany image or the Celebrate! image…

I ordered a bunch of stamps off of ebay.  I got an assortment of Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, and other Jazz artists (fits with our party).  I’m sure you could find plenty more that you like for close to the post card rate.  Remember, it’s less than a first class stamp.

I did the beautiful blooms one (see Pengwen’s post above) and they looked beautiful on the envelopes.

We used the "pollination" stamps on our STD and they were really beautiful.  I think the heart is sort of tedious, and something "natural" was more up our alley anyways.  The "pollination" ones come apart into 4 different ones that each feature a different bug/bird, and I had fun matching up the bats/hummingbirds/bees with specific people! 🙂

Most of the stamps that are mentioned are great for STD or smaller cards/postcards.  However, once you get around to wedding invites, your options become much more limited.  Many wedding invites requre 2 oz. or 58 cent stamps.  The pink wedding stamps are your only 58 cent option.  However*, you could always pick a stamp you like in the first class range and then tack on smaller denomination stamps in colors/designs you like until you get up to 58 cents.  There have been a few posts on using alternate postage/antique postage for invites.  Try matching your color scheme or theme of your wedding. I hate the dumb pink wedding hearts, but we ordered them to save ourselves the hassle.  What I didn’t think about was how the light pink stamps would look against the light blue invite pockets that showed through our clear vellum envelopes.  It looked like we were inviting everyone to a baby shower!

i’ve used zazzle! it turned out pretty well. there have been a number of board posts on it, so i would do a quick weddingbee search. i think in general, most people are pleased. the only thing i would tell you is to use the small size stamp (the big ones are really big!).

For those using the USPS site – it seems to work much better in IE than it does in Firefox.  That might help you out 🙂
