I was going to use canvas tote bags for my oot bags. I wanted to stamp the word welcome using the same font we are using on everything onto the bag. Do you think that it would limit the usability of the bag? Should I go with something like a hydrangea stamp instead?

Although the "welcome" is very cute & makes sense as a welcome bag, as a guest I would REALLY appreciate a canvas tote that doesn’t say welcome. If it said welcome, I’d probably use it again. But if it only has the stamp, I’d probably use it a lot more, and I’d be more appreciative of it.
My reco would be to only use the hydrangea stamp. Perhaps you could also print little "Welcome" tags (either a simple "Welcome" or something longer, like "Welcome to our wedding. Love, x & y") and tie them to the bag handles with a pretty ribbon.

My vote is the floral stamp….I think that would be extremely lovely and chic. On top of being reuseable!
I’m also utilizing the canvas totes for Out of Town bags. The main deciding factor in this was their reusibility. So I’m tying a "Welcome" card on the handle, so it hangs on the outside of the bag. Inside the card, it will personally welcome them to the hotel, and thank them for choosing to share the weekend with us. I felt that this was more personal, and still allows them to re-use the tote.
Hope that helps!!

I said both, simply because people will use the bag or they won’t no matter what it says. The welcome stamp idea is really cute, and by using it, people will know exactly what your sentiments were when you created the bags.

I think making it a little more generic would mean that people were more likely to use it again.
