@FutureMrsWeston:  Love them!  So pretty!  And you are a smart/lucky lady – I had to use those awful Hawaiian shirt stamps *shudder*  But I agree – the result is much less messy than people often envision – and I’ve seen some of our cards that traveled across 4+ states!

@FutureMrsWeston:  if you’re concerned that it might look like it went through the ringer, consider UV coating. Also, you mailed it locally to yourself. My guess is a lot of the invitations will have a longer journey than that. We would UV coat all the postcard-shaped mailers at my old company.. otherwise, they’d be covered in black marks from the sorting process.

Very cute STDs!!!

Ugh, I can’t believe the new postcard stamps come out on the 15th!  I just mailed my invitations and bought forever stamps for my RSVP postcards because I hate that aloha one.

Back to your post…I’m happy that you had a good experience with Catprint.  I’ve used them for everything and have been very happy.  I mailed myself the proof, too 🙂

I bought vintage stamps instead of using those dumb aloha stamps!

@FutureMrsWeston:  I don’t mind the Aloha stamps. Lol. I just thought they added something kind of goofy to the cards. 😀

Neat idea, I love your final designs! Smart to send a trial invitation to yourself, too.

Just a quick note… if you round the corners, they technically don’t qualify for first class post card rate, so get the wrong postal employee, one of three things can happen. If they see a stack, they can return them all to you to add postage, if in a really bad mood, they can cancel the stamps, and require the correct postage (first class letter) or they can deliver them to your guests postage due Undecided


Also the clear zone is the bottom 5/8″ for the barcode. You may also want to note that the postcard rate is only good for up to 14pt thickness, and from 3.5″ x 5″ up to 4.25″ x 6″
