Desperately seeking personalized beverage napkins that won’t break my bank. Getting overwhelmed at all the sites where you have to wade through cheap favors and extraneous wedding gear no one needs, etc.
I’ve check party city, and their personalization options seem rather limited.

We bought a personalized stamp and made our own. Plus you could use the stamp for other things as well.

@Angelique02: For our napkins I bought a stamp at the local craft store, but I did look into personalized stamps for the napkins. Look online. There are tons of sites that won’t neccessarily come across as being great for wedding things.

I bought ones from the knot’s wedding shop and they were on sale for $16.99 I believe and totally worth every penny! They are awesome! Shipping is terrible there though – took me a month to receive my package and then part of the order is wrong. Oriental trading has them as well. Good luck!

I also did some with a stamp and loved them!

TO THE GIRLS USING A STAMP: did it look ok? does anyone have any examples. I already purchased our monogram stamp for popcorn bags and hotel bags. I never thought about using them for the napkins too!

They will look alright if you are ok that they won’t look embossed (raised) like the professional napkins. I did some and they are good. We got bird, feather, and love “definition” stamps from a craft store. The real trick is finding the right ink pad. The first we got made very clear stamps at first but then they started to bleed and become less distinct. Then we got a pigment based pad and it looks a tad less dark/crisp but doesn’t start to look all bleedy. Although, the second one has a greater propensity to smear a bit when water gets on it (which kinda sucks when you are using them for beverage napkins). I’d say buy a few pads and play around. You can always return the rejects.
PS – In hind sight (I was married a few weekends ago) the napkins were not something people cared about. Nobody mentioned them and if I could turn back time and invest time and money in more important wedding crafts, I absolutely would have. So if you don’t get them to work out alright with minimal effort, don’t let it hurt your feelings. As brides, we get ourselves so worked up over these little things. I want to save you some drama. =)

I stamped these napkins myself….planning to use them at our reception and the cocktail party at our house before the wedding. I got the napkins at the dollar store and I’m really happy with how they came out! These were my first attempt and I’ve gotten the hang of stamping consistently better now….

I bought mine at the Wedding Channel store during a sale for $12 for 100 napkins. Not too bad…
