    Not worth it! People don’t notice the envelope or the stamp for more than a moment and for you to put all that effort (not to mention money!) into it would be such a loss!

    I think they are super cute and a great idea I just know that we can’t afford them.  I think that the ones that the post office offers are cute anyway:

    (its two gold rings and ribbon… and they’re only 44 cents each!)

    I don’t think they’re worth the extra expense. Yes they’re cute and novel but from the ones I have seen in person, the post office puts their post mark stamp on top of them which defeats the entire purpose of the custom stamps.

    While they are a really nice touch, it is hard to justify that extra expense.  I like the ring stamps that Gator found from the post office.

    I ended up buying vintage postage that I got on ebay and didn’t pay much over face value.  I chose stamps that went with our theme and everyone commented on them.  I guess it would depend on how many you need to figure out if it’s worth it.  If you need a lot it might get really expensive but I think it’s a cool touch.

    i do think they are a nice touch and if you have extra $ to throw around i’d do it, but if not, spend it something else!! its true.. i doubt many people even notice it that much anyway.

    I have also thought about doing this, but alas, I don’t think it’s worth the extra money.  I could find better things to put that money toward.  But if it’s in your budget, it’s definitely a cute detail!

    Ha, at first I thought this was talking about rubber stamps. Honestly, I think it’s not worth the money. I’d rather spend that money on something else or just save it altogether. Those kind of details are nice, but also just get thrown away since they’re on envelopes!

    How much do your invites weigh?  Our invites need $1.39 in postage.  Which means we had to do $1 stamps and $0.44 stamps.  I think that’s something to take into consideration before you get personalized stamps.  Also I agree with some of the other girls that it’s kind of a waste of money.  Do you keep the outside envelope of every wedding invite you get?

    I just snooped around the USPS stamp collections and noticed that the 1995 Great Lakes Lighthouse edition has the lighthouse that is less than a half mile down the beach from where we are getting married… ahhh, why didn’t I buy a ton of stamps in 1995?  Oh yeah, i was 13… but those would have been perfect!  Anyone have 1995 Great Lake Stamps laying around?

    They’re cute.  But if you do it, do it on something your guests will keep.  One of my cousins did them for his RSVP envelopes.  So he & his bride got all their stamps back!  But we the guests didn’t get to keep them.

    We did them for my daughter’s wedding – it was one of their engagement photos – about 1/3 of the people I talked to even noticed the special stamps. So, while they were cute and made my daughter happy, it wasn’t worth it.

    i love them, but i pay attention to that sort of thing. i think most people wouldn’t even notice them… a personalized stamp or seal would probably be more worth you while.

    I agree its a bit expensive but we got the custom stamps for our wedding and was really happy with it.  We actually got a lot of compliments on the stamp so people did notice it!
