I know exactly your frustration! I ended up using the gold bands. I was so frustrated with the 44 cent on the RSVP cards because they were smaller then postcard size but since I had an envelope on them they became 44 cent.  Stupid to me and such a waste of money. Oh well.  I think part of it depends on who you get working at the counter.

Yup!! My postage ended up being $1/each instead of $0.57 so instead of an airplane stamp that would match the theme I ended up with a daffodil stamp. Oh well .. I doubt anyone would notice. Might use plane stamps on the thank yous though.

I already made one mistake, and that was making them square – apparently the machine doesn’t know how to figure which way is up, so they have to be hand sorted, hence an extra .20 each. That’s without the extras on the inside… we’ll see soon enough. Fortunately I only have about 50.

Wow, I haven’t even really looked at invites yet, but this is making me cringe a bit. I’m definitely going to make sure I can minimize postage costs.

That’s weird, why did the twine ribbon make the postage cost more even though the weight was what you expected?

I hear ya… I was so not excited about the polar bear postcard stamps for our RSVP postcards.  They’re cute, but a little odd for our summer wedding.  I couldn’t justify spending more on custom stamps though, so I’m just sending them out with the bears.

My invitations were $.61 each and we were able to get the wedding cake design.  We were also able to get wedding rings for our $.44 stamps for the returns.  I was very excited.
