I would just use the aloha stamps, no one will notice or care!

hahahha! I just did the same thing- have these adorable ‘garden party’ themed cards and had to buy those ugly aloha stamps.  So far no one has said anything to me about it, I just let it go and rolled with it!

There is a way around this!  Eventhough the result may not be as great anyways.  You can use separate stamps to add up to the postcard amount.  I think its super cute with vintage stamps.  I know right now the 10 cent stamp is George Washington or some other dude.  But check with your post office and see what they have on hand to add up to the 32 cents.

Honestly, I think that the only person who will even pay attention to it is you. Its easy to get so caught up in the details but truly, your guests won’t even notice.

haha i think it’s part of the charm.  i had these pretty ivory rose stamps picked out…got to the post office, ladys like it’s too heavy without even weighing it. then she puts it on the scale.  Tells me I need to put 20 cents more on each invite…and thus my invites turned out like this. and I loved it. lol.

Yes, vintage is THE way to go- there are a lot of 32cent value stamps out there or you add up to the value with multiple stamps. Ebay is a great resource for purchasing entire sheets of vintage stamps- also there is a stamp store in NYC called Champion that is a GREAT resource. I’m doing this for my STD’s which are also postcards AND for my wedding invites, since my theme is lightly Great Gatsby based.

I had to use the Aloha stamps as well…I hated them, but that’s all they had! I actually just had one person ask me if I was honeymooning in Hawaii. But overall I dont think anyone will really notice.

Happy 2013! Now its apple stamps definitely an improvement on the aloha stamps which are only cute if you are doing a tropical destination wedding….The new apple postcard stamps are perfect if you have a country themed wedding so theres a win for some of our brides as the country wedding theme is super cute right now!!

However, we are not having a country wedding theme or a tropical destination wedding so what am i suppoed to do for our postcard response cards?….I know its not a big deal but I am handmaking my invites and its going to kill me compile my invitation suite and then stick some apples on my response cards….not to mention to see them everytime one comes back in the mail…

I’m also not about to pay over a dollar per stamp for custom stamps on zazzle to send out postcards. They are cut but not so cute that I’m going to spend an extra $200 cute….

At least I saved money not buying the tiny respsonse envelopes….so i guess I will just use the forever write rose stamps which I am using on my invites.

ALOHA!

 

No one cares about the stamps. I promise you. Do not waste money buying new stamps. Just use the damn Aloha stamps.

The aloha stamps were perfect for our tropical wedding, but nobody even mentioned them 😉
