I’m thinking about having a vintage garden theme for our wedding and I have fallen in love with those chic invites on pinterest with the vintage stamps on it such as the one below…but I feel like its not possible. Has anyone done this or gotten an envelope with this cool stamps?

This is actually more along the lines of the type of stamps I like. The post office has floral stamps right now but then I’d only need one stamp on each envelope since they’re “forever stamps”

You can order all kinds of stamps from the post office, and there are lots of different designs – we went with the bonsai trees. But actual old collectable stamps would be a giant pain in the ass if you’re doing more than a dozen invitations. If you love it, then look into it, but realize most people will not notice stamps.

check to see what zazzle has.
Honestly, no one notices the stamp. My mom an I got in a huge argument about stamps, so you think I would notice stamps now – nope couldn’t tell you what kind of stamp was on the last 5 wedding invites we got in the mail this month.

It’s legal, it’s possible, and it’s EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!

You might want to look on Etsy. Do a search for “unused vintage stamps” and you will come across heaps that you can buy and use as regular postage. Personally, I am using the “Vintage Seed Packet” forever stamps from the post office and rounding them out with a couple coordinating vintage stamps I found sets of on Etsy.
Most vintage stamps are not much postage, some as low as just a few cents, so they can be good for a little extra postage if your invites are a little thick or heavy and require a bit extra. It takes a little bit of work and searching, but is definitely doable! Especially if you can find sellers who offer large quantities.

I don’t think anyone would really notice the stamps, unfortunately. Perhaps you can incorporate them into your placecard design or programme covers, where they’ll have more impact?

@MrsTVLover: +1…we just did one $0.66 stamp for every outer envelope and one $0.47 cent stamp for every RSVP envelope and we spent $113 just on postage. :/
