hi friends! we’re trying something new over here…the first of lots of big changes…to find out more about this new feature click here.
today I wanna talk about postage stamps. the inspiration for this post came from Style Me Pretty here (that site is so neat – if you don’t know it and you’re planning a wedding – check it out). in our planning we never thought about this, but if you’re going with themed postage, buy enough stamps for ALL your correspondence. save-the-dates. rehearsal dinner invites. rsvp cards. even thank yous. (postcards from the honeymoon? …maybe not). many stamps from the USPS are limited editions and only available for a certain amount of time.
alternatively, you could use a site like zazzle.com and have your designer customize something totally unique to your event. Here are a few of my favorites from their wedding postage collection:
if you found a stamp you love, you could even work with a designer to incorporate the stamp into part if the outer/RSVP envelope printing design. sure, it’s not for everyone, but for the right event, it could create a really charming touch to the stationery suite!
also, this may be common knowledge for many folks (haven’t brushed up on my USPS rules) but there are restrictions for the size and shape of first class mail. Check with your designer or better yet, the post office for the rules – you may need extra postage.
well, thanks for reading! let us know what you think! will you/did you use special stamps? do you wish you would’ve? any other tips or advice?
