You may have seen one show up in your mailbox ... if not, you will soon. What is it? It's a personalized postage stamp.
About 10 years ago, the Post Office experimented with offering personalized postage stamps which allowed customers to upload photos and have custom designed postage stamps delivered to their mailbox. After an initial testing phase, the personalized postage stamp program has proven successful and has been rolled out to several vendors. With a quick google search, you can find these vendors ready and able to create personalized postage for a variety of occasions - including weddings.
Personalized stamps for weddings are quickly becoming a new way to add that special touch to your invitations. With your own custom designed wedding stamps, your invitations will stand out in your guest's mailbox. These novelty stamps are also a great way to introduce your guest to your overall wedding theme.
Your wedding invitation stamps can be personalized with the bride and groom's name, wedding date, engagement photo, or a heart warming verse. Many sites offer the ability to choose from pre-designed wedding stamps with a variety of colors, styles and sizes are available. Brides can select a postage stamp with their wedding month or monogram in a variety of colors and sizes. Although custom postage does cost more than typical stamps, many brides feel it's worth it. They can also use the postage as a keepsake in their wedding scrapbook.
Stamps are typically sold in a sheet of 20 and offer several different sizes to fit your envelopes. Brides order directly from a vendor's website and the postage is delivered right to their door - typically within a week to 10 days. Postage stamps are available in a variety of sizes and 8 different denominations ... including .28 cents for postcards.
Whether you're having a "green wedding" or would like to showcase your Irish heritage, you'll be amazed at how many options are available for your wedding postage. Your guests will also be surprised when it shows up in their mailbox. Just be prepared for them to ask you "where did you get those stamps?"
