Although inviting guests online is widely practiced, nothing beats being able to touch, feel and smell the paper used in letters and wedding invites.
A custom return address stamp is very trendy and valuable for addressing your wedding invitations, save-the-dates and thank you cards. It saves you printing time and is cheaper than hiring a calligraphy artist. Most of all, you can create a lovely, personalized design just for you and you can use it over and over again.
Here are creative wedding stamp ideas that are perfect for letting people know about your special day.
1. Vintage or Rustic
Vintage or rustic stamp designs have elaborate borders with old-fashioned elements that are set to take you back in time. If you have a country-style wedding, then having this romantic flair in your invitations is right for you.
You can have your design customized and have them embossed. It’s a formal and traditional solution when addressing your invitation cards but you can add your own twist when it comes to how it looks.
3. Modern Fonts
If you have a modern wedding, nothing says your edgy than mixing a script font with a serif font. It may not be the usual classical font, but it’s just as elegant and distinctive. This is a kind of print that your guests will remember.
4. Modern Initials
Want to take your modern invitation to another level? Use initials instead. They look sophisticated and mysterious as if you started your own company as a couple. The possibilities are endless.
If you want a more personal touch, have it handwritten before turning it into a rubber stamp. It may look informal but it’s honest and reflects you and your partner’s personality. Your friends and family will love it.
6. Custom Portrait
