USPS Changes Regarding Stamps

We admit our romantic hearts were quite sad when the US postal service ended their custom wedding stamp options. We loved seeing stamps featuring engaged couples photos and pretty stylized stamps with little details like wedding dates and blessings adorned on them. These tiny pieces of paper art were just so quaint and beautiful. Thankfully there are other options for wedding invitation postage stamps that are also lovely.

Custom rubber stamps are one way to add a tasteful and unique look to your envelopes for your wedding invites. You can order them online and buy ink pads in a variety of colors at any stationery store. You can also make save the date postage stamps using the custom rubber stamp method. You might even want to start collecting them and put your personal stamp on all mail once you are newlyweds.
