In an earlier blog, we delighted aboutone of manycommemorations of Prince William’s engagement announcement to Catherine Middleton… in the form of a British domestic postage stamp. As it turns out, while the U.S. Postal Service probably won’t be calling many U.S. brides for their engagement photos, there are ways to get around this problem.
Several companies,most notably photo.stamp.com, offer custom postage for your special occasion stationery, such as engagement announcements and wedding invitations. Submit an image such as a photo,logo or other graphic design, and with a fee, receive as many sheets as needed of customized postage stamps.
Personalized postage stamps are a unique way to tie together your suite of weddings tationery: from engagement announcements, bridal shower invitations, save-the-date cards and wedding invitations… even the wedding thank you notes.
For example, use your”marriage monogram” (first name initials flank eitherside of the shared surname initial) on a stamp, or a favorite photo image of the two of you (keep in mind that close-up headshot works best for a thumbprint-sized postal stamp). One word of caution: while your order takes only a few days to arrive, they cannot be used for international mailings at this time.
Their customization tools allow you to zoom, move, and rotate your image, and even choose a border color to match! Fourteen different postage denominations are available for purchase, ranging from 28-cent postcards to 44-cent regular first class mail.
Custom postage is also a fun way to show off your new baby, using them on birth announcements. Or, congratulate your new graduate by mailing graduation announcements with a stamp displaying his or her chosen alma mater! There are lots of possibilities for putting fun into postage and personalizing each and every special occasion mailing you plan.
