    Does anyone know where I can custom make my postage stamps? I know you can somewhere but I just checked out USPS and couldn't find it.....Anyone know of another legitimate site?

    Thanks,
    Cat

        Check out your post office website. I dont know what they call it in the US, Im guessing USA Post or something. lol
        They might have something on there that you could use.

            I also just read on Stamps.com, that they are USPS approved




            Is this real postage?
            Yes, PhotoStamps from Stamps.com are valid U.S. Postage, based on a technology called PC Postage, which is what creates the bar code you see to the right of the image area on PhotoStamps. Only vendors that are licensed and approved to produce PC Postage may display the logo seen below:



            Stamps.com, the company behind PhotoStamps, has been a USPS-approved provider of PC postage since 1999, and is the industry leader. When the product first launched in 2004, PhotoStamps by Stamps.com was the first customized postage product ever to be offered in the United States. On May 11, 2006, Stamps.com was authorized by the USPS to print business logos, messages and images on PhotoStamps.

              Y'all are awesome!!!! I just checked out the site...$0.94 cents for a regular stamp! Hhhhhmmm...I'm gonna have to think about it and decide if it's worth it. There are pretty regular stamps out there....This is a hard decision! But thanks again for your help!

                Honestly I think you should just go with regular stamps. I know here we can get really pretty floral stamps which would look great for a wedding invite. If you are sending a lot out its going to be quite an exspense, and honestly people are going to just throw the envelope out after. I say spend the extra money on something else. But thats just my opinion!!

                  If you don't want to spend the extra $$ for photo stamps, another alternative is using photo stickers - you can get them at the store on Digital Photo Printing, Free Online Photo Albums & Digital Photo Sharing - Snapfish: at $4.99 for 20 stickers. You could use them to seal the invite envelopes.

                    I agree! I discussed it with my FI and he agrees with me. Btw, my fiance and I are both Canadian. He was born and raised in Toronto. I lived in Oshawa :) Just thought I'd add that in. LOL.
