    I looked on the USPS' site and found these DC comic super heroes stamps. Since Will is a big comic fan and since we are doing informal boarding pass invitations, I think we are going to go with the super hero stamps. Not only do they reflect Will's love for comics but they are also super fun and very colorful. Love them!

    Product: DC Comics Super Heroes

    We will probably use 2 for each envelope.

You could use them to seal the invite envelopes.

      That Heidi is a smart one...

      I gave in and bought photostamps from stamps.com since my FI wanted OSU stamps for the STDs. They were postcard stamps, officially licensed by the college, so I did it.

        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.
        Yep, they're legit. Hubby works for them and they pay our bills so ORDER FROM PHOTOSTAMPS.COM. J/K other places offer them and I think they are a little pricey across the board. We get the employee discount which saved us a lot of $$ and we had our monograms put on the invitation stamps. They end up getting thrown away with the envelope but people really think it is neat. We put one of our wedding pics on the thank you note stamps. It's just a unique extra thing to do if you have the time.

          I was about to order the photo stamps when I realized the cost --- even after all the discounts I culd find it's $125 for 15 sheets of 20 stamps. NO WAY! Defeats the purpose of saving money with DIY. So, I'm going to do the photo stickers. $4.99 for a sheet of $20 is way easier to swallow!

              What an awesome idea! I think I am going to take a picture of my boston terror in a tux and create a stamp out of it.

                My fiance designed a custom stamp at zazzle.com and they came out great.

                I think it's worth it for an invitation. I did it for my STD and planning to do another for the actual invitation. Cost of a 41 cent stamps is 73 cents.

                      Sarah- Thank you. Still learing how to navigate this site. This site has been so helpful to me, and I am hooked. I just want to give back in any way possible.

                      Cheers
