    Love the postcards!! IN the process now of trying to find the "right" ones...geesh I am stressed....7 months to go and I don't have STD's yet!! Having a time getting schedules together w/ photographer.
    With it being so late, do you think we could just send post cards, then the invites or just skip the postcards all together?! I am a mess! No one to help me except you ladies! Thanks again for all of the great info!! I don't know what I would do w/o this forum!!

        ddk5576- I think now is still a good time to send out save the dates... then the real invites two to three months out. It's really up to you! Are you planning on using pro photos for the STD's? Or what was your original plan for the STD's? You could always just send a nice email too if you don't want to bother.

              Don't sweat the small stuff. We are doing e-STDs. I created one myself in photoshop and will just email to the guest list along with our TA's info. We'll then send the formal invitations in a few months.

I got the smallest stamps from zazzle and stamps.com they are exactly the same size... so both too big. If you want the photo stamps maybe you could work something out with Ginger and maybe you can do an oversized postcard? or if you end up using the envelopes the size wouldn't be a problem! I looked for smaller personalized photo stamps but haven't had any luck. Let me know what you end up doing!

                Just an update. First of all..Ginger is a DREAM to work with. Second...there was an easy fix for the stamp issue. I told Ginger that the smallest custom stamp was 1.8 by 1.3 and had noticed that there was some room below the address section. She simply re-typset it and moved the address lines down!! Now the vertical stamp will fit perfectly!! Thank goodness...the only postcard stamp the post office had was a polar bear!! I just ordered my custom stamps from Zazzle.

                BTW...my proofs look AMAZING!! Can't thank you enough for this thread.

                  Ginger is a sweetheart! I can't wait to start working on our passport invites in a few weeks.

                    The postcards are adorable - the colors combination is awesome! I know the stamp thing would drive me crazy as well if everything did not line up right, but I'm sure no one else will notice.

                      Just an FYI...I got my stamps back from zazzle today....sent horizontal and not vertical so they must go back. They are however gorgeous!! However...for anyone looking to order from zazzle...I received a coupon code of givezazzle09 which is good for 10% off. Note however that when I ordered this past weekend, they had free 2-day shipping so....check to see if this is a good deal for you....don't know if you can stack codes.
