    I wanted to share these since looking at everything everyone else has shared on here has inspired me so much. My FI was originally inspired by the STD vintage post cards. Since we did an email STD we decided to incorporate that idea in to our actual invitations.

    We created a custom postage stamp on Zazzle.com using one of our engagement photos. I hand wrote all the invites using a gold pen.

    We put a gold insert in our envelopes (it had a little shimmer that doesn't really appear in the pic). The postcard is in a petal fold envelope and sealed with a vintage beach sticker.

    [Back of the postcard] We decided not to do an RSVP card and asked everyone to RSVP on our website (everyone did except one person who stuck a stamp on the postcard and mailed it back to us, LOL).

                Great job, I love so many things about them: the dark envelopes; the gold pen; the return address labels, the postcards.  Great job!

                  Thanks! :)

                   

                  We ordered both the custom postage stamp, vintage beach stamp and return address label from Zazzle.com

                   

                  I bought all the envelopes (A7 envelope, gold liner and petal envelopes) at the same paper store so I knew they'd match and be the right size. I used a double sided glue tape (similar to this: http://www.paper-sou...016/496889.html) to glue the gold liners in to the envelopes. Super easy, just a little time consuming.

                   

                  I can't take credit for the postcard -- that was all my fiance -- he and a coworker designed them in photoshop and got them printed at a local print shop. (I bet Vistaprint would have been way cheaper than that place, oh well!). I think they borrowed a stamp brush from here: http://www.psd-dude....-photoshop.aspx and then added the heart and date.
