Has anyone done custom postage for their wedding invites? I've been looking at etsy and thinking about it... any opinions or experiences?

Like a postage stamp you pay to mail a letter? I didn't think anyone but the mail company could do that? Nonetheless my fear is people just throw envelopes out and it would be a waste. But I may not fully understand what you mean :)

We didn't do custom postage for the wedding invites since we ran out of time but we have ordered them in the past for Christmas Cards. They were a huge hit, especially for the stamp collectors and of course the kids.
The only way to do this in Canada is with Canada Post, here is the link: http://picturepostag.../cpc-cpc/stamps

For stamps in the US, try here: http://photo.stamps....urce=si10985886


It was not that expensive when we did it and I think it would be well worth the extra flare if you wanted to jazz up your invites.


It also really depends on what kinds of other postage stamps are available for purchase when you are ready to purchase them... If you can get nice floral ones or other theme appropriate then it might not make as much of an impact as if all that were to be available were wildlife ones. (or heaven forbid the new haunted series lol)


When I went to get postage for my invites the ones they tried to sell me had beavers on them, BEAVERS! It was that or left over Christmas stamps. There was no way I was going to put either of those on my invites! I was able to go to a different post office and they had some really nice rolls of lilly stamps that were great, I don't know if they were last year's stock or bran new stock but nowhere else had them. I was thanking my lucky stars! I would have waited the extra time for custom ones to come in had I not found those or something similar.


I hope this helps :)

My invites needed $.91 stamps so we pretty much had to (they only had one in stock) but it wasn't that expensive and I think it was well, well worth. They were so cute and people have told us they liked them. I used zazzle.com for mine.

    We were planning to use http://www.zazzle.com but ran out of time and just went through the post office. They have several postage rates including the 70 cent ones for square envelopes.

    I did custom stamps with one of our engagement pictures.  Everyone loved the stamp.  It wasn't much more than a regular stamp.
