Trend: Vintage Stamps


Photo from Antiquaria through the Oh So Beautiful Paper blog

I am seeing vintage stamps all over the wedding blogs and Instagram lately. Couples are using several different vintage stamps in a similar color scheme as their postage. It adds a beautiful touch to the envelopes. The look can be really gorgeous!  One of the premier stationery blogs, Oh So Beautiful Paper, wrote about this trend and lists several resources for buying vintage stamps and some places that will curate them for you based on color or theme.

Tip: Don’t purchase your stamps until you have a complete invitation set to bring to the post office to weigh and measure for accurate postage. A client once told me that her friend had mailed her homemade invitations one day and received them all back the next day; all stamped “insufficient postage”. She had to re-purchase all of her envelopes and stamps and re-address all of those envelopes. Better safe than sorry on this one!
