Your Wedding Invitations: Signed, Sealed and Delivered with Personal Style
I was introduced to the photo stamp concept by a really fun couple I met at a recent bridal fair. The and Petrina are not only super-nice, they’re also super-photogenic. They’re planning a triple-location wedding: Taipei (for her family), Hawaii (for his) and L.A. (for everybody else)—so they’ll probably be ordering lots of “Airmail” photo stamps! Petrina sent me a picture of their first-class photo stamps.
Can you imagine the possibilities?
- Are they real postage? Yup.
- Is it complicated to make them? Creating PhotoStamps is so easy, even I can do it. Just upload a photo, and then customize it—the Stamps.com interface lets you zoom, move and rotate your image. You can also select one of 10 border colors to coordinate with your image and envelope.
- How long does it take to get an order? Normal orders typically ship in 3-5 business days.
- I bet it’s really expensive, right? Wrong. While the actual cost will depend on your postage needs, a sheet of first-class photo stamps for a 1oz letter at Stamps.com costs $15.99 (20 stamps to a sheet). TIP: Use postcards for Save the Dates and RSVPs—regular postage is $.27 instead of $.42.
- What size are the stamps? Each individual PhotoStamps postage label measures 1.9 inches in width by 1.4 inches in height, and the image area is 1.1 inches in width by 1.1 inches in height.
