I think it is really pretty. I love the flowers across the top so much I want to steal them.

I got a custom stamp from looongchai on ebay and he is awesome and way way cheaper than anyone on Etsy.. Cheap and quick – but I am not sure he can custom a whole stamp so message him (and message me if that isn’t his screen name).

As far as whether to print or get a stamp- How many invitations are you going to do? If you print them, then you could print their addresses at the same time in that delicious font you are using for your names.

Does it include your last name and his last name and then are you going to adopt his last name? If so then a stamp is silly because after the wedding you can’t use it. Also that level of detail may not be possible for a tiny address stamp.

We got a stamp that just says Kim & Aaron (no last names) and we have already heard thru the grape vine of far flung family members contacting each other trying to figure out who we are because I didn’t include either of our last names so the stamp would be useful pre and post wedding.

I can’t say with certainty, but you *should* be fine.  I have gotten cards in the mail with detail around the delivery address.  I was worried about silver ink on a darker envelope, and it was no problem.  Before you do everything, maybe take one sample to the office and ask?  You’ll want to have everything weighed before posting, anyway, so maybe you can kill 2 birds with 1 stone!

As for the stamp v printing, will you be staying at that same address for a while?  Just another thing that may lean in favor of printing over stamping  🙂
