Stationery Inspiration: Stamps!

Posted by

Confession: I am in love with postage stamps.

Call me a geek, but I appreciate the fact that each stamp is an itty bitty piece of art that someone designed to adorn the corner of your envelope -- knowing full well that many people won't even notice them. Often, stamps are quite beautiful. I especially like when brides choose groupings of vintage stamps to use when mailing their wedding invitations, as you've seen in many of our stories and real weddings.

A while back, Corinne and I attended the ASDA's (American Stamp Dealers Association) Postage Stamp Mega Event, held at the New Yorker Hotel. We weren't sure what to expect -- we'd never been to the event before -- but we were pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable our experience was. Bonus: entrance was free! The ASDA hosts similar events all over the country, so if you're a fellow philatelist, you should totally check out their event calendar.

Are you planning to use interesting stamps on your wedding mailings? If so, I would love to hear what you're thinking about!

i love the airmail stripes seen here in green and yellow ( kind of unexpected) and on the second envelope we thought the embossed stamp (which is part of the actual envelope and not adhered separately) is pretty darn cool.
