A Better Way To Do Return Addresses On Wedding Invitations & Sycamore Street Press Giveaway

Sycamore Street Press Custom Monogram Stamps

I’ve got a bone to pick you guys.  Truth be told, its more of an ‘oh come on you can do something more interesting then that’ bone!  Naturally I see my fair share of wedding invitations & accompanying that, how they are presented as a whole package.  I think that a lot of couples don’t really see a high level of importance when it comes to the invitation phase of their planning and as such tend to take a  more ‘just get them in the mail’ mentality.  While thats all well and good, it goes completely against something I truly believe in which is that your invitations set the tone for what your wedding will be like, as well as relate directly to how the day will look.  This might be a task that is easier said then done when you feel you arent even fully what that day will look like, but there are elements that can help no matter what direction you end up taking.

Basic Return AddressThe more interesting bone that I was speaking of is a super ignored area in the entire invitation program, branding & the return address.  Yup you heard me, these 2 little things are small little elements that can make all the difference.  I often find the return address is an invitation killer.  IF there is even a return address {crazy but it happens}, its typically a straight forward version, non-laid out address printed with one of the companies 4-6 basic font type options available.  The address interestingly designed in any fashion, its simply line 1, 2 & 3, no intrigue, its just…. there, at best.  The irony is that doing something like this is typically a $35 up charge on your order!  So just to recap, a boringly put together basic font type return address, costs you money.  Now when I mention branding, I am not necessarily speaking of a full on couple logo that is nauseatingly displayed at every turn, I am however, speaking of places where a gentle reminder can be placed about the couple, something cute & uniquely the couple.

The good thing is I have a pretty gorgeous alternative for you….. stamps!  Without even trying, stamps have a certain feeling of care & coolness about them.  Overall I feel stamps are totally underutilized in weddings which is a bummer because they can be so perfectly customized to do literally anything!  One example is dear to my heart which is that for my own wedding, for the menu piece of our sit down dinner, I created the layout of the full menu then turned into a giant stamp, stamping it onto vintage postcards.  They were a giant hit and while the stamp is nothing new, it brings an inherit vintage/retro quality which can easily be modernized depending on the design & fonts that you work with.  There is something special about stamps, trust me!
