It should be no surprise to anyone that this dork collected stamps as a kid. My folks had friends from all over the world so I was quite spoiled with seeing cool stamps from all over the world. That hobby definitely dwindled and I never paid attention to stamps because it seems that stamp design in the states became so patriotic that I rarely saw anything other than flags or liberty bells. My interest in stamps got renewed last year when I took a batch of invitations to the post office to mail. An awesome postal service lady pointed out she had just the stamps for me. Summer + Indian wedding = Tropical Fruit Stamps! Heck yeah, she was so right and boooo for me (duhhhhhhh!) for not paying attention!
Looking at USPS website they have more not-so-lame postage stamps out, especially the really cool
card shark love stamp that has been all the rage online lately. These would be awesome on rockabilly, vegas-themed or citrus-colored wedding invites. I know it'd be subtle, but how cool would it be if the groom's invites had the king, and the brides side, queen?
So yeah, I have a couple ideas up my sleeve all inspired by current stamps. How's this set for a couple of kickass vintage weddings?
More to come...
