Like fancy stamps! Wow. Zazzle is a cool service that lets you print your own stamps. That’s nifty, right? To see your own artwork on stamps? Yes, but there’s over a 100% markup for it! It’s about $20 for a sheet of 20, $0.44 stamps. Yes, you read that right, more than twice what the stamps are worth as postage. Cool stamps are just not worth paying almost 2/3 more than the postage value of the stamp. We’re going to stick with standard USPS stamps for our invitations (when we get around to ordering, printing, and mailing them this summer). Just that I’d share this PSA.
BTW, where is our invitation to DJ and Jeanine’s wedding? It’s 7 weeks away and I’m not about to make formal plans to go until I get an invitation…. They asked for our address and we talked about how excited we were to come when they visited in October. My parents haven’t gotten their invitation yet either, so I don’t think we’re no longer invited. Oh well. We’ll just keep their wedding date on the calendar and keep any travel plans on hold until we get the GO signal via mail. [Hopefully this won’t be a concern for our wedding since we sent out save the date magnets and will be mailing the invitations 9 weeks out. 3 weeks is long enough to respond, right? That gives us 6 weeks of working with actual attendance numbers to make plans here.]
