If you've ordered custom invitations, we'll guide you through this part and assist in hand canceling & mailing your order. If you've selected a semi-custom suite, then read closely below- this applies to you!
Step 1: Take a sample to the Post Office
Each custom invitation suite we create are a different weight and thickness. Yours will be a no different. We always suggest taking one completed sample to the post office to weigh it and measure it before you even order or purchase stamps. Our invitations are typically $0.93 each to mail, but that can vary widely.
Step 2: Order & Purchase Postage
There are lots of fun ideas for stamps. You can check out what the post office has available HERE. You can create something customized online through a company like Zazzle.com, or you can shop Etsy for some neat vintage options!
Step 3: Hand Canceling
You can take your invitations one step further by "hand canceling" them. The Post Office needs to mark stamps, so they can't be used more than once. There is an option to cancel them by "hand stamping" them as used. Some post offices do no offer hand canceling, and others charge for it. You'll have to do some research to find one that offers this service. Also, your invitations WILL still go through a sorting machine - the hand canceling service only applies to how the stamp is treated. There will still be a barcode printed on each invitation.
