If you were married last year sometime after February, your invitations and reply cards were probably adorned with the LOVE stamps, designed by one of my favorite designers, Louise Fili, and illustrated by the charming and talented, Ms. Jessica Hische. I enjoyed using these last year, especially for bills. I'm pretty sure the love stamp helped get our taxes done faster...seriously.
The USPS just unveiled the new wedding stamp for 2013, designed by Michael Osborne Design. You might not recognize his name, but you definitely know his design, especially if you shop at Target. Ever been tempted to buy an Archer Farms product because the packaging is so nice? me too...we have Michael Osborne to thank for that one. He has also designed Cocktails by Jen, branding for Gymboree, Janie and Jack, the list goes on. We now have Michael Osborne to thank for the new wedding stamp.
Unlike the LOVE stamp, this one is definitely geared more for weddings. Its nice and springy and sure beats the boring wedding cake or white rose stamp. To be honest, I still love the LOVE stamp from last year, but I have to appreciate the USPS using professional designers to design their stamps.
On a side note, I'm also excited to finally see a new option for a postcard stamp!! Good lord, I can't tell you how annoying it is to design beautiful RSVP postcards, only to slap a hawaiian shirt on it. So, here it is, the new postcard stamp---------------------->
Look, its better than a hawaiian shirt, okay?
What do you think of these options? Of course, if none of the USPS stamps work for you, you can always design your own.
