DIYing your wedding stationery can be a great cost saver, but if you’re not into hardcore crafting it can be a bit overwhelming. Well, I have the perfect compromise…. personalised rubber stamps!
I’ve talked about using personalised rubber stamps in my Ultimate Guide to DIY Wedding Invitations. No matter how many guests you have you only need to invest in one stamp, an inkpad and some cards or luggage tags, so it really is a cost effective option. Plus once you get the hang of it, through a practice stamp or two, it’s so simple to do!
This method works especially well for Save the Dates, so I was delighted to discover the gorgeous new personalised rubber stamp range from Razzle Dazzle Rose, all the stamps pictured are from this collection. By the way this isn’t a sponsored post or anything, I just think they’re lovely and I bought cards and envelopes from Razzle Dazzle Rose for my own wedding and loved them!
I’m loving the idea of using luggage tags as cute Save the Dates and how cute is that vintage fabric ribbon threaded through?
I used a personalised rubber stamp for our Save the Dates so I’m something of a veteran stamper! It really is pretty fool proof, but I do have some tips to get the best results possible:
- Do a couple of practice runs on some blank paper at first and then at least one practice run on a spare card so that you can decide where to best place it.
- To avoid a smudgy result, dab the inkpad onto the stamp as opposed to pushing the stamp into the inkpad.
- Use both hands on the stamp where possible. Line it up over where you want it on the card and push down in one movement – almost gently rolling from top to bottom. Then remove the stamp cleanly from the paper.
- If there are some areas on the stamped card that are more faded than others, that’s really ok – this is particularly suitable for a rustic or vintage look, so embrace the imperfections!
So there you have it – the perfect low-impact DIY option for wedding stationery and some purty inspiration from Razzle Dazzle Rose. Are you going to ink it up for your wedding?
