A Newlywed Review: Invitations By Dawn Personalized Wedding Stamp

As a newlywed, one of the things I have looked forward is selecting our own stationery and name stamp the same way I choose my own personal stationery, in a way that reflects our own unique personality as a couple, rather than the standard issue designs so many company's tend to offer today. When I came across Invitations By Dawn, I knew I had found just the company to create not only our signature stationery, but my personal stationery as well. This company is an excellent source for couples or personal stationery, for a unique holiday gift for a loved one, or for grooms and brides-to-be wondering what to give members of your wedding party as an appreciation gift.

When I was looking at personalized self-inking wedding stamp designs, so many companies offer until I saw the designs at Invitations By Dawn. I was especially taken with the Personalized Self-Inking Address Stamp, Bride and Groom design. They created a stamp for us using this design for me to review:

From the moment our stamp arrived, I was taken with its elegance and unique design. Our stamp is gracing many a wedding gift thank you note envelope as well as our letters, cards and mailings to friends and loved ones. I am impressed with the staying power and even coverage of the ink instead of coverage that can be uneven or too light to be visible. I love how the stamper gives a precise imprint on the paper rather than stamps I have used that I call "moody" because they gave a good imprint sometimes but other times extra filler would imprint with the stamp on the paper and take away from the presentation on the paper. I love the crisp imprint of the design that this stamp model offers.

This time of year, thankfulness is especially on the heart and it is the perfect time for me to share with you about the array of Thank You Card designs offered at Invitations by Dawn. I cherished writing our thank you notes for bridal shower and wedding gifts. I love writing thank yous to friends and loved ones for personal gifts and kind gestures, as well. Themes to suit so many interests and personalities can be found at Invitations by Dawn by clicking here.

This one is a favorite of both my husband and myself because it reminds us both of our beach proposal on the 4th of July, 2010. This design makes a perfect way to express your gratitude for a beach-loving couple or for a single person who loves the beach lifestyle:

I love butterflies and this butterfly design is a perfect choice for my personal thank you notes as well as for a couple like Craig and I who chose a butterfly-themed wedding:

 For a personal self-inking address stamp, I love this design for myself, the Fleur de Lys design:

My husband Craig likes the Bold Borders design for his personal self-inking address stamp:

For couples getting ready to embark on sending out holiday cards and letters, the Holly design stamp is such  a beautiful statement stamp for the season:

They offer a perfect finishing touch for everything from cards to letters to invitations with these elegant monogram envelope seals:

This winter, as I head out to the post office to mail all of my cards and letters, I look forward to sporting these divine snowflake hair pins they offer in their gift section.

Invitations By Dawn is an excellent source for both couples and personal stationery and address stamps, for a unique holiday gift for a loved one, or for grooms and brides-to-be wondering what to give members of your wedding party as an appreciation gift.
