Here are 6 Cheap Wedding Favors You Can Do Using Your Stamps

Planning of being creative on your wedding? Ever done cheap wedding favors? You should! Weddings, especially if you’re the one planning, is pretty much stressful. Of course, you want to go all out for this special event.

But couples nowadays, however, are more hands-on in planning their wedding. Although it’s fun and enjoyable to choose the flowers, the clothes, the food, or the decoration of the place for your entourage, you can’t deny that it still pretty much gives you a headache.

There’s so much to do before the big day! Plus, the wedding favors!

Most couples love to create something with a personal touch for their wedding favors. If you’re looking for a creative and a less expensive wedding favor, then try incorporating it with your personalised stamps.

It’s simple, and it doesn’t take forever to make! And the personalised touch gives symbolism of the couple’s celebration of love.

 

Here are the best ways to save your money from spending too much on wedding favors using your personalised stamps

 

1. Drawstring bags

These make good favor bags. You can fill the drawstrings with treats as much as your heart desires and it’s convenient enough for you and your guests. Instead of spending more on meters of expensive cloth, try to utilise flour sacks as an alternative. Decide on a size to have uniformity on your favor bags.

After the bags are put together, here comes the best part – stamping! You don’t have to worry about your drawstrings looking too ordinary; your personalised stamps got your back. Take your rubber stamps and design the middle part of your bag. Or, if you want a more meaningful print, use your self-inking date stamps to emboss the date of your special day. Makes it more memorable for the people attending your wedding.

 

2. Bottles filled with sand

An exceptional souvenir, particularly on weddings with a beach wedding theme, are bottles filled to the brim with sand.  You can use any bottles you have, even the used ones, make sure they’re clean once you put the sand in. If you want to see the sand inside, use clear bottles. Then, take your trusted rubber stamps, and around the body of the container, you can stamp the design — an excellent way to treat and gift your guests a touch of the sea you had exchanged your vows with your partner.

    

3. Handkerchief

During the reading of the vows, it’s expected and anticipated that the audience will be weeping tears of joy during the ceremony. Embossed with the print of the date of your wedding using your self-inking date stamps, or, minimalistic design with your personalised stamps. It transcends the feeling of sentimentality. Plus, it’s kind of a sweet keepsake as a remembrance of the holy matrimony.

   

4. Soaps

It’s not just your typical soap! These are handmade soaps. If you want to save time and effort, you can buy them from your local small businesses. But, if you’re going to be more involved in creating your favors; then, you can make your own using scented wax and oils. For the safest and allergy-free soaps, stick with organic and natural ingredients.

But that’s not the best part! Make use of your personalised stamps to get a good stamp design. Although make sure that you’re gently and only mildly pressing on the soap to get the best result, you wouldn’t want to break and waste even just one.

 

5. Cookies

It’s no surprise that stamping on cookies has long been a thing. The trick here is how creative you can get with it. After you’ve made the dough, or if you just bought the batter, you then choose the cookie shape you’re going to do. For instance, you’re doing hearts, make sure that you’ve picked the right size for your cookies to avoid baking too many or too few. Then, bake the dough.

After you let the baked cookies cool, you can cover it with fondant. You don’t have to buy rubber stamps, if you don’t have one, make use of your self-inking stamps. Stamping on fondant is as good as stamping on clay. You can even paint on the embossed words. You can also make use of the drawstrings. And voila, you’ve got yourself a food wedding favor!

 

6. Cardstock

Cardstocks are the most common and cheapest way to do your wedding favors. Nothing will ever top the use of letter and postcard types of wedding favor. But! It’s no longer limited to being a postcard, and you can also use your cardstock as tags for other wedding favors — tying cards around the other wedding favor with the stamp of your personalised stamps, where you can utilise both your personalised stamps and self-inking date stamps when you emboss it on the paper.

 

Final Thoughts

These wedding favors serve as a mark of the special day you’re celebrating with your special someone. All your guests will remember your special event because of these favors. And you don’t have to be a stamp expert to do this activity for your wedding favors. You’ll get it done in one minute only! What are you waiting for? Save your money with creativity and get stamping!

Increasing Productivity On Offices Using Signature Stamps

Increasing Productivity On Offices Using Signature Stamps

Signatures may look simple however they hold so much power. With a single signature, you can officially transfer your properties to someone else or transfer your power to another person. Signatures are also important especially if you own a business. Your signature is needed by almost everyone in your office to be able to move on with their tasks. So what happens when you’re not in your office to sign documents and files? The work is stuck until you come back. Signature stamps can make the flow of yours in your office more fluid.

 

How? Here are 2 ways you can use your signature stamp:

 

Mail Campaigns

 

mail campaigns

Business means you have to make sure the everyone is aware of the services you offer or the products you’re selling. I’m saying you’d have to advertise and spread brand awareness (throughout Australia if possible), and that means you’d have to spend a few dollars with high hopes of a greater Return of Investment. You can easily spread brand awareness using the power of the internet. But what about the customers who come into your business personally? How about those customers who are not aware of your website? How are you able to reach them and maintain a good relationship with them.

This is where your Mail Campaign comes in. I know a Mail Campaign can be quite costly especially when you’d have to order for a personalised envelope as opposed to buying the regular envelopes that you can buy anywhere. You can use a personalised colop self-inking stamp for marking your business address and using your signature stamp, you can make the letter more formal. Sending this kind of letter to your customers for your campaign strengthens your relationship with your customer.

You can also use this for formal party invitations for your business event. You can use the same address stamp on the envelope together with the signature stamp to make the letter official so no one can open it other than the person you chose to invite for your party.

 

Files and Documents

 

files and documents

As I have explained on the first point, there may be circumstances that require you to go out of your office to complete some business matters. This is when your trusted someone takes over and reviews some documents. However, there are still documents that you must review and not someone else. In this case, by the time you come back to your office, a tower of paperwork that needs your approval is expected. Yes— even if you left your signature stamp to your trusted person.

This is where your personalised signature stamps from Australia comes in handy since you don’t have to sign on every one of the documents (which is quite a tiring job). Using a stamp with your signature embossed, your signatures are just one stamp away. You don’t have to manually repeat the same pattern over and over again. This can come in handy especially if you’re in a hurry for another upcoming appointment. This does not only speed up the process in your office but also can help save you time.

Think about it, if you’re able to speed up the process of signing documents, which results to a more fluid workflow in your office. You’ll be able to finish work faster. Finishing work faster means you have a lot of time to work on other tasks which implies that you’re being productive in your work.

 

Final Thoughts

You don’t have to tire yourself out, or split yourself into two just so you can sign papers and documents much faster. You can always opt for a signature stamp. The process is simple. Look for a stamp designer online, send them a sample of your signature, and wait for your order to arrive.

Wedding Invites

First off – invitations. You can’t have a wedding if you don’t send out invitations to family and friends. Don’t agonise about the design. This craft can be done by anyone, even you.

If you’re worried, go for something minimal. Nothing goes wrong with the basic look.  Just get yourself a piece of cardstock and your trusted custom made rubber stamps. Ink the stamp thoroughly, stamp it gently straight down on the paper to see good results, let it dry, and you’re done!

 

Wedding Envelopes

You keep envelopes on your cupboard, right? Get them out of there and use them on your invitations. Begin by printing the important details on the envelope first. It gives more emphasis and priority on what significant information you have to remember, such as: who’s getting married, where it’s gonna be, and when it’s gonna happen and most importantly who are you sending it to.

The bonus of doing this is, you won’t accidentally send you aunt’s invite to a distant relative because you can immediately write their names on the invites after you stamped on them.

 

Wedding Tablecloth

Whether you’re doing an outdoor wedding or a grand chapel one, you’re bound to have a reception. And screams your special day more than a tablecloth that specialised for you. It’s another great chance for you to use your stamp and customised you tablecloths

There’s no need for you to spend a fortune, just to buy patterned tablecloths, stamp on them using your custom rubber stamps. Take your fabric and make a style of your own. Design by creating a pattern, repeatedly on the same line, until you start in another line progressively. Whichever angle you prefer the stamp to be facing. Then, let it dry after you’re finished stamping.

 

Festive Buntings

Buntings are also a good choice for decorations. You ca drape it on the ceremonial wall or all over your reception area. Print letters on each triangle, so when you put it together, it forms a word or a phrase for the audience to see. Designs that correlates to the occasion like: rings, cake, an outline of a couple kissing, etc. Also, grain sack is a good alternative if you don’t have any cardstock available as your bunting.

 

Event Balloons

Balloons, for wedding can come in a variety of styles and shapes. And depending on what you want you can go crazy stamping them.  And they are frequently used in different occasions, whether it’s celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, and or parties. So, no fuss you can play around with them.  It gives highlight on the event, especially if the print is pleasing to the eye. Just blow at least ¾ air into the deflated balloon, keep the air inside and ink your approved rubber stamp thoroughly. Then press it down accurately as possible to have clean results.

 

Chair Covers

Another cool thing to do with stamps is decorating chair covers with prints. You can go all out crazy with stamping on them or you can take the modest approach of decorating only the chair tie. It can give a very endearing feel to any wedding decoration, since you stamp the names of the people sitting on the seats.

Do note that, it’s preferable to use fabric and have your way in designing using your personalised stamps. Use the ink color that fits the motif of the event, of course. Minimal designs are actually good for these kind of decorations

.

Napkins and Tissues

If you can make DIY prints on chair covers and balloons why not on napkins and tissues right? Blend it to the motif of the wedding. Use your traditional rubber stamps that you either buy on craft stores or old ones you get at thrift shops! Let’s combine creativity and convenience together. Stamp down designs on your napkins and tissues carefully in coordinated lines. Whether you want them in the left or right angle, whichever you prefer.

 

Cookie Giveaways

People are getting more and more innovative. Eating food embossed with custom made rubber stamps using food coloring as ink is a new feat. Pressing your stamp down carefully on unbaked dough takes a good reflection of the exact form of the self-inking stamp. You can do it on cookie treats too!

Take for example, a cookie is covered in royal frosting. It’s good to press down the stamp gently, (because we don’t want the cookie to break) on the frost that’s beginning to harden to create a perfect image. Just remember to use stamps that are new and have never touched ink that’s not edible.

 

Wedding Cake

What’s a wedding without a cake, right? Honestly, the highlight after the bride and groom is the wedding cake! One of the things that makes a bride stressed during the organising of the event. Use the same approach that you did with your cookies on to your cake.

Transform your simple and a boring cake into one that you’ll remember. Make this event even more romantic, cover the body of the cake with portions of your vows.

 

Deco Ribbons

Have no idea for your souvenirs? Personalise using your traditional rubber stamps on ribbons, grain sack pouches, cards, and etc.

Try using your ribbons or washi tapes in wrapping gifts! It’s a good alternative if you don’t have any wrapping papers available. Just tie the gifts with your stamped ribbons.

Stamp your rubber stamps in a straight line with one after another.  Whichever angle you want to imprint the stamp several times. It’s okay if it’s repetitive, that’s the purpose, so when you tie it around, you can see the stamp design. Make sure that your stamp is inked thoroughly to avoid mistakes.

 

Wedding Pouches

Pouches are also good gifts to give. Make it even more unique by printing stamp designs on them. Add your personal touch on your pouches. Space is limited, so you can just stamp one or two designs. Embellish the pouch with the wedding couple’s name, the date, or a short message you want to say.

Prepare your custom made rubber stamps that’s already inked thoroughly. Align the area where you want the print to be. Gently stamp down the stamp design on the pouch to avoid outlines, then let it dry.

 

Wedding Cards

Or if you are on a tight budget, give out wedding cards. It is a lot smaller compared to invitations. These cards are basically styled only with the name of the couple and the date of the wedding. Anything else is just left simple and sophisticated.

Use your available craft papers where you will be stamping your personalised stamps. Ready your approved rubber stamp and ink the color of your choice unto the stamp completely. Next, position the stamp on the craft paper directly. Hold the stamp in precision to avoid outline marks on the sides of the result. Then, smoothly remove the stamp to let the card dry.

Use Complementary Fonts

Why stick to one font when you’re making your stamp design? Instead of choosing only Times Roman or Arial or Calibri as your font, use complementary fonts. Two fonts that complement each other, that way you’ll have variation in your design and your font.

Here’s a list of complementary fonts that you can use in your stamp design:

  1. Minion Pro & Super Grotesk
  2. League Spartan & Libre Baskerville
  3. Freight Sans & Freight Text
  4. Kaufmann BT & Neutra Text
  5. Minion Pro & Brandon Grotesque
  6. Helvetica Neue & Garamond
  7. Caslon & Myriad
  8. Fontin & Fontin Sans
  9. Rockwell Bold & Bembo
  10. Souvenir & Futura Bold

A quick way to choose which fonts fit each other best is following the three guidelines below.

  • Choose fonts from Superfamilies meaning fonts of the same family of the typeface like Lucida paired with Lucida Sans or Meta paired with Meta Sans
  • Use contrasting typefaces, fonts that look totally different but look good together examples would be Kaufmann matched with Neutra Text
  • Pair Sub-categories like Old style fonts with Humanist style fonts, Transitional style fonts with Geometric style fonts.

Use Fancy Fonts 

Remember the saying “Dress to Impress” well the same goes for your font. Using fancy looking fonts like Hickory Jack, Pacifico, Lobster, Dancing Script, Great Vibes, Kaushan Script, Arizonia, Edwardian Script and many others give a sense of sophistication to your address. Similar to how the old regal and aristocratic families of the old use to send letters, fonts that look elegant make the readers perceive you to be an elegant and refined person. There’s nothing wrong with giving a good first impression, even if it’s in a letter.

Try All Bold Letters

There’s nothing like a striking, bold introduction right? Using all capital letters to announce your name in your self-inking stamp imprint attracts your receiver’s attention. Once you receive a letter with the name of the sender in bold, it won’t be hard for you to know who sent the letter. It’s a great way to highlight the sender, and the lighter no-bold address below will be read afterwards, like a relief font from all that capital letters you initially shocked them with.

Do note that the only thing that should be in bold letters is your name, not the whole imprint.

Avoid The Usual Fonts

You know, the typical font you use in the office Calibri, Times, Arial, nothing screams ordinary more than an address stamp written in commonly used fonts. Be different, use fonts that will wow whoever receives your letter or document. What’s the use of having personalised stamps made when you’ll be using a font that your competitor is also using?

Add Other Details

Your custom rubber stamp should be just how the word describes it “custom” made for you. So, why not add extra details to your address stamp? Put in details in the design like borders which can either be plain or image borders like leaves, fruits, animals, depending on what you’d like to see in your address stamp.

Aside from borders, you can also incorporate images directly into your design. You want to include your company logo into your address stamp, then, by all means, go ahead. How about including your face or that of your workers in the stamp, you can also do that. The choice is all up to you.

Forget the Traditional

Ignore the old traditional box style for custom rubber stamps and even self-inking stamps, go for the unique style available today. You have a wide variety to choose from, from circle shaped to triangle shaped and even the crazy address stamp imprints written inside a house figure to than inside a shape that looks like a state. With the numerous choices to stand-out why would you settle for the ordinary rubber stamps design?

Conclusion

Address stamps should be boring text that lack imagination and they also should look like an abstract piece of writing. By being creative but at the same time remembering what address stamps are all about you can create stamp imprints that leave a lasting impression on your readers. One that will remind them that address stamps can be beautiful prints too.
