The English Stamp Company + Our Save the Dates ♥

I have an absolute obsession with stamps, it all started when Tom bought me an lower and upper case alphabet stamp set for Christmas a while ago. I love the look that stamps give and how easy they are to use! Due to my love for stamps I knew that we'd want incorporate stamps into our wedding Save the Dates, Invitations and Thank You cards. Stamps are so perfect for the rustic style wedding so many Brides to Be are having these days!
The English Stamp company is a Dorset based company that has been running since 1992. The beautiful stamps The English Stamp company sell are made in their (converted Dinosaur museum - how amazing!) Dorset based factory, it's lovely to support a British company who sell such high quality products. There really is a stamp for every need - address stamps, upload your own image stamp, Homemade produce stamp, stamps for children, your name, gift tag stamp, Christmas stamp and wedding favour stamps.
I was kindly send a 'Save the Date' stamp from The English Stamp Company (£26) and couldn't believe the quality. The wooden part of the stamp was so thick, sturdy and beautifully finished.

You can choose from four different letter fonts, depending on the theme of your wedding. You can completely personalised the wording, which is a feature of all of The English Stamp Company stamps. Look at how precisely the stamp has been carved, it always astounds me quite how precise the carving of stamps is. 

You can buy a range of inkpads from The English Stamp Company but I already had this relatively big inkpad from Amazon. I would recommend you use a big inkpad, otherwise ensuring you have an even coverage of ink on the stamp could be challenging.
For our Save the Dates we decided to use treasury tags, the ones we bought had white string on, so replaced it with some rustic twine Tom's Dad had given us. The stamp was the perfect size for the size of treasury tag we had, it's worth checking the size of your card/tag and the stamp to make sure they fit.

I wasn't concerned that the letters wouldn't stand out or would merge when I pressed the stamp into the inkpad (which does happen on some cheaper stamps) because you can see the high quality carving on the stamp. The large wooden mount meant it was so easy to use, I could position the stamp easily and I didn't get covered in black ink! 

Here's the finished Save the Date...

We are so pleased with the end result! I used a different stamp on the back that said 'To' and 'From' on, wrote our names and the names of the guests. It was that easy - honestly if you want effective but stress free Save the Dates/Invitations I would recommend using a stamp!

Are you a stamp fan like me?

Feel free to leave me a comment :)

  3. These are gorgeously simple and rustic. I really like how there's just enough twine for the recipient to hang and display the tag.
