Personalized stamps are a fun way to add your unique touch to your outgoing mail, and they don't take long to design. Shutterfly’s layouts for simple postage stamps let you use your own photo and a variety of text colors and filter effects to make something completely your own. Here are some events you might want to commemorate with a personal stamp.
Changing Your Address
When you get a new address, a photo in front of your new home makes for a great stamp. Since you need to get the word out about your new address anyway, it would be a good idea to make some matching wedding address labels to go with your new stamps.
A beautiful picture for a stamp would be anything from a recent wedding. This could be your first dance together, a combined family picture, the bouquet toss or a first kiss as a married couple. Wedding stamps are great for thank you cards after your big day or for general use.
The Birth of a Child
You can make the birth of a new family member even more special by adding a photo to your stamps and other stationery.A notepad with multiple new family photos is a wonderful gift for grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends.
When Your Child Leaves the Nest
When your son or daughter graduates and goes off to college, graduation stamps can be for multiple uses. On the one hand, when you use these stamps to send your own mail, you recall fond memories with your child and show off how proud you are of her or his recent life change to anyone who receives your letter. On the other hand, giving your child a set of stamps, envelopes and stationery means she or he has no excuse not to write home.
You can personalize your own simple postage stamp set here on Shutterfly's website. Whether to announce a big change in your life or just show off a favorite photo, a unique postage stamp can help in your efforts.
