Various materials and textures for romantic DIY wedding stationery

Although there are many types and sizes available, including self-inking stamps, the most popular rubber stamps seem to be traditional wood-mounted rubber stamps. Always consider the size of the rubber stamp when thinking about what you’ll be stamping, as stationary, envelopes, invitations, thank you notes, decorations, favors, and more. Different items may require different sizes of rubber stamps.

As with any DIY project, before you begin, it’s always a good idea to do a little homework first. Therefore, consider investing in stamping and embossing idea books that provide instructions and find step-by-step directions.

Save the Date

Save the Date rubber stamps are an easy and affordable way to make your own cards.

Typically, Save the Date cards are informal and give your guests advance notice of your upcoming wedding date. They are usually the first piece of correspondence that people receive and provide basic information.

Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations should include essential information regarding the ceremony and celebrations, such as what, when, and where. Other information might include an RSVP for the reception, a map to the event, acceptable parking areas, and suggestions for overnight accommodations. Using wedding rubber stamps can be budget-friendly, yet still, look as though they have been professionally designed.

Using a variety of different fonts allows for creativity in your designs. Consider mixing two fonts together or mix and match a variety of fonts. Do you like a timeless calligraphic or elegant script font? A retro or vintage old-fashioned serif, sans serif and script font, or perhaps a comic or novelty font? Stamps are available in all of these styles.

A thank-you rubber stamp also saves a great deal of time and effort and makes a thoughtful personalized gift for the bride and groom.

Fun Stamps

As previously mentioned, rubber stamps come in a variety of shapes and sizes so you can use them long after the wedding is over. (Think Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, birthdays, or “Just because”!)


Along with rubber stamps, consider incorporating embossing to add visual interest. To do this you’ll need an embosser, embossing paper, stickers, and/or envelopes. 

You can also use embossing ink and powders. To make an image with embossing ink, simply apply embossing powder while the ink is wet, then pour off the excess powder. Set the ink with a special heating tool held at a 45-degree angle and two inches above the paper. When the embossing powder melts, it becomes reflective and shiny.

Regardless of whether you select a traditional rubber stamp, self-inking or pre-inked stamps, or stamping and embossing kits, you’re sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests. Which rubber stamps will you use to create your very own romantic DIY wedding?

Here’s to a fabulous wedding day!

    I like that you using monogram stamps on a wedding invitation is a budget-friendly way to make it look like it was designed by a professional. My siblings and I are planning to surprise our parents with an outdoor renewal of vows wedding on their 50th wedding anniversary. Perhaps we should get PSA essential stamps for the wedding invitation since we're planning to do it by ourselves. Thanks a lot!
