Rubber Stamp Escort Cards

Barb Salzman, founder of Hatch Creative Studio, created an escort card that was both stylish and functional with these rubber stamps. For this intimate, rustic wedding at Blue Hill in Manhattan the bride was stumped when it came to how to address the invitations. Barb’s idea? Create custom stamps for each guest to address the invitations, and then use the rubber stamp as a combined unique and personalized escort card and favor. Not only were the escort cards practical, but they also saved the couple from having to spend on calligraphy and an additional favor. The creativity and ingenuity in this wedding didn’t end with the escort cards either! In lieu of a traditional guest book, guests signed stones for the couple to keep in their home.

    I understand they saved money on calligraphy and stationary – and used them as favors – but the question is – what did they pay for the stamps? That seems like it would just even out IMHO. I mean, how many guests? I would think each stamp would be at least $10.00.

    We priced out our invitations at about $3.00 pp (I am DIY) our escort cards at $2.50 pp (DIY)and we’re doing our own calligraphy (my fiance is doing it, actually)…and our favors are budgeted at about $3.00 pp also. (I bought an embosser and embossing powder in metallic gold and a seahorse rubber stamp, so that all comes to about $50.00 but it’s part of the escort card pricing shown above)

    I guess it might save money if we used the stamp design on other elements, such as the ‘chair signs’ we made for the ceremony (we’re assigning seats)….but those will be very affordable as they are basically color copies on cardstock cut out and double-sided taped onto the chair backs.

    I wish The Knot would put pricing on these kinds of posts. This is an idea without any real information.

    Hi Ella! Thanks for your comment. Stamp prices can vary depending on the size of the wedding, where you’re ordering, the amount of text. For that reason we do not provide prices, instead they’re meant to be the jumping off point for an idea. In this case the idea is a way to combine escort cards, invitation addressing, and a favor.

    Thanks for your response, Simone. I guess what I mean is, it could be nice to give a general idea. Recipes do this all the time, and people then just adjust as needed. So, maybe how much per stamp if you needed 100 stamps and each was three lines of text? As you say, a jumping off point.

    Another help would be a vendor who makes such stamps linked into a post.

    I agree – I also would like a price on buying 100 stamps (how much per stamp)……..3 lines of text…….

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
