You only need a few supplies to send out your holiday cards! Here’s everything you’ll need to get started:

  • Your Custom Stamp
  • Envelopes
  • The Appropriate Postage Stamps (Read our Postage Stamp FAQs for more info!)
  • Your Holiday Cards
  • An Updated List of Recipient Addresses

Once you’ve gathered your supplies, you’re ready to start stamping! Here’s our step-by-step guide to help you get started:

  1. Lay out your empty envelopes on a flat surface
  2. Carefully create an impression on either the upper left corner or on the back flap of each envelope. If your stamp impression size is large than 1” in height or is any shape other than a rectangle, we suggest stamping your return address on the back of your envelope for the best results.
  3. Allow each ink impression plenty of time to dry, then insert your holiday cards!
  4. Seal your envelopes then add recipient addresses and the appropriate postage stamp
  5. Your cards are ready to be mailed! Ship out your cards to start spreading some holiday cheer!
