    Hi Jason:

    I manage the PictureItPostage business and saw this posting. Thank you very much for covering us in your blog. I created a coupon code for your readers if you would like to post it. Use the below coupon code during checkout and your readers will get a total discount of $3 off 1 pack of 20 stamps, $5 off 2 packs of 40 stamps, and $7 off 3 packs of 60 stamps.

    One nice thing that is unique to PictureItPostgage is that customers can pick up a color from their photos and make the background area of the stamp design (area around the postal bar code) match that color. In the picture of our website in your original posting, you’ll notice that the pink background color in the stamp matches the flower held by the bride.

    Many thanks again and best wishes to all who are engaged.

    The whole custom stamp idea is genius in my opinion. The world was full of boring stamps before its invention and I personally hate going to the post office! Zazzle has tons as you mentioned although sometimes it is a bit of a beating to wade through so many to find the good ones. My current favorite stamp is the Calla wedding stamp at the top of the page below. It could be used for anything though since it is not really wedding specific.
