Buying or moving into a new home is always a big deal in a person’s life, whether it’s their first home right after getting married or their 10th home after moving around a bit.
SO MANY DESIGNS!
You can personalize the design to fit the gift recipient’s style and interests. Deciding what design to choose is the hard part! Address stamps can be ordered in many different colors and in the shape of rectangles, squares and circles. And of course there are a million fonts available, from block letters to cursive.
You can also add monograms or symbols to address stamps. For animal lovers, you might add a cat, dog or paw print. For newlyweds, you might add a heart.
RUBBER VS SELF-INKING VS PRE-INKED STAMPS
Address stamps can be purchased as plain rubber stamps that require the use of a separate ink pad, as self-inking stamps where the rubber retracts and stamps an inner pad, or as pre-inked stamps that have the ink contained within the rubber.
I highly recommend purchasing the pre-inked rubber address stamps as they are considered to be the top quality stamp. They create thousands of solid, crisp impressions before ever needing to be re-inked.
A great place to shop for custom address stamps is Etsy.com, where I purchased mine. I’m always happily impressed with the customer service provided by the sellers on the site.
I really love the look of custom return address stamps! They look so much classier than address labels and they’re a lot more economical in the long run. For a “thoughtful twist,” pair a custom address stamp with some beautiful stationery.
This gift idea also works well for an elderly person moving into their new place at a retirement home, an independent living center or a nursing home.
Home, the spot of earth supremely blest, A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest. – Robert Montgomery
