The back of the envelope has always been my favorite place to write a return address. There’s the advantage of space, of course, always appealing to a girl who likes to give her letters room to sprawl and flourish and show off a bit.
So it makes sense that I love designing custom address stamps.
If you’re anything like me (Pinterest says there sure are a lot of us), you’re drawn to the something-extra that can transform what’s ordinary into something special. Things that reflect a certain amount of effort and care.
Anything in its best dress, anything that can slow the world down a little.
A pretty envelope has some superpowers, it turns out.
Because there’s that moment when the recipient turns the envelope over to see who was thinking of her. There’s a smile and the quick decision to open the letter right there or to wait and savor it in a quieter moment.
And, just like that, the day takes a long, slow breath and hangs back a little.
It’s lovely, every bit of it.
So if you’re working your way through your holiday gift list, consider a custom return address stamp from Bella Grafia. Several styles are available, or we can work on something new together. Each stamp is made from high quality rubber mounted on a wooden handle and will arrive with a black stamp pad in its own keepsake muslin bag.
(A custom stamp can also be used to personalize books or other belongings. Think beyond addresses, too. A stamp can be customized with any text of your choice.)
It can be difficult to find a truly personal and memorable gift, but giving a custom stamp makes it easy on you.
You might even want to order one for yourself. They’re irresistible like that.
