These new stamps reflect the organic style popular for today’s floral designs. Photographs of a boutonniere and corsage were used as the artwork for these chic stamps.
The Contemporary Boutonniere stamp is well suited for RSVP envelopes included inside wedding invitations. It is also a perfect touch for thank-you notes and announcements, in addition to regular correspondence. The 2-ounce Garden Corsage stamp can accommodate the weight of heavy invitations, oversize greeting cards, and mailings that require extra postage.
The flower arrangements in both of these designs create beautiful botanical presentations.
