Many Mitzvah Moms have sent in this great tip! It’s for that final touch after you and your Mitzvah child agonized over the “just right” invite. Custom postage stamps add a personality to any Bar/Bat Mitzvah invitations and it is something the Mitzvah child can create.
There are plenty of companies that offer this service, and one of the most popular sources of custom stamps is Zazzle.com. You can use your own photos or personalized monogram or pick a hobby that the child is involved with.
We suggest going to the Post Office with your complete invitation to have it weighed properly. Then upload an image of the correct size and type, apply it to the postage stamps and you’re done! Zazzle.com service is free to use, and all you need to pay for is what you order; they ship within forty-eight hours.
