Figuring out Fonts

I realize I’m being fully ridiculous here, but I really want an address stamp.

Custom stamp via My Clear Stamps on Etsy

And if I’m going to get an address stamp, I may as well choose a cute font. And it may as well be the same font we use on the rest of our paper products. Although it would be silly to design everything else to match a stamp. So obviously I should choose the font I want to use for the paper products now, so I can put it on the stamp and then everything will match and unicorns will dance with puppies on rainbows and all that. That, or no one but me* will care.

I think Feel Script is super pretty.

Although Shamrock does not like “swirls,” so this free option below might be a nice compromise. (Still pretty, not as swirly.)

And this one is also super pretty:

I tossed out a few other options because the capital “M” was ugly (we’re three-quarters M over here, so it’s kind of important). Which clearly makes me even crazier than I already was. Yay me!

Did you get a stamp? Are you laughing at me right now?

*Patently untrue. Designer friend B will totally care, and BM Blondie will notice even if she doesn’t really care per se.

    I desperately want an address stamp, but since Stallion and I are pretty much guaranteed to be moving in the next two years, I’m doing my best to wait until we’re more settled :( But I’m going to go ahead and say you guys need one! Feel Script is gorgeoussssss.

    I want one, but I can’t commit – I have a terrible time choosing fonts!!

    I impulse purchased our invitations (the design was so pretty) and am now kicking myself that the font doesn’t match everything else. At Mahogany Script is nice, and free is always great! I’m a total sucker for Carolyna Pro Black, but we ended up going with Coneria Script (http://www.dafont.com/coneria-script.font) for everything.

    Good luck!

    @MsGinkgo: Haha! Update: I did commit, and now I’m not sure :/ Go figure. But whatever, its still pretty!

    @_Adelaide_: Shamrock hates swirls (he insists no one will be able to read it. Really? Is that an actual thing? Even on our names?) so I’m trying to find a pretty one with reduced swirliness for him.

    I am also using a custom stamp, but my font will be Burgues. :D

    At Mahogany Script is what we used on ALL of our wedding stuff and I still use that font today if I need something pretty :-)
