Favorite Tool: Embosser

October 2nd, 2009 @ 12:32 pm by Kim @ Inspired Goodness

Without a doubt, one of the best desk accessories I have is a custom made address embosser. I originally purchased it for stamping my return address on my wedding invitations, and ever since it has left a beautiful mark and lasting impression on any correspondence I send.

I actually have two embossers in my arsenal - one rectangular and the other is round. Since we recently moved into a new apartment, it has now come time to update my plates.

Figured I should share some of the places I found online that will sell you the plates, since the embosser itself can be used indefinitely.

For rectangular plates, a great choice is Paper-Source. They offer address plates with 15 font choices (Filosofia anyone??) for $31.50. Looking for a motif or a custom monogram? They also carry a line of circular plate designs, all for the same $31.50 price.

Wilshire Graphic Press offers replacement plates as well. You can choose from their list of standard typefaces or email them a font of your own choice for a $10 surcharge. If you want to provide them with custom artwork, the charge for replacement rectangular plates is around $45.

Good luck!

What a stylish idea for return addressing.

Where did you get the actual device?

I also bought an embosser for our return address on the invites and I love it! It adds just a bit of elegance and simplicity to the project!

Oh what a great idea! But the mister and I won’t be settling down for awhile (he’s still in grad school) so we still might move around a bit and I’d hate to be changing plates all the time! But they’re beautiful!

Thanks for this! I was just thinking about what font I would want for an embosser! This gives me all the help I need!

@alvina: A good and more economical alternative might be an address stamp. It gives the same effect without the cost.

I get my rubber stamps from Simon’s.

Oh, I would looooove one of these — but I suppose I should wait ’til we settle down somewhere and get a REALLY permanent address. :-(

Custom made address embosser is quite a bigger thing in value to leave a unique impression , while your beloved ones or business partners receive your post. All links are useful for me , now I will also be able to use carved home address, its easy now !!!!

There’s just so much here, I’m overwhelmed. I’m all for whatever contributes to a unique impression. (no pun intended.)
