Stamps

We want to incorporate our little man, Kingston, somehow in our wedding. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed at the hotel so physically including him in our big day will not work. So, off to other ideas!

I want to make custom Kingston mailing stamps for our invitations. So, we need to figure out which picture would be perfect! He is a very photogenic pup!

Kingston had hip surgery last month and is still growing his hair back on his back two legs. Let me tell you how hard it was to hand him over....go and visit him....and pick him up the next day. We were emotionally exhausted!! Well, he is not recovering too well and me being a therapist..we have decided to take him to CARE rehab center in Santa Monica for physical therapy :) His first visit will be this Thursday and I am sooo ready for it to start! We hate to see him hop around..keeping his leg up and afraid of bearing weight. You can kinda see in the first 2 pics towards his back legs...his short hair growing back :( He looks much better now.

Kingston is known for his ears...we are leaning towards the one above..
Which one do you suggest for us to use for our postage?
There are two sites I have found to use: Zazzle.com or Stamps.com
Has anyone had any experience with either one?
Happy Monday!

The second pic is my favorite! I've heard a lot of good things about Zazzle.

i like the black and white photo! it will pop against your white or black envelopes and look very classy + uniform.

I like number 2, but love number 4 (the back of the ears shot)

I loooove that last pic! Zazzle has the best rates (and if you sign up for their mailing list they email coupon codes!). Shipping takes awhile, though, so be prepared.

Ahh so cute! I hope he feels better and that the therepy works well for him. Nothing tears at my heartstrings more than little doggies, especially yorkies :)
I love all of the pictures but I totally adore the 2nd one! I think it would look so cute on the stamp! Let us know which one you decide on!

I am a sucker for puppy pics so I think any of them would be great!

I love just love photo two but with your envelopes the black and white photo would be so great. Welcome to the wedding Little Man.
