Hey dudes, do you remember way back when people used to have giant desks and write letters to each other all day? Major #fbf, I know. There are some of us out there that still practice this ancient art form, believe it or not. Though there’s the ease of sending an email or setting up a Facebook invite, there’s nothing that has quite the same amount of value as receiving a hand-written letter or card in the mailbox. For grooms, letters can be a great way to ask your groomsmen to be in your ceremony, to send personal announcements and for sending thank you cards after it’s all over. Stationery also makes for a mature, personalized gift for the true gentlemen in your life.

Surprisingly enough, there’s a lot of print options out there, with options to even have your own custom items. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite places for business cards, postcards, stationery all all kinds of other things you can use to personalize your letters.

    Sponsored Post DisclaimerToast to Your Wedding with iCustomLabel.comThe great thing about DIYing your own wedding bar is that you can make a trip to Trader Joe’s and stock up on some good ol’ Two Buck Chuck without any of your guests being any the wiser … except for the label giving away your thrifty little secret.

    Good thing iCustomLabel.com has got you — er, your bottles covered. Champagne, beer, wine, water bottles … if you can drink it, they can label it. Keeping that bubbly on ice until the toasts? No prob, Bob. They’ve got a waterproof label for that. Celebrating with Cubans and cupcakes? It’s cool, cigar bands and toppers are on the menu, too. Giving food as favors to your tired, slightly tipsy guests? Yep, they’ve got labels to tackle that job as well.

    Affordable, durable and gorgeous, iCustomLabel.com can help you dress up those bottles to use as gifts for your brigade or just leave your mark on all of your drinkable wedding goods.You can order just one, or you can order 500 (and the more you order, the cheaper they get).

    Add a special touch with a cute photo of you and your partner or print all the labels with your special wedding motif and your guests will be oohing and aahing over the design all while sipping their Andre.

    I am admittedly not the craftiest beaver on the block; and it's true, many a craft has beaten my ass to the ground and screamed in my face "Martha Schmartha, yo!"
