These can be found at the stationery store or where you are purchasing your invitations. Another option is to purchase glue sticks to seal the envelopes.
If you are going to use cards and stamps, you might consider creating your own stamp. You can make these stamps online and use your engagement picture. It’s fun and it makes it very personalized.

This will save you money since you will be printing them yourself. You can be real creative when you design these. You can include a picture on the paper and include any other personal details you would like.
