First of all, let's consider home uses:
Easier to work with than peel and stick address labels
Self-inking and standard models are available
Use on books, DVD's, or any other media to ensure return when lending out
Everyday envelope usage
How many books have you lent out only to forget who you gave them to? Putting your stamp inside the front or back cover will allow the borrower to get it back to you. Or in case you leave it on a bus or in a park, it may get returned if anyone finding it has a way to locate the owner.
When sending out birthday or other party invitations, personalized address stamps can save a lot of time in filling out the where the event will be held section, as well as the return address on the envelopes you are sending out. Not to mention that your personalized address stamp will make the invitation look that much nicer!

Then there are small business uses:
Order forms–You can have personalized address stamps made for your small business and use it to imprint your business name and address on your standard order forms, which saves a lot of money over having them printed.
The back of your business card– The stamps can be made to say anything you want them to in a four line, set amount of character fields. You can have one made to convey a special message to potential clients to imprint on the back of your cards.
Business Stationary– This can be expensive to print up, and with computer printers you won't need it for the letterhead usually, but envelopes can be tricky to run through a printer. Stamping is every bit as effective and attractive when used on envelopes.
While peel and stick labels are available in a wide variety of sizes and styles, the look they give to your small business documents is less than ideal. Having personalized address stamps to imprint your documents makes them look much more professional, increasing the chances they will be opened and read by the recipient.
Saving money, time and work, these stamps can generally pay for themselves in ease of use alone. Self inking styles and standard stamps with ink pads are made to order by many companies, so finding one that is a good fit for your needs is as important as the stamp itself. They are not all made the same, as some will cut corners on the quality of the end product just to keep the prices low. So be aware that, as always, you get what you pay for.
Whether for business or personal needs, personalized address stamps can be just the beginning. Many companies also offer custom logo stamps and craft/hobby stamps. And adding a seasonal look, or logo, to your business documents can make them a bit more personal for the recipient.
