I’m really tempted to purchase a YUDU Screen Printing Machine (http://www.whatdoyudu.com). I’m planning on DIY a lot of my wedding projects. It’s currently onsale at Joann’s for $225 but the set only comes with the 110 mesh screen. In order to print on paper, I will also need to buy the 220 mesh screen ($28) amongst other supplies such at Ink, Emulsion, Transparencies etc. I’m a little hesitant since its expensive. Has anyone had any sucess using YUDU for their wedding invitation or save the dates or escort cards? I think we’ll have a guess list of approx 250 which means around 150 invites. Will the YUDU be a cost savings in the long run or a major headache with the amount of work involved? Do you YuDu? If so I’d love to see your paper projects and hear your reviews!!

@CantWaitToBeWed – yes that’s exactly what is this. Here are some links on what you can do with it! It does do paper and I’ll have to purchase the screen separately. But I haven’t found any examples of it being used on invitaions or paper….
@babyboo Thanks! I’m new to the beehive but I’ll try and find her!
I’d love to see some Yudu paper projects if anyone has any to share!

Hey ladies! I’ve found a couple of cost saving tips. you don’t have to buy ProvoCraft’s transparencies. I bought a 50 pack from the school section of Office Max for much much cheaper. Speedball Emulsion is paint-on and a lot cheaper too. And of course, don’t be like me and use the whole darned emulsion sheet for your project. Cut it down to size and get 2-3 per sheet if you choose the Yudu brand. Saves tons of dough. Just tape off the edges if they’re close and you’ll be a-ok!
