I had enough, but barely.  It depends on a few factors. For example, I needed to mix colors to make a shade of coral so I used a lot of white (mixed with red and yellow).  How many invitations are you planning on making and how many inserts is in each invitation?  Is there one color you plan on using a lot of?  If so, I would stock up on a extra tube just in case, cuz the last thing you want to do is not have enough ink to finish.

I don’t remember the exact amount of ink I used for just my invitations alone, but this is what I was able to print using 2 tubes of black and pink ink each.

60 Save the Dates
60 invitations with 2 RSVP cards and 4 inserts
50 menus
75 thank you cards
600 coasters
50 "share your photos" cards

and about 3 fully inked screens on masters that didn’t burn very well and were trashed.

I agree with Lovebird, just get an extra tube just in case.  I’m sure you’ll find something else you’ll want to gocco in your colors.

it also depends on the design too.

 

areas of solid color take up ALOT of ink.  Use the ink blocker that comes with the gocco, it helps save ink by not letting it spread too much.
