I was just thinking that I would want to do my own gold foil if possible! Do you know where it’s possible to get a decent priced press?

I think DIY invitations are always worth it because they will turn out just exactly as you want them to. I wa planning on doing DIY, they were going to have our own personal touch, were going to come out just as we wanted them to, and at the end it was going to come out cheaper or even the same a if we would have bought some nice ones. However even if we still have about 10 mos we figured that it was going to be very time consuming at the end people are going to throw away the invitations anyways. so in reality we decided it wasn’t a good idea in my case. we have many DIY that we are doing, and fitting those in as it is is pretty hard. so why spend even more time on something that  most people really dont care much about 

 

Anyway if you have the money and time do it!! they will be worth it.:)

@Cheekyduck:  Have you done gold foil on your own before? I just designed my own invitations and sent them out for a quote on gold foil for the top motif and our names and got a quote of nearly $800 for 100 invitations. So, we are completely rethinking doing gold foil. But if the process is simple enough I’d like to try to do it on my own. My only worry is that there are many small details in the motif that might not be picked up by a novice printer.

If you enjoy making cards and have a high standard for it, do it yourself. You’ll have the matterials to use them later on future cards (maybe Baby Announcments!) and you’ll have a lot more pride in the invites and feel better about it.

@Cheekyduck:  I don’t get it, did you cut that out by hand or does a machine cut it out???

Either way, that is ridiculously awesome!!!
