*bump*  If you find anyone that’s done this for their invitations, can you post a link back here?  I’ve been thinking about this for a while, but I don’t know if its really feasible or not.  It seems like most blogs that mention it try it once and never pick it up again.

P.S. This is for my cousins wedding in June, mine will be in February and im going with different design.

Here they are! After working 6 long hours, myself and my cousin got 150 invites done today. We are both so happy at how they turned out. Tomorrow or Monday we will be doing the RSVP cards, Menus, and Receptions cards. 🙂

@His Lil SantosGirl: These specific ones were a little over $100. It was able to fit all the wording for the invites, menus, reception card, rsvps, and we added more wording for dessert signs and a monogram.

@pixiedixie862: I love how those turned out! I’m planning on making my Save-The-Date Cards with the L Letterpress machine in a few weeks, so hopefully they’ll look that great.  I do have a question: what kind of paper did you use, and where did you get it?

*bump*  I wish I had the creativity to do this!  I can’t even talk myself into breaking out my Gocco.  I’d like to drool over more pics of your invites though. 🙂
