After 2 months of torture, my invitations are finally ready!! My gosh, nightmare is finally over!!! Yeah!!!!
I made everything myself except the letterpressed front & back cover. I even trimmed the yellow stock myself!
cover & back cover – letterpressed by a local printer
insert – doubled sided printed by myself using gocco
map – digitally printed by a laser printer
envelopes – decorated with a cusotm-made embosser

Those are gorgeous.
The little tabbys that the cover has to hold the yellow card? did you put those in or did the card come with those? Or is it some kind of hole punch?

Fabulous job! 🙂 I totally DIY my invites and can appreciate the amount of work that you put into your invites! I also used a mixture of letterpress and other print media to cut down the prices. I.LOVE.LETTERPRESS!

I need to know how you did those corners too. Awesome job!

Yup, I just use a crafty punch for the corners, they are low cost tools!
For letterpressing, I am lucky to be a designer and the printer is willing to do a barter of service with me. She printed my job and I gave her some illustration to use for future job. How cool is that?! The cost of my invitation is around $1.70/set now.
I got the embosser in Hong Kong, so much cheaper(Sorry to say, but the price here is just a ripe-off)! Unfortunately this probably won’t work if you are living in North America, since the shipping fee is expensive.
