Cool!  How are you doing the wording itself?

Wow, that looks awesome! Is that your very first one? I ordered plates from Boxcar Press for my Save-The-Date Cards and invitations, and I almost gave up when I first tried because I could not get them to come out correctly!

I can’t wait to see your invitations when they are done!

@BoiledPNut: Yes, I did see that (that’s actually what convinced me that I could make my own).  But I am pretty impatient =)  I finally gave in and took more time to make sure my ink was evenly distributed on the roller.  I did eventually figure it out and my Save-The-Date Cards and invitations looked good! Are you using all silver or will you be using other colors as well?

@BoiledPNut: Both! I ended up ordering ink from Boxcar based on an online pantone color chart – the colors were definitely not what I was expecting! I was able to use the “light purple” as my dark purple.  I bought a lot of ink I ended up not using (and because they were custom, they were pricey), so I ordered the rest of my ink (light purple and gray) from Lifestyle crafts.
