To Do: Shower Invitations

To Do: Shower Invitations

I’m happy with the way my shower invitations turned out last night. Random weeknight craft projects are fun!

I made the design using a stock illustration of the San Francisco skyline and a Futura font for the text. Then printed it in black and white, made a photocopy on the old carbon machine they thankfully still have at Safeway and created a Gocco screen. The final result was ten invitations and a bunch of extra materials that I can use for placecards and a menu card.

I liked the design so much that I covered the red lettering and ran an extra six to serve as notecards. I’m going to offer them to my friend Nicole to use as moving announcements.

    I used Pingg to send an electronic save-the-date for the shower last month.

    For my own wedding save-the-dates, I had them letterpressed.

    What size of cards are these printed on? I have trouble printin on my Gocco anything larger than 3×5. After that, the edges don’t get “picked up” on the screen. Have you ever had this problem?

    Anyone know if you can still buy a Gocco. There seems to be a wait at many places… Emily, where did you get yours?

    I bought mine from a private seller. PaperSource has them with a wait.
