Well, we did it. In under two weeks, we screenprinted a couple hundred invitations on our gocco. There were nine screens in all, so I estimate about 900 pieces of paper printed, some twice! It involved one midnight redesign, a few wasted screens, some wasted bulbs, hours tearing paper, a few tears, and the help of some fabulous girlfriends. But we did it, and made our deadline of Brendan’s Dad’s birthday for the mailing.
Despite the amount of time (and the tears) I would do it all over again. The gocco is fantastically fun, and the result is unique and beautiful. How satisfying to press a little machine and pull out a pretty print!
I hate to even say it, but this little photo peek will have to suffice until after the wedding! These are our envelopes, which we purchased from Neenah (Antique Gray) and goccoed front and back with a flower print and the return address.
I love them.
Now, on to the programs! (Which will not be goccoed. I’m not a total nut – although, high five if you’re doing yours! You’re a braver gal than I.)
