helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Last summer I bought a Print Gocco, an adorable little at-home screen printer from Japan. It’s a bit of a process to use but easy to get the hang of and so much fun. Great instructions can be found here and here. After practicing on a few thank you cards I put it to work on our programs.

We designed the entire program on Adobe Illustrator, but you can easily do the same in Microsoft Publisher or even Word. The inside pages we printed on our home computer. My fiance and I had an assembling party over a glass of wine and the DVR to put it all together.

To incorporate our “vintage travel” theme, we made our programs look like passports. I found various international stamps online which were scattered around the inside pages. We included 8 pages that covered everything from the ceremony and wedding party to a few fun places to visit between the ceremony and reception. I think they turned out pretty well. What do you think?

Now that our wedding day is almost here and our guests will finally experience all the details first hand, I can reveal more of them on Budget Savvy Bride. I am looking forward to seeing how everything comes together and sharing them with you readers! When I come back, I will be a MRS! Wish me luck! :)

    They look fantastic! Can I ask Becky, where did you buy the Gocco printer?

    • Becky

      The one I bought was from Etsy, but there were also a few on Craigs List and Ebay. They can be pricy, but definitely look for one that comes with extra screens, bulbs and ink. Replacing those are expensive but finding printers that have extras and don't cost much more was easy.

    Thanks, everyone! They were a hit yesterday :)

    I fell in love with Gocco'd invitations a year or so ago when I first got engaged! I wish I could find one reasonably priced. I absolutely LOVE the travel-inspired invitations though. They look awesome!
