Invitation Madness

I've been so busy lately, I think I may have accidentally stumbled into the business of invitation printing. I bought my Gocco purely as a hobby, but I've been printing non-stop since December, mostly invitations for friends.

First one was for the birthday party of the mom of a good friend with a retro-funky theme:

I printed the text in my trusty old computer printer because I was afraid of using Gocco for text but the rest of the designs are Gocco-printed. I cut out the felt circles and affixed them with a grommet to lock the invitation flaps.

Next was my bestfriend's wedding invitation. They're fun enough to pick the photo stencil design (I was secretly hoping they'd pick that, so yaay!) and the rest, they gave me carte blanche.

I chose a scripty font for the text and gold ink -- I fearfully printed it using the Gocco this time, to great success -- on white parchment paper. This one turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself (heee).

I have another wedding invitation project in the works, I'll post it here when I'm done.

It's super fun to Gocco!


  1. Thanks! I had so much fun making them :)

  2. do you know how the photo was made? I want to use my gocco for my thank you cards using our engagement pictures. I've been playing around with photoshop but i'm really nervous to try it.

  3. May I know where did you buy the gocco in manila?

  4. Hi,

    I got my Gocco from a local supplier. Check her out at :)
