Wow, these turned out really great!  How long did each invitation take to make?

oh my word… these are absolutely insane.  Amazing job! I would love to be a guest at your wedding to receive one of these in the mail.  What did they cost you to mail?

Did you use paperbacked wood veneer? I just bought some 1/42″ thick red oak veneer off of ebay to try making invitations similar to yours (just with a different theme!). I asked the guy I bought it from if he thought it would work going through a printer and he didn’t think so. Apparently, he thinks the ink will run on the wood and that the wood will not feed through a printer. He suggested I get paperbacked veneer. But I decided to stick it out (since yours worked!) and bought it anyway! Oh well, if it doesn’t work it was cheap enough that it’s not a huge deal. But again, I absolutely LOVE your invitations and would be disappointed if I can’t get something similar to work! Smile

Just curious, what size did you make your invitations? I see your boxes are 7×5. Are the invites the same size or more like 4×6?

Where did you get your shipping boxes from?

How did you secure your box lid once you were ready to ship? Do you have any pictures of the final box with the stamp on it?
