Screen-Printed Thank You Cards

On Tuesday night, I printed our “Thank You” cards using silkscreen, squeegee and some medium red (looks like coral) water-based acrylic paint.

For those of you who don’t know what screen printing is- it’s a printing process that you learn in art school when you major in graphic design. It’s actually quite rewarding, if you’re into process-intensive projects. (Also, a good fallback if you’re using thick paper and have already jammed more than one of the printers at work.)

Since Gavin had a major shoot that day, we had cleared some furniture out of the bedroom, leaving the perfect amount of space to set out the paper to dry.

Thank goodness the paint was dry by the time Madison came over to help out.

Of course, I did my research and most wedding websites and blogs put the proper timing of Thank You cards for a wedding at between 1-2 months. I’d like to get them in within the one month. I’m optimistic but it may be a month and a week. Our photos are taking an exceptionally long time to arrive.
