DIY Block Printing: Homemade Wedding Invitations

To save money and impress your guests, try making homemade wedding invitations. Linoleum block printing is a perfect project for novice crafters.

Not only is taking a hands-on approach to nuptials a great way to save money, but it allows brides-to-be everywhere to showcase their own personal style. Organized by wedding theme, including Sand & Sea and A Touch of Country, “The DIY Bride: An Affair to Remember” includes themed projects for save-the-dates, invitations, favors and more.

With so much mechanized and homogenized perfection, it’s so refreshing to give and receive items that look and feel handcrafted, like these homemade wedding invitations, made with block printing.

Be extra-careful when you’re cutting away the linoleum. Always carve away from you.

Carefully roll the inked brayer onto the surface of your block. All of the raised areas will accept the ink.
