I too have been asking the question, where does one get those illustrations?? I checked your recommended resources and didn't have much luck. With so many gocco wedding invitations on sites like flickr, & esty I would think there would be more resources! Any other ideas? Thanks!


Like I mentioned earlier, a lot of the designs are drawn by paid illustrators or are done by the artists themselves. If you're having a hard time online, I definitely suggest looking through a vintage book shop for antique botanical engraving books. If that doesn't work, or you don't have one near you, why not try Ebay?

You don't have to use photopolymer. Magnesium and zinc engravings are often more easily available and are usually about the same price. Many engravers will mount them type-high for you at no extra charge. My local engraver, Valley Graphic Arts Engravers in Sacramento, charges me about $85 for an 8 x 10 mounted type high. remember to gang your invite, return card etc. all on one sheet and cut apart later to save money!
