Space invaders birthday party invitation

Six (6) passes through the press for this one. (only the best for my boy!)
Printed on Somerset Waterford 100% cotton rag.
Fed through black lazer printer to print text.
lets call it 'Hybrid Letterpress' My b&w lazer printer is a very inexpensive model ($99 from Australia Post) so my thinking is that most people would be able to imprint onto these. I haven't tested on an ink jet yet.
Of course there is the option of hand writing onto these with a felt tip pen my handwriting is terrible so i didn't bother.
Registration was challenging. Perhaps I will consider this when designing anything again. Things in lines with polymer plates prove to be slightly more time consuming. Although 6 passes may have had something to do with it...
Ill definitely re-print these but use only 2 or 3 colours to make them more economical.
