So, let’s face it. Not all of us want to search high and low for a Gocco – especially since they are no longer in production. And, well, not everyone has the resources to have a ton of custom cocktail napkins printed.

Julianne Smith, better known as The Garter Girl, recently held her launch party a few weeks ago. She wanted custom cocktail napkins, but didn’t want to pay the price. Stephanie at Couture Parties clued her in on a little secret:

Rubber Stamp

So, how does it work?

  1. Design (or use your logo) a custom graphic and have a custom rubber stamp made.
  2. Buy cocktail napkins in the quantity and color(s) of your choice.
  3. Buy rubber stamp ink.
  4. Begin stamping away – allowing plenty of time to dry!

A big congrats to Julianne for her launch. If you are not familiar with her garters – go check them out now! (I have featured her work in the past, because, well, she does awesome work)!


  1. Thank you so much for featuring my little DIY napkin venture! They were fun, easy to do AND saved a ton of money. No one knew the difference! Thanks again!!

  2. I love this – so simple and chic!

  3. Great and easy to do!! This could be a crowd pleaser at even the smallest of dinner parties 🙂

  4. I did this, but I actually embossed the stamp onto the napkin.

  5. What a brilliant idea! I’m totally saving that for when my lil’ sis gets married!
