Yes! Please! The only thing you have to keep in mind is that the acrylic pocket is fragile; BUT if you take care of it your apron will have a long and happy life. Heat and cold are the culprits, so you can't put your apron in a dryer or iron the pocket. Machine washing on gentle cycle and then laying it out flat to dry is the best way. Each apron comes with a card that has washing instructions on it.
Good, sturdy materials. The body is 100% cotton and pretty heavy; it has a nice feel; soft but sturdy. The utility pocket and the trim are a lighter cotton and have a little more softness and flow to them. The clear pocket is a thick, sturdy acrylic that will last a long time if you take care of it. All of the seams are double-stitched and the stress-points are reinforced. Think of your apron as a tool.
I print them on medium weight card stock (65 pound seems to work best for my printer) and then I laminate them BEFORE I cut them (I use a pouch laminator with 11 1/2” x 9” pouches – that extra ¼ inch is nice – see below). Then I cut them down the middle LENGTHWISE first, then stack the two halves and make the five short cross cuts. That is all the cutting that is necessary. If you leave the excess lamination (the ¼ inch) that comes out on the top and bottom of the card; it adds a nice tab that makes the cards really easy to get in and out of the pocket.

No big deal. Hang it in the bathroom while you take a shower and the tulle will pop back to its fluffy self.
