copper head gaskets

just been chasing good price on set mercury 135hp head gaskets,

does any one ever run copper aftermarket ones,
being a tight wad and having a nice shiny lazer sitting at bay i could digitise my existing removed ones and replace with a nice copper type at the right thickness, just curious do people every run such a set up,
any thing to save cash plusss i love messing,
