This seems like such an easy thing to do on your own, but I’m already having trouble!
Anyone want to help out by sharing what fonts you used, what format, and what you used to create it? Pictures would be even better. If it helps, I’m going for a romantic look, but any help or examples would be awesome. Thanks!

I’m planning on doing it, and I’m probably going to use Illustrator. 🙂

I did this, ours turned out great! I used a font called Decadentia. I used Paint Shop Pro by Jasc to make it. I put the S character on a black background, expanded the floating selection around it by one pixel, then copied and pasted onto a white background. This created a nice black border.

I used powerpoint to make mine. I haven’t used them anywhere yet. I used the fonts the we want to use other place in the wedding-Brock Script. Nice & fancy!

My friend used InDesign (shes a little more creative than me) and she blogged about it on Project Wedding : http://www.projectwedding.com/biography/list/lesliedigs/diy-designing
I’m having her do mine!
Good luck 🙂

So I made a silly mistake and uploaded my picture before blurring out our info, so MrBee kindly deleted my attachement. Here it is again, this time, blurried!

I did ours in PowerPoint and Word. It was super-easy. The picture isn’t that great, but we used it on koozies, towels, the invitations… Let me know if you need any help, or have any questions.

I used Photoshop because I can’t remember how to use Illustrator, but you could do it in Word… I’ll have to upload a picture later. 🙂 I used the font Porcelain for the last initial, and Palatino Linotype for our first names. I think if you can work with layers (or separate text boxes) so that you can move things around to where you want them any program should be fine.

Yepperoo! I made ours – I posted about it here: http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/09/25/soon-to-be-r/
I found a few that I liked online and then basically just imitated them. I used Abigail for the large R, Charlee for the &, and Californian FB for our names. You just need to keep creating different boxes so that you can layer them. Patience is definitely the key ingrediant! Have fun!

I used Inkscape (free Illustrator-like program) and the font is Monterey BT…

My sister made ours… They are here. Not sure what program she used – but she’s a graphic designer and she uses a Mac.
