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!

@mskalinin that looks awesome! I love how the colors and your monogram play so well off each other!

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. "Smile"

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.
