I find the font difficult to read but that may just be me/my phone.

I like the water color type of design, but maybe change the font to either a larger size or a different font altogether to make it easier to read.

I agree that the small script font is hard to read.

I like the design! I usually like only two different fonts on invites.  I would consider using an envelope bc you will have all your info on it.  I’m a really private person though.

ms-tea:  I think it looks lovely!  How big is the postcard?  The website may be hard to read at the size it’s at.

ms-tea:  I think changing the fonts helps with legibility, but I would personally try to enlarge the original cursive font first or find a more legible cursive font. I like the cursive better than the print lol.

I, too, prefer the cursive font, but in a little larger size.  What program are you designing these in?  It looks like the fonts aren’t anti-aliased.  If you’re designing in Word, once you get the basic design down, you can make the design in Pixlr (it’s a free web-based program similar to Photoshop) so that the fonts can be anti-aliased (blurring the edges to make them less sharp and more readable).

I would personally try to find a different print font. It looks a little Microsoft Word-y.  Love the watercolor though.

ms-tea:  I think I can help!  I recently got married and I did all of the design myself.  I loved it so much that I just opened an etsy shop! So excited!  I’m still working on getting designs up, but check it out!  I’d love to do a custom order for you.  If you’re interested, please drop me an email on Etsy.  Love the watercolor btw!
