    @zoecn:  well it’s like buying hallmark cards, they have their logo in the back. It’s more than copy’s copyright, it’s advertising for them to get the word out. See it as you are helping their business. I don’t see it as a big deal. It’s in the back anyways.

    @zoecn:  I would absolutely have them remove it. Wedding invitations are no place for designer logos, and it would be a major dealbreaker for me. I have never received an invitation with the designer’s logo on it.

    The only time my logo is  ever on a client’s design is during the proof process when I watermark them. You need to have her re move them. She’s not a multi million dollar card company abd these are your wedding invitations.I have never seen any of my designer friends do this, nor have I ever seen this from another company.

    I have never seen this. I think she should remove them.

    If you have a wedding website or something and still want to give her credit, then I would offer to put “invitations designed by XXX at http://.com” on it. That is being more than reasonable.

    Darling Husband is a designer and I find that rude.  He puts his logo on if WE made the card to send to our own people, but not for a client.

    @zoecn:  my invites had a vera wang logo on the outter envelope, as well. I never looked closely enough to see if it was anywhere else on the invites. It was so small I doubt anyone noticed. I don’t see any issue with it.

    I would ask them to remove it, I absolutely wouldn’t be okay with custom-designed invites having the designers’ logo.

    I’m a graphic designer at a printing company and I have designed numerous wedding invitation suites in my day. I have never placed any kind of “designed by…” on a job at all. The only time I would do anything like that is if the customer asks for it (which they never do). And think it’s wrong that they automatically put their logo on it without your consent. I would ask them to remove it.

    We are using Arlene Segal and on the back (small on the bottom) it will say “An Arlene Segal design made especially for (bride and groom’s name).  I have no problem with this.  The invitations are not something printed offline and I like our guests knowing we put a lot of thought into our invites.  I think it’s fair that someone who creates an original design should be able to stake a claim to it.  If it’s something you just order offline and it’s nothing special, then yeah, I would say it’s a little cheesy and might look like you were trying to save a buck.  But if someone created a design and printed your invites and even put them together, then I think it’s just a symbol of how you went a little extra and it’s nice.  That said, it’s YOUR wedding! Do what you are comfortable with!
