Can we see the rest of the invitation to see how it looks next to it?

I don’t think it’s a horrible colour (I’d call it peach)  but I agree with pp – it’ll be easier to judge it next to the rest of the invite 🙂

It’s not that bad and it’s only the RSVP card. TBH I wouldn’t worry about it!

I still don’t think it looks too bad tbh 🙂 your could definitely have ended up with a worse colour lol.

 

As for the something missing… I think that it would have been nice to include one or two of the swirly motif things on the front of the rsvp card (would have given a bit more unity). But I also think that it’d be hard to adjust at this stage (a stamp or sticker just wouldn’t be the same).

 

Honestly, it all looks perfectly lovely as is so I would try not to worry about it 🙂

I don’t think it looks bad at all, but I don’t think it looks blush, either. It is definitely peach. Not really a big deal, but if they were mine I would be harping on it too just because I’m so particular.

@MochiBride:  Can’t you go to the printer and tell them it didn’t work? or did you print at home?

When Staples screwed up the colouring on my invites I told them this was bull and they had to re-print (they turned my blue to a grey with a tint of blue) took a while but they eventually reprinted them wiht the proper colour.

I think it looks nice!  Very clean lines, which I like a lot.

Where did you get the dimensions for the card layout?  I downloaded a template at Vistaprint, but it’s pretty much left half of card for text and right half for address.  Yours the address area is less wide than what I have.  I’d like to do that also because my RSVP stuff is so squished, but am nervous that it would be a post office problem.

I found this site with more info on dimensions for card printing, but it’s a little difficult to understand:

http://www.expresscopy.com/postcard-specifications

  • Postage/Indicia: 1.625″ x 1.375″ anchored from top right bleed corner
  • Bar Coding: 4.875″ x 0.75″ from bottom right bleed corner
  • Addressing: 2.875″ x 1.625″ from top right of Bar Code

I do wonder if your “Adults only” text might be overwritten by the post office barcode.

I think it looks absolutely fine.  The only (slight) concern for me is the word postcard written kind of sideways.  I don’t entirely understand why the word postcard is there and it seems to be cluttering the response card.

Are you trying to convey that the guests should put a postcard stamp there? If so, you can just state please place a (24? I have no idea the denomination cent stamp here) in the actual postage box, which I think would look a lot cleaner.

@MochiBride:  I think it looks nice as it is.  We made our own and look similar to yours, you could do something like this but for RSVP cards rather than Wedding Invitation:

Oh, and if you are reprinting anyway, I think you can make the RSVP date smaller.  That way it also will fit on one line, and you will get more blank space which might make you happier with the RSVP card overall.  But please don’t go crazy – I don’t think anyone really notices the RSVP card unless it is truly awful (and yours looks perfectly fine)

@tlj390:  Did you print your own RSVP postcards? What size were they and what paper did you use?
