The post card is most likely copyrighted, what you’re talking about doing is illegal. You need check the copyright of any photos you use. And you would need photoshop to do this anyways. You can get a 30 day trial of photoshop for free, that’s how I made mine.

@asbtoabs:  You definitely need to contact your venue or whoever took the picture and ask permission. If the image is on a product that is in production, it likely has a copyright and it may be illegal to use the picture without permission.

Maybe you could get someone to take a picture of you two in front of the venue?

I know “STD” is a common acronym around here, but “DIY STD – how do I do this?” is definitely the title of the day, because I am an 8 year old.

Also, I have no useful information. Sorry.

@asbtoabs:  can you take a similar picture of your venue, then give it a sepia tone in a photo editing program to make it look more ‘vintage’? Then you could upload that to vista print or cat print to get them made. That way you wouldn’t need to fool with copyright issues.
