    I actually read it as Lindsay and Je (but when I go back I definetly see Lindsay and H also). I would probably suggest finding a different font that isn’t so curly so that it is easily readable, or just using the Lindsay and James. I think I’d like to see it with the dots also – J.C., if the dots were close enough to each letter vs evenly spaced between maybe it would look okay? J.  C. ?

    Can you choose a different typeface? There are plenty of lovely scripts out there. The swash on the C overlapping the J is a little awkward, but to be fair, I didn’t see H until I re-read your post.

    Is he so against putting james on the invitation? If it has to be JC, then I like #3. You can actually tell it’s a “C”.

    @PetraArkanian:  In these options, I like either 3 or 6. Periods if you use/like them, but I think without all of the swirls it makes it easier to read.

    #6 with the periods is the only really clear one. I suggest another font.

    I could tell it was JC. But I love fonts and am in graphic design so I’m used to looking at a lot of fonts . I totally understand your concern though, on second glance it does kind of look like an H! My fiance doesn’t go by his first name either, and I would feel odd putting that on the invite. Would your designer be open to shortening the top swirl in the C? I have done that before by rasterizing the letter and erasing the part I didn’t like. But I think people will be able to tell no matter which one you pick, they all know you. And it says further down the invite “james c”. So I would say go with your favorite!

    @PetraArkanian:  I’d choose either the 3rd or the 6th option from your second post.  All the others look like H’s to me.

    I like the top right corner as an alternative to the sample that you first picked!

    As a designer I can tell you that your designer should be able to blend the style in Illustrator-as in take the bottom of the one C and the top of the other. This is not that difficult to do.

    As someone who goes my initials as my first name (L.T.) I like the initialed ones the best.  Especially the right-most uncurled one.

    @PetraArkanian:  Of the six you posted, I think the top right is the best, because the two letters are clearly separate. I think that’s the one you should use if you want to stick to JC. 🙂
