Try to create a similar one yourself or find  similar one your can use for free. I think $89 is way too much for a font.

HECK NO I don’t think it’s worth $89, unless you’re a printer/graphic designer.  It’s actually kinda hard for me to read, too.

Honestly people will just be throwing the invites away.  Save money where you can and make sure the older folks can read it 🙂

I would not pay $89 for a FONT!  That’s crazy.  You can get hundreds of FREE fonts online.  And trust me, although it might not be identical to the T of this font, I bet you find one that looks just like it for free!!

I have over 400 fonts downloaded on my PC that I have been playing with for my DIY invitations/labels/extra projects.

And on a side note… this font is a little hard to read.

@PoeticDoveInLA:  This font is really beautiful when used in small doses. It couldn’t be the body of the whole invitation, but maybe just their names?

LOVE this font. It is a bit much if used all over but for names or certain things it would be great. I’ve been trying to figure out the font used on my address stamp and this is SO close!

It’s pretty but I think it’s hard to read. I don’t think most people would notice if you chose something similar that was free, so if I were you, I would probably save the $89.

I can not even read that.  Avoid!

I feel the same way about Carolyna Pro Black.  I don’t even know how to use Photoshop and other design programs, so it’s probably pointless for me to buy it…but even if I could use them, $89 is a lot for something I’d just use to make some signs.

It’s SO pretty, though!!!  WANT!!!

That is way too expensive!  There are so many free fonts, I know you can find something similar if not identical.  A popular one is http://www.dafont.com.

Good luck!!
