Finished these last night in Illustrator. My fiance is iffy about them, but he’s iffy about everything! I want to use vistaprint to get them made into magnets for our guests to hang on their fridge doors. I want to send these out soon because we’re getting married on the Friday before a long holiday weekend and I don’t want people to make other plans and not be able to attend!
What do you think? Would you enjoy getting this in the mail? [attachment=382594,49745]

Sorry about the lack of picture for a few minutes there! I was having computer issues. You ought to be able to see the picture now!

I think they look good! My only suggestion might be that the color of font might not be readable against the picture of the boat.
If it were me, I think I’d make a rounded rectangle shape that’s the color of the bride’s dress and put your information in there.
I could be completely wrong, though. Maybe it’s just the size of the image that makes it look difficult to read : )
It’s a really cute picture, though, did you draw that, too?

I LOVE these! Whimsical for sure. And I highly reccommend Vista Print. I did my wedding invites and other party invites through them. Although make sure you search for online coupons first – They often have 50% off plus free shipping.

@dachshund- maybe if we lightened the color of the text to a white? Or if we bolded the text? i don’t want to go the white box route (my FI suggested that too!) because I love the picture and don’t want to cover up a huge amount of it. As for the picture, I did not draw it (my skills do NOT fall in painting/drawing! i leave that to my artist sister.). I found it…somewhere…months ago and saved it because it was whimsical and romantic. It is actually a tiny corner of a larger picture.

@stine_white- If you can use MS paint, you can use Illustrator! I’m self taught. My first two attempts at invites were….scary! I actually was sobbing at the end of my first try. However, I presisted, read some tutorials, and winged the rest. i can’t do too complex of stuff, but I’ve taught myself enough to make invitations, STDs, and RSVP cards! You can do it too! 🙂
@poli2b- thanks! i’ll def look for coupons first!

I love these! Please don’t cover up those awesome waves with a box! ^_^ I agree, maybe a lighter color for the font? White, gray, very light blue…? Great idea for STDs!
