    in number one, I feel like the font is too hard to read and scrunched together. especially for the important details of the STD. I voted for number 2!

    @cranraspberry:  I voted “#1” beause the script font looks handwritten, and I prefer that they both match more. I would voted #2 if the script font was a little more polished.

    I love this! I prefer #1 because the typeface is more interesting, but agree that it’s a bit tough to read. Can you adjust the kerning and maybe bump up the size just a bit? If you go with #2, maybe you could use all caps instead? Something about the sentence case seems off to me. Either way, the finished product is going to be amazing!

    Looking forward to seeing the new mock ups! I think Gill Sans (light) with the tracking set to 100 looks nice… I used it for my STDs and it was easy to read and looked pretty polished (at least I think so!).

    @cranraspberry:  I chose the second option. The sharpness and rigidity of the Serif font as opposed to the handwriting seems to better balance out the font which you have used for the date (curvy, flowing, romantic – and beautifully reflects the decoration at the top).

    The handwritten font just makes it look sloppy/wobbly and seems to clash with the date font and decoration.

    @cranraspberry:  Might I also recommend that if you do decide to go with the second option, that you write the names in capital letters and put an ampersand between them? I think the way it is, it looks like a subheading and not a heading.

    So instead of:

    Olga and Justin

    try:

    OLGA & JUSTIN

    You could even do the “&” in the same colour and font as the date.

    @cranraspberry:  No worries 🙂 and the bunting template with the handwritten font sounds pretty! Good luck with it and let us know how it goes – if you have any more design questions feel free to ask away. I love that crap.

    HI! I was just wondering what is the name of the handwritten font and do you have a link. I have been looking for it everywhere 🙂 thanks
