I’m hoping someone can help me out. I know nothing about vectors or photoshop or any of that. But I have managed to design an invitation in Publisher that I plan to upload to Vistaprint.
The only problem is, I don’t have a proper vector (?) image for my invitation. I really really want/need a tree, with or without love birds. I’d love to have one with our initials in it, but that is way over my head. The one I have is not a good quality and it’s REALLY noticable on the PDF of my invite.
Can anyone please help me out??
I would be so happy if anyone could help me find something resembling any of these (although the first one is by far my favorite)!
Thanks in advance!

- Wedding: August 2013 - The Liberty House
What I did was print out a low quality picture that I wanted to copy, trace it on a piece of paper in pen, and then scan it into Photoshop, where I colored it in. It was super high quality, and you could even draw in the letters for your names.

i found the fourth invitation on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/112189782/the-giving-tree-wedding-invitations?ref=shop_home_feat
also, do you know anyone who’s handy with photoshop? if so, you could doodle/trace the image you want, and then have someone scan it in and trace it for you in photoshop.

Have you tried Printable Press? They do the designing, send you the electronic file and you print them up.
Also, have you looked at Zazzle? They have hundreds of invitations like your examples. Dont get scared by the prices. They go down depending on how many you buy. For example 1 invitation is $2.15, 50 invitations is $1.61. I ordered my invitations and response cards from here and was happy with the quality.

@renmich88: Zazzle is having a 50% off all cards right now. That means 50 invitations are only $0.80 a piece or $40. You cant beat that price!

@renmich88: Here are a few FREE downloadable options:
I used this person when I was helping my (now) SIL with her invitations. If you want to change colors or even have her design something for you, additional design for the RSVP card, etc the fee is pretty reasonable (something like $25).
I got the electronic file from her then used catprint to get them printed.
ETA: if you only need a high res clip art image, it would be $4.

Thank you all so much for your help!
Since I plan to use Vista Print post cards, only the image is needed. Wedding Invitations total $10 that way! 🙂
@emstar168: That site is AWESOME, Thanks!!!!
