    I like the first one better. I think they look great, though. Some suggestions:

    -Change the font. Not the script font, but the comic sans looking one. It doesn’t really match your script.

    -Be consistent in your fonts. Use 2 fonts, but not 3. Use 1 for script (like you did your names) and another for other details. 

    -Place a border on your photo to make it stand out on the white paper.

    -Consider doing a color background- all purple with white or black lettering is nice. Or just use more color accents.

    @Earlybride: It would be a lot of ink. But, if you print them on 3X5 or 5X7 photo paper at walmart or walgreens, it wouldn’t be too bad! I would suggest getting them printed somewhere like that, if it isn’t a drain on the budget. They come out glossy and prettier looking, plus it’s faster than home printing in my experience. Walgreens often has coupons online for free photos, look out for them! If you don’t want to change the background, I would definitely add more color somehow. Possibly on the border of your photo, or do a color border around the whole STD. Colored corner borders would also be pretty- something like this, but in color:

    I like the first one better, but I agree with pretty all of TheLionQueen’s suggestions.

    @Mrs Sarah McK: that is a great idea! I didn’t even think about it. 

    -OP: You could also consider mounting your STD’s to purple cardstock. That would be pretty!

    #1 is my fave; I like all of TheLionQueen’s suggestions,too. Mounting it to purple cardstock would not only add more color, but also dimension!

    These look great! One other thought I had was to remove the http:// in front of your website- I think it is assumed and then maybe the site would fit on one line?
