so…. it’ll just be totally blank? except that one line at the top?

Will you be addressing and stamping the other side?

My worry would be people choosing alternative means of responding – i.e. through facebook, email, text message, calling you, etc. instead of returning the card.

I’m assuming you’re also including stamped addressed envelopes, for the notecards to go in?  Mine were sort of like this– Kindly respond by xxx at the top, but then I also had Accepts___ Declines ___ at the bottom, with plenty of space for a note in the middle.  I will say that some people found them confusing– we got a lot of blank cards that were checked Accept on the bottom, but didn’t have any names or note written in the middle.  If you do it this way, I would definitely recommend that you pencil in a small number on the back, so if you get a blank one back, you will be able to tell that #42 is actually Aunt Agnes.

I can’t decide if this would be confusing or not.  We had people write on our cards even though we had a line for names on them.

I know that’s the old school way to do reply cards, but I think you will confuse alot of people.  “Ok, I need to reply…uh how?”  The easier and more fool-proof you can make it the better.  Create spaces for people to write the information you need to get from their response.

I got one like this and blogged about it since I thought it was random. I think it’s fun if you’re going, but try writing out nicely that you can’t come… “Thank you so much for the invitation! Unfortunately we have to regretfully decline…” Then I feel like I have to write why, and thank them again… it’s horrific. I prefer having check boxes and then space to write a note. Then I’d check no and write “Wish we could celebrate with you- can’t wait to see pictures!” or something like that.

Oh yea and I’m pretty sure we might have forgoten to put our names. That’s also awkward… you have to kind of sign it? Or write in 3rd person?

I think it could be confusing for some people.  Unless you know your audience very well, I think it’s safer to go with a card that is more self-explanatory.

I don’t think I’d like it.  Sorry.  I think you probably want to make things easier on your guests, not harder (or “forcing” them to write stuff.).  I could check a box, or write a number on a line.  But if I get something where I’d have to respond like I was writing a thank you note, that would probably annoy me a little.  In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if guests knew they had to put work in their response, that they’d put it in “the pile” to do later.  Might get lost in the shuffle that way.
