    Looks fine to me… it doesn’t look strange because its in all 4 corners, if it was just in 1 corner, it would be a differant story!

    I would assume something had happened in the mail. They’re pretty though! I wouldn’t worry about it too much!

    They’re really pretty, I love the font though I would think someone had a bit of ink on their fingers when mailing them.

    I would stick to the original design as much as possible. A professional designer used their skill to make beautiful designs. And that invite is gorgeous the way it is! That being said, it is totally up to u how u personalize, so if u want the look altered, by all means do what makes u happy because it would be awful to order invites and not be 100% in love with them. I had my design moved over and down on the flat card and the floral design on it also shrunk down to preserve the overall design ratio and balance and beauty, so that I could custom cut them to fit into a pocketfold enclosure better. so there’s nothing wrong with changing the design but I just think u risk the beauty of the design itself when u do that. And the ones u have pictured r already so beautiful.

    I think they really just look old or dirty, and I’d probably wonder about it. What’s the point of the smudges? To look… what?

    I think it gives it a cool vintagey look. Like old paper. I love it!

    I think they’re beautiful and the effect looks intentional — a bit like parchment. As a prior poster noted, if the effect were random and only in one corner, that would look odd. However, it’s clearly shown in all corners of the invitation. I would be hesitant to increase or decrease the level of intensity.

    I think they look great. Like a vintage effect. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with them!
