    They're ok. No one will probably really care if the handwriting isn't perfect/professional looking : (17 votes)

    They're really not good. You should probably try to find another option and start over. : (5 votes)

    @red_rose:  If you really don’t like it, do you have friends that has handwriting you like?  Maybe the can help you.

    I love the white print on black cardstock.

    Honestly, so long as they’re legible, no one is going to care. At least, if I were your guest, that would be my only concern.

    I have awful handwriting so I feel your pain.  I think they are OK.  As PP mentioned, do you have a friend with great handwriting?  Fiance addressed our Save-The-Date Cards because his handwriting is great.  I have also mentally listed other folks that I can ask for help with this type of stuff because calligraphy is not in the cards.  Maybe you can do the same?

    Those are fine! Don’t worry about it, people will be grateful they won’t have to squint at illegible calligraphy :).

    I don’t think anyone will care. : ) If you try and work your printing/handwriting into other elements of the wedding, too, you could pass it off as a theme — I know that there’s tons of fonts on the .Net that are designed to look just like that, so I’m sure no one will scoff at it.

    If it really really does bug you, you can either trace the letters from a font you like, or bribe a friend with good handwriting to do it for you.

    Don’t sweat it. Nobody is going to make a scandal out of your perfectly legible printing, I promise! 🙂
