Made these on Vistaprint for FREE! They’re postcards! I made the map using the powerpoint tutorials you can find all over the bee. I didn’t really want to put our website on our invitation, and we needed to include the map or directions somehow, so I thought this was a good way to do both.
I wanted something with wood grain in our invitation suite to incorporate all of the wood elements that we will have at the wedding! 🙂
I didn’t spend a ton of time on them so they might be kind of boring? What do you think?
(They’re already ordered so try not to be too harsh-lol!)

I don’t like the text box on the front of the cards- it looks like you just slapped a text box in there and called it a day. I think increasing the font sizes and making the background clear would look much better, help the font to stand out instead of just text boxes.
Overall, I really like the wood grain background and directions/map.

@BooRadley: I worried about that after looking at them again after I ordered them 🙁 I originally tried making the background clear but for some reason no font color I tried would show up very well on the wood grain background. I think when I first started out making them I was just thinking of them as a simple little thing I’d stick in there with some info on it that didn’t need to be gorgeous..but now I wish I would’ve spent a little more time I guess :/
I can’t do much about them now except maybe add something to them myself when they come. I’ll be rounding the corners so maybe that will help.
