I have been waiting for the longest time to create my STD’s because I really wanted to use Fiance and my e-pics, however he is taking his time arranging the photo shoot with the photographer. So I saw this GREAT pic of the aquarium (where our wedding is beeing held) and I jumped at the thought of using it. The design is completly different than what I had originally had in mind and I am needing some input from the hive.
The color of the writing –> is this gray the appropriate color or should i do white?
Placement —> Are the placement of all the items in a decent location?
My plan is to have this STD as a magnet (it’s 3.5×3.5) and place it in a card that gives a little more information to my guest. If they trash the card so Bee it :o) lol

I think it needs a little something more…it’s just very simple. The picture is nice but it’s quite obvious that you just put it into paint or something and put some words over it. I know that’s what you did, I just think it needs something a little different to look really nice.
Maybe a different font? Or leaving the picture without words and having a border at the top and bottom with the info?

I think that’s a beautiful picture and is a little spin from the typical engagement picture that people use, but I agree with PP. The first thing I noticed about it was that I didn’t love the font. It just doesn’t seem to “go” and looks a little amateur-ish, if that makes sense.
Edit: About the color, if it were me, I’d do white. But I’d have to see how it looks to really know what looks best.

There are only 2 things I would change.
1. I don’t like the placement of “are getting married”. I know this would put it over the museum, but I’d put it directly below your names with a centered alignment.
2. I’d stick to like 2 font sizes. For me, the date is too large.

I’m not a huge fan. I think the aquarium picture is pretty cool, but it doesn’t look like a STD to me… it looks like an ad for the aquarium. I personally like the Save-The-Date Cards with the couples picture on them a lot better. Plus, I find it hard to focus on any one part of it since the writing is all over and kind of blends in to the background.

I really like it! I agree with previous posters that you can experiment with different fonts a little bit. Dafont.com has a lot of free fonts to download.

What is the size and resolution of the photo? You’re going to need 300 DPI for it to print crisp.
I would recommend adding the words in photoshop or illustrator – and using a different font.
You could even maybe make the background photo sort of faded, like its at 50 percent opacaity. That way the focus would be on the text and not the photo… but the photo would still be there.

Thanks for all of the input and advice. It did take some of what you Bees said and made it my own. I created a new post with 2 other STd options. Please take a lot at them and vote. Thanks! :o)
