invitation design: i have a deadline.

December 7, 2010


I have a deadline for finalizing the design of our invitations:  December 31st.

I’m not sure I’m going to make it. The vast differences in the following designs may give you an idea of the span of my indecisiveness.

Here’s what I have so far:

Here’s what I had two weeks ago:

and my personal favorite part, the matching RSVP card:

MaryAnn (my maid of honor) classified the first one as “sort of like I’m going to a spa” – agree! Out.

The green one is a little too plain, so that’s pretty much out.

So now it’s between the movie-poster-looking one that will eat up all my computer’s ink,
or the first one I created (with matching RSVP card). The only real problem I have with the last one (the first one? ack, confusing) is that I can’t seem to match the color of the ink in Photoshop to the paper backing, so the printed versions always come out sort of weird, and I’d have to do a bunch more trial and error to figure it out. So frustrating!

Which one is your favorite?

    did you ever go see this one?

    I’d be willing to buy them for you. (that is if you like them) That way you don’t have to do all the work printing. And I really still do like the original one. If you have it saved in a e-file I could take it to my printer who does all our stuff for my office and see how it comes out. Bring the file with you when you come for christmas and we can pay my printer a visit!
