Hey everyone!

just just posted "party invites" today and now im posting this to get some feedback. Im trying to start my own stationery business and i just started playing with my klic n kut machine and using the pen tool. So everything is my own design and uses ink from various different kinds of pens.

Here is a few pictures of the first wedding invite i have done. I just want some feedback. My niche is the process of how its made. When your holding it in person, it looks more special.

you can comment on the design, ask me questions on the process, anything! anything to help me get better!













Also, What do you think of my photo skills?


thanx!

They are beautiful.

Note: "Your Invited" should be written "You're Invited"

I think they are beautiful, although I would love to see them in person to really get a feel for that process. I do feel like the type on the invite is very tight, and becomes a little hard to read. I little more leading and maybe a slightly smaller type size could help. Just give it a little room to breathe. But beautiful. Have you done the full package (invite/envelope/RSVP card/etc...) Adding a thank you note for the bride to send in the same style is a nice touch too. And are you going to address the envelopes? I only ask because I would have LOVED that when I got married.

came in here to post that!

I love the lettering and can tell that it probably looks amazing in person.  I also love the simplicity of the design.  It looks beautiful, yet not overcrowded.

 Tongue  I'm a big stickler for spelling....the front of the card should NOT read:  Your Invited....it SHOULD read:  You're Invited.  (You're=you are)

I have not done the full package yet. This is only a mock up. I was just trying out a few different things for my business that im trying to start. If i decided to do wedding invites i would definitely do the full package, its a lot easier in the long run for the bride.

I was thinking of doing a package of some sort of stationery for free just to begin my business.


I do agree about the type being a bit too close and maybe to big. I also thought that i could maybe have the bride and grooms name in a script font and the rest in a sans serif font. That could help it become less crowded.

I also noticed that the pics i posted seem to look different from the actual card. The file is very big and i think it shrunk it in an odd manner and it makes the lettering look a bit off. I need to learn how to fix that.

I appreciate everyones nice remarks!

I agree that the leading is a little tight, it also seems a little uneven in places. For instance, the bride's name is really close to the line about it but the groom's name has a bit more air.

Is it because I have a waffly nose?

The writing is beautiful and I love the simplicity of the invitation, your focus is drawn straight to the writing. The colour scheme is gorgeous too.

Personally though I think there's too much writing ... maybe just have 2pm instead of two o' clock in the afternoon .... I can't speak for everyone, but I usually skim the cards for the where and when ... maybe if you left a gap between the parents and the location?

I hope this helps and was seen as constructive rather than criticising.

I took it as constructive, so its okay Smiley

It looks like there is too much writing, but it appears that way because i did it on a smaller card than usual for this type of wedding invite.
I guess this size could work for different wording. So in conclusion the type looked squished together. Ill be sure to do a follow up with another design to see what you guys think.
thanx!
