My partner and I (a fellow craftster) are planning on making our own wedding invitation postcards but are having a hell of a time finding the right types of photographs.  Specifically we are looking for 50s-60s era photos of women.  Similar o the stuff that Stella Mars or Anne Tainter uses.  We're going for some over the top picture we can put a witty caption on.  Simple invite, just a postcard with the picture on the front and the details on the back.  Found a site that will print what we want really cheap ($.06 a piece).

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Nannalexi, that's a great idea but I haven't got around to replacing my old scanner from 5 years ago. Surely they are online somewhere.  Ideally I'm looking for kitschy pictures of overly happy women or the cheezy uber happy couples of the late fifties. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take care,
