About the Design

comments from the designer:

Vintage in every way. A small piece of cotton paper, torn and tea-stained against a historic topographic map from 1919. Typography inspired by vintage printwork adds the last element of antiquity in the design. Perfect for a wedding at a historical venue. The couple can easily customize the map with their own image.

Love this, Sydney! One thing though, there are no last names and there is no parents line so that might be confusing for some people.

I think this is so beautiful, the typography and texture. The only suggestion I have is to make "Join us...." a little smaller... it over powers the names a bit.

Lovely in every way, Sydney! Love all the details and thought you put into this. Exquisite! One tiny thing, I don't think you need the o'clock for the half hour.
