Awesome concept, but it's a bit hard to read. Maybe a less-flourish-y handwriting font?

Oh, I loved that font... but how about this new one... Still fancy but a little easier to read?

Very cute and innovative. I really like both fonts, but this one is probably easier to read.

although a bit hard to read, i preferred the old font. it had a lot more personality and voice than this one.

Ahhh, the great font debate of 2008. Perhaps when this wins (*crosses fingers*) you could have the option of a few fonts. I think it would even look great with an old school typewriter font as well.

I'm not really sure how this is considered innovative- it feels a bit like a recipe card to me

Ooooh a recipe card would be fun. Andrea, innovative usually implies that it is a new idea. I think because it is written as a letter to guests instead of just a list is what people are referring to. How many of the other entries are letters?

Kate on Sep 25, 2008 at 5:28pm

I love it. It would be great to calligraphy the guests name on the top and use as a placecard as well.

Kate on Sep 25, 2008 at 5:28pm

I do think that you should lose the border. It's too much.

I actually preferred the original version which had a different font and no border. I would love to be able to offer both options...

i do miss the old font, but agree that this would be easier to read... especially for older folks. i could take or leave the border...
