Fussed with small copy a bit. Attached is a monogram version, what do you all think/prefer?? I;m a less is more type of person, sometimes to a fault so feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

I like it without the monogram, personally. I feel the same way as you about L=M, Stacey.

ok, I've added a photo thanks to Katherine's catch. Now the question is blue version or white one below...??? And of course any other feedback appreciated :)

Love the colors + simplicity! Both versions are really nice, but I think I like the blue border better. That little notch at the top swayed me - I think it's cute! :)

I like both, but am leaning toward the blue border. Just a thought...what about making the half circle at the top a smidge larger and putting a monogram ("H") inside?

I agree with Lori–love that little notch at the top. The smaller text (Class of and Congrations...) is looking a little thin and cramped. Is there a heavier weight that you could maybe kern out a bit? Otherwise, it's looking good!

Would love some honest feedback, it's still a work in progress. Not sure how I feel about the wording. Should it be more of an invite vs. a grad announcement only. I am torn. Also, border or no border. Any suggestions for improvement would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I love the way the 2012 pops, and I love these colors, but I just was re-reading the submission guidelines at it said that photos must be included...I don't know how strict Minted is with the guidelines, but I would hate to see such a nice design disqualified!
