scaled down my text to reflect how the file appeared when the bleed was included (so my printed version looks like what everyone liked in Version 6) - sorry for my faux pax!

good choice Kim, I definitely prefer the name in Futura with no border. I also think you are better off with filling the entire letter with the fishnet for the sake of the single and three legged letters. very clever as usual : )

Thanks for the feedback! Okay, here it is with the entire letter in fishnet...I had wanted it to appear as though the letter was wearing stockings; although this would solve mt dilemma of the three-legged letters, etc. Attached is the current version with the top of the letter exposed...

personally, I like it much better! It feels sexy without trying too hard. Not sure if I am totally digging the buttermilk for her name because it feels tight. Have you tried any other face and in 100% black? Just wondering.

I think I actually like it more w/out the border. Makes the letter pop!

I think I like it better without the border, too, and maybe the whole letter in the fishnet?

Will this still look goofy with round, single leg or three-leg letters? I really like it with the two-legged ones, though...
