What if the "yours truly" banner was gone? It seems oddly placed to me.

I like the banner. I think the whole thing has a UK feel to me. Makes me wish I could speak with a British accent. =)

I love this. Very reminiscent of our Luftpost letters here in Germany, too. Hehe.

Thanks everyone for your comments. Sara, I like the idea of the banner, and it can be customizable. I also toyed with it at the bottom of the name as a "title" or something. Like: Benjamin Endicott, -Secret Agent- or -bad ass- : )

Can't critique it when it's just perfect. Mission accomplished!

I love it! perhaps it's my monitor, but the back ground looks quite dark and gray. maybe lighten it a tidge? excellently executed concept!

thanks again everyone-- Leslie, the background is supposed to be a neutral grey tone, I've had this issue before where my neutrals/creams look too light or too dark for different people. I suppose I would just leave it up to Minted to tweak the color for their press.

This is really fun! I like that you've strayed from the classic envelope design and infused yours with a little sass. Very fresh :o)

This is great, Sarah! Nicely done. I can see this being used for a little boy as well, a future politician. :)
