I created a 3D anaglyph headline (see enlarged image) to play on the idea of triplets. Is it distracting or interesting/humorous as I had hoped? My hope was that "OMG" would be read as "Oh Em Ge" so it rhymes. Does it work even if it's not read that way?

Super cute idea! How about using a tagline like: "Seeing triple?"

When I first saw the photo it just looked blurry, only after enlarging and seeing your explanation and the comment Tania made below did I understand and then loved it. I think Tania's suggestion of adding "seeing triple" makes it all come together. I love the idea!

No I like the headline and the saying. It's fun. The drop shadow or underlining tone of light brown is nice. Its soft and gives dimension.

I like it. It's a cute way to announce triplets, and I like the palette.

I kind of like it but it's kind of busy... maybe only have it on the OMG or the numbers?

I like it! Not sure if this would be to much, but have you considered having a tiny silhouette of classic 3-D paper glasses in place of the hyphen between the date and the year? You could have the earpieces extend out to lengthen the glasses similarly to the hypen... just a thought--but I really like it as is! :)

I like the concept and your colors, but I think the two colors of the headline should be tighter (I don't quite know how to explain this...) and then it would be easier to read.

I'm a fan of offset printing but it's hard to read. Is there a way to make the text clearer?

A little hard to read. Makes me squint my eyes. ;)

I like the concept you are going for but as others have mentioned it is a bit hard on the eyes. You might try looking for a font that has three elements in the design of the letters . . like a triple outline perhaps. You could make each outline a different more intense color to get your point across.

I am going along with everyone else on this. Please Update the idea for the headline. I get a headache looking at the three overlapping colors. i feel like it is blurry the more I look at it.
