Content details


We're looking for a letterpress wedding invitation and response card design that is hip, trendy, and feminine. If it comes out of a clip art book, it's not for us. We own all of the Dover books and several other royalty-free books, and we are branching out to a more modern (yet still conservative) look. Please use the sample text below: ----begin text----- Mr. and Mrs. John Smith Request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter Sarah Ann to Mr. Robert Adams at six o'clock in the evening Saturday, the thirteenth of May, Two Thousand and Nine The Garden Club Los Angeles, California Dinner and Dancing to Follow --end invitation text------- Response Card Text: --Begin Response Text--- Your reply is requested by the tenth of April. M__________________ _Accepts _Regrets --End Response Text--- File Requirements: All art will need to be provided in Illustrator or EPS format. Colors should be spot colors based on the Pantone Solid Uncoated book. No more than two colors should be used. No Photos on the invitation. We will need to know what fonts you use when we get the file from you. Bleeds are welcome. No screens. All colors should be 100% opacity. File Dimensions: Invitation: 5 x 7 inches Response Card: 3.5 x 5 inches If you go out looking for some inspiration, please look at letterpress designs only and respect others' copyrights.
