Thank You Card Design

Now that our pro photos are back, we have to order our thank you cards ASAP. It's already been a month since the wedding, and the VistaPrint order might take a couple of weeks to get to us, so... I think if we get them all out by the end of August, we'll be in good shape. That's my goal.

Anyway, for those who may be wondering... I'll be posting many of our wedding pictures soon. I need to wait to get the DVDs from our photographers (which will happen tomorrow), because right now, all the images I have access to are low-resolution for the web, have a watermark, and would really be a big pain in the butt to save and post. It'll be much easier once I have the actual files in my hot little hands.

Plus, I was thinking about it this morning, and since there are so many pictures that I want to share, I'm probably going to post them as a series... a different part of the wedding each day. For example, "the girls get ready" on Day 1, "the guys get ready" on Day 2, etc. It'll be like... wedding week or something! So prepare yourselves. :)

For right now, I need your help. We need to choose between these two card designs. Exactly the same, except for the color of the "Thank You" part. I can't decide. The white background? Or the black? By the way, the photos here are stand-ins. I have to swap them out for the real ones once I get them tomorrow. So the pics will be of better quality, and won't have the watermark.

Penny for your thoughts. (OK, not really. But help a girl out.)

Look good?

Looks Great! I vote the black background. Personally, I don't like thank you notes to have the words 'Thank you' on them.

Have you tried with just pictures?

They look great!

I think the white looks "cleaner" and more classic ... if that makes any sense :)

I vote for the black background.

Heather said...

My goodness. That is a tough decision. Normally I would say black background, but I would go with white on this one only because the black gets lost on his tux in the top left picture.

Lindsay said...

I vote for the white. They both look good though. I cant wait to see the picture "series" yay!

Elizabeth said...

Looks awesome! I vote for white because the black blends in with the tux too much.

Abbie said...

They are both great... but my vote is for white!

The White! Agree with pp, the black is getting lost in the tux picture. It looks awesome though!

Amy said...

White..the black blends with his tux and the white looks much crisper :)

Sarah said...

i love the white. the black looks too much like it's blending into your hubby's tux!

I like the black, and I don't think it looks like it is blending in with his tux enough to make a difference.

White!!!! It looks much better.

Alicia said...

I prefer the white background. I also think the black blends in with his tux too much.

Megan said...

I vote for the white background, black writing

Love it! I only wish I could make someting like that! I vote for the black, I like the way to looks against the bottom picture, even with the tux being black I still like the contrast of the black.

Minivan Mom said...

Gorgeous! Wow, you made a beautiful bride. And I love your bouquet.

I like them both, but I think I prefer the white slightly more.

I like the white background. If the pictures were black and white the black background would be better, but the white with color photos is cleaner.

My vote is black background. I just think it looks sleeker and more sophisticated.

Personally I like the black. Esp is your dress will be right up against the "thank you". I will be doing a similar desing but my FI and I will actually be holding signs that say "Thank You". Cant wait until wedding week!

Dana said...

I like the white. It jumps off the page a little more. The pictures are pretty.

Jen said...

I like the black... Very pretty!! :)

The black makes the photos pop. The white 'washes' you out on the two L photos.

Def. the white!!

Deanna said...

I say the White Background. :) Looks cleaner, more in theme of the wedding.

LYNN said...
