    If you did a wedding brochure with Vistaprint...what font size did you use? What font is too small? I have so much text and information to put in that I keep changing the font and it keeps getting smaller and smaller. Any tips? Did you use an 8 font and did it turn out okay?

      8 is too small, use 12 if you can

            I think mine turned out great and I agree it was very difficult to decide what data to put in them. I don't have any pics of them since I'm at work, but I do have the image from online. I used 12 pt for most of the info and 22 pt for the headings. One the page with the bride and groom at the top the orange font is 16 pt. Also the dotted black lines are just guides and aren't printed on the brochure. Hope this helps!

              I love your brochures!! They look fantastic!!

              Were you able to cut / copy / paste the picture from vistaprint? I've been trying to figure it out (so I can have a PDF example like yours) but haven't been able to yet.

                Thanks :) I did a print screen then cropped the image in paint. The images were too big for BDW so I put them in a .doc to post. I'm sure there is a better way to do it, but that seemed the fastest to me...
