    Thanks!

     

    I used Photoshop CS4. 

     

    Fonts - the fancy Jaimee and Ryan, and the W in the quote is Vivaldi

     

    The smaller writing is Constantia.

     

    The "&" is French Script.  I had no rule for choosing fonts, and google wasn't very helpful. I spent ALOT of time changing fonts until I found ones I liked.  It was tricky!

     

    For printers - I don't have a colour printer at home, though I would imagine it would work fine.  I had initially planned on taking them to Office Depot to get them printed. However when I got a sample. I think their printer was low on yellow ink, as it printed terribly and the guy was not helpful at all.  I was really frustrated so I took it to work and did a practice print there.  It worked great! I went to go ask the secretary if she knew why it would be so different, and she offered to print them for me (free!).  She also had the heavier cardstock paper.  So these were just printed on a regular office type printer. 

     

    In hindsight, I should have adjusted the settings for the highest quality - but I think they still turned out pretty darn good.
