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:
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
