Not only are postcards cheaper than sending a card in an envelope (hello! 28-cents!), I personally love postcards. I collect them from places I visit or friends send them to me. So, yay for postcards!
Designing for yourself is quite challenging at times and I could have gone on forever designing versions of our s/d cards. Luckily, it is important to Big Spoon to participate in this process and I took his opinion into consideration from beginning to end. After all, they are "our" s/d's. I have to say, starting out in the "gathering" phase, I really thought I would do vintage-inspired, swoopy-loopy calligraphic invitations and paper products. However, that isn't Big Spoon's style. He actively hates calligraphic typefaces and thus, compromise ensued.
I'm happy with how they turned out and I'm hoping to carry the 10.10.10 design through to our invitations. I may not get to do that classic typographical "Hatch" look, but typography will certainly carry the invites. Woo hoo!
* the real ones don't actually say "little spoon & big spoon" :P
