The Evolution of Save-The-Date Postcards (Part II)

Last time, I blogged about rounds one and two of our save-the-date custom design process with stationer and gocco-master Sarah Parrott. 

It was on round three that Sarah sent us our winning choice. After round two, I sent her a list of what I wanted to change (which wasn't much). Our main debate was over color. We had her replace some of the yellow with shimmery gold and then some of the shimmery gold with chestnut brown. In the end, we only ended up with a tiny bit of shimmery gold and mostly brown ink. Without further ado:

We worked from PDFs up until we actually received our order which made it difficult to actually imagine the postcard in-hand.

That said, here she is on Crane's Lettra paper. The two colors on the invitations are brown and shimmery gold ink.

We ordered vintage stamps from eBay, which I'll elaborate on next. There are so many ways to find vintage stamps--and you can even get them at face value (plus a couple of dollars for shipping).

How many rounds did it take you to get your save-the-dates right? Were they what you expected when you received them?
