Is this an okay birthday invite?

I made it in Adobe. Just something simple. Am I missing anything? Anything need changed in your opinion?

Also, eco/naturally speaking talk to me about a fun gift on a budget [$25 or so]. WAHM stuff, new stuff, whatever Unique things...etc.

My youngest turns 2 in two weeks. I'm just not sure what to get him.

I think its really cute!! Your guy is adorable!

The only thing I notice is that the black font is a little hard to read towards the bottom. I love to make our party invites and I am equally critical of myself for weeks after I send them.

If you did this in photoshop, you can add a glow filter to the text. I usually put on a little bit of glow + shadow to help the lettering stand out a little more.

Can I make a suggestion? If you want to make the black font more readable, you should do your font with a white outline around the black. Alternatively a black outline around white font. Try it out and see how it looks! Otherwise, I think it looks great!

Re: Is this an okay birthday invite?

There's a black drop shadow on the text right now. If you made it a white drop shadow, it would read much easier.

If you cut out around your son, and selected the area behind him (the brick wall) without selecting him, you can add a Gaussian blur to it, and knock the background out of focus... it would make the text even easier to read.

If you will be getting these printed anywhere, I would account for the outside 10% in every dimension to get cut off. With this as a guideline, the "A" of Aaron would be lost completely.

Good luck!

I agree about the text and also I would put all the wording all together in one spot so the picture could be used for more than just an invite. PM me and I will give you an example.
