I'd still like to hear what you guys think, especially the ones who are making a living shooting weddings.

This is the outside to an 8.5x11 trifold brochure.


And this is the inside


I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Hi Mike,

I've been thinking about printing a similar brochure. Your images are beautiful, and should appeal the the bride (or her mother).

One thing I noticed is that some of the text is a little difficult to read, not enough contrast with the background. That might be a good trick for the price sheet! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Thanks for the feedback. Which text is hard to read? The stuff on the left of the inside portion?

The fact is I could read all of the texts hard. Its always hard to find good fonts for a dark background. The letters are too close to each other, so as the words. And that two things behind the text are too bright.
The first thing was when I looked at the image to try to realize whats behind the text. And I started to read the text after that. If you would like others to read your brochure make that easy. Try to choose a thinner font without foot. You have great pics to stare at. Remove that 2 things behind the texts, couse those attract the eyes.

I'd say both text blocks are tough to read. I agree with Cserdan's comments about the lightness of the image and also the width of the font. Tweaking both might make the text more legible.

I may not be the best eye for this. As I age, everything seems to be kind of a blur anyway!

Hmmm....I sent a reply earlier but it didn't post? So again, I can read all the text fine and the brochure looks very good to me but, on the inside page there is some large writing or something, "Ghosted" over the images that I can't make out.

Hope this helps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Actually, both texts on the left are two crowded, maybe have to say less, it's a lot to read and the backgrounds are not pure black. Also, the photo on the top right, of the roses, is confusing around the hands. I can't make them out and it bothers me.

This is separate from my other post and is just about the text. You need an editor. Just the first line is enough to clue you in: quote, Your pictures (and so on...) are priceless, AND SO IS OUR PHOTOGRAPHY. unquote. Is that the expensive impression you want to leave? Just drop that last phrase. Of course that's not all, but as an editor photographer I would rewrite both paragraphs and cut the words in half. Just hitting them with a bigger hammer doesn't really make more of an impression, it just bores them. I'm interested in wedding photography but I couldn't read all of either paragraph before my eyes got tired and bored.

Are you saying I should change the first line to read:

"Your wedding day memories are priceless, and so is our photography."

instead of

"Your wedding day memories are priceless, just like our photography>

I don't understand why the top one is better than the other.

Or are you saying it should read:

"Your wedding day memories are priceless."

Wow, drop the entire second paragraph on the inside? I'll have to find more efficient ways to say what I', trying to say.

Thank you so much for the input. I really appreciate it.

Mike

the image on the VERY front is distracting how it cuts off so abrutptly. make the inside font with the number stand out more.

also maybe consider white. i know black stands out but production costs will be extremely intense.

also, if amde in photoshop. gor for the STRONG anti alias on the fonts, instead of soft (which it looks like it is) this will amke printing look better.


just a few random thoughts
