Vintage Circus Party!

My friend Wendy is having a baby in November, so a bunch of us are getting together to throw her and her husband an amazing vintage circus themed shower/party/extravaganza. Invites went out this weekend. Photos of the party to follow!

This is a beautiful invite!!
I wonder if you could share the names of the typefaces you used?

Traci said...

Thank you everyone!!! I really appreciate all of the lovely compliments! I definitely had loads of fun making them.

Typefaces!

1. For most of the text I used "Phaeton" which is available at Veer.com. I loved working with this font...it has so many great characters!

2. The "Saturday September 19" font is "Quentin Caps". And the script is "Honey Script". Both are available for free from dafont.com!

3. The other serif ("wendy and irving are registered at...") is "American Typewriter" which came with my Adobe Font Folio.

Hope that helps!
