If you have a birthday party coming up, you will need to write up some birthday invitations for your guests, to remind them of your special day. Birthday invites can also serve as souvenirs for your family and friends; this is why a carefully crafted birthday invitation is important. You can create your own birthday invitations or use the services of a professional. Below are some ideas you can follow:
Choosing the Perfect Style
Birthday invitations should perfectly illustrate the theme of your party. Choose the right colours to blend the style and layout. Look for sample templates online for ideas on how to design the invite, what colours to use and what information to request. You should also think about the type of paper you will use; there are some materials that are not good for printing graphics or images. If you are hiring a professional to do the invitation, take a look at their samples first and check the quality of their products. They should be able to customize the design according to your requirements.
For a children’s party, you can be more creative with colours and shapes. Make your invitations bright and colourful. You can also use the birthday boy or girl’s favourite cartoon characters like Dora, Sesame Street, or Sponge Bob.
Keeping It Simple
You should keep an invitation simple and avoid unnecessary details. If you are considering images, place them carefully around the content to maintain the quality and layout. The usual information included in birthday invites is: location, date and time, attire, and other details, such as maps, and gift registry. You may also include an RSVP, with a contact number, the date and your name.
Some people tend to overlook the wording. Wording can either be formal or informal, depending on the party’s theme. Remember to write the details clearly. If you are having a themed party, include the dress code details and write how you want your guests to dress up. Some celebrants would request their guests to don up like Hollywood stars, fancy costumes or from different era, etc.
You can also include a gift preference in your birthday invitations. If you’d rather have your guests donate to your favourite charity, write that on the invitation.
Making your own birthday invitations is a fun experience. It can also help you save money. If you do not have time to create your own birthday invitations, many companies can do custom printing for you. If you want to be a bit more practical, you can make your invitations online. Some printing companies allow you to completely customise your invites online and will have them printed and delivered to you.
Choose the best one that will suit your needs and style and check out their packages. There are companies that provide discounts when buying in bulk. Compare their products to other companies before you make a decision.
