If you have a special event or birthday coming up, chances are you’re thinking about ways to make it a little more special. This year has been a weird year, with many things being postponed or downsized, so we need all the more reasons to celebrate. Party invitations are the first impression of the party, a great way to get your guests excited and to ensure that they lock your event into their calendars. Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect 70th birthday party invitations or even for a first birthday, here are my top 4 tips for making a memorable birthday party invitation.
1. Go For Custom
Like most things, customization provides that extra bit of personality to your invitations. It means that you can pick something that will reflect the theme of your party. When you’re investing the time and money into custom party invites, it can be a little nerve wrecking. You want to make sure everything is perfect. Basic Invite actually offers customers an opportunity to order a printed sample of their design before placing their order. That way you can see how it looks in person, how it will print and the feel of the invite, too. This is a great way to ensure that your invite is exactly how you imagined and to make any necessary tweaks before going ahead with the order.
2. Consider Foil
There’s something so beautiful about foil on an invite, the added texture, shine and color really is something else. You can choose between the three main foil colours, gold, silver and rose gold, ensuring that there is an option that works perfectly for your design. This is a little detail that can make a big impression on your invite.
3. Use an Invitation Maker
Most reputable birthday card printing companies have an invitation maker. It’s a platform on their site that allows you to quickly and easily create custom invitations without worrying about how to navigate a complicated program like photoshop. If you’re trying to come up with ideas for your invitations, the invitation maker will serve as a great starting point to get you inspired.
4. Don’t Forget the Envelope
The envelope is the first impression your guests will get about your party. I always suggest either choosing a complimentary color envelope to your invites, or one that will nicely contrast it. I also suggest choosing envelopes that are peel and seal, because when you have 10s or even 100s of envelopes to close, this small comfort will make a huge difference. It’s also much more hygienic during these times.
Celebrating your birthday or that of a loved one is a very special time. Hopefully these four tips allow you to craft the perfect invitation, to ensure your celebrations start right.
