A Guide to Designing Invitation Cards

Designing invitation cards can be quite overwhelming. There are a lot of decision points when it comes to creating invitation cards, such as style and font, messaging, and images to use. Whether you’re inviting people to a retirement party, a baby shower, or a wedding, it is imperative to get the details right on the invitation card.

Choose a Theme

You can start by choosing a style for your invitation printing needs. If the occasion has a particular theme or there is some sentiment associated with the event, that will give you clues to the most appropriate style to select. There are a lot of options available. You can go the traditional route, or more retro if you like. The design that you choose should give people the concrete details about your event.

Consider Using Photography

Photography is seldom utilized on invitation cards, but when used appropriately, it can make a huge difference. To give your invitation a unique look, you can add photos to the layout. You can make it look very modern and fresh or even vintage. By choosing your photos, you can customize the invitation card and make it unique.

Align Your Text

Aligning your text on your invitation card is also very important. Central alignment of writing is most common unless you are designing it differently for a reason, such as to fit other elements on your card. The centrally aligned text makes it look more formal. You can play with the fonts and font size to make the card as creative as you like, but don’t throw in too many different elements.

Use The Right Colors

Color can make or break your card design. Choose a color that is not too bold or understated. Think of the theme of the event and choose the color accordingly, such as silver for a 25th anniversary. If it is a graduation ceremony, you can select the colors of your school. Also, don’t underestimate the high-contrast impact of monochrome designs.
