Birthday Invitation Etiquette: Whether you’re planning a birthday party for your little one or having a party for adults, invitation etiquette is the same. Make sure you know what to put on your invitations and when to send them to everyone on your guest list. Another thing to remember is invitation information: date, time, guest of honor, anything the attendees should bring, dress code and the method for RSVPs. The general rule in timing is to send them out approximately eight weeks in advance, or a little less for a child’s party. Before the big day, plan ahead and order your personalized thank you cards for after the party. Shutterfly has a huge variety of many charming options, including designs that perfectly complement your invitations. With many modern and vibrant designs, there is something for everyone.
Make Sure They're Legible: As you consider colors and patterns, don't forget about the text—the information you put on the invitation is the whole point of sending it out in the first place. Your stationer can help, but, in general, avoid light ink on light backgrounds and dark ink on dark backgrounds. Yellow and pastels are tough colors to read, so if you're going with those, make sure the background contrasts enough for the words to pop, or work those colors into the design rather than the text. Also, be wary of hard-to-read fonts like an overly scripted typeface—you don't want to sacrifice readability for pretty letters.
Make it Grand: This is the most common way to design a wedding invitation. Every detail have to be very nice looking. And it mainly connects with the elements and printing processes adopted in the wedding invitation card. Some common elements that will be used are vine patterns in Victorian style, Monograms or even the word double happiness in the context of Chinese wedding invitation. These elements are used to create a sense of nobleness. To facilitate this sense of nobleness, process such as hot stamping, embossing, engraving and die-cutting will be adopted.
The décor may range from having fancy knots that are unravelled to reveal the words, to coming as origami creations that artfully unfold into an evocative message. Thanks to the rise of Geek culture, there has even been an explosion of invitations in the form of comics. With the whole potential of sequentially juxtaposed images unlocked to you, the depth of emotion that can be invested in the canvas of a blank sheet of paper will propel your invitation to the forefront of the popular imagination. You can match the theme of the invitation to the wedding, or you can be adventurous and have fun with it; your engagement is just the start of many celebrations! So pace out whatever you think needs to be said and march to a drumbeat that you alone can hear. It is your imagination and your wallet that make your card unique, attractive and beautiful.
