Invitations are a huge part of any event! Lets say you have a great party planned. Everyone and their brother is going to be there. There is going to be an awesome food spread including wings, steak, burgers, brats, and chips, there is going to be a live band playing just outside your door, football will be on the television, AND there is going to be a circus clown entertaining all the kids!!!
The day finally comes, the day you’ve been waiting for, the day of your Party! You wait anxiously as noon roles around and the guests are going to begin arriving. You have cleaned, prepped the house, cooked the food, and you are ready for this. Time passes by and it gets to be 12:30 and no one has shown up. Soon the clock passes to 1 pm, 2 pm, and at this point you are very discouraged. No one showed up to your awesome party you put so much time into. Why? You prepared perfectly, you cooked everything just right, so why? Did you invite anyone? Does anyone besides you know about your phenomenal party? It doesn’t look like they do.
Thats exactly what we are going to be talking about today. No not how to throw the perfect party, or cook your steak just right, but how to create, print, and get your invitations out to your audience. The process is not too terribly hard to go through, but once you have done it, and you see your perfect invitation to match your perfect party, you will be stunned and more than excited to send them out.
The Process: Beginning
The beginning is almost the easiest part! Everything we do at our shop is custom, which basically means, if you can think it WE CAN PRINT IT! You can take the theme of your event and turn it into an elaborate card that will blow people’s minds, or maybe you are doing a wedding and want to do something more elegant, for that you can check out our previous post on wedding stationary! Regardless of what your mind is thinking or what you feel is necessary, in the end it is all up to you and what you want.
The Process: Details
Details are KEY to creating your invitations! If you want us to get every detail correct, then you need to tell us every detail. Anything from what font you want us to use, to how many polka dots per square inch should be on the card. Just know that we always create proofs that you must approve for us to print. Lets say you’re creating a birthday invitation for your son or daughter and the theme of the party is Horses. Do you want one horse on the card, or 1000? Do you want a “southern” font or a “regular” font? What size do you want the font to be? How big do you want the actual invitation to be? All of these questions are some that you should ask yourself when you are creating your perfect invitation.
The Process: Envelopes?
Unless you have supplied your own envelopes, you are going to need something to put your invitations in to mail out! Now here is a little seceret, most people dont know this. When you order invitations through us, the envelopes come free!!! Now here is the catch, they are blank envelopes. So if you plan on addressing them yourself, they are perfect, but if you are wanting something a bit more personal, maybe to match the invitation, that will cost a bit more. Keep in mind, EVERYTHING we do is customizable. Envelopes are there to make your first impression on your guests before they see your beautiful invitations.
