For special occasions: printing personalised invitation cards

In today's digital world, nothing is easier than e-mailing a dinner invitation to friends or inviting people to your birthday via text message. But there are certain occasions that call for a physical invitation card delivered by mail, such as a round-number anniversary, wedding, confirmation and communion, the first day at school, baby shower or a baptism/christening. The corporate world, too, holds various occasions for printing invitation cards complete with beautiful envelopes and mailing them to business partners, customers or employees, such as the upcoming company anniversary, annual Christmas party, summer festival or open day. No matter the occasion, printed invitation cards make and impact and create a sense of delightful anticipation, sparking interest already when opening the card. A high-quality paper stock paired with an awesome design will create a perfect look and feel for your invitation cards that deliver a unique experience for the recipients and make sure they attend the event. Recipients of themed cards boasting a tasteful layout that is in keeping with the event often like to keep the cards popped up on their desk or pinned to the fridge long after the event. Wedding invitations from dear friends are a prime example of this.

I do! Printing personalised save the date cards

Once you have decided to design and print your own invitation cards for the next event, you have to get started with designing the layout and the content. The most important information your invitation should include are the purpose of the event, the time, the place, who is celebrating and possibly special instructions. There are no limits to your creativity when it comes to designing invitations. But there are some restrictions that apply to your artwork. These are specified in our online shop on the product pages of the card in question. Depending on the event, you may choose a subtle, fancy or even whimsical design for the front page. But it is important to keep the design of the outer and inner part balanced in terms of colours, fonts, images and design elements less is often more in this context. Cursive fonts are very popular for festive events such as baptisms & christenings, company anniversaries or birthdays. There are also many gorgeous fonts which are ideal to create romantic wedding invitations that exude elegance and class. When printing business invitations, don't forget to print your logo, slogan and your complete company address on the card. Adding a contact to answer questions is useful and makes it easier for the recipient of the card to contact you.
