What Is an Invitation?

In a most direct explanation, an invitation is a verbal or written request to someone to go somewhere with or to do something with. Invitation has been the biggest part of party or celebration life, and it is someone thing that must be provided no matter what. Nowadays, a written invitation has been the most common used of form to communicate effectively to others; it is a tool used to communicate to people who are special to you or acquaintances about a special occasion which you hope for their presence.

A party without guests is never fun, and it’s lonely. The purpose of an invitation is to make sure that people are able to come to your venue conveniently as well as know the reason for the celebration. It allows your guests to come appropriately—meaning, you wear costumes for a costume party; bring gifts for a birthday party, bridal shower, baby shower, or Christmas party; or wear appropriately in black-tie events or weddings, etc.

What Is a Party?

Parties always have a reason. A party is organize in any special occasion or event that happens that calls for a celebration. In layman’s term, a party is a gathering of people invited by a host for the purpose of socializing, conversation, recreation, as a part of a festival, or other commemoration of a special occasion. It is usually themed with music, food and drinks, and sometimes people provides special numbers or programs for entertainment.

There are two common types of party—the table top party and the dance party:

  • A table top party is a party that surrounds during mealtime, whether it is over lunch or over dinner. It is gathering of people that either brings food to share (usually called a potluck) or food bought from an establishment. It allows everyone to enjoy the food as they mingle around with each other, talking about daily life happenings or just gossip for fun. This kind of party is usually for community team building or family reunion.
  • A dance party would be the most popular type of party. It usually involves more on the drinking, dancing, and music side of parties. Some snacks are served that can be eaten during the event, though usually it is advisable to come in a dance party already full. It is usually held at nighttime and at most after dinnertime and goes on until as late as 3:00 a.m. or as what most party enthusiasts would say “Party ’til dawn.” It is the most lively form of party with good, loud music, and it is a type of party that surrounds on socializing mostly with the use of action rather than talking.

Who Needs a Party Invitation Design?

Invitation would be the face of your party in a letter a form; everything that needs to be said about your party is communicated through it. The design of your invitation should be tailored to your party’s theme, motif, and purpose. You can not have a solemn colored with scary graffiti font style for typography or when your party’s motif is using pastel color for a baby shower.

It is important that you are able to let the receiver understand what the invitation is for by just looking at its design.

Designing Your Invitation Cards

Making your invitation design can get time consuming but in no way should be difficult. There are still things you need to prepare before you hop on to your Photoshop or any other editing software. These are things to keep in mind before making your cards:

  • Budget. A party can not be made without the funds. You need to make a budget you are willing to spend for your party, depending on how grand and how simple your party is. Advanced planning has always been very helpful when it comes to parties; you can make a simple and cheap party when planned well. Budgeting has always been the trickiest and most complicated part of party planning, but once established, you will be able to plan for your party and ease.
  • Theme of the party. Before you can design your invitation, you must come up with the theme of your party. What is your party all about? If it is for a birthday party celebration for your little daughter, you can go for a theme she likes like Frozen theme. With such theme, your motif would be blue, white, and silver colors; some fake snow-like decor; etc.
  • Where and when. You need to find the perfect venue for your event as well as decide for a specific date and time. These two would be the most important part of your planning for your party.
    • Where. The venue will be the place where you can apply the theme of your party fully as well as distinguish how much people you will be able to invite and come over to spend your party with you.
    • When. Finding the perfect date for your party is also essential, most of the time we avoid days like Holy Week where most people would be out of town or going back to their ancestral homes for a break. Weekdays are also something that must be avoided since people with work or school would either be too tired or too busy. Weekends are always the most ideal time for a party. The weekend is the few days in the week where most workers and students are able to take a break from their daily routine, and a partying is always a great break.

As you set the important parts of your party and have set your theme, location, date, and budget, you are now able to start on your invitation design. Your invitation design revolves around not just on the theme but as well as on your budget.

Designing Your Invitation Cards

  • First of all, your design and color choices as well as the paper choice will rely on the budget you have set for your invitation card. You may opt for some simple designing with direct minimal color choices and affordable stock paper if you are on a tight budget. Budgeting is all about allowing you to plan and make your planning into motion without any worries.
  • The colors you choose should be related to the colors of your party’s theme and decors. As mentioned before, your invitation is the face of your party, an advertisement on what the party is all about and what to expect during the party is something your invitation should be able to communicate.
  • The illustration, image, or art of your invitation should also be related to your party’s theme. If it’s for a birthday party of a seven-year-old boy using Toy Story as the theme, you would want to have some of the character’s from the movie be part of your invitation’s art or have a picture of the celebrant wearing a cowboy hat like Woody. Use birthday vectors like balloons, toys, and gifts as part of your invitation design.
  • The content of your invitation card should be able to tell all the important details your guests need to know about your party. The exact location, time, and date of the party should be indicated there. Your invitation should also indicate what the party is for. You don’t need to elaborate it with a wall of words; a small phrase of something like “Celebrating the 50th Anniversary!” and the design you have done should be enough to explain what the invitation is all about.
  • As you are now set with the content of what you want on your invitation, typography is one of the most important parts of your design. Your content should be easily read and understood, as it is the main part of your invitation. You do not want our guests to misread or get confused on the numbers of the date or the spelling of the venue. We have various of fonts available on our site that you can use suitable in the creation of your party invitation. Check out this collection from our website: Best Free Fonts – 1555+ OTF, TTF, PSD Format.
  • As you get done with designing your invitation cards, the last stop would be printing it. Finding the best type of paper you want your invitation to be printed on is one of the easiest and most fun part. There are a ton of different papers you could use—from hardstock papers to soft ones, glittered, and to matted style.
