How to Create a College Invitation in Word

In a survey by Princeton Reviews, Syracuse University ranks number one among the party schools in the country. This just shows that colleges in the US take parties seriously. If you are planning to host a college event any time soon—be it a reunion, graduation, etc., then you'll be glad to know that we have some guidelines that you can follow when creating a college invitation in Microsoft Word.

1. Use Two Themes At Most

Using themes for your invitation will make the entire designing process easier. Having a theme will help you determine what graphics to add, what colors to use, and what font is most suitable. However, you should limit to using two themes at a time, and remember to use themes that complement each other, like rustic and floral.

2. Explore Theme-Appropriate Images and Illustrations

Since you already have your theme, you should determine what images and illustrations would best fit the look and feel of your invitation. Research for other invitation designs that you can use as your reference, you should also search for sites that allow you to use royalty-free and original artworks and illustrations.

3. Keep the Text Short and Clear

There's no point in beating around the bush when creating the content of your school invitations. You should keep your content short and direct. Although you need the tone to be inviting, it should also be instructional; provide the specific details of the event, such as the date, time, location, dress code, and RSVP details.

4. Search for High-Quality Fonts

The font used is as equally important as the theme and content of your event invitation. Some fonts will make your content hard to read, and others won't complement the theme. It is important to look for fonts that are high-quality, theme-appropriate, and readable.
