How to Make a Farewell Invitation Card?
People move from places to places, get promoted from one branch, department, or class to another often. While this can cause sadness to them and their loved/closed ones, showing love and support, like throwing them a farewell party, can cheer up the situation.
If you are planning a farewell party, ensure that the person moving is surrounded by the people he/she love, like close friends and family. Creating an invitation is the best way to inform them of the party, whether it is a surprise or not. But if you want a few tips in creating a farewell invitation card that everyone from the party guests to the celebrant can appreciate, read more.
1. Plan the Design
Whether it’s handmade or sent by email, you’ll need to start by deciding the overall appearance of your invitation card. Make sure its contents are elegant and the design is pleasing. Decide which words to emphasize on the invitation to grab the reader’s attention and figure out the outline of your invitation’s message. Plan the positions of the words, the pictures, and the color scheme of the flyer. You need to present it in a way that’s memorable as nobody is going to remember you if they’re handed a nearly blank invitation card. Once you've figured it all out, making it will be easier from here on.
2. Details and Directions
Give information of the venue such as where the party is located, and what time it starts and ends. Add details and specify what type of farewell party this is going to be. When typing down these details, use a clear font so that the guests can easily read and understand them. You may also add a map with directions onto your invitation card so that your guests will be able to find their way without problems.
3. Make It Personalized
Think about the person/people that this farewell party is for, whether it’s a fellow employee at work or classmate moving schools. You’ll need to tailor your message for them accordingly. Instead of going for a typical invitation script, try to mention personalized things and inside jokes to each of your guests when creating the invitation. This will make them feel even more included and enticed to come and join.
4. Photos for Memories
If the farewell party is a bit more formal (like in the workplace), then add a professional photo of the person. However, if the party is more personal or among close friends, you may choose to add group photos with close friends or funny photos of the people/person leaving soon. Placing pictures of them in a simple invitation can set the mood of the party. Make sure that the photos don’t take up too much space or are too small so it won’t draw attention away from the invite’s message.
