How to Design a Kindergarten Invitation
These days, an invitation comes in many forms and shapes. But did you know that the earliest invitations were used in the Middle Ages? At this time, only the wealthy family could afford an invitation because they would commission skilled monks to write calligraphies for them. These calligraphies will serve as notices for events, especially wedding celebrations. Then the time came for the hand-engraved invitations. In the 1600s, artisans used to engrave metal plates that serve as a request or notice. During the same century, the invention of the printing press made way for invitations to be announced in the newspaper. That time onward, invitations became essential parts of events.
