Birthday Invitation Ideas

This year, when birthday party planning rolls around, why not create your own printable birthday invitations instead of buying fill in the blank or all-purpose invitations from a party supply store?

Printing your own invitations is not only fun and economical, it's also a great way to personalize the theme of your event. Here are some birthday invitation ideas.

Not sure where to start? Printing your own birthday invitations is easier than you might think. With a little creativity and some basic computer skills, you can whip up a printable invitation that will announce your birthday party in style. Here are a few tips to get you started:

Designing the Invitation

You don't need any fancy software-you can even design your invitation using a simple word processor like Microsoft Word. Experiment with font sizes, spacing, and colors to create an appealing design. If you want to add pictures, do an Internet search for free clip art and then cut and paste in the graphics, or personalize with photos stored on your computer. If you prefer, you can also use free online templates to design your printable invitations.

Putting it into Words

In addition to the party details (occasion, date, location, time, theme, special costume suggestions, and RSVP information), you can customize your birthday invitation with a special verse or saying. If you're at a loss for words, turn to the Internet for help. A quick search for birthday invitation wording will yield hundreds of suggestions.

Putting it All Together

Birthday Invitation Ideas

For a more professional look, print your birthday invitations on cardstock. (Be sure to do a few practice runs on plain paper first, to make sure the layout is what you have in mind.) If you don't have access to a color printer, save your file to a Flash drive and take it to your local print shop. This will cost more than printing the invitations at home, but you'll be pleased with the professional results.

Additional Considerations

  1. Stick to a central design theme
  2. Don't overdo pictures
  3. Don't use too many different colors and font styles
  4. Keep text simple and to the point with party details and a single verse

A well-designed printable invitation creates an outstanding first impression for your event. Creating your own invitations is a fun, rewarding project that's easy on your party budget.
