There are many advantages to making DIY wedding invitations instead of ordering your wedding invitations from a designer. In addition to saving a lot of money, you will have the opportunity to make a personal impression on your wedding guests through your design. Printable formal invitations come in many sizes and designs that look professionally printed.
To make DIY wedding invitations, you should first find a set of printable formal invitations that suits the needs and look of your wedding. Invitations can be made from printable flat invitations, printable foldover panel cards, design paper and many other stationery materials – the choice is up to you! Formal invitations will often feature professional embossing & foil designs and also be constructed from textured paper such as vellum, parchment or fine paper. Using invitations with a pre-printed design will save you time during your design process, but using blank textured stationery (often available in many colors) will give you the freedom to design your invitations from scratch and make them completely your own.
If you are looking to design all of your wedding stationery, try looking for invitation kits online. Invitation kits and sets may feature items such as printable invitations, envelopes, note cards, thank you cards, place cards & other stationery for formal occasions. If you need to make a large number of invitations and other stationery for your event, you can save both time and money by using a collection. In addition, kits ensure that you will have a cohesive themed look amongst all of your wedding stationery.
There are many ways you can design your invitations via computer. At the most basic level, DIY wedding invitations can be designed using only a word processing program. Simply adjust your page layout so your document matches the size of your printable invitations (ex: 5.5”x8.5”) and then type the text for your invitations using the desired fonts and colors. You can also use a downloadable invitation template, typically available for free from online stationery stores. Templates can be beneficial because they offer guidelines to help you type your text and print correctly. Finally, you could use a stationery design program to get the most design options in one package. The iClickn’Print Design Center is a web-based design tool that is offered for free to TheRoyalStore customers.
It is up to you to decide which methods to make DIY wedding invitations work best for you considering your wedding plans and your technical capabilities. With the right tools, you can create meaningful and memorable invitations at low cost!
