Invitations are always exciting. They mark the beginning of something happy, a new journey, a milestone or a celebration that is so grand, you want all your loved ones to be a part of it. With digital printing and virtual invitations, fewer people opt in for customized invitations, however, there’s a reason why these invitations are becoming popular all over again. Although it seems quick and easy to print out digital invitations, there’s no love in it and they don’t contain anything that represents you. If you want your invitation to speak about the actual event and you want to incorporate the actual theme of the event into the invitation, then you need to customize the invitations. Customized invitations take longer, but here are a few reasons why you should create your own invitations.
Every Person Is Unique
It is very frustrating to see everyone follow the same trend of invitation cards year after year. While it looks good for a while, after that it just become monotonous and boring. The last thing you would want is for someone to look at your invitations and say that it looks similar to the last ten invitations that they received. Since every person is unique, every invitation should be unique as well. If you are printing the invitation for your sons or daughters first birthday, putting their hand print in the card can give a good personalized effect. With the help of a little bit of innovation, you can make your invitations stand out. You do not have to spend a bomb in order to get out classy invitations. All you need is one eureka moment and you will have stunning invitations to give out to everyone.
Sets The Tone For The Party
When you give out boring and clichéd invitation cards, people do not expect much from the party. This may put off a lot of people and they may not even end up coming for the party. However with a classy and innovative invitation card, you will have a full turnout because people want to see what is on the other side of the invitation card. People usually underestimate the power of an invitation card. If you are giving it out as a formality you will end up ruining your party before it has even begun. An invitation card has to be a prequel to the party. You need to get people excited and keep them wondering regarding the party. Once you manage to do this, you will have an amazing turn out for the party and you will not even need to worry about how to make the party fun.
One of the best reasons for you to customize invitations is that you can unleash the creative side of you. If you have something in mind that you would like to incorporate on the invitation, there are limitless ways you can do it. This helps you to create an invitation that represents you as a person. You can also go online and check out some amazing card designs and add some of those ideas to your own invitation. While digital invitations have limited designs that you can pick from, you can combine multiple cards when customizing them to create your own unique card.
Don’t Ignore The Envelopes
This is a common mistake that many people make. If you are looking to make an impact with the invitations, you need to take care of the envelopes as well. The envelopes need to complement the invitation cards and give a preview of what is inside. You cannot have a simple envelope and a very stylish invitation card inside. People have a bad habit of judging something by its cover. If they end up judging your card just by the envelope, some of your invitations may not even get opened. This will waste all the effort that you put in for the invitations. You can do something simple like lining up the envelopes with ribbons or even putting up lace on the edges of the envelope. It will add a nice touch to your invitation.
Be Innovative With Paper
Gone are the days when card paper was used for all invitations. You can now pick from a number of possibilities as far as the base of the invitation is concerned. There are a few textures that actually feel like fabric however they are not that weak. The print on these fabrics are clear and they will not create any problems. You will also be able to get paper that has glitter and sparkles embossed into it. This will ensure that the sparkles do not rub off on the hands of everyone that touches the invitations.
