How to create an invitation
Step 1: Choose a design
Consider the theme of your event before choosing a design. Templates can provide inspiration on how to make invitations. Because you’re limited on space, you must prioritize which details to include.
Step 2. Pick the right size
Standard invitation size is 5" x 7" (or 10" x 14"), printed on sturdy card stock. However, you have the option to print vertically or horizontally. For more customization, you can choose single or double-sided, as well.
Step 3: Write your message
An invitation should answer the important questions (what, where, when) about your party or get-together, but it should also showcase some personality! Take advantage of fonts, colors, and clever headlines. And don't forget the details:
WHAT — This is the most important question to answer. If your recipient doesn't know what you're celebrating, it will lead to confusion and possibly their absence. Baby shower, wedding, birthday, graduation? Be clear!
WHEN — A good celebration needs a start date and time, but some times are more important than others. If the event is a surprise party, for example, instruct guests to arrive before the cut-off.
Step 4: Incorporate photos
Vibrant images and colors are inviting. Colors communicate emotion, and invitations with photos are more attractive. Upload your own photos, or use our Facebook & Dropbox import to find the right ones.
Step 5: Print your invitation
Digital invitations are convenient, but there's something special about receiving a printed invitation in the mail. Marq offers high-quality printing services, so we ship your invitations right to your door.
