The invitation is usually the first point of contact in the experience of your event. Ensure that details such as the venue, time and date are clear and then focus on bringing the expected experience to life through the design of your invitation.
For the best results, use professional design software such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. Also, make sure that your saved artwork file adheres to all of the items on the checklist for saving your artwork. If you are uncomfortable with the respective design software, we recommend using our professional design services. This is crucial, as a poor design can, in fact, harm your business and its reputation as a whole.

What is “bleed”?
Bleed is the area around your artwork that is trimmed off. This allows your design to look as if it was printed to the edge, even when the cutting alignment was slightly off. Your bleed should always extend to at least 3mm.
The history of the invitation appears to be synonymous with the history of the wedding invitation. Prior to this people were usually invited to special events, like a wedding, via word of mouth. This was usually done by a “town crier” (or announcer) which meant that anyone who heard was invited. Monks were eventually used to hand write some wedding invitations, but these services were only used by the wealthy. The invention of lithography and eventually the printing press enabled more people to print invitations en masse, thus making the practice of sending special, printed, invitations more popular.
