When it comes to your wedding invitations, you always want
them to stand out. Your invitations present you with an opportunity to create
something that is unique to you by combining beautiful elements and printing
techniques. The last thing you want is for your invitations to look similar or
the same to other invitations you have seen. In order to make yours unique and
really add that ‘wow’ factor, then you are going to need to take some time and
prepare a unique invitation. Read on and find a few ways that will really make
yours stand out against the rest.
Use a Beautiful Typeface
A beautiful typeface is a must with any wedding invitation. Some
of the options that are a perfect fit include scripts, brush, calligraphy, and
handwriting fonts. These are highly recommended because of the limited text on
an invitation. Try to pair one of these typefaces with a simpler font like sans
serif for contrast. You can use the more elegant type for names and sans serif
for the rest to really make them stand out.
Customize a Template
When it comes to a template, if you start with a premade
invitation, it can be a great way to get the ball rolling on your custom
design. It can give you an idea on what style best fits the couple and move on
from there. A good template is one that you can fully customize to suit your
unique needs. Change colors, typefaces, pictures, or themes until you create
something you truly love.
Photo Keepsake Option
When you create an invitation, the recipient may throw it
away after writing down the date in their calendar. In order to make your
invitation more of a keepsake, create one that doubles as a beautiful wedding
photo. When you use a great image and match it with some simple calligraphy,
you can turn it into a design that recipients will want to hold onto.
Print on Quality Paper
Whenever you create something that is printed, nothing says
special occasion like quality paper. You will want to opt in for something with
adequate weight and texture. A sturdy invitation on good paper will always look
better and more official.

imperfections, you need the right wedding print shop. That’s where we come in,

A lot of planning goes
into the design of your wedding invitations. From selecting an elegant and legible
font, to picking the size of your card, you can showcase your personality and
style to your guests while still including all of the necessary information. In
this month’s blog, we’re looking at how to design wedding invitations with a
few key steps to remember along the way!
Size and Print
First, you want to pick the
shape and size of the invitation; these specifications will give you a lot of
information and make the design process a little more worry-free. Depending on
your preference to larger or smaller cards, this can determine how much
information you can fit, as well as other pictures and memorabilia of you and
your partner. It can also determine your postage situation (if you’ll need to
pay extra costs for shipping).
Is your wedding casual?
Perhaps it’s a black-tie event? Pick a visual theme for your wedding
invitations that matches the tone/theme of your wedding. You’ll want to settle
on a style that reflects your personality as a couple. You might spend a few
days looking at options online, or maybe you already have a concept in mind. Design
elements such as color, typography and other style flourishes can
also be used for the actual event (including table cards and signage).
The font on your wedding
invitation can speak volumes. While script writing is a popular style for traditional
cards, modern designs can be just as sleek and sophisticated. While you are
thinking about typefaces, this is the perfect time to think about the words
going on the card. Pick a typeface that works with your actual letters.
(Sometimes a great font doesn’t look the way you like with certain letter
combinations.) Make sure to test different fonts with important information like
the date, time, and location of your wedding.
Gather up your favorite
photos as a couple to put on your card; this kind of display can make your
wedding invitation more personal. If you have custom photos from a shoot, then
be sure that they will fit the area of your card. You don’t want your images to
come out blurry or too small where no one can see them. High-quality and
high-resolution photos are the way to go!
Of course, there are so
many different ways you can express your creativity with a wedding invitation.
