As a custom, the formal invitation has been largely replaced by the social media RSVP. But some occasions are so significant you don’t want to just send an email blast. These may include weddings, engagements, graduations, birthdays, and retirements. Big life events deserve a physical correspondence.
At our Los Angeles quick print center, we offer consultations in every aspect of invitation planning. It’s important to know appropriate content even for an invitation that’s less formal—a child’s birthday party, for example. Information every invitation needs is who, what, when, and where. The “who” part of the formula typically names both the guest or guests of honor, and the host or hosts of the event.
You want to catch eyes with packaging, so choosing the right paper stock and letterhead is critical. Some clients are tempted to go overboard with art direction, and this is not always necessary. In fact, a minimal approach could make your invitation more memorable. In any case, your invited guests will model their anticipation for the event based on your professional presentation.
Whatever the desired effect, we give advice on graphics, tone, and font. If you want personalized envelopes, we have those too. Call us today about next day invitation printing.
