When you’re planning your next big gathering, take some time to consider the best way to coordinate the design elements of your invitations to the overall theme of the event. The invitations you send reflect the tone of the gathering; it’s important to send the right message. Here is some helpful advice about the kinds of decisions you’ll need to make and how they’ll affect the overall presentation of your invitations.
Choosing the right color theme for the envelope and stationery is the often the first decision you’ll make. Different colors signify various meanings, and some choices are obviously more appropriate than others. For instance, while bold red address labels may be perfect for your son’s birthday party, they are less appropriate for your new baby girl’s birth announcement. Similarly, the envelope you choose also sends a statement. Simpler, more stoic designs have a more serious tone, better for more formal occasions. More elaborate themes, however, are better for livelier parties and events, such as bridal showers and wedding receptions.
To put your invitations over the top, incorporate elements that truly personalize your stationery. This includes anything from letter-pressed monograms to a personalized printed message. Customizations like these add a level of sophistication to your invitations, establishing a uniquely uniform theme to your correspondence. Design templates range from the minimal to the elaborate, providing a theme for a variety of personalities. It’s the personal touches that give your stationery an extra level of sentimentality, sharing a little of yourself with the world.
No matter the event, be prepared to share the news with your loved ones. Whether you choose red address labels or gold-leafed cardstock, find the stationery that suit your style and personality best. Whenever your friends and family find your cards and invitations in the mail, they’ll know it means something special because it’s from you.
"These are beautiful. They convey a seasonal message but can be used year-round. I got these for my father, but will order my own too."
"My son instantly liked this label out the others I gathered for him to select from. The color is very pleasing to the eye and the cap icon along with the selected fonts of print have a marked maturity for a 17 year old young man to help announce his high school graduation."
"The colors are vibrant, the printing is super clear and the size is just great. I'm very please with these address labels. Traditional address labels crumble or flake off when they become wet, but the quality of these are just perfect for mailing in harsh weather."
"These look awesome. They are very classy looking and look very expensive. Looks like I spent a lot of money on them because of the quality. Love them!"
"LOVE these return labels! They look so adorable, if my fiances name wasn't on them I would make sure every envelope we sent out was hot pink. They are so stylish and modern. Will be ordering several more!"
