To create custom retirement invitations from a template, go to a website with printable templates, such as BrightHub.com, where you can download a greeting card template and open the template in Microsoft Publisher to edit and personalize the invitation. The Canva program also offers a collection of templates and allows you to upload your own picture or select from available stock photos.
On BrightHub.com, choose a retirement-themed template, such as the hammock design, with which you can double-click the arrow to enter text and type the name of a guest. The interior of the card provides space for party details, including wording for the invitation and the time and date of the party.
Canva software enables you to choose from numerous fonts, customize the background using a stock image or your own uploaded photo, and modify the colors of the text boxes and texts. After editing the pictures, typing all necessary text and adding filters, click Download, select High Quality PDF, and use a quality paper stock to print the invitations. To send the invitations online, click Share at the upper-right side of the screen to post the finished invitation on a social media site or send to a list of email addresses.
