To create a personalized invitation, customize a digital invitation or create one using a word processing software of your choice. Use a website that specializes in invitations, choosing from the selection of invitations, and then edit the text and images to suit your invitation needs. When creating an invitation using a word processor, use a template or format the page layout, and add all necessary text and images.
With digital invitations, choose a design and change the background or images provided in the design. Click on the text boxes to edit the text, changing the font and the color of the words. Preview the card, and then choose whether to send the card digitally or order physical copies of the invitation to mail.
To create an invitation using a word processor, open a new document and format the margins slightly smaller than the size of the envelopes. Insert a text box to create customized word art and add text with the details for the event. Insert any images or clip art that you desire and add a border around the page. Change the background color and text size and color to suit the invitation's design.
If you want the card to be folded, create one page for the front and back of the card, and a second page for the inside of the card. When printing, change the print settings to print front and back, but be sure to line up the pages correctly. Proofread and edit the invitation, and then print a test page to ensure the margins are correct and the content of the invitation is placed properly. Save the invitation to a specific file in case you need to reprint invitations later.
