Choosing the right invitation cards-some tips
- The theme
What would be the theme of your card? – Vintage or Modern; Flamboyant or functional; Elite or just essential; Chic or customary?
Decide on how you would like your card to like by finalizing its theme. The theme of your invitation card is going to decide its elements like the colours, font, content, texture and layout to be used.
- The design
How you would like to design your card? With single fold or multifold? With die-cut or just plain layouts? With the regular rectangular shape or a distinctly different contour?
Deciding the design of your invitation card is crucial and has to be one very early as a lot of planning has to be done to execute this design. The other important factor to be noted is that the design of your invitation card also decides its cost of printing. Yes, a routine card with a regular shape and pattern might cost less but unusually shaped cards or cards with die-cut layouts will definitely cost.
But if you are a person who wishes to stand out from the rest, this extra cost will only prove marginal when compared to the everlasting memories your invitation card is going to create!
- The colours
Want a dignified and sophisticated invitation card?- choose sober and pastel shades. Want a striking card – go for bright colours. Want to make a loud statement with your invite- go flashy and fluorescent!
The colours you choose for your card also decide the emotion it conveys and evokes.
Wedding cards are usually either vibrant or just plain sober. Take care in using only auspicious colours as per your tradition and avoid shades of black or grey.
Whether you want to go single colour or multi-colour is your choice, but just make sure you select the right colour for your card.

Invitation cards usually use a cursive script when the occasion is a family one and go for capitals only for corporate occasions. Choose a legible font that is easily readable and printable. Highlight the names, venue and date and time details in bold, capitals or in a different font.
