The wedding invitation printing is one of the most important parts of a wedding party. It may not be included in the part of the wedding itself, but it can complete the wedding event.

If you are thinking of doing the design of the wedding invitation printing on your own, then you’ve come to the right place.

Read more below for several useful tips for designing wedding invitations as well as the printing process.

1. Decide on a Theme

Deciding on a theme as the first step of making your own wedding invitation is perfect because by doing so, you can determine other design elements that can work well with the designated theme. Usually, it is appropriate and a lot easier to match the theme of the wedding invitation with the concept of the wedding itself so that you can create a cohesive look across everything related to the wedding.

2. Consider Getting a Template

If you are unfamiliar with professional editing software like CorelDraw or Adobe Photoshop, there’s no need to worry. These days, you can find templates on the internet that can be tweaked and adjusted to your liking. A lot of them are free, but you should be able to get access to more design options by paying for them. Choosing to get a customizable theme is very convenient. It is easy, saves time and energy, and you can still get a professional looking wedding invitation without stressing yourself out.

3. Typeface

Pick on a typeface style that can work well with the theme and template that you have chosen. Usually, the template already gives you the type of font as well as the typeface for the wedding invitation. You can either just go along with it or explore a little more and try to find something that looks better and more unique for the template and theme that you have chosen. In using a unique typeface, you have to be able to know which part of the wedding invitation is deserving of such styling, because it cannot be used for the entirety of your wedding invitation. Use fancy and beautiful typeface to emphasize a certain part and make it pop out more, such as the name of the bride and groom.

4. Finishes

You can make your wedding invitation look even prettier with the right choice of finish. Finishes are the extra touch that you can choose to give after the initial printing process. Finishes polish the look of your wedding invitation, making it look better and more interesting. A lot of people choose foil stamping, embossing, UV coating, letter pressing, and many more types of finishes.

5. Envelope

Never forget about designing and printing an envelope for your wedding invitation as well. The envelope must have a design that completes the look of your wedding invitation and preferably has a durable material so that it can protect the wedding invitation from various situation or conditions that may occur during the delivery process of the wedding invitation. The envelope of a wedding invitation can also be secured further with a plastic packaging that ensures its safety.
