Custom invitations are designed by a professional and typically printed on high-quality paper. Often they include details like date, time and place in the design itself, which can save you a lot of time by not having to write it out for each card.
Many online options have fully customizable designs for every style and occasion, from weddings to showers and birthdays. Some designers offer a complete suite of stationery, including matching RSVP cards and thank you notes. You can even find coordinating embellishments, like belly bands, wraps and vellum overlays.
If you opt for a full-custom invitation, it’s helpful to decide on your overall design aesthetic before you start searching through designers’ portfolios, says Weber. She recommends creating a Pinterest board to identify your style, then looking at designers who use those elements frequently in their work.
Another way to narrow down your options is by selecting a specific color palette that you can filter with in our search filters. Some designs may not have that particular color, but you can still view them in the search results. You can also filter by price range, which will help you determine what is best for your budget.
For an extra special touch, choose a die cut, which is when a custom shape is cut out of the card, rather than being cut straight around its edge. You can even have your cards cut in any shape under the sun, such as a taco, puppy or mountain! Etemply
