Now you know where to find fonts, but dont get too font-happy. Typography play a huge role communicating the details of your event, so its essential to stick to a select few that capture the essence of the invitation. In any design, use three or fewer fonts to keep things legible. When you think of each typeface used as a different voice its easy to see how too many voices could make the invitation too “loud,” overpowering the actual event info. With the right selection of fonts, you can effectively set the tone of the invitation without overwhelming the reader. When you make your own invitations, its important that you dont crowd the design elements. A key concept in design is negative space, which allows the viewer to take in all aspects of the invitation without feeling completely bombarded. Dont be afraid to leave blank space between text or images. In regards to typography, always leave ample room between event details. Avoid stacking text on top of each other or squeezing type into a cramped space; text packed into a small space can be hard to read.
Assuming that most users are not design or tech savvy when it comes to using templates is a safer bet than expecting too much from busy staff. Dont give them a hard time by producing overly-sophisticated templates with poor user guidance, leaving users to their own resources to make the whole thing work. Basic is the key word here. Why? Its obvious that frustration levels will rise exponentially as complexity increases with advanced features and style elements. Helping your employees avoid going astray and creating their own templates, just because they dont know how to use the fancy ones provided, is obviously key. Keep it simple. The more intuitively your templates are built, the easier it will be for your staff to apply them and stay on-brand. To make using templates even more effortless, provide as much user guidance as possible so employees dont feel lost along the way.
Aligning type correctly is important in any design. Because most invitations dont contain long paragraphs of copy, its best to align short phrases to the center of your design. Flushing (or justifying) your text to one side or another may make your composition look off-balance. In Editor you can simply toggle the alignment controls on the left side of the app to set your text. Ampersands have a timeless yet stylish appeal with their effortless swashes and terminals. Instead of just typing “and” between names or other info, try incorporating ampersands. They can inject some serious personality to an invitation. I am a huge fan of ampersands, and I want you to love them too, so I have compiled a selection of twelve free fonts with absolutely stunning ampersands. Layer them behind two names or combine the names in a unique way to highlight the ampersand. The options are endless!
