A consistent color scheme ties all design elements together and sets the tone of your invitation. The color scheme plays a bigger role than just appearance; it also defines the nature of the invitation. For example, vibrant palettes work well for birthday invitations, while more subdued palettes are ideal in wedding invites. Finding the right colors for your design can be overwhelming, especially if you are not familiar with color theory. To speed up the color selection process, I have created tons of custom color palettes for you. These 101 color combinations, 25 retro color palettes, and 20 holiday color palettes will give you a jolt of color inspiration. Using a high-quality font is especially important when you make your own invitations. Just like other design elements, typography plays a huge role in a composition. Different fonts evoke different emotions. For example, script fonts exude elegance, while sans serif fonts give off a more casual vibe. That being said, there are many sites to source your fonts from, and many of them are free. Some of these free fonts run the risk of being poorly designed, but there are some trustworthy sites to find free and high-quality fonts. If you design your invitation in Editor, you already have a selection of great fonts to use, including invitation classics like script fonts.
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!
Depending on the type of event you are designing for and its context, your card dimensions may vary. Listed are some variations of invitation cards, ranging from small and square to thin and oblong. Every well thought out invitation takes some time to design, so avoid a rushed timeline by planning out your invitation designs early. Its important to give yourself time to think about the layout, typography, illustration, and color schemes involved in your invitation. Color theory is one of the most important aspects of a design, guiding how different colors pair together to create a specific tone or emotion in a composition. Dont apply colors willy-nilly – your design will look much better if you are intentional about color. Most invitations fall within or take from distinct visual styles. These styles affect the overall appearance of the card, including its color scheme, illustrations, and typography. Finding the right style for your invitation may be overwhelming at first, since there are a lot of directions you can go in. Do some extensive research to help you narrow down which styles work best for your event. A mood board helps you compile those inspirational examples of illustration styles, typography, and color schemes in one place. You can also browse through sites such as Pinterest to find existing invitation styles or search through my collection of invitation templates.
