DIY Invitations and Matching Envelopes for Your Special Events

Each and every one of us celebrates life in our own way, whether it's a baby's arrival, a birthday, an achievement or union, and not forgetting those extra special anniversaries that come by each year. We usually celebrate these milestones and special events with our loved ones and close friends, and do it with a party or function. So, when it comes to that, you will need invitations, and if you are either budget conscious or just plain creative, it may be good thinking to opt for DIY invitations to create beautiful handmade creations to your tastes.

The DIY Invitations Process

There are many ways to come about DIY invitations. Some may say first start with the paper, so you will look around for the best choice of paper stock, or even card stock for those who prefer a hardy material for their creations. This would mean already knowing the vision of the outcome of your invitations, in terms of shape and size, the quality of the paper/card, and not forgetting the most important thing, what the design will entail. Purchasing paper stock would mean you will have to fold it to your liking, add the necessary touches, print, embellishments, appliqués and whatever you may want to add to the DIY invitations.

However, there are alternatives to this as well, and that would be to purchase DIY invitations that are readily available for your creative touch.  These include the likes of invite cards that are folded and are available in the prerequisite shapes, size and colour, and not to mention the quality of the paper finish too. All you will need to do moving forward would be to add the printing and embellishment details. Some DIY invitations retailers provide printing services, where you may edit your invitation wording and other details depending on your order requirement, and have it ready for you, so that all you will need to do would be to add the accessories and additional touches. It also means you will need to pick out envelopes for your DIY invitation packages as well, which are available in bulk depending on your need.

There are other options too, handmade invitations that are done up by designers according to your taste and liking, for a truly professional finish, and comes paired with DIY envelopes too. You also have the option of opting for hardcover invitations, which are available in different styles such as pocket invitations and are accompanied by a matching envelope that suit the texture and finish of the card stock used on the invitation.
