Party invitations typically take on a traditional approach — they tell you where and when it’ll be, the dress code, and your RSVP date. But let’s be honest, who wants the same old invite each time another party happens? In a world where unique is the new ‘in’ trend, something as small as your party invite can be a big way to set your big day apart from the rest. We’ve compiled a few tips below on how you can create a unique magazine cover that doubles as a party invite for your guests!
- Include All Information. Though this is a fun play on a magazine cover, all necessary information should be included. The time, place, and dress code are a few things to mention. This doesn’t mean you can’t be fun with it, just make sure it’s clear!
- Spice It Up! Whether you’re planning an extravagant party or a simple get-together, your magazine cover should still replicate that of an authentic one. Keep your headlines bolded, and use colors that will help them stand out. Making sure that everything is legible is a key to a successful magazine cover.
- Feature Yourself. If the party is for you, it’s a good idea to use a fun photo of yourself to advertise the event! Maybe you’re heading to the bar for a few drinks — feature a picture of yourself enjoying a pint. Remember, this cover is supposed to explain and highlight the event as a whole.
- Include RSVP Instructions. Whether it’s a call to you or an email back, RSVPing for a party is the easiest way to obtain a headcount — you don’t want to expect a few people and have triple the amount show up! You can include these instructions on the bottom of the cover, which is traditionally where they’d be on other types of invites!
Ultimately, your party is what you make it, and it begins with the excitement you build from the invite itself. By enticing your potential guests with a custom magazine cover as an invite, they’ll be just as ready to party as you are! With instant download available, you can send the invite as either an email, or print it out and send it through the mail!
