Creating A Unique Party Invite For The Summer

by

As the temperatures begin to rise and summer begins creeping its way into the calendar, many are preparing for a few events at home. One of those events includes a hot grill, cold drinks & the company of friends and family. But aside from making phone calls or texts to invite them, why not go with something a bit more unique? If this is a summer party or BBQ that’s going to be extraordinary, creating a unique custom magazine cover party invitation is the way to get your event started on the right foot. Let us show you how below.

Include The Details

If you’re hosting this event at your home, make sure you’re including everything your guests need to know before they arrive. This can include themed attire such as Hawaiian shirts, or the time of the shindig and what to bring. Your custom party invitation should provide all of the information needed to make your guests well-prepped and comfortable when the day comes

Photos Of The Venue

It’s good to choose a photo that displays what the party is going to entail, whether it’s the pool in the backyard, or the chef, cooking up everyone’s favorites! The theme of your party should be expressed through a photo (or photos), letting everyone know the type of fun they can expect when they arrive.

What To Bring

In addition to the details of the party itself, this summer bash could also benefit from the help of others. It’s normal to have people offering to bring food and drinks for everyone, so putting contact information or a tentative list of things needed is a great idea! This way, everyone knows what to have when they arrive and the party goes smoothly without the need to run to the store for an extra item!

Share Memories

Tips For Creating A Custom Car Magazine Cover As A Gift

by

There’s nothing better than a Sunday drive in your classic hot rod, or German sports car. Car enthusiasts are as unique as the rides they work so hard on to keep clean — and there’s always a story behind each one! What sits in the garage is usually a bunch of tools, cleaning supplies, and of course, car show trophies. But one thing is sometimes missing — and that’s the car on the cover of a magazine! One of the best car enthusiast gifts you can give is the recognition he or she so rightfully deserves! See how you can create a custom car-themed magazine cover below.

car

Feature The Ride

In creating this gift for the car enthusiast, the most important thing about the magazine cover is going to be the car itself. Consider a ¾ angle of the car, making sure to fit it into the canvas. Also, it should be a clear photo with negative space available on every side, so that the headlines don’t get in the way of that shiny paint. If you have a photo of the driver with the car, even better! There’s nothing better than showing off the ride and the driver in one.

Highlights

Whether this car is a racetrack junkie or a show car garage queen, it’s always noteworthy to point out what makes the car so unique. If it’s won a few car shows, definitely make note of these trophies! Maybe this ride is a hawk on the track, and posted a best lap time — this is also something to note, especially since it was also due to the skills of the person behind the wheel! Whether it’s clean enough to eat off of or has a faster engine than an airplane, it’s certainly worth noting.

A Custom Printing

Sometimes, the idea of your car on a magazine cover is too awesome of an idea to keep limited to just one version. Luckily, you can create this personalized car magazine cover and turn it into almost anything — from a blown up poster for the garage, to custom printed t-shirts! Although if you’re going for traditional magazine sizing, you can also have it placed into a nice frame, which can be displayed almost anywhere!

We’re just over a week away from Mother’s Day, and if you haven’t already gotten your mom a gift, you may be looking for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift idea. But what can you possibly get for the mother in your life who’s done so much for you since your birth? Or maybe she’s someone who’s always been in your life, and you want to show your appreciation.

Photo Choices

This is probably one of the most important parts of the cover itself. When selecting a photo, make sure you pick a high-quality photo that is not blurry or out of focus. It can be a photo of mom by herself or with you or other family members. If possible choose a photo that has some negative (blank) space on either side and above her head for your headlines.

Headlines

Some of the best things to feature on your personalized magazine cover are things that your mother has done for you throughout her life. Oftentimes, this includes putting you before herself, teaching you things, and being there when you needed her. These are the important moments and they should certainly be highlighted to show your appreciation and to remind her of your love each and every day.

Memories

Memories are some of the most important things people cherish. From daytime picnics to the perfect Christmas morning at home, these are the things she’ll remember most. Running jokes and specific dates are perfect examples of things you can elect to put on your Mother’s Day magazine cover — especially because she’ll always be reminded of the impact she has on your life.

by

It’s a great idea to recognize those in your life who have made a positive impact, no matter how large or small. In your family, it’s always important to recognize those who had a part in your upbringing, and grandparents certainly fall into that category. One of the best ways to show them that you’re thinking of them is a personal gift. In terms of being practical and unique, nothing is quite like a personalized magazine cover to show your appreciation for all of their hard work and love for you. Here are a few things you can add to a cover to make It personal!

Old Memories

One of the best things you can include on your magazine cover are memories that you’ve shared with your grandparents. Whether that was a trip to the state fair or a weekend stay at their home, it’s worth noting as a great memory, which makes them feel appreciated. Events that remind them how special they are to you are the best things to highlight.

Quotes

Every grandparent offers words of advice and wisdom to the ones in their family. This is because they usually have a ton of experience within a lot of topics. To make these important, you can use the cover editor to keep these quotes bolded and centered on the magazine cover. This gives anyone looking at your creation an idea as to who your grandparents are as a person.

Mutual Hobbies

If this is a special grandparents’ gift coming from only you, it’s a good idea to include things that will remind them of you for a while. A good idea is to feature something like a mutual sport or hobby that both of you enjoy, such as golf or sewing. This lets them know that the time spent doing those things are either because of them or their direction was valued.

3 Things To Do For A Party Invitation

by

In 2017, the traditional party invitation via the postal system is a lost gem that rarely makes its way into your mailbox. The digital era is full of other, new ways to invite your guests to events — but let’s not forget about how it used to be! A party invitation hung on the fridge is not only one of the best reminders your guests can have, but it allows you to have a bit of fun and use your creativity to request their attendance.

Check out a few tips below on how to make the best invite possible for your next event.

birthday

Feature Your Star

Whether you are using the magazine cover invitation for your mother’s 60th birthday party or a party to celebrate your star athlete, make sure you’re featuring a clear photo of them doing what they love! This can include a photo of them smiling, playing their favorite sport, or just hanging with the family! It’s important to also make sure that this picture has the appropriate amount of negative space to feature the details of the part.

Include The Deets!

The purpose of this unique template is to make it look very similar to that of a magazine cover, while also incorporating the details guests will need to attend the event. Placing the date at the top is a great way to place subtle reminders of when the event will be (don’t worry, you can always mention it below that as well). Utilize headlines to feature key components, such as the event’s location, time, dress code, and the RSVP date. All necessary information can be carefully constructed to look as authentic as possible on your custom magazine cover invitation, while still retaining that authentic look!

Other Ideas

No matter the event, whether for a child’s birthday party or for a retirement, there are multiple ways to use the magazine cover invitation. Purchase the photo file download and print yourself to send to your guests, print the magazine cover as a poster to use as a sign in board or decoration for the party, frame a print of the magazine cover invitation as a keepsake for the guest of honor.

Photo Tips For Your Magazine Cover

by

The perfect picture is just a snap away, right? Well, of course — provided you have the right skills necessary that is! When creating your personalized magazine cover, you can either use a photo you already have or take a new one yourself! But not just any photo will work — there are a few tips and tricks to taking the best photo you can, which optimizes it for your unique magazine cover.

yc1 yc2

Clarity

One of the most important things to note when taking a photo is the quality in which it is coming out. In today’s age, most of our cell phones and digital cameras are pretty good at focusing in on the subject, but it doesn’t hurt to double check. In addition, making sure that there’s enough natural light is important, as well as color balance. Doing this will ensure a perfect picture to use as the base of your fake magazine cover

Negative Space

While you want your subject to be the focal point of the image, it’s important to leave some space on either side of them for background purposes. Because your gift is supposed to be a unique magazine cover, you’re also responsible for creating the custom headlines to go along with it! This means that you should leave a bit of blank space for headlines. Note: When creating this negative space, try to keep it all one color if possible, to make sure all text is legible.

Relevant Images

If you’re creating a personalized sports magazine cover, it would make more sense to incorporate some of that sport in the actual photo. This helps give your athlete, dancer or birthday girl/boy the perfect setting for the perfect magazine cover. With everything tied together, you’re able to create the best fake magazine cover possible!

Creating A Personalized Sports Magazine Cover

by

Whether they’re just starting out or they’re a home-run hitting college student, the athlete in your life always loves a bit of encouragement. Throughout their lives, nothing makes them happier than attendance at their games, and recognition for their hard work. For those who aren’t able to attend every game, there are great ways to show them how proud you are, and they’re very easy! A personalized sports magazine cover is a great place to start, and there are a ton of things you can do with them to make it as personal as you’d like.

Highlight Their Achievements

Whether your star just got his/her first hit or they’re a hat trick scorer, highlighting their skills within the sport is great for their own morale, and growth. This shows them that you acknowledge their hard work and dedication, which only boosts their confidence next time they’re on the field for their next shift.

Use Sport Headlines

In addition to highlighting their strengths as an athlete, this is a great way to incorporate quotes from their favorite athletes, as well as someone they look up to. If they’re a hockey player, this is a great place to include a quote along the lines of “He’s the next me!” – Wayne Gretzky. Additionally, you can show them that you’re their biggest fan with a quote from you about how proud you are — something simple often means the most!

Be Quirky

Just because they’re super focused in on the field doesn’t mean the sports themed magazine cover can’t be fun! If your athlete loves his/her red Gatorade, this is a great thing to incorporate into the magazine, with a headline that makes them look like the next sponsored athlete. You can also highlight some of their game rituals, which might include a dance right before their at-bat or the next play. Remember, everything is made to be totally custom and tailored to your shining star!
