Invitations & Announcements
Give big moments the fanfare they deserve with custom event invitations.
From the birth of your firstborn to Mom’s retirement, certain occasions demand a proper party. That’s why VistaPrint offers custom party invitations for all your most meaningful celebrations. The right invite will excite guests and create a tangible reminder they can stick on the fridge – one that’s way prettier than any group text.
Our invites cover an array of events, including birthdays and weddings, plus smaller (yet equally joyful) get-togethers like holiday parties and housewarmings.
As you browse our galleries, you’ll find designs for every taste, from ornate florals to eye-popping graphics. Customizing our celebration cards is simple too – with a few clicks, you can add all the must-know info and even fancy embellishments. (Gold foil? Yes please.) As you create, we’ll be standing by, ready to help whenever you need it.
Frequently asked questions
Our fill-in-the-blank templates make it easy to write your invitations. As you browse designs, you’ll notice our invites have designated blank spaces for all the most essential information. That includes:
- Who the event is for (aka the guests of honor)
- The date and time
- The venue and address
- RSVP details, including contact information and a deadline for guests to send their response
All you have to do is type in the information and you’re done. For certain occasions, we’ve made sure to include space for additional information. For example, our baby and bridal shower invitations have a section for you to provide registry information.
And, if there are any other details you’d like to share with guests, you always have the option of adding more text in the design studio. Those details could be:
- The dress code
- A rain date for outdoor events
- What guests should bring (if anything)
- Requests for food allergy information
- If it’s a kids’ party, whether parents should attend
Timing for when to mail your invitations varies based on the event. Use the list below as a general guideline.
- Save the dates: 6-12 months prior to the date.
- Wedding invites: 6-8 weeks.
- Bridal shower & baby shower invites: 4-6 weeks.
- Holiday & New Year’s invites: 4 weeks.
- Birthday, anniversary & housewarming invites: 2-4 weeks.
For ordering, we recommend that you add 1-2 weeks to the timelines above. Printing and delivery turnaround for invitation orders is approximately 1 week – that gives you plenty of time to receive, assemble and mail your invites out.
We have invitations and announcements cards for traditional milestones, such as weddings, baby showers, retirement, anniversaries and baptism ceremonies. You’ll also find designs for festive gatherings like New Year’s Eve parties and seasonal holiday parties.
If you don’t see a design for your particular event, reach out to Graphic Design Services – they can tweak one of our existing templates or create something entirely custom just for you.
Yes. You’ll have the chance to add envelopes after you’ve designed your cards. We offer multiple styles, including coloured envelopes and custom envelopes made to match your invites. You can also skip envelopes altogether (though we highly recommend including them).
There are lots of fun, simple ways to gussy up your invites. To start, choose an eye-catching template that matches your party theme. Then get creative with the details – when customizing your invite, feel free to explore our various colour options or embellish your card with gold foil or rounded corners.
And don’t forget the accompanying stationery – a richly coloured envelope will help your invite stand out in the mail, while a pretty envelope seal or return address label adds that perfect final touch.
