Spring is a time that brings flowers…and graduations! And what accompanies graduations? Parties to celebrate!
Make your affair one to remember with well-crafted invitations. After all, it’s your time to shine after years of dedication and hard work. (This new phase and transition in life luckily brings cake.)
1. This invitation uses not one but four (at least) different fonts. For one invitation it’s a lot, but it keeps things interesting. The designer also has a subtle nod to the West based on the choice of decorated type.
2. Never underestimate the power of a good photograph! Here we see the graduate transition from a baby to a young woman. All of the photos are clear and really improve the overall look and quality of the invitation.
3. There’s a graduation invitation for a graduate student. The emphasis here is on the degree earned. In this case, the masters of science phrase was accented by cute illustrations.
4. A limited color invitation that’s made some great choices in fonts for a clear design.
5. This is a lovely use of big and well-shot photography. The choice to have the graduate on one side is well thought-out and makes for an eye-catching design.
6. Who says invites have to be all business? This one is funny while reliving some sad truths (including microwavable meals and student loan payments).
7. Another great photo invitation. It has an extra special touch of hand-drawn type. If you have good hand writing, I'd recommend trying it! It's another way to brand your party and break free from convention.
8. This invitation is longer than normal, which makes it instantly stand out. The color treatment is subtle but nice. It also breaks up all of the information in an easy-to-digest way.
9. A chalkboard is a great idea for an invitation. I think it could be even better with some added texture to make it feel even more authentic.
10. Think about adding some pattern to jazz up your text-heavy invitation. Is there one you really like or wear a lot in your clothing? Polka dots and paisley are both great options.
Graduating to big kid invitations!
Many invitations use too much text, so it’s important to consider what fonts you’ll use. Make the fonts easy to read, and try several different sizes that look good up close as well as a little farther away (all relative to how far it is from your face). Remember to vary your type design to keep your invitation fresh and lively.
