Creating a modern year-end invitation means using more creative, unique ideas that resonate better with today’s generation. Online design and printing services have been invaluable in helping to create catchy and attractive invitations, with incorporation of many innovative trends.

Let us look at some ideas that you can use with your graphic designers in Menlyn to create your own year-end invitations – ones that your attendees will keep in their drawers long after the day has come and gone.

What to expect in a modern invitation

  1. Lettering styles – use larger fancier fonts to highlight attendees’ names on the invite
  2. Ink colours – choose to separate ink colours to highlight important items on the invite such as event details – venue, date, time etc.
  3. Pockets – these are getting more stylish and hold the invites. There various designs so don’t be afraid to experiment. Have the brand logo somewhere on it.
  4. Self-mailing – instead of having a separate envelope for mailing, the pocket above can act as envelopes so you can mail invites as they are.
  5. Colours – choose bright, bold colours in line with the brand identity or party theme colours. Online design and printing services make it much easier with a vast array of shades to choose from. Beautifully blended colours give a striking impression.
  6. Shapes and sizes – choose distinct and unusual shapes and sizes, such as polygons, uneven squares, shapes of animals, flowers and others.
  7. Patterns – paisley and retro-motifs as borders or background are becoming increasingly popular.
  8. Envelope/paper colour – choose a design that will render well on solid-coloured paper, so that you can use coloured paper and envelopes, a common trend nowadays.
  9. Recycled paper – go eco-friendly by printing invitations on recycled paper. There are many beautiful and unique designs to choose from
  10. Embellishments – ribbons on pockets or on the card itself are popular. You can also use buttons, bows and other little trinkets to add some flare.

Contemporary-style invitations should highlight your brand identity while allowing you some wiggle-room to be creative. It is, after all, your year-end party, and you should go out in style.
