Summer is rapidly approaching and bringing with it the wide array of summer events – graduations, 4th of July, family reunions, all-things weddings, and so much more! Don’t overlook the importance of starting your big summer event off on the right foot. Namely, your invitations!

 Here are a few things to consider when designing your perfect invitation:

 Balance Between Text & Images

 Make sure to include a good balance of text and images and/or design elements in your invitations with the help of you local printing company. Be minimalistic with your text – include only the most pertinent event information so it is easy for your guests to get to the purpose of your invitation. You also want it to be easy for them to find and and follow through with RSVP requests and directions.

Contrast, Yet Complement

Don’t let the balance of text and imagery get lost in your invitation design! Important elements should catch your eye immediately, but masterfully blend into a well put together, overall invitation design. This can be achieved in many ways, such as bold colors, visual elements that pull your eyes towards a certain portion of the page, or variable scaling of elements.


It seems obvious, but don’t forget to consider the formality of your event. This may also dictate how comfortable you are with playing with design elements, such as bold colors and imagery. When working with your Nashville printing company, make sure to consider this in all design aspects, including font, colors, and invitation layout.
