How to customize car theme birthday invitations

Use our hassle-free design tools to customize your car birthday invitations. Change text styles and colors to make your wording stand out or coordinate with your party’s color scheme and add stickers to drive the party inspiration home. Once your invitation design is complete, choose a stamp, an envelope color, an envelope liner, and a playful backdrop to pull it all together.

What to include in a kids’ birthday invitation

All of our plane, train, and car invitations come with text, but you can change it as much as you like. Keep the wording short so your invitation design and details stand out. When editing your birthday invitation wording, include essential party logistics like the date, time, location, and RSVP-by date.

Play around with the text formatting, and either add additional text boxes or Blocks with additional information. Blocks allow you to add a schedule of events, travel info, photo galleries, videos, links, and more while ensuring your invitation design stays uncluttered and easy to read. They appear at the bottom of your invitation as guests scroll down, so there’s no chance they’ll be missed.

When to send kids’ birthday invitations

Send birthday invitations four weeks before the party date. If you're ahead of the game and it’s too early, schedule your invitations to be sent automatically. Pick a date, time, and delivery method—your kid’s birthday invitations can be sent via email, text, or shareable link—and we’ll get them out on your behalf.

How to decorate a plane, train, or car birthday party

Your invitation will do the heavy lifting when it comes to showcasing your kid’s birthday party theme, but with a few extra special details, the party venue can be just as stylish. Focus on party must-haves like decorations, entertainment, and serveware that feature car and construction vehicles, train motifs, and race car designs.
