Photo birthday invitations

Whether depicting a toothy grin or a subtly sweet smile, photo birthday invitations are a welcoming way to invite guests to a celebratory get-together. If you’re planning your own birthday bash or helping out on behalf of someone else, a photo birthday invitation goes right along with the expectation of the day, giving the honoree the spotlight at all times. Discover our thoughtfully designed online birthday invitations that showcase a stationery-inspired look and offer plenty of behind-the-scenes guest management perks.

Milestone photo birthday invitations

Find milestone birthday invitations with photos to celebrate an honoree marking a quinceanera, hitting the legal drinking age, or starting a new decade. We have polished birthday invitation templates with photos or more humorous designs for the light-hearted.

Help narrow your search with our filters for specific colors, invitation shapes, and the number of photos. You can also view photo birthday invitations by specific designers—we’ve partnered with industry creatives to give you as many template options as possible, including fresh florals from Rifle Paper Co., playful picks from The Indigo Bunting, and bold, modern designs by Sugar Paper.

How do you create photo birthday invitations?

Once you find a template you love, click “customize.” Upload an image from your computer, and zoom in or rotate it so it fits your invitation design. Choose a matching backdrop and add stickers or text boxes. Then, edit the pre-worded information with your party details. Choose a stamp from one of our suggested designs, or upload your own—another photo of the honoree adds even more personalization to your invitations. Choose an envelope color, a patterned liner, and the font for the front of your envelope—and you’re done!

Our online design tools help you create your invitation in an effortless, streamlined way. If something comes up mid-creation, don’t worry—you always have the option to save your progress and come back later.

When do you send birthday invitations?

Four weeks out is the perfect time to send your birthday invitations. Add your contacts one by one, or upload via a spreadsheet. Send your photo birthday invitations right away via text, email, or shareable link—or if you’re extra prepared and create them early, you can schedule a time for our guest management platform to send them automatically. Once they’re delivered, the RSVP tracker keeps a constant tally of who’s coming, so you’ll always know exactly how many guests to expect on the big day.
