Few things are more impressive to clients and employees than a grand reception. A well-executed corporate reception will showcase your company's commitment to excellence and leave a lasting impression of your company's success. Alongside the benefits for your brand, your employees can also reap the rewards of client receptions by mingling with other industry professionals and expanding their professional network.
Choosing the right reception invitation template goes a long way in making a strong first impression. A well-designed corporate reception invitation shows your invitees that your event is worth attending, and will help them remember the date and timing (especially if they add it to their online calendar directly from the invite).
When you use Paperless Post, you will discover a whole host of event invitation templates designed by our talented in-house team, ready for you to add your finishing touches. Or choose from a wide range of templates by our wonderful designer partners, including kate spade new york and Felix Doolittle. No matter what style of business reception you’re hosting, from business cocktail receptions to formal galas, you're sure to find the perfect design to suit the occasion.
Once you’ve chosen your reception invitation design, it’s time to customize your invitation template with our user-friendly design tool. Start by adding your text, including important basic details like the date and time of your event, along with the location and RSVP-by date.
In order to not crowd your beautiful invitations, we recommend including additional event details in our informational Blocks rather than on the invitation itself. This allows the invitations to look clean and professional, without sparing any info. With Blocks, you can include a Google Maps link to your venue, dress code, and ticketing information, and even highlight guest speakers with bios and photos. Choose a Page Style that fits the tone of your event for an extra customized feel.
You can further customize your invitations by selecting fonts you love. Be sure to choose something that matches your template style to give the invite a cohesive appearance. Then, select your colors. Choose a font color that complements your invite style, and try picking a tone that already appears subtly on the design for a professional look. If you’re interested in branding your invitations, you can upload your company’s logo to any template—some even have a space designated for a logo specifically. Finally, choose an eye-catching envelope and liner to make your invite pop. If you want, you can upload your own stamp and backdrop, too.
With every corporate reception invitation you design with Paperless Post, you get access to our follow-up tools to help make your event planning a breeze. Our RSVP tracker is your saving grace when it comes to keeping up to date with the latest headcount for your reception. Your guest list will automatically update as each person RSVPs, so you always have access to the most up-to-date figures. Our guest messaging tool allows you to stay in touch with guests and send updates to groups or individuals in seconds. Are you missing a few RSVPs, or do you want to send a reminder about your event as the day draws close? With our guest messaging tool, you can do so in just a few clicks, and even schedule reminders ahead of time.
