When to send university event invitations

When it comes to sending university event invitations, timing is everything. If you want your invite to be remembered amongst the sea of emails, texts, and social media notifications that students are bombarded with daily, you'll need to choose the right moment to send it.

The best time to send an invitation for a university event is typically a week or two in advance. It's no surprise that students have busy schedules. It can be difficult to fit anything else between social lives and study. So it's essential to provide enough notice so that your guests don't already have plans without giving them too much notice, which causes them to forget your event and double book. However, it's worth noting that if your event is particularly popular or anticipated, you may want to send the invitations out even earlier. We recommend sending invitations at least a month in advance for occasions such as dances and trips.

The benefits of sending online college event invitations

As if ridding you of the need of stuffing countless envelopes and licking stamps wasn't enough, creating your invitations with Paperless Post gives you a host of other benefits worth bragging about too! We offer a wide selection of premium designs, all of which come with helpful event management tools including RSVP tracking that allows you to stay on top of who is attending and who isn't. Our guest messaging feature can be utilized if you think someone has forgotten to RSVP or if you want to keep your guests up to date on any plan changes.
