How do I design a custom birthday party invitation?

First, browse our 1,000s of design templates or upload your own invitation. Then, it’s time to customize! Our simple and seamless process isn’t just easy to follow, you’ll also have fun as you flex your creative muscles to bring your party vision to life.

Start off by adding your party name, host, and details. These help ensure your birthday invitation provides the need-to-know info in a succinct and stylish way. After you’ve covered the logistics, it’s time to start formatting. Our design tools allow you to coordinate and refine every detail—change the font and colors, choose a coordinating backdrop, stamp, and envelope, and add Page Styles—you’re the boss when it comes to giving your birthday invitation a personalized touch.

If you have any questions or want some expert help along the way, our Personal Design Services team is ready to provide you with assistance throughout your creation process.

How far in advance should I send birthday invitations out?

If you’re throwing an at-home bash and the final numbers don’t hold a huge amount of importance, four weeks before the day is plenty of time to send your birthday invitations. If you’ve booked a venue or special services and the final numbers matter, sending them out five to six weeks ahead of time is best.

With Paperless Post, you’ll have access to RSVP tracking that helps you manage your guest list and easily follow up with guests who have not yet responded.
