Design your own invitations

Can’t find what you’re looking for? Use our invitation maker template and online create tools to make your own invitations! For the best results we recommend you use a 300 DPI resolution file with our online invitation maker. The file sizing depends on which party invitation template you choose. Our most popular Upload Your Own Invitation template is tall, or vertical in orientation, and requires a file that’s 908 pixels wide x 1,272 pixels tall. It is the most popular of our DIY invitations online. Regardless of which card size you choose, you can make your own invitations using your own image or file —simply click directly in the card area. Then a menu will pop up on the left. You can select a photo from your Paperless Post library or select the button titled “Add Photo” to browse your device for a new one. After uploading your own photo, you can then choose from our selection of premium envelopes, liners, and backdrops for a complete invitation package. There are also gold, silver, and rose gold foil border designs to add a sparkling finish. If you do not need to add text over your image, don’t forget to highlight and delete the sample text with our required dimensions before sending.

Create your own invitation

If you need to upload a photo but want some space for text that does not overlay the photo, we also have Photo Cards in which the photo takes up only a portion of the card space. While this layout is often used for Holiday Cards, it is also perfect for kids birthday invitations, save the date cards, or graduation announcements. If you want to design your own invitations that are ready to print, you can visit Paper Source to turn your custom online design into printed perfection.

In addition to being able to design your own invitations on our Cards product, you can also incorporate your own custom artwork, GIF, or photo to our other online invitation product Flyer. Flyers can be easily customized on your mobile device too. We suggest sizing your Flyer image to 1,024 pixels wide x 1,024 pixels tall for the best results.

Need additional info on how to design your own invitations? You can read more on our Using your own artwork or photo FAQ page, which lists each card size available (and the sized file you need for best results). From there you can elect which one will work best given your artwork or photo.
