Making Your 50th Birthday Invitations

Once you have your wording and you have a sketch of what you would like them to look like, you have three options.

  • Break out the craft supplies and make the invitations by hand
  • Get in touch with a company that makes invitations
  • Create the invitations on the computer with your desired software and print them out

But if you just don’t have the patience for designing your own, hire someone to do it for you. You can find graphic artists on, eBay, and Fiverr, just to name a few options.

Get the design done, then print your own invitation cards.  If you only pay $5 for the design, the rest is just your paper and ink (card stock).

With all this information in hand, you can make great, unique birthday invitations to send out to all your guests!
