FAQ

Birthday invitations should cover who, what, when and where. Announce whose birthday is being celebrated, what kind of party or event is being planned, the date and time of the event and the location where it’s being held. Include contact information so that guests can RSVP.

Birthday invitations typically fall under the category of bigger-sized invitations, at 4 x 6 inches or 5 x 7 inches. This leaves enough room for photos, images or illustrations as well as party details while balancing it all out with white space.

Birthday invitation cards use a bright color scheme with colors that contrast each other, have an eye catching header, might use a color filter to make text pop out from the background and usually have one image as the focal point.
