Get inspiration from thousands of designer templates

Canva will never let you run out of ideas because we have thousands of editable inauguration invitation templates created by professional designers. All you have to do is, edit the text with your inauguration party details and you are good to go. You can also create your own invitation from scratch by starting with a blank layout and adding visual elements along with your party details.

To add venue and other information to your invitation, use Canva’s text tool which has pre-designed font combinations and typography. You can also go creative with over 130 available fresh fonts.

Customize the invitation by adding your own photos

You can upload pictures of your new home or business and add them to the invitation. Just click on the green ‘Upload your own image’ button, select the images from your computer, and add them to the design. In case you don’t have any images, you can pick one from Canva’s media library which has over a million images, vectors, and illustrations. Most of these elements are free, while only a few cost $1 for each one-time. To find related images, just use the search bar on top and type in a relevant keyword. Clicking on any of the images in the search results will automatically add it to the design. Don’t forget to use the grid and frame tool to position the visual elements correctly on the invitation.

Mail out printed invitations or share them online

If you plan to send out printed invitations to all the guests or personally hand over to them, then be sure to download the design in the PDF-Print format to get the highest print quality of 300 DPI (Dots per Inch).

Spread the inauguration invitation on your business’s social media page to create buzz by clicking on the ‘share’ button and directly posting the invite to Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. To email your invitation or share it through messaging apps like WhatsApp and Viber, download it in an image format (PNG, JPG, or SVG).


Can I collaborate with friends or colleagues to create the invitation?

Yes, you can! To invite other users to view your design, click on the share button and enter the email addresses of your friends or colleagues. If you would want them to edit the design, then checkmark the ‘can edit’ option or else select ‘can comment.’ They will be able to edit or comment on your design through their own Canva account.

Are there any limitations to the number of printouts?

If you are only using your own images or free images from Canva on your invite, then there is absolutely no limit to the number of printouts. But, if you have used paid elements from Canva’s media library in your design, then there is a limitation of 2000 prints. Don’t worry; you can easily increase the printout number by paying a little bit extra.

Can I use the same invitation design for later use?

Absolutely! Every design you create is saved in your Canva account which you can access anytime. You can edit those designs according to your requirements and reuse them easily.
