It also works well with printers and is easy to cut out at home with scissors or an X-Acto knife.

When designing invitations for a magic show birthday party, many options are available, including fonts, colours and clip art. The best design is the simplest.

Keep your invites clean and straightforward.

The first thing you should do is decide if you want a flat or folded invitation design.

Decide whether you want a flat or folded invitation.

Flat invitations are generally easier to create and send out than folded invitations because they do not require envelopes (unless specifically requested by your guests).

However, if you plan to add inserts like directions or a map, you may consider using a folded invitation design instead.



Here are standard birthday invitation sizes.

Flat birthday invitation sizes:

  • 5 x 7" (12.7 x 17.8 cm)

  • 4 x 6 (10.2 x 15.2 cm)

  • 4.5 x 6.25 (11.4 x 15.9cm)

  • 3.5 x 5" (8.9 x 12.7cm)

  • 4 x 6 is 8 x 6 unfolded design

  • 4.5 x 6.25 is 9 x 6.25 unfolded design

Tips & Suggestions

  • Use readable fonts. Stick to one or two fonts only. Avoid cursive fonts.

  • Use a large font for important information. The name and date should be large and stand out.

  • Keep it simple. Avoid complicated designs.

  • Avoid tacky clip art. Clip art can make an invitation look dated. Keep it fresh by using high-quality photos or stock images.

  • Use an online design tool. Use online design tools like Adobe Express or Canva.
