|How to Use the Free Printable Invitation Maker|
First Choose Your Invitation Style
The first tab, "Edit Text", displays the text editing mode of the Invitation Maker. Here you can edit the default text by deleting or replacing the lines you wish to include for your event. If you want to leave a line blank, click on the small box adjacent to the line of text and it will be cleared. To change a line, click and drag your mouse across the text to select it and then replace it with the appropriate text for your event. Follow the format given for best results (the top text introduces the event, the large type above the image is the title of the event or the name's of the honoree(s), then date, time, and location. The three small lines at the bottom can be used for special instructions or RSVP information.
Under the second tab, you can change the colors of your invitation. Each design uses three colors. First is the design accent color, second is the text and border color, last is a background. The default setting has a white background, but you can add any color you choose - or if you'd like to save ink while printing leave the background white.
Once you are happy with your customization of the invitation it's time to choose your PDF format. You will not be able to generate a PDF until you select what format you want created. You have three size options when creating your free printable PDF invitations. The first two options are created to be printed on regular 8.5" x 11" paperr. "4 cards per page" or quarter-page invitations print four to a sheet on letter paper. "2 cards per page" or half-page invitations print two larger invitation cards on a standard letter page. "Single card" formating creates one single 5" x 7" card. This is the best option if you plan to email PDF invitations to some or all of your invitees as opposed to printing the invitations. Or, for invitations that require no cutting, buy 5" x 7" photo or specialty paper and print single cards out.
