Whether you’re planning a small gathering or a big celebration, make sure to start it off right with personalized photo invitations. Your guests will be thrilled to receive them, and you’ll love the way they set the tone for your special day. Let us help you create the perfect invites that will make your event one that your guests will never forget!

Follow our step-by-step guide to constructing a great photo invite and you’ll be partying with everyone before you know it.

Make it unique and personal

Celebrate in style, whether you’re planning a relaxed family celebration or a full-on formal black tie event, photo invitations are the perfect way to get the party started. 

Using photos in your design helps you create a more unique, personal, and meaningful invitation, making the person you’re sending it to feel special. Plus, they make great keepsakes. 

Find the perfect photo

Depending on the event there are endless picture options to choose from. Take your time and find something that looks just right. Search those family albums, get your phone out, and scroll through all the photo memories you have – you’re bound to find an amazing picture that captures just what you want to say in your invitation.

Think about how the photo you use will work with the shape and design of your card, and how the colors will complement each other to create a stunning, eye-catching result that will capture your guests’ imagination.

Creating a birthday party photo invite? For a 10th, 21st, 60th, or even 100th birthday party invite, a throwback picture of the birthday girl or boy makes a great choice. Don’t forget to sprinkle in a few embarrassing moments – they’re always a firm fave!

For a wedding invitation, a beautiful photo of the two of you, or an engagement picture showing off that big rock are always winners. Set a typically romantic tone for your card by using TouchNote's beautiful range of decorative design features. 

A Christening calls for a photo of your precious new bundle of joy. And, let’s be honest, you’ve probably taken hundreds of photos of your gorgeous little one in the past few months. 

It’s a fun and exciting time when someone leaves and moves on to bigger things, though they will be missed. Create an invite with a memorable photo that everyone will want to keep. Include a picture of the guest of honor with their friends, family, or even colleagues, depending on if they’re moving home, country, or job. 

For a Halloween get-together, try photos of your house decorated in cobwebs, bats, and spiders. Or, add a special freaky selfie of you and your significant other dressed as scary zombies or Dracula and his bride. 

For Christmas, family pictures with Christmas sweaters are a great go-to. You can also get into the holiday spirit with a spectacular photo of your house covered in snow with twinkling festive lights.

Choose an awesome design

TouchNote has hundreds of great designs for any occasion. So why not put one beside your chosen photo to cement yours as the best photo invite? Visit the website and browse all of our designs — from fun and trendy to sentimental and emotional, funny and humorous to downright mushy. You’re bound to find something exactly right for you and your party.

Let’s get creative 

Add text to the front of your card to let them know what the event itself is, then add stickers from our premium collection, a photo stamp that reflects the occasion, and perhaps even a map of where the event will take place.

A message that says it all

Don’t forget to include all the vital information your guests will need: 

The name of the person invited

The guest of honor’s name (if there is one) 

Date and time of the event

And of course, the venue where it is being held.

If you have a dress code then this is the time to tell them, as well as how they can RSVP. It might also be quite helpful to let them know if they should bring a gift.

You’re almost done – you’ve got the perfect design, given them all the details they need and added your personal note, so all that’s left to do now is hit ‘send’. With TouchNote, it really is that easy! 

Unleash your inner designer and create a unique personalized photo invite for family and friends, asking them to come and celebrate a special event with you. TouchNote makes it super easy to design something heartwarming and special that your loved ones will keep as a treasured memory for many years to come.
