If you’re planning to throw a baby shower soon, you should be able to send out your invites a month before the event. Why do you need to do this? The guests you want to attend may have other plans and you need to inform them early about your party so that they can plan around the date. If you’re not keen on spending a lot on invitations, you can use free printable invites from the internet.
Invitations, although there are nothing more than pieces of cardboard with designs on them, are expensive. Try ordering from a site that sells these in bulk. You will be spending a lot on shipment and printing. If you invest time and effort, you may be able to lessen the costs. But before you go for a complete do-it-yourself, remember that designing your own invitations will also take too much time, and you may just end up with a collection of pixel images that wouldn’t look like a cohesive design. You can do much better using free printables.
What Are Free Printable Baby Shower Invitations?
These invitations are offered by websites in the form of templates. What you do is to download these and save them in your hard drive for editing and printing. Some templates are offered in direct print format (PDF), while others are offered as images (JPG or PNG) that you can edit using an image processor. Any image processor can be used, including MS Paint. You can also use Adobe Photoshop
What Are the Benefits of Using Free Printable Baby Shower Invitations?
You can keep the costs low because one download is equivalent to many printed invitations. As long as you have the ink, you can print the invitation over and over. You can also control what kind of paper you use to print these invitations. Use good quality cardboard, in your theme color: blue if you expect a boy, and pink if you expect a girl.
Why Are These Free?
You may wonder why some people are giving away free printables. This is because the printables may be a part of a promotion for you to sign up for more designs. The free ones may be the ones at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to design quality. These printables companies hope that when you enjoy their free designs, you may also want to use the premium designs, which are usually the ones that really feature the best designs.
