How to make free printable baby shower invitations

If you are looking to hold a baby shower for a friend or loved one, one of the best ways to add a personal touch and save some money is by printing off your own invitations to send out. This can be done in a variety of ways and with several different tools both online and on your own computer. It does not have to be a difficult process and can be a lot of fun depending on how you go about it. This article will share some tips on how to make free printable baby shower invitations.

How to find printable templates to download

With a Google search for "free printable baby shower invitations" you should be able to find a wide variety of layouts, designs, greetings, and formats for your baby shower event. You may want to write up a brief draft of the information you will need to put on the card and how you would like it to look. For many of the printable baby shower invitations you can find online, you can merely open them up in a Word processor and input the information you need on the card, choose your font and then print it off using your own printer choosing an economy mode or full color print. If you are more ambitious and creative and would like to try your own hand at making free printable baby shower invitations, you can use a program such as Microsoft Publisher and select from their choice of templates, add clipart photos or real photos of the family, and design your own layout where you would like the wording to go, etc. You would then just merely print out your shower invitations when completed to your satisfaction. Add a poem or song you have written or anything that would add a touch of personality to the card and show how much you care about the mother to be.

Use the best materials

When you choose to make and print your own baby shower cards, you can decide on the quality and weight of the card stock you use. You can choose to use a color cardstock or just a plain white paperstock. While the standard size for invitations are 8 1/2" by 11", you can choose to use whatever size you would like if you want a smaller version. If you do not have a quality printer, you can merely print off the first copy of your baby shower card and then take it over to a print shop like Office Depot or Kinkos and have them print in better colors and glossy card stock.
