Invitation Sizes


Choose the Right Invitation Size for your Event


Every party needs its corresponding invitation. If you're in a movie, you can compare invitations to a trailer. It tells people what the event is all about, and gives them a glimpse of what's coming. 


Choosing the appropriate invitation size for your event is important. A jumbo-sized invitation would appear too loud and obnoxious for an intimate party for family and friends. While a mini-sized invitation is not advisable for a open-to-all-party-all-night event.  Although you can come up with your own custom measurements, knowing the standard sizes gives you more choices.
