"Great quality card made from personal photo and personalized captions. Sometimes a store bought card doesn't capture the sentiment you're trying to portray. This is a fantastic option to create your own!"
"If you love one of your photos, turn it into a card! Whether it's a Thank you card, a sympathy card, a birthday card or any other kind of card, it'll turn out great!"
"Great, professional results"
"quick and easy. Great pricing."
"I love these cards and have ordered many over the years. The paper is very nice and heavy for both the cards and envelopes."
Turning 13 is a huge rite of passage in the Jewish community, celebrated by holding a bar/bat mitzvah. Sending out contemporary bar mitzvah invitations to family and friends is a must if you want to have a large party to celebrate your child's coming of age. Here are some ideas for designing the layout of these invitations.
Focusing on Your Child
Some layouts feature one large photo, meaning you can choose one that puts your child in the best possible light. This could be a school picture or one taken during a recent vacation. Since you're celebrating growing up, you may want to avoid baby pictures. You should try to show how proud you are of your child entering the ranks of adulthood.
Other layouts let you put multiple pictures on your invitations, allowing you to get creative. You can include photos of musical instruments played by your child or recent craft projects alongside a professional headshot. It is also common to use one or more family photos, such as those taken with siblings, parents or grandparents.
Checking Important Information
After choosing your photos and designing your layout, it's important that all the details on your bar/bat mitzvah invitations is correct. This includes the date, time and location of the party and any other important information guests need. If the event will be at a fancy venue, you might want to include a dress code, and if you or your child has a preferred charity to direct donations instead of a gift, you can add an address or website where these can go.
Designing a contemporary bar/bat mitzvah invitation is as easy as a few mouse clicks. You can always save your progress and come back later to tweak it to perfection. Whether you use photos is up to you, and if you want to give your child a taste of responsibility, you can get him or her involved in designing the cards and compiling the addresses for recipients.
