"This was the perfect baby shower invitation for a Woodland Critters theme. Shutterfly offers flexibility in choices of text, font type & color, & background."
"They were pretty cute. Nice quality too."
"The product was wonderful, however, delivery method was less than acceptable. The UPS delivery was passed off to the USPS. The USPS failed miserably and held onto the package for days without my permission."
"These came out great!"
"Absolutely love Shutterfly! Perfect product as always!"
White is clean and fresh, making it an ideal color for baby shower invitations. If you want white to be the standout color, then you need to be careful how you use other colors and embellishments on your white baby shower invitations. Here are some tips to make sure other colors don't overpower your white invitations.
While overexposure isn't used in photos where you desire a lot of detail, it does make for pictures with a lot of white space. When done properly, overexposure makes a unique look that is soft and light. A picture of a sleeping child or some flowers works well for this kind of shot. You can also use filters to take an ordinary photo and brighten it for your baby shower invitations. This example shows a sample overexposed picture.
Modify your text to be less colorful by making it slim instead of bold. This makes your text readable without taking away from the white backdrop of the rest of your invitations. This yellow baby shower invite shows an example of pale, slim text that is still legible and perfect for a baby shower. Other colors are available depending on the gender of your arriving baby.
When you do add some color, try to keep it all in one place. This not only makes it stand out but keeps the rest of your invitation looking white. Where you place this splash of color is up to you.
Creating a white or black baby shower invitation is easy with the many tools available on Shutterfly's website. You can upload your own photos into our layouts or upload your own design. To get the perfect design, you can also save your progress and come back to it with a fresh set of eyes.
