The Handwritten Invite


Simple, handwritten invitations for both casual and formal affairs are fun, easy and feel personal. Here’s how:

  • Use blank or personalized card stock you have on hand; to make things more festive, add an inked stamp of a fun icon.
  • Keep wording basic: Who/what, date, time, place and any R.S.V.P. information.
  • For a more old fashioned vibe, consider phrasing in terms of a question: “Won’t you come for drinks on Saturday?”
  • Use your own handwriting, as long as it’s legible!
