4. Adjust the Shadows

The graphic provided looks great in the invitation. But it could be improved. To help give the graphic a more three-dimensional look, we'll add a shadow.

Start by double-clicking the graphic. A menu appears on the right side of the screen with a bunch of drop-down menus. Click on the Shadow drop-down menu.

We'll adjust the transparency slider to add in a shadow to the graphic. Drag the slider to 72%. This adds a subtle shadow that makes the graphic pop.

5. Adjust Brightness & Contrast

Our final adjustment is to the graphic. We want to make sure the graphic is front and center.

To do this, we'll adjust the Brightness and Contrast. Double-click on the graphic again. Navigate to the menu that popped up on the right and click the icon with an image on it.

Then click the Picture Corrections drop-down menu. Change the Brightness to 5% and the Contrast to -7%. This subtle change helps lift the graphic on the invitation.

5 Quick MS Word Invitation Design Tips for 2023

Here are some design tips to help guide you when choosing and customizing your invitation template:

1. Use the Right Font

This premium invitation flyer has a font that's easy to read.

Using the right font is really important when choosing and editing your party invitation template in Word. Use a font that can be easily read. You may be tempted to use really fancy fonts can be tempting, but sometimes they're hard to read.

Also, it's best to choose a font that matches the theme of your invitation. If the font doesn’t match the theme, the invitation can look sloppy.

2. Use the Right Layout

There are several different types of layouts you can choose for your party invitation template in Word. It's best to choose the layout that suits the occasion. For example, if you’re having a carnival-themed birthday party, then an invitation that looks like an admission ticket is a good choice.

3. Use the Right Colors

This premium invitation flyer uses colors that go well together.

Use colors that go well with the theme of your party. For example, if you’re having a summer BBQ party, then a red and green party invitation template in Word could be confusing for your guests. Y

You also want to choose colors that go well together so that your invitation can be easily read. For example, if your invitation has a black background and you choose a dark purple font, the invitation would be hard to read.

4. Consider a Bundle

One of the great benefits of Envato Elements is that they've got party invitation templates for Word that come in bundles. This means that if you’re throwing a baby shower, for example, then you could get a bundle template that gives you a matching invite, RSVP card, and more. These bundles make it easy to have a theme and stick to it.

5. Use an Image
