  1. 1

    Choose an online site providing the types of invitations you want to circulate. Select from invitation creation providers with options to customise with special fonts, colours, backgrounds, invitation verbiage and images. Make invitations you can print and distribute personally or by mail.

  2. 2

    Browse the site's available birthday party invitation templates. Choose invitations matching the type of party you're throwing. Select, for example, birthday invitations with child-friendly images for a toddler's birthday party. Click on a surprise birthday party template for a party you want to hide from the celebrant.

  3. 3

    Edit the invitation template to include the party details. Replace default text with the celebrant's name. Use the default content to give you an idea of what kind of information to enter. Delete any default lines you don't need.

  4. 4

    Select font and colours from the site's design options. Coordinate colours according to the honoree's favourite colours or according to the type of party. Use, for instance, a script font for a formal affair.

  5. 5

    Create a document to print or to send as an e-mail attachment. Save the document -- usually a PDF file -- to your computer desktop for easy access.

  6. 6

    Print your customised invitations on card stock. Hand out your custom birthday party invitations or mail them. Attach the invitations to e-mail messages and send them with ease.
