Inviting friends and families to a youth festival properly is the first step to ensuring a successful festival. They are many themes and reasons for hosting a youth festival, but the invitation letters should always carry the same informative details. Since festivals vary in size, location and formality, you will need to design an invitation letter that focuses on the highlights of your youth festival. Designing the letter completely on your own, and not copying another festival invitations' format, will ensure that your invitation is just as unique as your festival.

Instructions

    Designing a Youth Invitation Letter

  1. 1

    Use a scratch piece of paper to draw out a sketch of your letter invitation. Determine the exact date, time and location of your youth festival and write all the necessary information down on this piece of paper, as it will serve as your reference when typing or writing your final invitation letter. Include highlights of the festival such as, "Rock Band Performance at 7:00 pm" or " Scavenger Hunt from 12:00-2:00 pm"

    If you plan on writing out your invitations by hand, using a Calligraphy Pen will give your writing a more formal look. You can also use a any kind of ink pen or marker, but do not use pencil. Pencil writing can become smudged and messy through mail transit. Pencil writing also will not show up when you make copies in a copy machine.

    Type your invitation using Microsoft Word. You can also utilise the borders and themes that Microsoft has already designed. Begin by opening a blank Word Document. On the top left corner of the Home Tab, find the Themes button and choose a Theme, which are a set of colours to use for typing. Type all relevant festival information, and then go to the Borders Tab and add a border of your choice. When you are finished use the printer and print as many needed.

    Finish making all copies of the hand written or printed invitation, then you can begin to embellish each invitation individually. Embellishments can be small gem stickers, glitter or ribbon.

Tips and warnings

  • If you mail youth invitation festival letters, make sure to include a return address. If you will not mail the letters, place them in a highly popular area, where people are sure to find them.
  • If you plan on using embellishments and then mailing youth invitation letters, be careful to not add too many embellishments, as this will make the letter heavier and may require more postage. Take the finished letters to the post office to be weighed.
