You can make interesting 21st-birthday invitations by combining photos, graphics and technology. Simple activities related to your life are the best resources for birthday invitations that guests will enjoy. Choose 21st-birthday-invitation ideas that reflect your current interests, party theme or future goals.

Video Scrapbook Invitation

Record a birthday greeting for your guests using a webcam or video camcorder. The greeting should include information about your birthday celebration such as activities, themes, dress codes, time, date, location and RSVP instructions. Hire a video editor to create a video invitation for your 21st-birthday celebration. Provide the editor with photographs that represent each year of your life up to 20 years of age. Instruct the video editor to assemble these photographs in a slideshow with background music and graphics. Instruct the editor to add your recorded video greeting at the end of the photo slideshow. The finished video invitation can be put on DVD or made into a media file that you can upload to websites or send in e-mails to guests.

Customised Blackjack Hand

Hire a graphic designer or fine artist to create multiple playing-card sets that feature a blackjack hand. Each set should include two cards: an ace of spades and a jack of spades. Instruct the designer to replace all text above the large spade graphic on the ace card with your birthday greeting. Repeat this step for the text below the graphic to include a date, location, time and related information. The back side of each card can feature a collage of your favourite colours and interests as an alternative to standard card designs.

Agree on a specific number of sets to accommodate all guests who will receive these 21st-birthday invitations. Punch a hole in the lower right corner of the jack card and in the lower left corner of the ace. Put both cards in each set together using a ribbon, yarn or solid brass fasteners. Send these invitations to guests in square envelopes or tin craft boxes.

Photo Postcard Invitation

Take a photo that represents the theme of your 21st-birthday celebration using a 35mm or digital camera. Upload the photo to your computer and save it as a JPEG or GIF file. Create a double-sided postcard using an online printing service that makes personalised photo gifts. Add your photo to the front of the postcard and type a birthday greeting and party information on the back. Order enough postcards to cover the number of guests you want to invite. Mail one to each guest as a postcard or inside a colourful envelope.
