Do it yourself baptism invitations

A baptism celebrates the beginning of one's religious life. When the baptism is for a new baby, friends and family are typically invited to attend the event. Invitations that are personalised make nice keepsakes and are often stored away in scrapbooks or memory albums for years to come.

There are a couple of simple ways to create your own do-it-yourself baptism invitations.


Use your computer to upload photos of the baptismal candidate, and visit one of several online sites that feature personalised cards and invitations. Shutterfly, Snapfish and Kodak Gallery are just three of numerous sites that print affordable and tasteful invitations that you can personalise with your own photos and text. You then simply order the number of invitations you'd like to have and they will be shipped to you within a few days.

Retail Option

Visit your local card store and purchase blank invitations that feature window openings where you can insert your own photos. This option allows you to make your own baptism invitations, using your photos and text, but without the wait of shipping of custom ordered invitations.

Print At Home

Download free software from the internet to make and print your own baptism invitations at home. Unique Gift Maker Greeting Card is just one free option that will allow you to design your own invitations, which you can then print out on card stock or printer paper. This is likely the most economical of your baptism invitation choices.
