Custom Invitations: BBQ Edition

stu60thinviteCustom Invites: BBQ Edition!

A large chunk of my projects involve creating invitation designs, but this was my first time creating an invitation for a male client having a backyard BBQ. Instead of pulling out my floral and feminine graphics I got to create something a little more masculine for meat lovers!

The invitation was for my father-in-law’s 60th birthday party. Papa Stu is a much-loved man and so my mother-in-law worked her butt off to throw one helluva birthday bash!

I used cool greys and red as an accent colour, and stuck to fonts with that “grungy” or “cowboy” feel. Add a few fun BBQ graphics and we have ourselves an invitation fit for a BBQ king.

I’m slowly collecting and working on the different invitation designs I’ve created over the years, and am planning to sell them online. When I create custom designs, more time is generally put into the project making the overall cost much higher. These pre-made designs are going to be for the budget-friendly client, giving them an opportunity to purchase a high-quality design at a much lower cost. My goal is to have an online shop up in the next 2 weeks. Stay tuned for more details!

Thanks for reading!
