Instructions

1. Read the Terms of Use further down on the page before downloading.

2. Download the design you prefer

Click on an image thumbnail in the right column and a larger version will appear. When you see the larger size, double-click it to make an even larger version open in a pop-up window. If you have a Mac, control-click the invitation graphic until you see the option to save the image to your hard drive. If you use a PC, right-click with your mouse to save the image to your hard drive.

3. Paste the template into software

These 50th birthday invitations are in the correct proportions to fit into "A7" or "A4" envelopes. To fit those envelope sizes, the final invitations should be 5" high x 7" wide (A7) or 3 1/2" x 4 7/8" (A4). If you'll be distributing them personally, however, you can make them any size you want.

If you own Quark, Publisher or another publishing program, you probably know how to position the artwork for printing already. But if you don't happen to have one, you can use Microsoft Word instead. The instructions below are for use with Word, and they will cause you to have one image on a page. You can also use more than one invitation per page through the use of text boxes or a table. You need to know how to use one of those features to do so, though, but you can learn about them by consulting Word's help menu.

To begin, locate the image on your hard drive that you downloaded in step 1 and insert it into a new document using MS Word's picture insertion menu. In Word 2007, you can find this by selecting the Insert tab and then clicking the Picture button. (Check the help menu for instructions if you have a different version of Word.) When you click on the Picture button, a pull-down menu will appear that will give you the opportunity to locate the downloaded art on your hard drive and insert it into your document.

Once you've inserted the artwork into a document, click on the image, which will make it "editable." You can then size it by dragging one of the corners with your mouse until the graphic measures 5" x 7" or any other size you want. (Be sure to drag from one of the corners, not the sides, or you'll distort the image.) You might find it challenging to measure the art on your computer screen, so just get the size close to what you want and print a draft copy. You can then measure that printed copy with a ruler to check the size. Keep adjusting and printing until the art is the exact size you want.

4. Print

When you're satisfied you have the correct size, print as many invitations as you want using the thickest cardstock your printer will take. You can check the maximum thickness of card stock allowed for your printer by visiting the manufacturer's Web site or reading the printer's manual.

5. Cut

For best results, use a paper cutter or take the printed invitations to a copy center or an instant print shop to be cut. If you'll cut them yourself, make sure to align the card stock carefully and check the measurements on the paper cutter before you cut.
