Free BBQ Party Invitations Templates

Updated on May 27, 2018

It was a no-brainer for me to make these free printable invitations, because barbeque is one of my very favorite types of food. Ironically, I don't actually have BBQ equipment. We live on a golf course (that's less glamorous than it sounds, because golf course are almost as ubiquitous in South Florida as skyscrapers are in Manhattan) and we have just a small screened-in patio separating our house from the golfers. I never liked the idea of putting valuables where others can see (let alone take) them, so we'll have to wait for the next house to have a killer BBQ. But I sure don't mind eating BBQ made by other people! So if anyone in South Florida who wants to use these to invite me to your next party, feel free!

Actually, we were invited to the mother of all cookouts, courtesy of Hurricane Wilma in 2005. Everyone in our neighborhood was without power for several days, which could have been a nightmare because the stores were closed and there was no food available if you didn't already have it in your house. But our neighbor at the end of the block rose to the occasion and rounded up all the barbeques he could find. He then had his friends who owned restaurants bring over all their food before it defrosted. So, over the course of several nights, we ate filet mignon, crab, chicken and all manner of other goodies, while a fire pit in the center of his driveway warmed the uncharacteristically chilly October air. We met people on our street we had never even seen before and went to sleep in our very dark house each night with our bellies quite full. There were no BBQ invitations needed then, but if your next gathering is a little less impromptu, you might find these free printable invitation templates helpful!

Instructions

1. Download the template you like

Click on a thumbnail to the right and a larger version of it will appear. When you see it larger, double-click on it. That will cause a larger version to appear. If you have a PC, right-click with your mouse to save the image to your hard drive. If you have a Mac, control-click the invitation image until a menu appears with the option to save to your hard drive.

2. Paste the artwork into a software program

These templates have been formatted to fit into standard A7 size envelopes. That means that if you want the invitations to fit those standard envelopes, they should be 5" x 7". If you'll be handing these out in person, however, you can obviously make them whatever size you want.

If you have Quark, Publisher or another publishing program, you probably already know how to paste these into place. But if you don't have to have one of those programs; you can easily use Microsoft Word. I'm going to give instructions for the simplest method for using Word that will put one image on a page. If you're an advanced user, however, you can paste more than one invitation on a page by using a table or text boxes.

Find the image you downloaded in step 1 and insert it by using Word's picture insertion function. You can locate this function in Word 2007 by selecting the Insert tab and clicking on the Picture button. (See Word's help menu for instructions on inserting pictures if you have a different version of Word.) Clicking the Picture button will bring up a pull-down menu, which you should use to locate the artwork on your hard drive so you can insert it.

Once you've inserted it, click on the image to cause it to be editable. You can then size it by dragging one of the corners with your mouse until the image measures 5" x 7" or whatever size you choose. You may find it difficult to measure in Word, so just get in the ballpark and then print a copy so you can check the size. Once printed, measure the invitation with a ruler, and then make adjustments until it's the size you want.

3. Print

Once you've got the size correct, you can print as many invitations as you'd like. Be sure to use the heaviest cardstock your printer will allow, so the final result won't be flimsy. You can verify the maximum thickness card stock that will go through your printer by checking the printer manual or the printer manufacturer's Web site.

4. Cut

To achieve the best results, use a paper cutter or take the final printed versions to an instant print shop or a copy center to be cut. If you'll be cutting them yourself, be sure to look at the measurements on the paper cutter and align the size perfectly before you cut.
