When my sister-in-law contacted me about a surprise retirement party she wanted to throw for her Dad, I was thrilled because that meant another opportunity to let my creative juices flow! Time to design her a custom Retirement Party Invitation! The design started out with a specific color palette of white and red, with accents in blue. We decided to use blue envelopes to accomplish the accent color.
Her Dad is a USPS Postmaster, so she wanted to incorporate some sort of postal stamp in the design. So, we used vintage stamp graphics and a vintage graphic border. Then we added dark red to the color palette to add “interest” and “depth”. And choosing fun font types is my favorite part of the custom design process. Many times, I like to browse all the fonts until I see one that really catches the “vibe” I’m looking for. The mix of font types really evolved the design into a super cool invitation. Who says a retirement party invitation can’t be “cool”!
If your Dad is retiring from his Police job, then we can customize the graphics to fit his job description! Instead of the vintage stamps, we can use his actual Police Badge as a graphic on the invitation! Check out all our other fun Event Invitations.
