Once you have your basic information you can start deciding how you want your invitations to look and what kind of 50th birthday invitation you want to create.
The look may depend on your theme, so take a look back at what kind of theme you have and match your birthday invitations accordingly. So, if you have a specific theme or colors, incorporate these into your invitations as well. Take a second and make a quick sketch of how you want it to look...

Do you want to make a funny 50th invitation? Maybe something elegant? Do you want people to RSVP? If you want people to RSVP you need to include how they should RSVP.
When asking people to RSVP, decide on how you want them to do this. It can be by email, phone, or include a respond card and postage with your 50th birthday invitation.
Next on our list to create the perfect invitation is the wording to use. Now that we know the theme, the style, and a rough sketch of the look. We can decide on what we want it to say.
We've got some great wording for your 50th birthday party for you to check out.
Once you have your wording and you have a sketch of what you would like them to look like, you have three options.
#1: Break out the craft supplies and make the invitations by hand
#2: Get in touch with a company that makes invitations
#3:Create the invitations on the computer with your desired software and print them out.
But if you just don't have the patience for designing your own, hire someone to do it for you. You can find graphic artists on Etsy.com, Ebay, and Fiverr, just to name a few options.
Get the design, then print your own invitation cards. If you only pay $5 for the design, the rest is just your paper and ink (card stock).
With all this information in hand you can make great, unique birthday invitations to send out to all your guests!
Some other items that are helpful in ensuring your guests get to your party are banners and signs. These are nice to not only decorate at the venue but also in areas along the way to the desired area - especially if your party is in a hard to find area.
Now you are well on your way to having a great turnout of people at your 50th birthday party.
With the 50th birthday invitations, and the signs and banners, no one can forget or get lost on the way to your big even!
