How to Design and Personalize Blank Invitations for Your Baby Shower

For the hostess with a tight budget that doesn’t like the look of the free, printable blank invitations that are offered online, there are options that will save money and give the look of engraved invitations for a relatively cheap price. The secret is to buy cute, blank baby shower invitations and write your own poems or wording to include on the back of the postcards or the inside of the folded invitations.


No matter how rich and creamy the cardstock or how colorful the ink in your inkjet printer cartridge may be, it’s very hard to compete with an invitation with colored print and pictures done by a professional. Should you bite the bullet and spend a large portion of your baby shower budget on expensive invitations? Unless you are rich with a money tree growing in the back yard with cash to burn, absolutely not.

You can print your own embossed baby shower invitations using blank invitations that have brilliant colors and cute designs for a fraction of the cost of custom invitations. Blank party invitations or shower invitations come in all styles, sizes and shapes.

Poems for Invitations


You can buy square, oval or rectangular cards with trendy designs around the edges with a large, blank area in the center where you can print a poem, wording, shower details or a personalized message from the hostess or guest of honor. Some hostesses print pictures in a medallion on the front of the blank baby shower invitations and use the inside of the folding card or the back of the postcard as a space reserved for details and some cute, original poetry serving as an announcement.

Blank baby shower invitations printed with pink or blue baby footprints with complimentary pink or blue motifs or designs are an excellent choice for a shower where the baby has already arrived or the sonogram has tipped mom off as to the sex of the baby. If you aren’t privy to that information, mint green designs would be the best gender neutral choice.

Do some comparison shopping and see how much cheaper the price for blank invitations for baby showers might be than custom cards from a professional printer or stationery store. As always, shop the discounts and sales or you might even find some bargains through an online auction. Perhaps another hostess had some blank baby shower invitations left over from her party that are in a package that has been opened and therefore offered at a deep discount off of the original retail price.

Cute ideas on what you can do with blank invitations for a baby shower are limited only by the free clip art, fonts and colors of ink so check out the available selection and get creative. Design something cool and unique on your blank invitations that will label you as the hostess of the season and we are the only ones that know how inexpensive your invitations actually were.
