40th Birthday Invitations & Thank You Notes — All Kinds of Ways to Say 40
Happy birthday to the newest member of the four-decade set!
A rich life of 40 years is something to celebrate, so inform friends and family of a milestone event with 40th birthday invitations in your choice of traditional die-cut, post card, printable, and custom.
So what is the difference, and what do these choices mean?
Die-cut 40th birthday invitations are the variety you find in the drug store; ours come in packs of eight and are much less expensive than "singles" purchased in multiples of eight.
Die-cut invitations must be filled out by hand — not a big chore for small parties, but a nuisance when a large guest list is involved.
Post card invitations are fill-ins as well, and are even even more affordable.
They also come in packs of eight and don't require envelopes since they're mailed as is, with the addition of an address and stamp.
Printable 40th birthday invitations are do-it-yourself templatized sheets of paper that you load into your desktop printer.
It's up to you to make sure everything fits and is aligned; each pack of printable invitations includes test sheets for your mistakes and envelopes for your finished product.
Custom 40th birthday invitations offer the best of both worlds — printable invitations and professionally printed.
With these you select a template, enter your message, set your font design, tweak the layout until the invitation's perfect, preview it all online, and then order the exact number you need, from 1-500.
Custom birthday invitations are printed on 102lb stock at a resolution you can't achieve with a desktop printer.
Cards are available in three different sizes of paper (you pick one); some are customizable to the point where you can even upload a photo of the 40th birthday "victim."
All custom invitations are shipped within five business days; envelopes are included free.
For follow up when the party's over, 40th birthday thank you notes let show your appreciation to guests, for gifts received or for taking the time to share in milestone event.
