When we needed Harry Potter invitations for a Harry Potter birthday party, it was a no-brainer that I’d just make them myself. Not only would I be able to customize them however I wanted but I’d also save a few dollars, which I could then put towards Harry Potter gifts instead.
Harry Potter Invitations
To make my Harry Potter invitation template, I needed the right font. I found this free one at Dafont.com. You can download this for free if you plan to use Picmonkey to add text to your birthday invitation template (more on this below). I use PicMonkey to create many of my invitations. It’s one of my favorite editing programs and they make it easy to customize pretty much anything.
I’ve made several versions of these Harry Potter birthday invitations. The first is the simplest. You just print the invitations and fill in the party information by hand with a black Sharpie or other permanent marker. Just use this template if you want to fill it out by hand.
You can also edit this on PicMonkey with the JPG version.
If you want to fill out your invitations online, then print them out, you can do that too! Just add the party information using your new Harry Potter font (or any other font you like). I used this Harry P font from Dafont. Here’s an example…
PicMonkey makes it really easy to customize these invites. If you’ve never used it before, this easy tutorial gives you step by step instructions. Just warning you now, after you customize these Harry Potter invitations, you’ll never want regular store bought invitations again. I’ve included the jpg version, which you’ll need for PicMonkey as well as a pdf version.
I recently decided to create another set of printable invitations. Because I get bored so easily and need new stuff, you have more Harry Potter invitations to choose from.
The thing that’s different about these is that you can print them in two sized. I’ve got the standard 5×7 that you can use with the invitation kit or you can print two side by side on 8.5×11 cardstock and just cut them apart.
Just choose which version you’d like to use…
If you’d like to customize them in PicMonkey, this post has a tutorial on how to do so.
Harry Potter Envelopes
I don’t usually make matching envelopes but after I saw the perfect owl image on Etsy, I went ahead and made envelopes too.
To print the envelopes, choose the C7 as your paper size if it’s an option. My printer doesn’t have that option so I had to use C6 instead. It was slightly off center but still looked okay. Then I put the envelopes in the regular paper tray, since they were just a smidge too big for the photo tray. The landscape or portrait setting will depend on the direction that you place the envelopes in the tray.
You may want to try printing a test envelope first, to be sure you’ve got the settings just how you want them. That way you can make adjustments if needed.
All that’s left is to add names to the envelopes and you’re good to go.
