Do it yourself parties and events ideas, by Clare

Phew!  I can finally relax, now the Christmas and New Year festivities are out of the way … Or so I thought, until I realised my friends and family now have umpteen birthdays to organise between now and the summer! Not to mention a wedding in April, and a Christening in June.

If your 2015 looks like it might be as hectic as mine, with one event or another, don’t panic. Avery has a whole hoard of products – perfect for any party! In fact, this weekend I was the dutiful bridesmaid taking some pressure off the bride-to-be, by creating some lovely invitations and matching cards with details of accommodation. Nearer the big day, we will also be creating place names, table numbers, menu cards, and an order of service – all using Avery Card products. This prospect could not be more simple using Avery’s Design & Print software – all we will need to do is apply the original design to the new template, and voila! We’re ready to print.

Of course, we at Avery do not just plan party events all day – there are also plenty of products fit for  meetings, conferences, and even that training course you’ve been so looking forward to running! Our name badges can be stuck straight onto your clothing – so you don’t need to faff around with a lanyard or awkward clip … and before your alarm bells start ringing, they are completely fine for fabric (we’ve tested!).   However we do like to cater for all, so we also provide inserts which fit any standard 60x90 holders, as well as our Fold & Clip name badges which come with clips and again require no holders. If you want to show off to your customers or course attendees, you can even send them an invite with their own name badge integrated onto the one sheet! We can provide efficiency – you just have to rely on your guest remembering to wear the name badge on the day!

Not only can we successfully attach a variety of naming solutions to you, we also offer 3 different sizes of tent cards for your desk, party or table plan. Hosting a dinner party? Avery Design and Print has elegant template designs for you, to make your place name stand out with sophistication. Got a kids party to organise? We’ve partnered up with twinkl, so we can also offer a gallery of child-friendly images to impress any 7 year old (even the ones who act like they’re going on 17!). Our Design and Print software is completely free and gives you the freedom to completely personalise all your designs and apply the same design to any Avery product! What more could you ask for when planning a party, event or wedding– Invites, RSVPs, Tent Cards, Thank You notes, labels for your favours, Menu cards for the table, and even certificate paper for the best behaved relative. Avery has got you covered.
