10 Ideas for Alumni Invitations


There can be a lot riding on an alumni postcard design. Having effective reunion invitations can make or break a milestone event.


Like in most design, to be effective you need to focus on a few core things: the audience you're trying to reach, the message you must give, and an action you'd like as a result.

We've collected a range of designs, from traditional to modern, to show how alumni groups have attacked this challenge.

Invites and Postcard Designs

OK, call me a sucker but show me a clean, bold, simple design and, voila, I'm in love.

Have a look at designer Michelle Bersani's work for Performance Harley-Davidson open house postcards.

It grabs your attention.  It's easy to understand.  It includes the look and feel of the classic Harley branding.

And in a world where you have less than ten seconds to make your point, it does that with time to spare.

Love it!
