Eye-catching 80s Party Invitations

Totally 80s Party Invitations x 8



Picture the scene. You've spent a lot of time and money on making your 80s party/event the best in town, but then you send out a bland, poorly designed invite to your guests. Worse still, you forget to send out any invitations at all!

You'd be amazed at the number of poor quality invites I've received over the years. From the off, they give a very bad impression of your party, and if you can't be bothered to send out a decent invite, then chances are that your guests just won't bother turning up.

In this post, I'm going to show you where to find eye-catching invites that your with really grab everyone's attention, ensuring that people will want to go to your party.

Quite possibly, the best online range of invites in a digital format can be found at Etsy, and they deliver worldwide - just change your currency at the bottom of their website. Most of these can be downloaded digitally. You can then print as many as you need using your own printer.

Above are just four examples of the hundreds of designs available. Whatever 80s style you're looking for, you're likely to find it at Etsy.

If you prefer a more traditional, ready-printed set of invites then try Amazon. However, the range of designs is very limited compared to Etsy. Firstly, here are the designs I discovered at Amazon.com (US). Some different designs are available at the UK site.

I particularly like the "Let's Party" invites which certainly grab your attention! For quirkiness, the pink zebra stripes are a winner.

The biggest range of printed 80s invitations can be found at Zazzle. They are priced individually and have just about every design you can think of. Although more expensive than buying a multi-pack from Amazon, you receive a more unique design that you can really impress your guests with.

Below are just a few of my favourite designs available at zazzle.co.uk. However, you can order from across the globe by changing your currency on the site.

Well, I hope I have helped you find some decent sources for 80s party invites. May I wish you every success with your party.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Create an 80s or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we

Kia-Ora 80s TV Advert - I'll be your dog!

Anyone who watched British TV during the 1980s (or went to the cinema) will remember the Kia-Ora crows advert featuring the slogan "I'll be your dog".  You may well remember the Kia-Ora drinks in plastic cartons which the usherette used to sell in the cinema. They also sold them in our local youth club, although sometimes it was Tip Top orange, which kind of tasted like the carton.  The advert itself was pretty bizarre but also a lot of fun. It featured a child wearing a straw sunhat and carrying his belongings over his shoulder, while walking in the hot sun carrying an empty glass. Suddenly, a dog appears from nowhere and tips Kia-Ora orange into his glass. The sun wrings itself out into the glass to top it up.  A crow is following the child and shouts "Kia-Ora!". The child replies "It's too orangey for crows, It's just for me and my dog." The crow replies "I'll be your dog!", and then starts barking. As they continue to walk, an
