Announcingit Reveals Five Mistakes to Avoid With Holiday Invitations

FOOTHILL RANCH, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2010) - December 1 and the start of the holiday season may seem a long time off, but holiday party hosts are running out of time -- fast. Announcingit.com, a leading online provider of creative invitations for all of life's special occasions, has released a list of the top five mistakes to avoid with holiday invitations.

1. Ordering Invitations Too Late

December calendars fill up at warp speed and to get guests to attend a holiday party, it's necessary to send out holiday or Christmas invitations at least 4-6 weeks before the party date. So for a party the first week of December, invitations need to be mailed by the first of November at the latest.

2. Not Ordering Enough Invitations

Avoid costly and time-consuming reorders and order at least ten extra invitations the first time around.

3. Mistakes in Wording

Proof read, proof read, proof read. Be sure to check holiday invitations for spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes as well as information that might have been inadvertently omitted.

4. Important Guests will be Out of Town

Decide on a guest list, check the calendar and set a date and time that is convenient for all guests and/or co-workers. Planning the office Christmas party only to find the boss will be in Tahiti would be a disaster. Make sure all important guests have the party date open before committing to a date on the holiday invitations.

5. Inadequate Postage

Don't assume all invitations take standard postage. Is the invitation square? Is it oversized? Overweight? All of these concerns could mean an invitation will require extra postage, but how much? Assemble one complete invitation and take it to the post office to have it weighed and the size measured before buying or affixing postage stamps. Also, make sure to have a return address on all envelopes so if there is a problem, they can be returned to the sender.
