Register a business name for your invitation company

Figure out a smart business name for your company. Begin by making a list of the characteristics you want your clients to see in your company like quality service, high work ethic, timely submissions of work, and best value for money. Think of the personality you want your business to have. Do you want to project a serious, straight forward approach? Do you want it to have a feminine touch? Do you want to project a happy aura? This will all depend on you. Once you have gathered your thoughts, determine a name for your company based on what you have written. Check the web if this chosen name is already in use. If its not, then reserve it by registering for it immediately. Then apply for a trademark.

Get a invitation business permit

Evaluate your knowledge regarding business permits, licenses and other documents that concert registration. Are you fully aware of the processes? If you are unsure, it is best to seek the help of a business lawyer. Leverage your weakness and let the experience of others work for you and not against you. It might cost more but at least you are sure to be on the right track.

Design a logo for your invitation company

Next, design a logo that will be easy for your clients to associate your company with. Get recognized with the invitational work you have done. Develop a logo design that is easy to recall and quick to spot. Then make sure you stamp this logo on every piece of work your company does.

Find an accessible store location

Then survey locations that you can open up your business in. Find a location that is accessible to both your clients as well as your potential walk-in clients. Don’t choose a location that’s remote. Instead find a location that is very visible to people who pass by.

Create a portfolio of your work and sample invitations

Develop a collection of your invitational work. Categorize it and organize it according to subject and theme. You can service weddings, birthdays, corporate events, social events and other events. Have several samples to hand out your clients so they can recognize the quality of your work quickly. However make sure there are no typos.

Continue to use your creative juices.

Experiment with several mediums for your invitations. Get out of the conventional box and use your imagination. You can use recycled materials, cards with different shapes, cds, and anything your hands can work on. Preserve the artistic touch you have in such creative projects. Experiment with other creative invitational mediums as well as the invitation content itself. If you have budget problem and can't afford to buy your own printers then use some of the inexpensive professional online printers to print your invitations and ship in unbranded packages.
