How to Create WhatsApp Invitation Cards

Another thing you can do on WhatsApp or any other messaging app is to send invitations to people. No, you don't have to send a boring text message. You can send personalized digital invitation cards. Electronic invitation cards are cost effective and save a lot of time.

But how do you create a digital card and send it? Don't worry. In this article, we'll walk you through a few ways to create digital maps. After creating some, you can share them on WhatsApp.

Use WhatsApp status

You cannot create native invitation cards on WhatsApp. But, if you're creative, you can use WhatsApp's status feature to create beautiful invitations.

To do this, open the status screen of WhatsApp and use the provided tools such as text, doodle, sticker, etc. to create an invitation card. Without uploading it as a status, take a screenshot, crop it and send it to others.


If the native options are not for you, let's look at other ways.

Use invitation card maker apps

Gone are the days when the telephone was only meant to call people. Now you can now do everything on your phone. Whether it's creating a Word document, editing images or painting a photo.

Our phones also allow us to create invitation cards. Both iOS and Android app stores have a huge collection of invitation card maker apps. All you have to do is enter the text as per the occasion. Then change the theme and edit other elements. These apps will generate an invitation image. Once you have the invite, use WhatsApp to share it with others.

The card making app that I like is the Canva app. It is available on Android and iOS both. It also has a web version.

The Canva app provides an easy to use interface and lots of design templates. The app offers templates for occasions such as birthday, wedding, save the date, etc. She is also known for creating social media graphics.

Create a video on PC

If you are familiar with PC video editing software, you can use your creativity to create a video invitation card. Once the video is created, send it to your phone. Then share it on WhatsApp as a video.

Tip: Sharing the video as normal video will cause quality loss. We suggest you share it as a document

Create video on phone

If you don't have a PC handy or aren't familiar with video creation software, you can also create one on your phone.

You can make a video from an image slideshow or your physical card. In the first case, you must have at hand good images relevant to the occasion. In the latter, you must take the photos of the card.

Once you have the photos, use the video editing apps on your phone to create a slideshow either way. You can add text, stickers, and change music, among other things. If you have an Android phone, try apps like Quik, VideoShow, and Viva Video.

Send a PDF

South Asian wedding cards usually have at least two pages. Although you can just take photos of the wedding card and send it on WhatsApp, viewing a PDF file gives a more realistic feel.

To create a PDF from images, download an image to PDF converter to your device and select the photos. Be sure to rearrange the images according to the pages. On my Android phone, I like to use DLM Infosoft's Image to PDF converter.

Create a map from the web application

The last, but certainly not the least, way to create an invitation is to use a web application. One website that caught my attention is Youvivid.net. It lets you create sophisticated invitations for every occasion.

All you have to do is select a theme and fill in the event details. Interestingly, it creates a multi-page invitation where you get things like a map, gallery, reminder, etc.

Now that you know how to create digital invitation cards, you can share them on WhatsApp or any other messaging app. If you need to send such invitations to several people at the same time, you can use WhatsApp's mailing list feature.

It differs from WhatsApp groups in many ways. One of the main differences is that, unlike groups, users do not know about other recipients. Thus, each recipient will receive the card separately. Now that your invitation is ready, you can relax and focus on other things.
