We love a long goodbye. We also love streamlined party planning, customizable invitation templates, and RSVP tracking—which is why we offer all that and more when you send your farewell party invitation through Paperless Post. We’re here to make the process as simple as possible so you can focus on your friend before they jet off to start their new chapter.
It wouldn’t be a farewell party invitation without some designs decked out in passports, tickets, luggage, and all the accouterments of journeys well-made. If you’re sending off a new grad, a college farewell party invitation is the way to start—we’ll leave the inscription and essays to you, though. Or, put the honoree center stage with a farewell photo invitation. Use a snapshot as the background or as an accent.
You can easily re-word any of the designs in our collections, opening up more options for design possibilities. Retirement party, housewarming, and graduation party invitations can easily be edited to reflect a farewell sentiment befitting a goodbye soiree. On the off-chance you don’t find a flawless farewell invitation candidate, reach out to our Personal Design Services team, who can help you whip one up exactly how you want it.
In some ways, the goodbyes never end, even when you enter the working world. We have plenty of ideas for farewell work parties or virtual farewell ideas for remote teams. Even better, we can help you with finding the right words for your office farewell party invitation.
For a formal farewell party with all the bells and whistles, send out invitations around four weeks in advance—six weeks if guests are traveling to attend. For a more casual get-together in the office boardroom, three weeks is more appropriate—especially for a going away party that’s taking place during work hours.
Put together your guest list from the contacts in your personal or work email accounts—or from past events you’ve held via Paperless Post. Send your farewell party invitations via text, email, or shareable link. Once they’re sent, tracking RSVPs is easy—see who’s opened their invitation, who’s responded, and who needs a gentle reminder via our guest messaging tool.
Yes! Once you’ve found the design you like, you can use our online design tool to craft the perfect farewell party invitation message and customize font and text color. Pick out a coordinating envelope, liner, stamp, and backdrop for an extra-special personal touch on the invitation.
After the party’s over, post photos on your event page’s Comment Wall for all of the guests to see. Follow up a year later with a fond thinking of you card—or a just because greeting card—because farewells are often just the start of a new beginning.
