Think of a “save the date” as a pre-invitation invitation. It’s a heads-up to all your prospective attendees that you’ll soon be celebrating a major event and want them there. Save the dates are popularly used for weddings — you can also use them for any big event you’re planning where you anticipate a large group of attendees.

How to make your own save-the-date flyer templates.

Once you have determined the details, you can start to think about how you would like your flyer to be laid out. Adobe Acrobat can help you create a customizable PDF template in no time. Whether it’s a scan, Word document, Excel sheet, or a form from another application, Acrobat can transform your content into a digital, fillable PDF.

  1. Open Acrobat and click on the Tools tab. Choose Prepare Form.
  2. Choose your file or scan a document. Acrobat will automatically analyze your document and add form fields.
  3. Add new form fields by going to the top toolbar and adjusting the layout using tools in the right pane.
  4. Save your fillable PDF.

Acrobat automatically recognizes static form fields and transforms them into fillable fields. Text fields can easily be moved around, headings can be added, and you can insert buttons. You can also add, delete, and drag and drop fields and enable e-signatures.

How to send digital save-the-date flyers.

In order to send save-the-date flyers, you will need the contact information of all who are attending your event. Be sure to message all attendees to ensure that their contact information is accurate and up to date. Where you send your save the date will depend on the formality of the event. Your save-the-date flyers should almost always be sent to attendees’ email addresses. However, for close friends, you may also want to share it over a text message.

Acrobat allows you to create and save fillable PDF forms, and you can also send them through the program. After saving your work, you can share your flyer with others by clicking Distribute to collect your responses automatically. Once the flyer is sent, you can view the status of the replies and send reminders to people who have not yet responded. From here, you can start to plan your event to accommodate the number of people who will be attending.
