3D Star Wars birthday Invitations

If you want to get creative with your invitations, think about sending out a 3D object instead of a traditional printed invitation. This is a little trick that professional party planners use all the time to make their invitations stand out.

People love to receive unsual invitations. When something unexpected, like a 3D object, arrives in the mail it never fails to capture the imagination and get them excited about the party.

For more information and some photos of 3D invitations see Don't Just Think in 2D on the Party Invitation Ideas page.


Inflatable Lightsaber invitations

These inflatable lightsabers will make a great first impression if used as 3D Star Wars birthday invitations. They only cost a couple of dollars, so not much more than a printed invitation, but they're way more exciting. Plus you can ask the kid's to bring them to the party for lightsaber duals and Jedi training, so they'll double as a party game too.

Just hand-write all your party details onto a decorative shipping tags then tie the tag onto the lightsaber with ribbon. See an example of a 3D invitation with a tag here. Alternatively, if you want to embellish them further you can have the tags printed professionally (just $19.95 / £12 for 100 tags) where you can upload a photo to print on one side. The great thing about the printed tags is that you can upload a photo of your child dressed as their favorite Star Wars character. See the Costumes section for ideas.

You really need to mail these out already inflated, to get the maximum effect. You can buy these here in packs of 12 with free shipping. Alternatively, hand them out on the schooll run.

Personalized Invitations

Surprisingly, there are actually very few personalized Star Wars birthday invitations available. I think this is because the use of the brand name and any likeness to characters is tightly controlled under license by Lucas Film.

However, a few merchants have gotten around this with a bit of a creative approach and produced the invitations below.

These invitations use the Star Wars style font and the intro line 'In a galaxy far far away...." and can be personalized either with a photo (below right) or without (below left). See here for both of these.

Invitation Wording

If you're making your own home-made Star Wars birthday invitations, using tags or the 'fill-in' style ones, incorporate some familiar phrases from the movies.

Some examples are:

  • A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

  • There was a strong disturbance in the force...

  • The Jedi Council request that all young Padawans attend...

  • To celebrate Padawan (name), the chosen one's birthday

  • Use the force to reply (or for non-Jedis call....[insert telephone number])

  • Bring your lightsabers to complete your Jedi training (if you're sending out the inflatable or glow stick lightsabers).

  • And of course......May the force be with you






Mailing Tubes (for inflatable lightsabers)

Send your lightsaber invitations to guests in mailing tubes such as these.

uk flag940 x 76mm Tubes (Pack of 20)

Free Delivery!




Size Information: Inflatable Lightsaber from USA is approx 20" long. I would guess that a 4" diameter tube should be more than sufficient to accommodate the width of the lightsaber when inflated.

The UK Lightsaber is 74cm long so the best size tube is 940 x 76mm. (You loose approx 10mm off the length at each end due to the depth of the caps, so a 760mm tube only has an internal length of 740mm).
