If you are a graphic artist, regardless of the amount of experience you have obtained over the years, there will always be preferences that may include the type of file format that you want to work with or even the tool that you want to use for editing. Some may be more knowledgeable in the use of vectors and some may also be more comfortable with PSD, and some graphic artists may even prefer to use Adobe’s well-known Photoshop while others may go with an alternative such as CorelDRAW or even GIMP.
The primary reason why preference matters is because it gives the designers enough freedom to choose the type of file format as well as the editing software, and the more they can get creative if they are comfortable with what they are working with. As mentioned earlier, there are graphic artists that are more into vector files while there are also those that prefer the simpler PSD files. If you are more into the latter file format, then today is definitely your day since we have an entire collection of PSD invitation designs below just for you, go ahead and see them yourself.

For this design, it focuses on the typography, which provides the details as to the who, when, and where regarding the wedding.
