Determine the size and style of invitation you prefer. You can choose to use the full 8 1/2-by-11-inch page, a half page or the full page folded in half to make a card. Making two invitations per page is more economical and environmentally friendly, particularly for larger parties.
Design your invitations, considering how much information you need to provide on the invitation, and whether you wish to include pictures or embellishments. Consider using a red and white checked paper that resembles a gingham picnic blanket, and pig-shaped rubber stamps or cutouts. Lay out the items on your card to see how they look before permanently placing them. This way, you can rearrange as necessary.
Determine the wording. You may choose simple phrases such as: 'You Are Invited to a Hog Roast' or 'Join Us For a Hog Roast.' You may also choose a more snappy phrase such as: 'Let's Pig Out!'
Use a ruler and pencil to lightly place a guideline on your invitation to indicate where your lettering and designs will go.
Apply your lettering using the guidelines you have drawn, and erase any visible pencil lines when you're finished.
Apply your pictures and other embellishments. If accessories are not pre-glued, use a gluestick or double-sided tape to apply.

Determine the size of the Web page being transmitted. As an example, take a website that consists of 5KB of text and two 20KB pictures. Together the page is 45KB of data.
Determine how many visitors have viewed the page (or are expected to view it). This is how many 'hits' the page receives. For the example page, it received 100 visitors in the past month.
Multiply the number of visitors by the size of the Web page to get the data transfer usage for that Web page. For the example, the data transfer usage for the month was 100 visitors x 45KB = 4,500KB.
Take the average size of all Web pages when calculating the data transfer usage for a large website. Multiply this by the number of visitors and then by the average number of pages viewed by each visitor. As an example, take a site that has five Web pages that are each 20KB, with 1,000 visitors and each visitor on average views three pages. Average Web page size is (20 + 20 + 20) / 3 = 20 KB. 20KB x 1,000 visitors x 3 pages viewed each = 60,000KB data transfer usage.
