How do I create a PDF invitation template my customer can edit the text only themselves?

I am trying to figure out how I create a downloadable PDF template of a wedding invitation design that my customers can edit themselves.
They will be approx 2 fonts used on each template and the customer will need to be able to edit all text themselves. e.g. change their names, wedding date, location etc. etc.

Basically I want to be able to sell an editable downloadable template. So I will need to lock the artwork and “open” the text so they can edit the text only.

If you think of something like this image. That has artwork that I want to be uneditable and then has text that I want the customer to be able to edit and print out themselves at home etc.

Answer

You can’t do it.

To edit a PDF successfully without the source file, you need the fonts and artwork, and some program beyond Reader. Reader may allow you to make some minor tweaks, but for the “fill in the blank” template you’re envisioning, you need something more powerful.

Also, if you have a program which can edit a PDF (like Illustrator), it can edit the artwork too.

There may be a way to create an online form which then fills in the blanks and produces a final image which can be downloaded, but that’s an entire application itself.
