Staying Connected The Old-Fashioned Way With Basic Invite

This past month I’ve been thinking a lot about how we connect with one another. In a time when we are unable to physically spend time with friends and family, finding ways to maintain our relationships in other ways is so important. Like most of you, I’ve been utilizing technology to stay in touch, but I’ve also found myself taking a more old-school approach with personalized cards and stationery, and Basic Invite has become my new obsession for creating custom cards to send to loved ones.

Some of the cards I designed using templates from Basic Invite.
No matter what the occasion, Basic Invite has hundreds of templates for you to use as a starting off point. From birthday invitations to shower invitations to thank you notes, you can create almost anything on the site.

With my birthday coming up, I decided to create a cute birthday brunch invitation (this was designed pre-quarantine, of course) as well as some thank you notes to send to friends and family. Growing up, handwritten thank you notes were always expected after birthdays and holidays, and I’m a firm believer that they are extra special to receive.

Exploring the Basic Invite website
My favorite part about using Basic Invite was how customizable all their templates are. Almost every part of the card can be transformed to your liking, from fonts and colors to the actual text.

For my birthday thank you cards, I was actually a big fan of the original color scheme, so I kept it pretty close to the default colors, but I did customize the notes with my name for a personal feel. And of course, I played around with some different combinations just for fun (there are over 180 colors to choose from, so the possibilities are endless!):
The original color combination in the middle, plus some other options I played around with. Can you tell I like a pink and green scheme?
Once you have finalized your card design, you can even customize your envelope color from over 40 options. P.S. the envelopes are all “peel and seal” if you are concerned about minimizing germ spread!

For any design, you can request a printed sample to be sent to you before placing the final order so you can assure the color, paper, and all other details are exactly to your liking. This comes in handy for anyone worried about getting their invitations or stationery just right!

My customized creation!
Whether you’re planning an event for the future or just want a way to send a note of gratitude to someone in your community, I encourage you to explore Basic Invite and try out one of their designs! And my little treat to you: right now you can receive 15% off your order with code 15FF51. Enjoy!
