This school year has been unlike any other. Whether education was provided virtually, hybrid, or in-person with restrictions, kids of all ages have had to overcome unprecedented obstacles while adapting to an entirely new way of learning. That is why it is more important than ever to celebrate all of the success our children have achieved. We have no idea what graduation will look like this spring but one thing is for sure, it should be celebrated! Whether it’s kindergarten, high school, college, or law school, our children’s accomplishments should be honored. That’s why I am so excited to partner with Basic Invite to share with you unique ways to boast about your child’s accomplishments.
For those that don’t know, Basic Invite is a Utah based company that started in 2006. Their goal is to offer limitless options so customers can create truly unique cards that reflect who they are. Basic Invite offers cards, invitations and announcements for every life event. From weddings to baby showers to holiday cards, they have it all. In this post, however, I want to highlight their amazing graduation announcement and party invitation options!
If you are planning a party and need special graduation invitations or are just looking for an announcement to send out to friends and family, Basic Invite has you covered. They have so many graduation party invitation templates to choose from but don’t worry about getting overwhelmed. You can filter out preferences to narrow down some of the choices. Since Basic Invite has over 180 colors to choose from, you can customize your announcement or invitation to match your graduate’s style. It can be their favorite color, high school colors, or even the colors of their new college. They also offer foil cards in gold, silver, and rose gold for customers who want to add a little more shimmer and shine to their invitations. The unique style doesn’t stop at the card either. You can also choose from over 40 different envelope colors. The possibilities are endless!
Not only does the Basic Invite website have what feels like endless choices, it is so easy to use too! While designing, you will be shown an instant preview of your card. You can then change or adjust the photos to your liking. You can also change the colors, fonts, and wording. Once you are in love with your design, order a sample! That’s right, Basic Invite also offers custom samples that can be printed and sent to your house for an even better view of your card. You can see and feel the announcement/invite before ordering them to send out to friends and family. If you are a perfectionist like me, then you will love this feature!
In addition to all the fun colors and textures, Basic Invite has a plethora of styles to choose from. It is important to make graduation special and unique this year, and you should have an invitation or announcement to match. Here are some of my favorite ideas:
Have a college grad? Basic Invite offers degree specific grad party invites and announcements. What a wonderful way to celebrate your child’s accomplishments. I would have loved a psychology themed invitation when I graduated college! Other options include nursing, pharmacy, animal science, law, culinary arts, music, and more. They even have military themed invitations and announcements.
Then and Now
I absolutely LOVE this concept! This announcement allows you to show friends and family where your child has been compared to where they are now. You can add an adorable (and embarrassing) preschool picture along with a current senior portrait. Then you can include some likes and goals from then and now. What I love about this option is that it is something parents can create with their child making it a nice bonding experience.
While some families throw graduation parties, others honor their graduate by having a going away party which is often called a Trunk Party. This is such a fun idea, and Basic Invite has some great designs to help celebrate your child going off to college.
Don’t Forget to Say Thank You
I am so excited that Basic Invite offers matching Thank You cards. Now your grad can thank their guests in style.
Once you are done designing your card, Basic Invite offers one more service that you will LOVE. You can have your addresses printed on the envelope for FREE! Plus, with their address capturing service, you can share a link to social media requesting the addresses of friends and family. Basic Invite then stores the addresses in your account. How cool is that? You will never again have to ask your friends and family members for their addresses!
Whether it’s rustic, vintage, collage or monogram, there are designs for every personality and style. Which one will you choose? Use the code 15FF51, and get 15% your order!
