It’s my Dad’s birthday next week and I needed to find a card; he’s been really poorly and I wanted to find something a little more personal. And funny, of course.
These days greetings cards are often overlooked – electronic mail and social media has taken over and good old-fashioned paper cards are what seems to be a dying tradition.
Invites are the same – does anything send paper invites anymore? Even at weddings now you can RSVP by email or online, it takes away the fun and tradition of sending and receiving pretty stationery.
The high street still has dedicated shops for all sorts of stationery – for as little as 50p you can buy a card. Job done.
But what if you want something a little more personal? I checked out a few online retailed and came across Basic Invite, a US-based invites and stationery who design(and allow you to custom-design) your own things.
You can basically create anything – the only limit is your imagination.
Sending crucial invites for an important event like your wedding or senior announcement cards? You can order a printed sample to make sure your idea prints perfectly prior to committing to a large order.
I’ve never seen a website with such a huge option for colours – you can choose from over 180 colours and alter every element – you can even choose the envelope colour.
Big party coming up? I love the foil cards that come in gold, silver and rose gold; perfect for milestone birthday parties or custom graduation party invitations.
And it’s not all about the big events – with the end of the academic year looming there are events like prom to consider; what about sending thank you card graduation?
Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
