I was recently contacted by a company called Basic Invite, inquiring as to whether I would be interested in doing a collaboration. This is a sponsored post. Though Basic Invite provided the images and gave tips on what to include in this post, all opinions are my own.
I have always loved stationary. Being a writer I love paper, journals, pens, pencils and anything else to do with writing. I enjoy picking out cards for people when they have a birthday. I also used to buy various whimsical stationary to send letters to friends and family when I was away at college. Unfortunately, like many people I have bought into the quick pace of our chaotic lifestyles and resort to text messages, Facebook birthday greetings and emails to convey thoughts and express sentiments. However, there are still occasions where an email just won’t due. Weddings, funerals and at this time of year graduations all require a more thoughtful approach than a text or a Facebook invite.
When I began looking over what Basic Invite offers, I was impressed by their selection. For this post, I want to focus on graduation invites, since that season is upon us. Graduations from high school, and college are fast approaching, with a few having already taken place. Basic Invite has plenty of options to choose from, such as, graduation photo party invites, customized graduation invites, or you can create graduation invitations online.
Here are a few samples of the types of graduation invites you can get.
What makes Basic Invite stand out from other stationary retailers? Here are a few specifics.
