Create a little love with Basic Invite Truly Custom™ stationary

9 Jul

This post is about our experience with Basic Invite custom stationary and how the samples we received for free brought a smile to our daughter’s face.

When I was growing up, it you wanted to reach out to someone you either had to pick up the house phone or sit down and write a letter.  Talking with someone was an “occasion” and you could spend days looking forward to a special letter.  Basic Invite has brought back that love of racing to the mailbox.

As my daughter has grown, constant contact has changed quite a bit.  As a baby, we’d simply pick her up and give her a hug.  Elementary school brought about a little post-it stuck in her lunchbox.  By the time we hit high school, cell phones were in full use and our paper notes gave way to quick texts. Now that she’s a young adult and often away from our home with work and school, I wanted to find a better way to impact her day and let her know that Mom and Dad are always thinking of her.

Basic Invite Truly Custom™ Invitations and stationary cards are exactly what this family needs. Not only do I get to go online and select one of their adorably cute cards but I get to add my own personal helicopter mom touch. All of their cards and invitations are fully customizable with your own photos, text, fonts, colored envelopes and almost unlimited color choices.  How fun!

I wanted to leave a little note on Beloved’s car while she was at work to let her know how proud I am that she’s working so hard and doing such a great job with this whole “adult” thing.  Sure I could have sent a text but eventually my love note would have been lost in the shuffle with everyone else’s.

I know that this card will surprise her and bring a little grin to her face when she finds it on her window.  I know that she’ll open it during her break and feel closer to her parents.  I know that the card will find a permanent home in her car (doesn’t everything-cups, wrappers, water bottles?) and keep sending her good vibes long after I remember sending it.

Parents, think of all the events you are going to need invitations, photo cards or announcements for this year.  And Basic Invite is one of the few websites that let you order a SAMPLE of your creation to make sure you’ve got it just right!

Wax a little nostalgic this year and bring back the days when a love note was truly handwritten and took extra thought.  Believe me, your kids will thank you.  (Okay, they’re kids so they probably won’t, but trust me, they’ll love the surprise).
