Some folks collect baseball cards, others collect rocks or stamps. In our family we collect sweet precious, wonderful babies. As our children have grown up, we not only have our own tiny people, but our children are having babies as well (yes, we are “breeders,” to God’s glory, hallelujah!).
Lots of babies mean lots of baby showers, and then loads of thank you notes…which also means loads of planning and work.
I am always on the lookout for things that streamline my life and make each event more of a joy than a chore, especially since every minute is more precious than a room full of gold. This is why I was so excited to discover the products over at Basic Invite.
What a cute nautical theme on this from their boy shower invitations collection.
Besides being adorable, Basic Invite also has an addressing service! If there is anything I know, it’s that pregnant moms (and grandmas) are not only pressed for time and energy, but brain power (call it “pregnancy fuzz”). Having someone else address the envelopes is a real saver!
Oh, and then there are the “thank-you’s.” You always feel so overwhelmed by the kindness of others that you want to make sure you show your gratitude in a special way. Snagging a package of cheap cards at the dollar store just does not seem like enough. And then there is the guilt because you haven’t found time to gather all those addresses, written them on the envelopes, and actually remembered to send them out (did you know a woman’s brain actually physically shrinks during pregnancy?).
Basic Invite has theme-coordinated baby shower thank you cards. What a perfect way to express your gratitude, personalized, with the addresses already done-up so all you have to do is write your sentiment on the inside and send them off!
What sets Basic Invite apart from other sources? Here are some reasons why they are superior:
Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company.
Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order.
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to your envelopes so that you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so they can be quickly and securely closed.
Free Address Collection Service – Use their free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing.
With ten grandchildren so far, and at least one, “in the works,” I am definitely keeping Basic Invite in the back of my mind for future blessed events.
While we’re talking baby showers, are there any tips you could share to make things special, yet streamlined?
