Stationery that Makes a Strong First Impression

Stationery that Makes a Strong First Impression

Coming up I always had birthday (and graduation) parties given by my mom. I remember when she would get the “fill in the blank” party invitations to give family and friends. I would be excited to pass them out to my friends I was inviting to my birthday party from school. To request the attendance of family, my mom would mail their invitations to them. I always loved that my invitations went with my party theme. Even then I knew stationery (like invitations) were meant to set a precedence for the kind of party I was having. It was a great way for guests to feel valued when they received an invitation request of attendance. These are perfect reasons why we need stationery that make a strong first impression. It’s personable and impacts how your guests will respond to your event invite. Like whether or not it’s worth attending. 

Now days there are additional ways to send out invites. They are being sent via online invitations like evite, via text and requests can be made for your attendance to an event via Facebook event invite. To tell you the truth, I’m not a huge fan of Facebook event invites and can say that although it appears to be convenient, it’s one of my least favorite ways to receive an invite. One big reason for that is, it doesn’t seem as personable or, that much time was put in to making your guests feel welcomed. We can agree to disagree if this is the way you like to send invites. One of the ways I’ll send an invite is via text with a personalized flier attached which depends on the occasion. It’s usually when it will be a small gathering or if it was planned last minute.

I definitely haven’t given up on real life invitations and they will forever be a preference of mine. All first impressions matter, even the ones that don’t seem like they do. And the way you invite your guests is the first impression you give about your party and etiquette. Just something to think about for your next celebratory event. With that said, let me introduce you to the online stationery company to help you make your strong first impression, Basic Invite

Genius can write on the back of old envelopes but mere talent requires the finest stationery available.

I’m so glad I have Basic Invite to help me whenever I’m in need of beautiful and custom style invitations. I love that I can make the card exactly how I want it down to the smallest detail which to me sets them apart from so many other online stationery companies. They are one of the few websites with almost unlimited color options and instant previews on their website. And I love having colorful choices. All you have to do is select the design and change the color of the fonts on the card (with a choice of over 180 color options). Are you excited about creating your personable invites yet? 

Foil Cards

Foil cards are available too – in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. Perfect for your wedding and/or graduation invitations (can’t forget the thank you cards too). Can you visualize how gorgeous that would look? It’s pretty fun creating invitations that suit your style and theme. If it doesn’t appease my style, then I don’t want it. I love any company that establishes its mission on catering to the needs of many customers. 

For a little birthday fun with the girls (see the fun here), I ordered a sample of my birthday invitations to see just how well they will print and the quality. And I didn’t just stop there. After discovering that they had clear business cards I was all over it and could not resist ordering a sample of my own. Before placing the final orders, I loved that I could order samples free of charge. Once I received the samples, ordering the finals was a no-brainer. I’ve already received a lot of compliments on my invitations and business cards.

With over 40 different colors of envelopes, your invitation can stand out even more. Needless to say, I was really excited about choosing the envelope I wanted to match one of the font colors on my bday invitation. And if you’re anything like me, you love effortless stationery, so you’ll love the peel and seal on the envelopes too. 

Another helpful feature Basic Invite offers is an address capturing service that allows their customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. It’s then stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders too. No more inconvenient address gathering from guests.
