An Introduction to Basic Invite (#stationery #snailmail)

writing cards by hand

Thanks to Basic Invite for sponsoring this post.

As a Millennial and mom of four, I appreciate the convenience of text messaging, emails, and other forms of electronic communication as much as the next person.

Even so, I also enjoy the daily walk to the mailbox and am delighted by long-form letters and unexpected greeting cards.

My three older daughters (ages 10, 8, and 5) have discovered the magic of the postal system too. We have a "stationery drawer" and they love selecting stationery and stickers to send to their penpals in New Mexico, New Jersey, and lots of cities in between.

When Basic Invite contacted me about a potential collaboration, I responded enthusiastically and immediately began browsing their lovely collection. Fancy fonts, elegant papers, vibrant envelopes (40+ colors!), and countless customization possibilities!

Based in Utah, Basic Invite started in 2006...and their paper goods are anything but basic.

Some of my favorite items? I'm glad you asked!

I like the gold foil on this modern chalkboard baby shower invitation. It would be ideal for a laid-back couples shower or BBQ (my favorite kind).

Did you send out birth announcements? This adorable one makes me wish that we did! I mean - look at that little striped bedtime hat.

With my baby boy's first birthday coming up at the end of the summer, I also snuck a peek at the the 1st birthday invitations (which made me think that I definitely need to plan a 1st birthday photo shoot!).
