Once you have children, you suddenly have a ton of little milestones and events ahead of you. Some of these are celebrated on a smaller scale. First tooth, first word, first steps and more all warrant a baby book entry and a Facebook post (I love seeing the memories of these come up in my feed!), but other milestones call for a more formal announcement or a party. Baby showers, birth announcements and 1st birthdays, maybe a christening. And it doesn’t stop there, that’s just the first year!

If you had or helped plan a wedding, you’ve likely got some experience under your belt in dealing with invitations and the inevitable RSVPs and thank you cards. Picking out just the right theme or script, going through colour options, picking the right printer for the job and then rounding up all the addresses. Now add in a baby, subtract time and multiply the odds of forgetting to drop them at the printer. No thanks! Basic Invite is here to take care of all of the dirty work for you so you can spend more time relaxing and less time stressing.

With Basic Invite, the possibilities are endless. Their selection of designs is massive,  and every single element on your choice of invite can be individually customized with over 180 colour options to get exactly what you’re looking for. And maybe a few perfect choices you hadn’t thought of! Even their envelopes come in more than 40 different colours so you can be sure your invite will stand out in the mailbox and match that much thought out party design you’ve planned tirelessly.

Of course with all of the different themes, colours, fonts and other options available, Basic Invite knows choosing can be difficult and possibly overwhelming. This is why they offer custom samples; compare your selections, see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality and colour vibrancy before placing your final order. They truly want to make sure you love your final product!

But my favourite feature is their address collection service! No more phone calls, emails and messages to friends and family asking for their address and then printing out your own label or *shudder* writing them out by hand. Just share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing! Sure you might have to send a couple reminders, but this service saves loads of time and stress. And once you become a parent, time is something we become a little short on. Especially in that first year where there seem to be more celebrations than most.

When I think back to special family events we’ve celebrated and how much easier the invite process would have been, admittedly… I’m already planning our next birthday. Grandparents near and far, family members and friends cherish photo memories and as a sentimental family, having a precious keepsake for our family members and ourselves to cherish after the event is a much-loved addition to the whole process.

Basic Invite has everything you need to make baby shower invitations special, whether it’s a boy, a girl, twins or a surprise, with a dizzying array of themes and characters to choose from. Need help? They have online customer service chat to guide to through to your perfect finished product.

They also have an incredibly large selection of inexpensive birth announcements where you’re sure to find the perfect way to announce your new bundle(s) to the world. Christenings? Absolutely! 1st birthday invites? Of course! 

They also have grad, bar/bat mitzvah,  weddings, showers, milestone parties, all the necessary RSVP and thank you cards, heck they even do business cards! If there is an occasion for it, Basic Invite has all of us covered for all our invitation and announcement needs. Making party and event planning just a bit less stressful for everyone. 

From their unmatched selection of themes, fonts and colours to their Love It Guarantee and Custom Samples, Basic Invites is clearly anything but!
