This is Why Printed Memories Are The Best
This is a sponsored collaboration with Basic Invite. All opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the sponsors that allow me to create new and special content like this for Live Colorful.
When our little Jax was born, we found an overwhelming love and happiness that was hard to describe. We tried our best to plan ahead as much as possible and do all the things that, as new parents, we were to supposed to do. We packed a hospital bag, we decorated Jaxon’s nursery and we even hired a photographer to capture our baby’s first day of life. But not surprisingly, we also forgot to do many things. One of those things was to send our baby’s birth announcement to friends and family.
Months later, a friend of us sent us her little girl’s birth announcement. It felt so personal, sweet and special. I remember looking at her printed memory with melancholy and thinking of the first time we saw our baby boy’s adorable face.
I wish we could go back to be able to share that moment with the people we love. That’s why I always encourage new moms to look for a birth announcement design they love in advance and be able to have them ready after the baby is born.
I was so happy to be invited to collaborate with Basic Invite and share with you not only their creative birth announcement designs, but also their custom baby shower and cheap first birthday invitations.
I ordered a sample to be able to check out quality and colors and honestly I really love everything about it. The quality of the paper (I ordered Signature Matte) is great, and the colors were just as I imagined. I picked “THE ARROW STATS BOY BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENTS” design and I was able to personalize the picture, font, information and even the colors I wanted.
One of the things I appreciated the most about their service, was receiving an email for one of their designers to ask me about my product and my experience with their shipping and site, and to offer me help and advice if I needed to make any changes with my order.
In terms of design, 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. Basic Invite also offers over 40 different colors of envelopes! To make your invitations and announcements stand out even before they are opened.
Their birthday invitations got me excited about Jaxon’s birthday too, since it is getting closer and closer. I’m trying to get inspiration from their selection. Maybe space? I don’t know, there are so many cute designs to pick from.
