When Basic Invite reached out to collaborate on a post I was thrilled because I knew that a lot of us could use their services for an upcoming celebration. Basic Invite specializes in creating the perfect custom card for every noteworthy event in your life. They offer a wide variety of designs for wedding showers, baby showers, and birthday parties to name a few. Since graduation season is upon us I thought I would share some of my favorite modern graduation announcements available at Basic Invite. Don’t be discouraged if you’re looking for something different than the ones I picked. They have over 300 designs available for graduation alone!

I have to say my absolute favorite graduation invitations are the ones that have a “then” and “now” photo. Give me all the old photos with big grins and bow ties. The announcement pictured below also includes facts about the student’s school involvement and career aspirations including what they wanted to be when they were little.

Confession time: When I was in elementary school my career goal was a cross between Britney Spears and Baby Spice.

What sets Basic Invite apart from the crowd is that you can make every card as unique as the person you are celebrating. Each element on the card can be customized to over 180 different colors. Even Basic Invite’s peel and seal envelopes come in over 40 different colors. If you want to get really fancy then you’ll be pleased to know many of their designs offer foiling in gold, silver, or rose gold. All those features are phenomenal but let me tell you the best thing about designing a card with Basic Invite. They will send you a sample of what you card will look like BEFORE you order a full set. That way you still have time to make changes before you’re stuck with cards you can’t return. *Praise Hands Emoji*

Pro-tip: While you’re ordering cards for graduation, make sure you order thank you cards for graduation money. The world could always use more expressions of gratitude.

They are currently offering 15% off your order with code 15FF51 so check out their website and let me know how your cards turn out! I’d love to see photos of your invites and announcements on the You, Me, and Tennessee Facebook page. Let me know in the comments section what events you’ll be celebrating (or what you wanted to be when you were 5). That sounds very entertaining, indeed.

Thank you to Basic Invite for sponsoring today’s post.

Until next time,
