I have always been the kind of person that held a keen interest in paper goods. I loved the art of penpals, snail mail, and receiving or creating invitations. I always attributed this to having an artistic nature and wanting to explore and express myself in different mediums. I am definitely one of those people who keeps cards, letters, etc as momentos.
Basic Invite is a great website for those who like to customize and dabble with design, in particular those who may not have graphic design experience or want to have a bit of control over how their paper goods look. They have a wide variety of selections ranging from stationary, invites, business cards, and stickers for any occasion! I love scrolling through their instagram feed to see how others have created really gorgeous designs for their own events & business.
What I appreciate is that you can create anything you want, don’t want to create an invitation? you can create stationary to write your own thoughts or practice calligraphy – if you want to feature your own photography on a card, that’s also possible too.
