May is the Month of Our Mother, but for Catholics it is usually something more: a time for First Holy Communion, Confirmation, and graduations. My Facebook Memories remind me that last year around this time we celebrated one nephew’s First Holy Communion, another’s Baptism, and my daughter’s Confirmation and 8th grade graduation!
Well, things are a little different this year, aren’t they? When I watch my parish’s Sunday Mass via Facebook Live, the Prayers of the Faithful prompt me to pray for those who would have celebrated their First Holy Communions or Confirmations on spring Sundays, but who are now having to wait as patiently as possible for the grace of those Sacraments, as we all wait and long for our return to Mass and the Eucharist.
But we WILL celebrate again! And part of our holy anticipation lies in planning for these blessed events. Basic Invite is here to help with
baptism announcements, First Holy Communion invitations, and more, and they want me to tell you why you should choose their products to make those occasions special when they arrive.
[Disclaimer: I was compensated for providing you with my honest opinion of Basic Invite.]
I’ll be honest: after just a few minutes of looking over Basic Invite’s website, I started wishing I needed a baptism announcement or a First Holy Communion invitation. The tools they provide make it look not just easy to design your announcements and invitations, but even fun!
The first exciting thing, and what really sets Basic Invite apart from the competition, is access to unlimited color combinations. There are over 180 colors available, and you can change the color of every element on every card. This is coupled with instant online previewing so you can get your design exactly right.
But online viewing doesn’t really compare with seeing the real thing, does it? Basic Invite allows customers to order a printed sample of their baptism announcement or First Holy Communion invitation. That way you can see and feel the quality of the paper, and know in advance how it will print before placing a final order.
To customize your design even further, you can choose from over 40 different envelope colors! And for those who don’t enjoy licking envelopes, all Basic Invite’s envelopes are peel and seal so you can get them ready for mailing quickly and easily.
And about that mailing: Basic Invite also provides a free address collection service. Here’s how it works: share a link with your guests via social media or email, collect their addresses, and Basic Invite will print your envelopes free of charge!
Of course you want to know prices, which start at .75 per card and increase depending on factors like shape and the addition of photos. The cost of each upgrade is clearly marked as you go through the process of designing your card. And everything is 15% off until the end of the month!
