We have a senior in high school. I haven’t quite come to terms with this, despite the fact that he’s been a senior since September. However, 18 years ago, I celebrated my first Mother’s Day with a newborn; today I celebrate it with my oldest celebrating his 18th birthday.
Thanks to Basic Invite for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
So You Need to Buy Graduation Announcements
I have no idea where the time has gone. What I do know is that I haven’t ordered grad announcements yet, and the days are counting down.
In my head, I would have designed some fancy-schmancy custom announcements myself (and likely tied in his baby announcement theme just to embarrass him, though I maybe should save that for college). In reality, I have zero extra time.
Fortunately, I’ve been introduced to Basic Invite, and they have all of my graduation announcements and (socially distanced) graduation party invite needs covered. As a designer, I’m really impressed with the selection and selection of templates available.
Almost Unlimited Colors and Instant Online Previews for Your Graduation Announcements
One of the things that I get most frustrated with when I’m using online stationery services is the lack of customization available. I don’t mind templates, but I like to be able to really customize them and that is a limitation on so many sites.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options and gives you instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card. They have over 180 colors to choose from, so the invite or announcement you customize is sure to be exactly how you want it.
Looking for college graduation announcements template? They have those, as well as templates for high school. They have so many options I can’t even begin to tell you how many there are on the site. There are also themes, so it's not just the announcement or invitation, but you can order a set of graduation announcements, invites, and thank you cards.
Custom Samples Make a World of Difference
Not many places let you order just one printed sample of your actual finished invitation or announcement before you place your final order of 50 or 5,000. That’s so scary to me and one of my pet peeves about ordering anything online. I need a proof!
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample (proof) of their actual invitation before they place their final order. This way, you can see the paper quality and how it will print, and make sure the card design is perfect in every way.
A Rainbow of Envelope Colors to Choose From for Your Graduation Announcements
Basic Invite has over 40 different envelope colors to choose from. It’s a full rainbow of options and then some, but with so many options, you can truly customize your creation. And a HUGE bonus is that all of the envelopes are peel and seal–you can close them quickly and securely with zero nasty lickings.
Use the Address Capturing Service for Your Graduation Announcements
If you hate hand-writing addresses as I do, you’re in luck. Not only is the address printing done at no additional cost, but it’s easy! Basic Invite’s address capturing service offers customers a link to share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process.
Get Extra Fancy with Foil on Your Graduation Announcements
If you have your heart set on very fancy, regal, elegant cards with foil, Basic Invite does that, too. Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

Now that I’ve shared with you why we love Basic Invite, I need to go finish ordering my son’s graduation announcements before graduation is actually here, or I’ll never hear the end of it from my mother (who’s already asked me twice what my plans for his graduation party are).
