I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ~Maya Angelou~
In today’s world of Social Media, the personal touch has been lost. We have email, Snapchat, Facebook, and private messages through nearly every app, so keeping up is easy (or complex).
Once upon a time we used to receive handwritten letters on pretty paper. Now, we sit in front of a computer reading email. Photographs are viewed on Facebook, and Instagram, instead of being mailed with letters from loved ones.
In this digital age — companies like Basic Invite — have surfaced, allowing the personal touch to be affordable, and at your fingertips. Christmas is right around the corner, so I figured this was a great time to talk about sending out beautiful, personalized Christmas Cards. It’s one of the few times during the year that we get a personal touch from friends and family. I love getting Christmas Cards!
There are over 180 different color options. And each color option on the card can be changed. Previews are instant. Envelopes are available in 40 different colors. Yes, I said, 40! Want a Sample? They can do that too!
In order to get these many options in the past, you’d have had to hire me, or a graphic designer to completely customize your cards. If your head isn’t currently spinning with ideas about how to personalize your Holiday, keep reading. It will be!
Basic Invite also offers some of the cutest printables I’ve ever seen. There are recipe cards, baked good gift tags, as well as gift tags for nearly every occasion. Your entire holiday could be shopped from one stop. Personalizing gifts is one of my favorite thing to do. And when you’re done receiving the gifts, make sure to purchase some Thank You Cards as well. Handwritten notes mean so much, and that portion of life is being lost. I mean, they’ve quit teaching cursive to kids in school for crying out loud. That kind of makes me sad!
The holidays are closer than we think, so I’m hoping that this will get you in the mood to make your holidays even more personal.
