In today’s age of instant access, it is so easy to lose the personal connection with friends and family. One way to stay connected is through traditional greeting cards. I found myself falling into the funk of using digital cards rather than traditional greeting cards. Although certainly convenient, digital cards lack emotions and they do not generate the same emotional connection with the recipients. 

Tradition, Tradition!

When a traditional card is received in the mail, hidden among the bills and junk mail, it is always a pleasant surprise that brings a smile to my face. I don’t want my son to miss out on this wonderful tradition. Therefore it is important to continue to the tradition of sending  tangible cards in the mail, particularly for significant events and milestones, that give the personal connection to our friends and family. 

Create A Reflection Of You 

To make the most of this tradition, it is so important to make to personalize a unique card that is a reflection of you and the message you want to convey. These cards become a keepsake memorializing important milestones. They can later be turned into a shadow box, preserved, framed, or even added to a scrap book. 

Being a parent offers plenty of opportunities to send personalized greeting cards and invitations. From the baby shower to the first birthday, here are some of our tips when sending out a customized card. 

Baby Shower 

A baby shower is the time to celebrate a new life with friends and family. And although your newest family member won’t be able to remember it, he or she may love to look at all the pictures and hear the stories and details of this special day. The baby shower invitation is the first glimpse of the shower, so you want to create baby shower invitations with a memorable theme and custom options. 

Basic Invite offers plenty of options for themes, including giraffes, tutus, llamas, book baby shower invitations, and many more! Unlike any other company, Basic Invite also has nearly unlimited color options and allows you to  change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options. So from the baby shower card and beyond, any card you design with Basic Invite will be exactly as you wish, down to the smallest detail. 

If you are hesitant about selecting baby shower invitations online, don’t be. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that sends you a printed custom sample of your actual card. That way you can be 100% confident that your invitation is actually as you want it.

First Birthday 

There is one thing every parent knows, they grow up too soon. So whether you choose a small intimate affair with a smash cake or throw a big bash, memorialize it with a first birthday card. Your little one (and you of course) will loving looking back to see memories of this very special day. Make this invitation extra memorable and unique by including a picture of your one year old on the card itself, instantly creating a keepsake that will be treasured for years to come. Basic Invite offers many design variations for including a picture, see all options here. 


Bat Mitzvah 

The next big birthday milestone will be here before you know it. In our house growing up, our family friends turned our invitations into keepsake boxes and presented it as our Bat Mitzvah gifts. We still treasure these preserved invitations today. As your not so little child takes his or her place in the Jewish community, it is important to memorialize this event with a unique card that reflects your child’s personality. Whether you opt for a modern design, include a picture, or create a totally unique one of a kind design, Basic Invite offers many designs that your family will love. See them here.
