Happy Friday! I’m bringing in a post from Sierra. She’s with Basic Invite and she was amazing to work with! Thank you, Sierra.
I graduated from university recently, and while I’m grateful I got my degree, college was a very difficult experience for me.
In the middle of my college career, I had to go see a psychologist for anxiety disorder and depression.
Dealing with anxiety and depression at the same time was hard, but I learned a lot about myself from this experience.
One thing that really helped me deal with my feelings was making things. Every so often I would paint or do origami and it really helped relieve my stress and fear.
As graduation loomed closer, I knew I wanted to send out graduation announcements to my friends and family.
By this time I had my mental health problems better under control, although I usually still felt uneasy and prone to sadness more often than normal.
I was also really worried about finding a job after graduation, where I would live, and everything else that comes with leaving school and becoming an adult.
Despite my worries, I decided to knuckle down and find some cute graduation invitations to send to my loved ones.
I googled “graduation invitations” and stumbled upon Basic Invite.
I really liked their designs.
I went with their vibrant anemone graduation invitation, shown below since I love flowers.
Although I must say, all their floral graduation invitations are pretty awesome.
Their graduation brunch invitations are cute too.
What I really liked about Basic Invite was that I was able to edit the font and colors for the card.
I changed the background of the vibrant anemone invite to a lighter shade of blue I liked better, although I kept the font the same.
Designing the invitations was really therapeutic for me, like origami or painting. It kept me from feeling stressed.
I was knocking something important off of my to-do list.
I told my friends about Basic Invite and how I got to design my invites, and a couple of them tried it out too.
They also have colored envelopes, so I chose an envelope that matched the background of my invite.
I ordered a sample from their site to make sure I liked how everything turned out, and it was perfect.
I placed an order for all the invitations I wanted the same day.
Designing my graduation invite with Basic Invite was one of the best choices I made at the end of my college career.
It was super fun and relaxing, and I got to show off my work to all of my friends!
If you need graduation invitations, I hope you’ll give Basic Invite a shot. I hope you love their products as much as I do.
