Keeping in Touch During the Quarantine

We are about two months in to our COVID-19 quarantine. Here in Illinois, the end is not in sight quite yet. I have organized every closet and almost every drawer at this point haha! I still have a few home improvement projects I’m working to complete, but overall, I am just loving this extra time I have to spend with my kids and husband. One of the most amazing blessings to come from the quarantine is the increased communication with my siblings and parents. My kids play online games with their cousins almost every day and we have had more video calls and sent more letters than ever before. Sending letters has been such a fun way to stay in touch with each other and share special events. Just because the world is paused, doesn’t mean we don’t want to know about these special milestones that are silently passing.

We celebrated one birthday so far during the quarantine but feel for all those who are missing wedding and graduation ceremonies this time of year. But you can still send out invitations, announcements and college graduation announcements to keep family connected to your special time. Basic Invite allows you almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card. There are over 180 colors to choose from, so the invite can be exactly how you want it.

You can also order a printed sample of your actual invitation before you place your final order. Then you can see the paper quality and how it will print, and make sure the card is perfect. And there’s an option that allows you to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request your friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in your account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.

This week my family has made the goal to send out thank you cards every day to someone we appreciate. Our list included grandmas and grandpas, health care workers, policemen, firemen, and grocery store employees. Right now there are so many essential workers who would love to receive some sort of gratitude for their service. Sending out a cute thank you card is a small but kind gesture.


Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
