The Best Part of Graduating is Shouting it to the World

This is a sponsored post brought to you by Basic Invite.  All opinions are 100 percent my own.

It’s that time of year once more when so many graduates are finally able to see their dreams come to fruition after years of sacrifice, determination and simply busting some serious booty to finally hear pomp and circumstance playing at their graduation.

The day I could finally call myself a college graduate was one of the most rewarding milestones in my life. Between working three jobs at any given time, taking six years, two schools and being one of the first in my family to do so, is something I am still proud of to this day. Needless to say, I was ready to celebrate, flip that tassel and scream from the rooftops to let everyone know I had finally made this dream a reality.

In lieu of rooftop shouting, I took the equally as satisfying route of preparing graduation announcements to spread the good news to everyone that had been by my side throughout the journey, as well as friends and family to join me in my celebration.

Being completely honest, the most common way I keep in contact with the people in my life is through email or social media, as much as I love sending and receiving physical letters, I’m ashamed to say I lack addresses for a majority of my friends and family.

So I found it very exciting that Basic Invite offers an address capturing device that allows you to simply share a custom link on any of your social media accounts to request your friends and family’s addresses, which will be stored to select during the design process. I love the idea of working smarter instead of harder to reach the people where you interact with them the most, especially since all you have to do is send a single post and the work is done. I did that this morning and only got a “heart” from my mom.

Also, if you’re like me, you know it’s all in the details and will be just as excited that Basic Invite has 180 different color options to apply to your card to perfectly match every detail of your well-deserved celebration, on top of over 40 different colors of envelopes.

I simply love receiving a physical piece of mail that doesn’t tell me I owe money. I’ve already seen some pretty impressive graduation announcements that truly jump out making the best kind of statement in my mailbox, including Rebel Red envelopes, stunning invitations and thank you cards adorned with metallic foil, eye-catching colors and remarkable images. What an amazing way to spread the news that my email inbox just can’t compete with!

Basic Invite wants to help you to share the good news and say thank you by offering 15% off with the coupon code 15FF51. Be sure you don’t forget thank you cards for everyone who stood by your side and celebrated with you! It means more to them than you may know.

Congratulations to all the new graduates as you head off to your next adventure or head out into the workforce, you deserve to celebrate your inspiring achievements! Be sure to take the time to enjoy and make the most of this moment before you’re out there tackling your next big accomplishment.

I’d love to hear about your alma mater or where you plan to attend in the future in the comments below.
