I am happy to report that this small digital content creation venture, my nights and weekends side-venture and creative passion–Styledespresso–has been gaining momentum with new and exciting projects! With every blog and instagram post, Styledespresso is growing and evolving. I love how it is my creative outlet, which allows me to create, write, share my thoughts and inspiration, and how all this has started opening doors to fun brand content partnerships. This is definitely not an overnight success story, I would say more of a gradual evolution but, I am confident in my business decision to focus on a steady, long-term strategy to learn the ins and outs of blogging, digital content creation, and establishing the right kind of brand partnerships that represent what Styledespresso is all about: a unique personal style, lifestyle and travel blog focused on sharing my unique experiences and opinions on all things fashion and wanderlust.Similar to finding the right collaborations, finding the right kind of business cards, that perfectly represents one’s vision, can be a slow and often times tough expedition and this was something I had been considering for some time. I was so excited when Basic Invite reached out to me about their custom business cards and to collaborate on content showcasing their creative business tool and service.Once started, within the hour, I had created two designs which I could easily edit, preview, save and order all from my Basicinvite.com profile. Basic Invite offers over 180 color options to fully customize your cards and you can select the best card design from their amazing template selection, including their new and oh so unique! clear plastic business cards. Once you select your design from the template page, you can apply your color selection, edit text, select foil type, paper type and quantity, instant preview your edits (so cool!) and build/save/order your creation, all within your Basic Invite profile (so efficient!)For my blog, I decided to go with the Basic Invite Truly Custom(TM) Sample of the Portrait Photographer Business Cards to best represent and showcase the creative vibe for Styledespresso. The end-result of my custom business cards samples, which I am sharing below, really bring my vision to life for Styledespresso as a creative digital content partner and a personal digital journal sharing my unique experiences with my readers. The quality of the Luxe Velvet paper and the color expressed on the sample cards I received exceeded my expectations of the Basic Invite online custom business card creator. So easy, efficient and most importantly fun to use, Basic Invite’s website extended a creative business tool for Styledespresso. Right now, Basic Invite is offering 15% off everything with coupon code: 15FF51 so, what are you waiting for! Go check out Basicinvite.com to create your own custom business card. While there, get a head start on the holiday season and take a look at their 2018 holiday cards photo templates, to create your own and have ready to share with friends and family, come December!Tip: You can always order a Truly Custom(TM) Sample of your custom creations so you can feel confident in your card and invitation designs. (As a side note, I am currently working on designing a few options for my son’s first birthday and our first family holiday card all saved to my profile so I can view and update before I place my custom samples. Love it!)On that seasonal note, I took a peek at the Basic Invite holiday cards photo options and, along with their amazing array of modern color selection, they have some beautiful foil options available in perfect holiday tones of gold, silver, and rose gold plus, over 40 different colors of envelopes to perfectly match or mix! with your holiday card design.
Currently in my Basic Invite profile project queue: For my holiday card this year, I am probably going to go with a modern twist of turquoise and silver or gold foil details framing our first family holiday picture…stay tuned!
(PS: To make everything as efficient and organized as possible, Basic Invite has an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses, all stored within your profile to easily access, once you are ready to order. Plus, recipient address printing is offered at no additional cost on all holiday card orders! So good!)
Most modern and unique holiday card award, here I come!
