It is Almost Time to say Goodbye and Thank You

*Collaborative Post

It is coming up to that time of year where a big change is on the horizon. As I have mentioned before, Jake is about to leave pre-school and will be starting school in September, although I haven’t quite got my head around it all just yet. There is so much new to think about, settling in sessions to attend and parents evenings to get all the relevant information but before all of that, I need to think about how I say thank you to the amazing staff at his pre-school as he ‘graduates’ from there. As Jake is my first child, this is all new to me and I want to get it right and I want to give them something special. I expect they get inundated with wine and chocolates at the end of term but I would like to mark the end of this stage with something memorable and a stunning thank you card at graduation.

How adorable would it be to add a photo of Jake on his first day and then one near to his leaving day? They have helped him to grow and learn and become the lovely little lad he is today. He has loved his time at pre-school and I want to show this to the fantastic ladies who work there. I would love to be able to present them with a personalised keepsake from Jake, maybe a mug each or a mousemat of the whole year group? Perhaps afternoon tea to treat them all after working so hard with the little tots for 2 years? They definitely deserve it!

I know it may sound silly as it was only pre-school but I feel as though it is an event which needs to be marked. Our children grow up so quickly and marking these types of occasions helps everyone (mostly me) to remember it all.


If you are in a similar situation to me, you can get all your thank you cards over at Basic Invite. From invitations to thank you cards, graduation cards and college announcements, they have it all and with plenty of customisable options:

Almost Unlimited Colours –  They allow customers almost unlimited colour options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the colour of each element on the card to over 180 different colour options. You can make sure the card is exactly how you want it, even down to the smallest detail.


Custom Samples – They allow customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order. So, if you want sample graduation party invites why not give this service a go?

Address Capturing Service – They offer 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 which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.
