Since my kids were babies, I have always love using a custom card for birth announcements, baby showers, birthday parties, thank you cards, Christmas cards… you get the idea. Since I am all about using photography, I love the idea that sending custom cards offers an opportunity to send friends and family a picture.
Reasons to Choose Basic Invite for your next event
**This post was sponsored by Basic Invite, but all of the opinions expressed are my own**
I have tried all kinds of services for ordering cards, but most recently I was blown away by Basic Invite. These cards are perfect to use with or without pictures.
At first glance, I thought, “This is awesome! There are so many different things you can do on this site!” Then I started ordering, and I was in love.
1. You can change almost anything in a card to fit your theme or colors, and it’s crazy easy!
It gives you almost as much freedom as if you designed the whole card yourself from scratch without the actual hassle of having to design it! I changed color hair, and skin color on these invitations- how stinking cool is that??!!
2. Almost Unlimited Colors
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.
3. Custom Samples
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows 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. And they come FAST! I ordered a bunch of samples so that I could check out all of the colors and paper, and I they got to me in just a couple of days (and I didn’t even pay for express shipping, so that’s pretty incredible!)
4. Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes
Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. <–Hello, awesomeness!
5. Address Capturing Service
Basic Invite offers 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. I’m pretty sure they’ve thought of just about everything they could to make my life easier.. it’s like they’re in my head.
Foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
7. So many paper possibilities
I ordered several different types of paper when I ordered my samples because I really wanted to experience the difference in person. I absolutely love that you can get thicker cardstock, or glossier paper, or matte, or even pearl.
You guys- the possibilities, and times you can use Basic Invite are endless, and there are so many different times you can use custom cards birthday invitations, graduation commencement invitations, thanks you cards for graduation gifts, wedding invitations, thank you cards for wedding gifts, baby shower invitations, generic thank you cards, note cards, the list really does go on, and on. Their wedding cards are incredible!! I wish this would’ve been an option for me when I was getting married. The graduation announcements… so many cool things you could do with them, and customize school colors and everything. Super neat stuff here!!
