It’s almost Christmas! And you know what that means, holiday traditions, trimming the tree and of course, christmas cards with Basic Invite!
My family and I are so excited because well, there’s a TON that happens in December for us. It’s my son’s birthday, then Christmas, then my birthday, plus holiday parties, decorating and more – so there is A LOT going on every December for my family. This is where the custom holiday cards with Basic Invite comes in!
I love sending out yearly holiday cards. What I don’t like it how much time it takes to pick out the perfect card only to realize its not in the color palette that I want. Well, Basic Invite has got you covered there. They have an *almost* unlimited color option and that’s why I love them and why I ordered a few samples in the color palette of my choosing. Anytime I see customization options, I jump on it!
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. With over 180 colors to choose from, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it. This is what sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company.
Have you ever received a full order and it wasn’t actually what you wanted? One of the things I love about the ordering process is that you can order a sample. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. They can see the paper quality and how it will print in real life and make sure the card is perfect. Plus you get to see how your custom colors turned out! I love this!
Basic Invite has over 40 different envelope colors to choose from. With so many options, customers can make their envelope match the invitation. All of Basic Invite’s envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be closed quickly and securely! For my envelopes this year, I chose a classic white so I can have the option of decorating them if I wanted to!
Another benefit of Basic Invite is that they offer an address capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders. This is another great idea that this company has come up with so you don’t have to worry about mailing your happy holidays card to an old address!
Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. This option adds a beautiful luxurious feel to holiday cards!
Here are a few samples of our holiday cards for this year that we ordered from Basic Invite. I chose the Garland Frame holiday cards just like in the image above. Instead of the raised foil on the word Joy, I selected the color Pecan. For the text I also switched to the color Pecan. I love how the card is double sided and matches the same elements on the garland frame on the front. I think they turned out beautiful.
