I was recently contacted and sponsored by the amazing company Basic Invite to let you know all about their adorable products just in time for the holidays! Please note that all the thoughts and opinions in this post are my own and I would never promote something that I didn’t love.
With over 500 Christmas and Holiday card designs available from Basic Invite – choosing your favorite design will be the only difficult thing about ordering your cards this season.
After just having our family photos done, I was eager to hop onto Basic Invite and try out their process. I quickly realized why with so many online card companies out there you would choose Basic Invite.
CUSTOM Samples – And when I say custom, I mean CUSTOM. Basic Invite is one of the few online card companies that allows you to order a completely customized sample of your holiday card before you commit to the entire order. For only a few dollars you can upload your own photos, customize all of your text, font colors even paper finish to show you exactly how your order will look.
This is a screenshot of us customizing one of the samples. Basic Invite provides a sample color palette that compliments their design, but you can easily change font sizes, font styles, and font colors to change the look.
You can even click to drag the text boxes around a little and alignment guides pop up to help you make sure everything is lined up just the way you’d like it.
You also have the option to add foil details to your designs. If you’re looking for a more formal invitation or card, you can incorporate flat or raised foil in silver, gold or rose gold. Fancy eh?
Practically Unlimited Color Combinations – Basic Invite offers the ability to have endless color combinations without making it too overwhelming for the customer. All of their designs start with a suggested combination of colors. At the same time, they allow you to tweak even the smallest of details. For example, this design we were working with below allows you to change the colors of the stars to coordinate with your family’s outfits …. mind blown 🙂
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Add another pop of color to your holiday cards with over 40 different colors of envelopes to choose from. It’s amazing how the smallest of details like a coordinating envelope in a fun color will dress up your holiday cards and give it a more finished look. And the best part …. ALL of their envelopes are peel and seal. Game changer 🙂
Address Capturing Service – This feature will save you so much time!! You can easily share a link on social media to request the addresses of your family and friends. Basic Invite then stores this information in your customer account. During the design process, you simply choose which of your saved contacts you would like to include. Basic Invite will print all of your recipient’s addresses at NO EXTRA COST on all Christmas card orders.
Amazing Customer Service – Ya’ll the customer service department at Basic Invite was spot on amazing. You can tell a lot about a company when you interact with their customer service department. I used the online customer service chat feature to get a few questions answered during my design process. If you have a question about your order, the representatives available will help you through the process and make ordering your holiday cards online a complete breeze.
