There is one thing, one tiny yet significant thing, that is synonymous with Birthdays, Weddings, Christmas or just any celebration. Take a guess?
No, not the gifts, outfits or any of that bling that comes with the celebration. I am talking about the very basic dilemma and stress people go through during any celebrations, the cards. Yes, the physical cards that people send out to friends and family, specially the Holiday Cards during Christmas. I don’t necessarily follow the tradition of sending out Christmas Cards of my own, but I have heard of long and taxing activity people really go through to get the most perfect cards every season.
For me it’s most definitely one of the delightful times of every holiday season, looking forward to the cards from my friends. Now, would it make you just a tad bit joyful if I told you, you have a way to get through this phase without a shred of stress?! I don’t like making promises that I cannot keep up with, so read along and discover for yourself 🙂
I have recently been introduced to an amazing depth of exquisite choices on these cards, the Basic Invite. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that gives you 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. To top that, it also lets you the ability to order a printed sample of your actual invitation/card so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order.
When I first got the samples to try them, I had zero clue on how they would turn out in person; much less, falling in love with them. As you see in pictures, I got samples in every kind, clear business cards[oh, and how long I have waited to actually have a card of my own in this kind], velvety Thank You card, a flat foil matte effect card, a magnet that you can get on any card really and a shimmery holiday card.
Let the website not overwhelm you with amount of choices you see online. Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. You can practically choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. Best of all being, all of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.
I cannot possibly talk about Basic Invite and not talk about their Thank You cards. I was specifically intrigued by how luxurious they come out after printing on even the most basic paper and choices. What you see below are some of their best Thank You cards that I loved and pinned for my next event. Be it your next biggest event or just a family gathering or the Holiday season, if you are in the business for some elegant choices of cards, you should definitely go check them out.
One of coolest and most useful features is that it offers an address capturing service that allows you to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request you friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in your account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. How cool is that?!
If and when you make Basic Invite part of your event, do share your experience and your favorite card type with me. Oh and also, right now they are offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51 so use that wisely 🙂 If you are still with me so far, Thank You for giving this a read. See you soon on the next adventure.
