I am excited to share about a new company I came across called Basic Invite. As a photographer, I’m always looking for great card companies from which to order our family’s Christmas cards and party invites. Every fall I start looking for beautiful card designs to feature our family’s photos to send during the holidays. I not only want great design from our cards, but I also want the colors to mesh with the colors in our family portraits. It’s usually a frustrating experience because I typically find either great design or coordinating colors. That’s what I love about Basic Invite, I can customize the colors to any design!

If you are like me and order a lot of cards, you may also want to check out Basic Invite for Christmas cards, wedding invitations, 1st birthday invites for your child or 70th birthday invitations for your parents.

My Top 5 Features for recommending Basic Invite

1. 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. With over 180 colors to choose from, the invite is sure to be exactly how you want it. This is what sets Basic Invite apart from almost any other online stationery company.

2. Custom Samples

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you to order a printed sample of your actual invitation before you place your final order. You can see and touch the paper quality, see how it will print, and make sure the card is perfect!

3. Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes

Basic Invite has over 40 different envelope colors to choose from. With so many options, you can make your envelope match the invitation. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so they can be closed quickly and securely (without leaving a horrible aftertaste!)

4. Address Capturing Service

Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows you to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request your friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in your account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.

5. Foil

I love the look of foil on cards! Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. You can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
