All In The Details: Custom Cards from Basic Invite
Every year I think that this is going to be the year. This will be the year that I get organized and send out holiday cards. I really love the flurry of holiday cards that make their way into our mailbox throughout December and January each year. It’s such a wonderful way to see what our friends and family, near and far, have been up to over the past year. Our fireplace mantle gets covered in cards and our fridge overflows with warm greetings. It’s really a big part of making the holiday season feel festive. When the summer comes to a close and the fall starts to set in, I think about getting my little family together for a photo session and ordering some lovely holiday cards to mail out to our friends and family. It usually starts with me trying to figure out where we should order from. After a week or so of researching, I can’t decide on the right place, life gets busy with school and Thanksgiving, and the next thing you know that first holiday card of the season arrives in the mail and I still haven’t even ordered my own! Next year, I say. Next year. Not anymore! Now I know exactly where I’ll be ordering my holiday cards from, and this year I’m going to make it happen! Where will I be ordering my holiday cards from? Basic Invite! If you haven’t checked them out yet, you really should!
When I checked out Basic Invite, I just knew it would be the perfect place to order holiday cards this season. First, they have so many amazing design options. There’s something for every taste! The best part of their designs is that they have almost unlimited colours! Unlike a lot of other stationery lines, you can actually change the colours on almost all the elements of each design. With Basic Invite, you can be sure every detail will be exactly as you want it with over 160 different colours to choose from. You’re not stuck with having to choose between the design you like and the colour scheme you want with Basic Invite. You can have it all with the click of a mouse! Not sure about the colours you’ve chosen? Basic Invite has an instant online preview feature, so you can see exactly how those new colour choices look on the finished design before you place your order.
One of the most challenging things about ordering any stationery online is knowing what it will actually look and feel like before you submit your order for 20, 60, or 200 cards! Whether it’s holiday cards, birth announcements, or even wedding invitations, the last thing you want is to receive your entire order only to discover that the quality you thought you were expecting isn’t at all what you received. With Basic Invite, you can rest assured that you’re getting exactly what you expect with their custom samples. Basic Invite has the option to have a custom printed sample mailed out to you so you can see exactly what the end result will look like. I like a thick matte paper for my cards and invitations, so getting the chance to actually feel one of my holiday cards before I place my full order is awesome!
Once you’ve gone to all the effort of choosing the right design, customizing the colours of all the details, and checking out your custom printed sample card, it’s time to choose an envelope! After putting in all that time, wouldn’t it be great if you could get an envelope to match the colour theme you’ve chosen? Basic Invite let’s you do just that. They’ve got envelope colour options to match perfectly with any colour scheme you’ve chosen! They go way beyond white, beige, or brown envelopes at Basic Invite. You can choose from 40, that’s right FOURTY different envelope colours. From pumpkin to cranberry, lilac to peacock, there’s an envelope colour to match your vision!
Of course Basic Invite doesn’t just do holiday cards! One of my favourite things to mail out (and receive in the mail) are birth announcements. We sent out custom birth announcements after both The Heir and Petit Prince were born. It’s such a nice way to celebrate baby’s arrival with everyone, especially those that live too far away to be able to pop in to meet that baby in person! I’ve hosted a few baby showers for friends, and I always go to the effort to do printed baby shower invitations. I love choosing a theme for a baby shower and feel like the invitation is key in setting up that theme for the shower guests! Whether you’re planning a gender reveal baby shower, a co-ed babies & burgers BBQ shower, or a traditional ladies only shower, Basic Invite has the perfect design template!
