Aside from the pumpkin spice lattes, the 31 Nights of Halloween movies on TV, and sweater weather creeping in, another fall favorite for my family, or me rather, is prepping for, creating, and ordering our holiday cards. It was one of the small and silly things I always had been looking forward to most once I was married. Well, 3+ years in, and we have used a few different resources. This year? Well, this year, we are super excited to be using Basic Invite for our personalized holiday cards.
Unlike the other platforms we have used in the past, Basic Invite has unlimited colors (almost!). Really! It’s one of the few sites that allows its users with 180+ color options with an instant online preview.
In addition to the plethora of color options and designs, Basic Invite also provides custom samples of the finalized card before placing an order.
Once you have crossed your T’s and dotted your I’s, your card is done. Almost. Basic Invite has more than 40 different envelope colors to choose from, ensuring a beautiful, seamless match to your card. The best part? Their envelopes are peel and seal so no more wet sponge hacks or paper cuts on your tongue!
For me, my least favorite part of sending out holiday cards is addressing each one. Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows you to share a link on your social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to request friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are then stored in your customer account and can be selected during the design process. What’s more? All of this plus printing at no additional cost.
For some festive fun additions, you can add foil to your cards in gold, silver, and rose gold in either flat or raised foil.
We are so excited to be working with Basic Invite this holiday season and can’t wait to debut our cards with you in a few weeks. Stay tuned for our reveal and in the meantime, get to shopping. Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off your order with coupon code: 15FF51. If you use Basic Invite, be sure to share your cards with us, too! We’d love to see what you create with your family.
