When October hits I like to start my holiday planning, so it takes less stress off me for when the holiday season really kicks into gear. I will share a little secret on how I create the most stunning invites and holiday cards for my family and friends!
Basic Invite is my go-to for getting ahead of invitations and holiday cards for the holiday season. Don’t let their name fool you, they are nothing close basic! Whether you are having your family over for a Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas dinner you might want to send out holiday invite to the party. They are my go-to place for creating an invitation that fits my exact needs all the way down to the littlest details. Basic Invite offers over 180 different color option, and they really are set apart from other online stationery companies, because they create such quality invitations, holiday cards, stationery, and more.
You get to choose different styles of paper, card shape, and more. When I have a theme for my holiday parties I want my invites to reflect that. So if I have a burgundy and gold colors, I am going to search out a card to fit that exact look. It is something I like to do, to make the party feel like it flows consistently. You can customize everything with Basic Invite, nothing is off limits. Want to change colors, wording, or shape of the card, feel free. They set no boundaries, and that is why I love them.
Also, you need to check out their wide selection of holiday cards. I think adding a family photo is a great touch to a holiday card. It lets your family and friends get to see you, and it adds a personal touch. I love seeing the kids grow bigger each holiday season, and I know our loved ones enjoy it too! Plus, it is always fun dressing up to match and heading out to a pumpkin patch, or playing in the snow while we snap some pictures.
A Few Reasons I Choose to Shop Basic Invite
Custom Samples| Basic Invite allows you to order printed samples of the invitations you create to see what they look like in real life. This is a wonderful way to see first hand if you have any tweaks you want to be made before you place your final order. They are one of the few websites that offer this. This is especially great for big events like weddings or birth announcements. Those are special moments that you want to be perfect, and with Basic Invite they allow you to do that. Check out the samples I ordered the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas season:
Free Address Collection Service| To be honest, I always lose my list of addresses after a year and have to ask again. Basic Invite has a free address collection service. Share a link, they will collect addresses when it is filled out by your friends and family, and get free envelopes printed. It is a wonderful service and can save you a lot of time. I used this for my kids Christmas party invitations for kids in their co-op group. I wasn’t sure what everyone’s address would be so sent it out to the parents. It worked wonderfully.
Envelope Options| You can choose from over 40 different colors of envelopes that can be used for your invitations and cards. This really helps it stand out and gives your invite some personality! The envelopes are peel and seal, which saves you from having to lick every envelope, which is a huge winner in my book. our invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.
