Anybody who knows me in real life knows I love sending out holiday cards. I don’t pick up your run of the mill cards either. I love a card with a unique flare for my family. I also send cards that encompass pictures of my family. When you live hours and hours away from your family, this is the way to connect with them. Plus, I love seeing how all my friends’ and family’s children have grown from year to year. Some years it is pretty shocking!
As laid back as I am, I do like my holiday cards to not look like everybody else’s. That is why when I checked out Basic Invite I was pretty excited. They make it easy to have a one of a kind card that will impress all of your family. First, they have 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. I think this is amazing especially if you have a theme or if you are ordering wedding invitations and have specific colors you must have. (Yes, they do wedding invitations too!) Their custom samples option is to die for. I have ordered cards before (from other companies) and hated them once I got them. Sometimes, what you see on your computer screen is NOT what you get. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allow you to order a printed sample of your actual invitation. (Again, this is amazing if you have wedding invitations or even birth announcements!) Who else hates boring white envelopes? Okay, but your hands down. You can choose from over 40 different envelope colors so that they can make your cards, announcements, and invitations stand out even before it is opened. Best of all, all of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without licking a single one. Seriously, it is like they read my mind. One of my pet peeves is licking envelopes, so I love, love, love this!
When you are working on your holiday cards, you can even print off your own free gift tags! How cool is that?
To be honest, I’m a little partial to these ugly sweater gift tags. Don’t be surprised if you get them on your present this year!
Basic Invite has a card for almost every major life moment – weddings, holiday, births, graduations, etc. They allow you to make your invitation your own, so it is remembered by everyone who sees it. When searching for your holiday cards this holiday season, Basic Invite is a must stop to get exactly what you want to shine.
