Custom stationary is something that I have always been in love with. I don’t know if this comes from my love of proper social etiquette or an obsession with pretty paper products, but I just love stationary. I believe in sending handwritten thank you notes. I sent out printed birth announcements when each of my littles was born and I send out holiday cards to friends and family every year.
One online stationary company that I keep going back to is Basic Invite. I love that they have over 180 colours to choose from (more than any other online stationary company) with instant previews online. You can change the colors of any element of their design, making them highly customizable. I’m not someone that wants a cookie cutter set of happy holidays cards and Basic Invite gives me the flexibility that I need. Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
I know it sounds crazy that I’m blogging about photo Christmas cards 2021 in July but it’s honestly never too early to start thinking about these things. By the time we roll around to back-to-school, Thanksgiving and then Halloween, it’s almost too late to start thinking about this!
Thinking of adding something extra in the envelope with your holiday cards? Why not paper new year party invitations! Now that we’re all free to have get-togethers again, why not opt for something classic like a paper party invitation to a glam NYE party?!
5 More Reasons to Love Basic Invite
I’m a big fan of Basic Invite and I wanted to list a few of the reasons that I love shopping for stationary on their site:
Almost Unlimited Colours
Basic Invite is one of the few stationary websites that allows customers a seemingly unlimited number of 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, you can make sure the card looks exactly like you want it to.
Over 40 Envelope Colours To Choose From
Basic Invite has over 40 different envelope colors to choose from. With so many options, customers can make their envelope match the invitation. All of Basic Invite’s envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be closed quickly and securely. This is honestly a lifesaver for me. Having to wet the glue or lick an envelope is just not something that I want to do.
Get Fancy With Foil
Not many online retailers offer foil cards, and if they do, it’s very limited. Foil cards are available through Basic Invite in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. I love foil because I think it adds a little something extra!
Something like a custom sample might not matter for your holiday cards (or maybe it does!), but for something like wedding invitations or even birth announcements and other milestones, being able to order a printed sample of your actual invitation before placing your final order is a wonderful thing. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that actually provides this option. They want you to be sure that your card is perfect in real life!
Convenient Address Capturing Service
Time is a big constraint for a lot of people and I know this is something that can often hold people back from sending out holiday cards every year, even though they really want to. The address capturing service that Basic Invite offers allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Oh and it’s free! Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.
