I don’t know about you but right after July 4th, I always start thinking about the holiday season. I especially start budgeting for Christmas cards and Christmas pictures. When my husband and I got married, that was one thing we always wanted to have, a family Christmas card to send friends and family every year.
I was super excited to order a sample of my Christmas card (for FREE) from Basic Invite and they came out more beautiful than I could have imagined. It can be a little overwhelming taking pictures at the end of the year and buying Christmas cards, it adds so much to an already strained budget. However, with Basic invite it was super easy. You can easily select holiday cards, Christmas photo cards, or holiday party invitations templates and customize it to your liking. You can pick the size of the card, color (they have over 180 colors to choose from), how many photos you want on the card (front and back), type (holiday or Christmas) and theme (rustic, classic, etc.). These filters make it so easy to customize the perfect holiday card. I personally wanted the gold foil text, so I chose this one! I think I spent under ten minutes (that’s big for me because I can be a little indecisive). If you aren’t sure if you will like it, you can order a sample of the card for FREE– to see how it will look. Basic Invite is one of the few companies that allows you to do that- another reason why I am a major fan!
Plus, 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 the envelopes are peel and seal so they can be closed quickly and secure. I love this because it adds a certain level of luxury to your Christmas card when it matches.
You can also have your friend’s and family’s mailing addresses put on the envelopes for FREE! They have what is called an “address Capturing Service”-which offers an address capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. I almost died when I read this because it makes locating addresses SO MUCH EASIER! The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders. Also, loving that they will mail it for you as well. This takes so much work and stress off the table for me- especially as a busy working mom of two. I am so happy that I was able to come across this wonderful company and I am a huge fan so I wanted to share.
Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
