Loving Lately: Basic Invite

authorSMdotsSo, you are hoping to send out a customized card—whether it is for a wedding, birthday party, holiday, announcement, or baby shower—a quick google search brings up an overwhelming amount of choices; there is Minted, Shutterfly, Zazzle, VistaPrint, the list goes on! It is hard to decide which one to use without filtering through the hundreds of choices that each site offers to find that “perfect” card to represent your special occasion.


Well look no further! Basic Invite is the adorable and affordable one-stop-shop. As an avid fan of custom cards and stationary, I was blown away by the plethora of options that Basic Invite offers. Not only do they offer cards for every occasion, there are also custom envelopes, stickers, business cards, stationary, printables, and free websites to help organize your special day. Basic Invite will answer to all of your needs – keep reading to see for yourself.


Nearly Unlimited Colors

This is what sets Basic Invite apart from the other online companies. Once you choose a design from their seemingly endless options, you can customize the colors of each element on the product from over 180 color options. This makes the product a perfect reflection of your occasion down to the smallest details. Basic Invite is boutique quality with everyday prices. See how I customized baby girl shower invitations (currently 40 % off) below:


First, I chose a design (there are so many adorable options).
Then I started playing around with colors. You can change the font, size of text, shape, and paper quality too!

Feeling Extra?

Basic Invite offers the addition of gold, silver, or rose gold foil (raised or flat) to most products. You can add matching games such as bingo and Mad Libs to match your invites! Check out these storybook baby shower invitations with rose gold accents!BasicInvite22


Feeling unsure if your order will meet your expectations? For a small price (~$10), Basic Invite will send you a sample so you can see and feel the paper and photo quality before you ever have to place the final order! Personally, I am always hesitant to order cards with photo backgrounds because I am worried it will appear grainy, problem solved!

Custom Envelopes

Not only can you customize the colors of your product, you guessed it, you can customize your envelopes too! With over 40 colors to choose from, your card will stand out before it is even opened.

This is my favorite part. I cannot stand licking envelopes. They taste bad and I go through about a gallon of water just to keep my tongue moist to get through them all (pet peeve x100)! Basic Invite‘s offers peel and seal envelopes. Are you sold yet? I certainly am.peel-and-stick-web

But that is not all! Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link via social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are then stored in your Basic Invite account and can then be selected during the design process. So easy!!!

Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51dots
