K: I’m so excited to introduce you guys to Basic Invite, a company that allows customers to create personalized invitations, announcements, and cards. We’ve always been on board with this type of product (you can see last year’s Christmas card here) and it’s so much fun to create and design something that you know lots of friends and family will see.
May seemed like the perfect time to showcase Basic Invite, especially with a need for graduation photo cards, wedding shower invitations, backyard summer parties, and any other special event that may arise. Brandon and I played around on the website because we’re hoping to host a summer party at our house during July. After experiencing the website and talking with a representative, we’re confident that Basic Invite has everything you could possibly need for your next special event announcement.

What Makes Basic Invite Different
If you’ve ever used design sites before, then you know how frustrating it can be when you’re working with a very limited color scheme. We’re completely into color and I loved that Basic Invite offered almost every color under the rainbow, plus variations. With over 180 different colors, you have tons of options in creating the perfect card. They also have foil cards available, which are super trendy and fun right now!
One of the most overwhelming parts about our Christmas cards was that we hand addressed the envelopes. I didn’t want to pay the extra cost for pre-printed envelopes and I didn’t want to input all of those addresses. Basic Invite allows you to link up Facebook, IG, Twitter, or any other social platform to request your friend’s addresses. It then captures those and stores them on your account so that you can easily print. They also let you print the addresses for free on any Christmas card order. Problem solved for 2018!! This is also great for any young grad who has a ton of thank you graduation cards to send out.
If you really want to perfect your design before sending it out, Basic Invite allows for a printed sample to be mailed so that you can see the quality, the design, and proof anything before a huge order. I love this idea! Makes you feel good about ordering something as important as wedding invitations if you get to proof the product before purchase.
Brandon and I were so inspired just from looking at all of the unique designs that they offered! Whether you’re looking for a rustic graduation party invitation or a elegant baby announcement, Basic Invite has you covered. They’re now offering a reader discount of 15% with the code: 15FF51. Because we were so inspired to start creating, we put together a few samples of what we’d like to potentially do for our backyard party this summer! Which one is your favorite?
