Vendor Love // Basic Invite
I’m guilty. I love online shopping. It’s only a tad bit addicting. ;) But it simply makes life so much more convenient. It saves you time, and we all know how precious time is. I need as much time I can get to tackle my giant pile of editing I need to do (and of course live a meaningful life while I’m at it). But I wanted to share a website that definitely comes in handy when it’s time for celebrating life’s special moments. Basic Invite is my go-to when it comes to ordering swoon worthy save the dates, wedding invitations, stationery, thank you cards, and much much more at an affordable price. And it’s an honor to have partnered with them!
Their website is easy to navigate and makes customizing a lot of fun. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers 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. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it – down to the littlest detail. You also have the ability to order a printed sample of your actual invitation so that you can see exactly how it will print (and get a feel for the paper quality) before you take the plunge and place your final order. Simply wonderful eh? Good customer service is what makes the world go ’round.
They offer an array of beautiful, on-trend styles from bohemian to rustic to modern and more. They also offer new clear invites. Clear invites? What’s that? Sounds strange, but it’s a fascinating concept for an invite! You must see it.
I’m a big lover of the tangible and tactile. There’s nothing like physically holding a beautifully printed invitation or thank you card in your hands. It certainly beats an email, text or a Facebook invite. When someone takes the time to mail out a card they created for you just shows how much they truly care. I personally love saving mementos like these. I have a vintage suitcase and an old cowboy boot box filled with heartfelt cards from my dear loved ones that I have saved throughout my life. 50 years from now, I know it’ll be such a joy to sit down and go through it all. To remember and reminisce on those good times.
Remember when I talked about convenience? Another super cool feature about Basic Invite is their use of address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. You can share a link, easily collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. It’s as simple as that.
Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to designing the envelope so that it stands out before it is even opened. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so they can be securely closed quickly. So, save your tongue for enjoying that ice cream cone instead. You deserve it.
The holidays are quickly coming up, therefore I highly suggest perusing their ‘holiday’ section. There are SO many new goodies there. Their gold foil offerings are so dreamy, I personally love the rose gold options. Let me know if you’d like a code to get a pretty sweet discount on your next order. Let your creativity flourish!
