AD – I have to admit one of the things I really did not want to do after I got married was sort out the thank you cards. This was similar after having the gremlin. In fact with our second we didn’t even do them!! How bad is that? For the wedding, I think my Mother-in-Law made them and for the gremlin, hubby designed one using some photos of the gremlin. It was the time and the effort required. What I needed was something like Basic Invite to make life easier and to also have so much choice!
What we want when designing cards for thank yous, weddings, graduations and events, is to make them personal and easy to change. We want to see our designs directly in front of us and we want it to be easy. Basic Invite does all of this.
Who are Basic Invite?
Basic Invite are an online company allowing you to design cards for many occasions. You may want to do a traditional graduation announcement or send thank you cards for graduation gifts.
However, there are also so many other options; wedding invites and save the dates, thank you cards, baby announcements and baby shower dates.
Basic Invite are quite unique also. I know when I am designing things online I want my colours to be exactly how I picture them. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that can give customers almost unlimited colour options and you can preview them immediately. There are 180 colour options to choose from, after you have chosen your design. This is a unique and highly personal option. Basic Invite also offer 40 different envelope colours to really enhance your choice!
You can also choose foil designs in gold, silver and rose gold. These can be flat or raised.
Another service they offer is a free sample of your design before making a mass order! This is brilliant as you can check the paper quality and how your design actually looks. It is so frustrating to have done all the work and you see a teeny error.
They also have an Address Capturing Service, which allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. This is suuuuuch a good idea and often one of the things that puts me off sending them due to finding all my friend’s addresses.
Basic Invite have really thought about their service and offer really unique features when designing your perfect cards, whatever the occasion.
Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51 so if you need some lovely designs, check them out!
