Do you send out Holiday cards? I don’t mean to cause panic, but it’s only around 149 days till Christmas. Even less till the Holiday season. Growing up my mom was putting Holiday cards in the mail the day before Thanksgiving so people would have them in hand a day or two after Thanksgiving. My mother in law does the same thing! Haha! It amazes me. It takes time and dedication to do this. Unfortunately, as a working mom, I personally have not been able to do this. It’s hard for me to find time to sit down and handwrite out Holiday cards, address them, stamp them, and send them off. With kids bumping into me and stealing the cards from the stack left to be done it gets frustrating. Haha! But it’s time to start working smarter, not harder.
If you are like me, and you are having a problem getting invites or Holiday cards out because of time or kids then look into Basic Invite. At Basic Invite you can choose from their huge selection of stationery. From weddings, birthdays, graduation, baby showers, you name it they’ve got it. One of the great things about Basic Invite is they understand everyone has different tastes.
So, they give you the ability to customize your stationery with 180 different color options and 40 color options for your envelopes. They even have foil flat or raised options in gold, silver, and rose gold for your stationery. You can even customize the back of your stationery!
See It Before You Buy It Via Samples
Another great thing about Basic Invite is they give you the ability to order samples of your creations so you can see the quality of their product, and so you know what your friends/family will be receiving. The cost of samples depends on the stationery. (Example: A picture holiday card with customized color/pattern back cost’s $2.99.)
Other Basic Invite Perks
Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows you to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, to request friends and family’s addresses. (You can also upload addresses via an excel spreadsheet or input addresses manually.) Recipient address printing does not cost extra!
Now that you know what Basic Invite is, and what they offer, here is a look at some of the products I ordered! Below are the personal Holiday card samples I ordered. While I was perusing the site I was happy to see matching stationery. (I am OCD like that. Haha!) I went with one of their custom holiday photo cards. You can even get holiday cocktail party invites that match your Holiday or Christmas cards. You can go even further and get matching Thank You cards.
Holiday Business Cards
With Basic Invite you can even send out your warmest Holiday wishes and thank your clients, or those who have made an impact on your business. Order Holiday cards for your business, and customize your cards to fit your business color scheme. Below are the samples I ordered. One of their Business Holiday cards and their clear business cards. (P.S. Personally, I think the clear business cards are pretty cool.)
Pricing and Discounts
Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51 plus all Holiday cards are 30% off right now using code HOLI30. Here is a pricing example. I priced it out and you can get 25 victorian Christmas cards with a color pattern back using the 30% off code for around $50.00 shipped to you. That’s not bad! Basic Invites pricing is actually very competitive.
What Set’s Them Apart
Being able to customize your stationery and order samples before you place a big purchase, I feel, sets Basic Invite apart from their competitors. It put’s you the consumer in control of what you would like to send. It also can help save you time, and money. No one wants to make a purchase and then see that the product didn’t turn out as they hoped, or purchase something, but it wasn’t 100% what you wanted because you had to settle. Don’t settle!
