*This post was sponsored by the wonderful Basic Invite, but all opinions are my own.*
Growing up in a huge family called for lots and LOTS of holiday cards. My parents would use tacks to display all of our cards around one of the big doorways in our house so that you’d see them the whole month of December. I always loved getting cards from family as far as Germany or Alaska or even just Southern Wisconsin. 😉 I especially loved the ones that came with letters with details all about my cousins, aunts and uncles lives in the past year.
Since I’m out on my own and have built my own little family with Ben and Cora, I can’t wait to do holiday cards this year to send to friends and family, but honestly had no idea where to start. I’m so so so glad that Basic Invite reached out to me to tell me all about what makes them special. There’s over 250 Christmas card and holiday card designs! I’m pretty much set on dog Christmas cards?! We’ll just switch out this super cute baby with a super cute Cora …
There’s also some fantastic options for newlyweds but *AHEM* no ring here (
Not into sending out holiday cards, but you’re having a party this year? How about an elegant holiday party invitation? Or make custom Christmas party invitations – and please send me one because I haven’t been invited to any Christmas parties yet this year. 🙄
I love how personal you can make these cards and invitations, and I can’t wait to use them *some day* for my wedding invites (I mean, of course I’m going to make two engagement hints in one post.) They even have foil designs, which I think are super classy and beautiful, but normally very expensive. Their foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold with flat or raised foil. Here’s an example:
Here are a few other reasons Basic Invite stands out to me:
- Almost Unlimited Colors – 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.
- Custom Samples – You can order a printed sample of your actual invitation to see exactly how it will print and feel the quality of the paper.
- Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – There are 40 different color options to choose from for envelopes – how cool is that?! Oh, and they’re “peel and seal” so no envelope-licking necessary. 🎉
- Address Capturing Service – You can share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. to request your friends and family’s addresses! Plus, recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. HEYO.
