I used to spend HOURS crafting the perfect holiday card. Seriously–HOURS. Not just because I’m a perfectionist, but also because as an interfaith family it can be hard to find the right card that conveys the perfect message that is inclusive of all our family and friends. I would end the night with a sore neck and empty glass of wine, frustrated that a website crashed or a coupon code didn’t work, promising myself that next year I would try a different option next year. Well, next year is HERE and I’m happy to report that I found a great way to truly customize our family’s holiday cards—Basic Invite Customized Stationery.
I received complimentary stationery from Basic Invite. All opinions are my own.
Truly Custom Stationery
Basic Invite is similar to many other online stationary stores, featuring holiday cards, birth announcements, wedding invitations, business cards, etc. But what makes Basic Invite stand apart is its truly custom products and services. With over 180 colors to choose from, you can choose from MILLIONS of color and font combinations to make the stationery that is PERFECT for you.
You aren’t restricted to a certain template like on other sites—and there is ample inspiration to help guide you in creating your one-of-a-kind piece. Basic Invite has so many cute Christmas cards and I’m thrilled with the one we choose. Whether you are looking for a single photo or a collage, printed lettering or whimsical script, Basic Invite has exactly what you are looking for.
Since our amazing photographer, Kristen Lisa of Kristen Lisa Photography, managed to actually snap a photo of brotherly love during our holiday family photo shoot, we knew that the “Brushy Love” card was perfect for us.
The team over at Basic Invite knows that the holidays can be expensive and stressful, so they offer up free shortcuts to make the season much more festive. Among them are complimentary holiday cocktail party invites as well as the option for customers to instantly print their own envelopes at no charge.
You can also pay an additional fee and have Basic Invite address, stamp, and send your invitations for you. If that isn’t a game changer for moms during a busy holiday season, I don’t know what is!
Quick Shipping and Great Discounts
I must admit that this is the EARLIEST I have ever ordered our holiday cards (I blame the snow on Halloween revving up my holiday to-do list) so I wasn’t crunched for time in ordering my cards. But even if you wait ‘til the last minute, Basic Invite guarantees that you will receive your order in 5 business days, and there is always a deal to be had (right now use code HOLI30 for 30% off holiday cards).
Stay tuned for more of my holiday hacks as we get closer to the most festive time of all!
