When my son turned one, I spent a lot of time creating his birthday invitation. For his second birthday, I decided I didn't want to bother and went old-school with it - store bought and filled in the blanks! I can't be the only one that stresses out over making my own invitations, right? It's time-consuming and can be pretty tedious.
This post is sponsored by Basic Invite. All opinions are my own.
This is why I love Basic Invite - you can still create beautiful custom invitations, without all the stress of designing them on your own. You can even order a sample of your invitation, so you can see what it will look like before you place your final order!
Here are a few other things that make Basic Invite a great option for custom invitations:
Almost Unlimited Colors
My son's first birthday was a UNO themed party which means lots of colors. And you would think primary colors would make designing a card easy, right? Wrong. Getting the colors just right so they looked "primary" but would still pop on the black background was probably the most tedious task of creating the cards. I definitely could have used Basic Invite and their almost unlimited selection of colors!
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes
With Basic Invite, you can make your invitation stand out before it even gets opened with one of 40 different color options for envelopes! Plus, all Basic Invite envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.
Address Capturing Service
Of all of the Basic Invite features, this is by far my favorite. It has restored my faith that I will send invitations again! Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to gather addresses from friends and families, simply by sharing a link on share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Also, Basic Invite offers recipient address printing for free on all Christmas card orders.
Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
