favor-“ette”: basic invite

Disclosure: This post has been compensated by Basic Invite. All opinions are – as always – completely my own.

It’s that time of year again.

And by “that time”, I mean what I like to call “Card Season”.

Mother’s Day. Father’s Day. Confirmations. Graduations. Weddings. Showers. And in our family, several birthdays and anniversaries.

And while e-mail and texting have certainly made it quicker and easier to reach out to loved ones, there is still something special about receiving an actual, tangible, card or invite. I always made the kids send “real” thank you notes, and there will always be special occasions that warrant something a little more than just a mass e-mail.

So I was delighted when the folks at Basic Invite reached out and asked me to share their lovely products with you – my lovely readers!

Unlike other sites, Basic Invite is one of the few that allow customers almost unlimited color options online (with instant previews). Once you select your design you can change the color of every element (there are over 180 colors to choose from!). As someone with a very “particular” aesthetic I appreciate being able to make sure my design is exactly how I want it – down to the littlest detail. There are also over 40 different colors of envelopes to choose from – and they are all “peel and seal” (one of my favorite features)!

I love that you can order a printed sample of your actual card or invite – to see the final product and hold it in your hand before placing your order.

And last (but not least), Basic Invite offers an address capturing service – share a custom link on any social media channel to request addresses from friends and family, to store in your account and then access during the design process. Basic Invite will provide recipient address printing at no charge for holiday card orders – a real timesaver, yes?

Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off your order, with code 15FF51 – so the time is pretty much perfect to give them a try! Maybe you need high school graduation party invitations? Or graduation thank you cards? As I said, tis the season, so much to celebrate, and Basic Invite makes sharing your message in style pretty much effortless!

You can find so much more on the Basic Invite website, and you can also follow them on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.

What are you celebrating this season?
