Sending mail the old-fashioned way is one of the most classic things a woman can do. Every time I receive a gift or dine at someone's home, I send a handwritten thank you note by mail. Each year, Jacob and I send out a Rosh Hashana card to our friends and family sharing what we've been up to and how everyone is faring. And I personally love running to open the mailbox each day to see what we have gotten from the U.S. Postal Service.
But picking the perfect stationery and choosing the perfect New Year's card is not always easy. Designing, preparing, and selecting the physical mail you will send to those you know can feel stressful and maybe even overwhelming.
So when Basic Invite reached out to me about trying out their beautiful products, I was so excited. I was captivated by all of their beautiful designs and how many options there were to choose from. I absolutely loved the classic look of the invitations, announcements, and stationery. I chose to order a few different samples to see what they looked like in person and was so happy with the results! I personally loved the Bracket edges - they made the cards I designed feel so expensive and fancy.
Basic Invite is unique. It is one of the few websites that has unlimited color options and shows you instant previews online. You can change the color of each and every element on the card, and with SO many colors to choose from, you can make your card look exactly how you want it!
One of the other amazing things about Basic Invite is that you can actually order a sample before placing your final order. This is crucial because you can make any edits you need to before spending all of your money in one place! When I ordered my wedding invitations, I did not have the luxury of ordering a sample so I simply had to hope and pray. Thank God, everything worked out - but it would have set my mind at ease to be able to see just one invitation in advance! As well, even the envelopes at Basic Invite are unique - they come in over 40 colors to match your specific card and they are peel and seal, so the envelopes can be closed with ease.
Another great perk that Basic Invite offers is an address capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite even offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders. This would have been a lifesaver when I handwrote every address for every invitee to our wedding two and a half years ago!
Basic Invite also offers foil cards in gold, silver, and rose gold. You can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite's foil designs - and nothing says fancy like a foiled invitation.
When you're designing an invitation, an announcement, or even thank you notes, it's nice to have flexibility and design inspiration. Basic Invite offers both. Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51. If you're looking to order some stationery (which I'm thinking of ordering myself! I sort of can't believe I don't have any...), wedding invitations, or college graduation announcements, Basic Invite has beautiful and unique options. Especially as graduation season is approaching, now is the time to send out graduation party announcements and to use Basic Invite's college grad announcement templates to design them!
