1. Happy Thoughts

Before I really dive in, I wanted to add that when working with Basic Invite, I found the entire experience to be inspiring and quite frankly relaxing. Everything from the colors, design palette and overall tone of the website, gave me confidence that I would find what I was looking for all in one location. One of the biggest areas that surprised me was how much added value you receive when working with them and the fear of having to use multiple platforms and companies to achieve one cohesive goal was officially eliminated from my mind.

When trying to think of a good comparison, it reminds me of a beautiful sunny day shopping with a good friend. You enjoyed a cup of coffee together, just got your nails done and then you find a cute outfit and head into a dressing room that has the best music. You just know in that moment that outfit will look great. Its a great day, great atmosphere and possibilities are truly endless. That is what my overall experience was like working with them. You just feel good vibes the whole way through.

2. Pick A Color, Any Color

Oh my goodness. The Colors! There are so many colors to choose from including over 10 shades of yellow. There is no settling when trying to match a color to your theme. Chances are, they will have the perfect match with their almost unlimited color options. You can change the color of each element on a card, with over 180 different color options and then see an instant preview online. The card can be exactly how you want it, down to the littlest detail. This is a huge reason in my opinion that separates them from other companies.

3. Custom Samples

Basic Invite allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their stationary so they can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before they have to place their final order. All you have to do is hit the “order a sample” button on any invite that you create.

4. 40 Different Envelope Colors

They are just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different envelope colors so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be closed quickly and easily. I remember when I was putting on a large event last year and I wanted a bright red envelope for the invitations to stand out in the mail. It was such a challenge for me to find. I ended up going to several stores locally and still did not find what I was looking for. Having this many envelope choices is a major game changer when planning your next event and allows you to truly stand out from first glance.

5. Over 900 Wedding Invitation Sets

All of their wedding invitations are part of a set. You can have one cohesive look across each aspect of your stationary including save the dates, wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, and even matching thank you cards! They even have matching wedding websites. So Nice!

6. Free Address Collection Service

This was something completely new to me. Basic Invite has a free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. You first share a link via social media or email, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. The free envelope printing is awesome. You can choose from multiple fonts and designs and it looks like a fancy personalized address stamp. This is just another example of how you can even eliminate these extra steps by taking care of it through the Basic Invite platform. Have you ever gone through the effort of ordering cards to your home and end up never sending them all because you did not take the time to address them? Having this feature prevents all laziness from creeping in Haha.

7. Seal and Send Wedding Invitations

Their seal and send wedding invitations are an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP postcard included! The Seal & Send is their newest collection and as a bride, you will LOVE THEM. Currently, they offer 30 designs including very popular foil options, and, like their other products, they are customizable. What’s extra special about their Seal & Sends is that guest’s addresses are printed on the front of each invitation so no envelope is necessary! All you have to do is share a link, collect guest addresses, and upload them onto your design. Once you receive your order all you have to do is add postage, fold your invites, and secure them with a sticker! Simple and easy.

This is one of my favorite aspects of Basic Invite. Their websites are GORGEOUS! They are bursting with 180 color options and they allow you to digitally connect your guests to your big day.
