If you have been looking and trying to find a great online personalized card or invitation company to work with, then I may have just found the perfect fit just for you.
Do you just need an everyday piece of stationary or something for special occasions? You can find it all at Basic Invite. I am partnering with them for this post to give you some great insights on their beautiful products.
Finding Just the Right Online Personalized Card or Invitation Company Can be a Task
Over the years I have used “many” online services for ordering personalized cards or invitations. Some have been excellent – pure rhapsody to order, but turn out to look a little redneck when they arrive. Colors disappoint, card stock (well, it just wasn’t – only a heavy paper), size & type of font range, and can be an overall let down. Therefore, when I found Basic Invite I wanted to share the results of what they offer.
When Ordering Cards or Invitations, Online Selections Can Be Limited
We all know that variety and customization are what set the tone for making an event “super special” right from the start. Having the options that are offered on this site is almost overwhelming, except it’s not, because it is so user friendly. Let’s just list a few that are available that can make you stand apart.
Options For Making an Outstanding Personalized Card or Invitation:
- Paper Quality (You pick)
- Size of Product
- Color of Paper (Almost unlimited! Over 180)
- Color of Fonts (So many)
- Spacing Details/Fonts
- Easy to Use Templates
- Pictures Included or Not
- Envelope Selection (Over 40 colors, peel & seal, tons of options)
- Double or Single Sides
I’m sure that I am missing several things from the above list, but these are the major hitters that rank whether it’s worth me even venturing into designing a card with a particular company or not. Basic Invite has ALL of the above and much, much more.
Let’s Touch on A Couple of My Must Haves For Placing Online Personalized Cards and Invitation Orders!
Easy to navigate! One of the ALL TIME reasons that I will or won’t use a site like basicinvite.com is because of the level of difficulty or ease when trying to find what I want. This site makes it SO user friendly. Beginners will have no problem getting exactly where and what they want and need.
User friendly. That is the BIGGEST must ever! If you are trying to do a lot of customizing, the easier it is to navigate within the site the more I will use it and refer it to others.
Uploading files can sometimes be more of an issue than you would think or want. When I placed my order with basicinvite.com it was a breeze. Now, choosing which pictures to use out of literally thousands, that was the hard part.
Timing can be a great thing or not. NOT – If you are a procrastinator then this might not be the perfect place for you. If you want to order samples ahead of the actual printing. You must be aware that you need at least 2 weeks lead way of actual order being placed.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. They can see the paper quality and how it will print, and make sure the card is perfect. This is a super important feature to me.
BUT – It is a fantastic thing for all the other issues on timing!!! This deserves a more in-depth conversation than just a sentence or two. Convenience is an underused word, but even more, it is an understatement with Basic Invite!
Who can’t fall in love with a company that just makes your life better?
Basic Invite has an address capturing feature. You are gonna love this y’all… They keep your address list stored for you!
You know, well if you’re like me, that 22 pages of yellow legal pad that was handwritten from graduation that you saved from _____ years ago. The one that has been added to with marriage. Had scratch outs/offs over the years.
Maybe you have had friends that were super ambitious and just changed addresses so many times that they have their own page. Yep, the one that you find out they moved, again every time you check their social media account. What was 22 pages now has its own file cabinet drawer.
NOT ONLY do they keep them stored but they provide you with a link for you to share – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media. Where your friends and family can update their address for you!
Here is the clincher though… The addresses that are stored in your account can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.
Y’all do you get that NO MORE sitting for hours doing handwritten addresses on envenlopes! Save trees and no shortage of envelopes, because if you’re like me there will be no less than three that just have to be trashed.
An Online Personalized Card or Invitation Company Offer Variety
Whether you are looking for specific holiday card offerings, such as Christmas cards personalized just for you or deciding to throw a bash with a New Year card invitation, Basic Invite has what you are looking for. The options are virtually limitless.
The occasions that they cater to are incredible. You will just need to browse through the site for it to ring your bells on what your options truly are. I’m going to list just a few that are super important when there is a long list of addresses waiting for you:
- Baby Shower
- Holidays (ALL)
- Party Invites
This list could go on forever, so I’m just gonna let you work on yours. Basic Invite also offers ALL the accessories that you could possibly want that will coordinate with your invites for your special events. (Seriously, y’all it will blow your mind that it’s all in this one stop shop!)
Another Honorable Mention Besides Just an Online Personalized Card or Invitation Offered
Basic Invite has a sister company, Love vs Design, that can print relocatable wallpaper. You can customize your own wallpaper. It is peel and stick removable paper. Hopefully, this will be something I can partner with and do a deeper dive on in a future post! I can only imagine what I could do for my office. Just think, if I used my travel pictures for an inspirational wall in my office.
Basic Invite can be found not only on their website, but also on several social media platforms. Give them a follow. Then go back and give them a share when you’ve used their site. I truly believe you are gonna love it!
