Make your Birthday Invitations and Holiday Cards Stand Out

If you know me well, you would know I’m someone who loves old-fashioned correspondences…I’m referring to snail mail. My mom instilled in me the importance in sending hand-written birthday invitations, heartfelt thank-you notes after events, sympathy cards and personalized holiday greetings.  Sure you can send a text or email in a click, but people still like receiving tangible pieces of mail.

Not going to lie, I never overlook the details of a well-designed invite or greeting card and always on the look out for trends in stationery. Because this is something I invest time into every year for birthdays and holidays, I am happy to partner with Basic Invite to share what their unique company has to offer! (Make sure to see the discount codes on the bottom of this post!)

Pick a color, ANY color
One major reason Basic Invite is unique is because they offer over 180 different color customization options!! This practically unlimited colors and then you can have instant previews online to make sure your card looks exactly how you envision it.. Themed parties like birthdays and showers with specific color schemes are soooo trendy these days, so I love that you can customize your invites to match your decor!

If that color-customization wasn’t good enough, Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors. Talk about making a statement with your invitation before it’s even opened! You really can make personalized birthday invitations with a few clicks.

Making Addressing Easy-Peasy
One of the downfalls to sending snail mail is collecting everyone’s home addresses! No problem here. Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process.
**Holiday card alert!!!:  Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.

Extra touch of pizzazz
I’m a big fan of adding texture to a card with glitter or foil. Basic Invite has foil cards available in gold, silver, and rose gold. For all of Basic Invite’s unique foil designs you can choose flat or raised foil!!!

I love obsessing over little details and this brand really lets you play with all the options. Here are some examples of awesome birthday invitations and customized birthday invitations:

They have activity-specific choices as well. For example, you can even make bowling birthday invitations

I wish I had known about Basic Invites prior to planning Carter’s 1st birthday last month or even my husband’s 40th last year. Luckily, the holidays are coming up and we always do a photo holiday card, which we send out to friends and family. Here’s one of the photos we used last year:

There’s no question which company I’ll use this year for our holiday cards. They have so many to choose from and customizable options that make it nearly impossible to have the same card as someone else. Here are just a sample of some great choices of holiday cards:

Clearly I’m partial to this company…but in addition to quality products and all these great features that Basic Invite offer their cards are at the right price point. Some start as lower than $1 per card! Here are some extra discounts for you on top of that:
