Some time ago I started to make my own holiday cards or have them customized online. I can never seem to find what I'm looking for at the store, and with my unique sense of humor and love for irony, I am not a fan of the super sappy and generic cards. Last week I found out about Basic Invite, an online service for creating customary stationary and invitations, just in time as I brainstorm what quirky cards I'll be sending out this year. For me a meaningful holiday card can be the difference between getting stuffed into that time capsule box o' cards from Christmases past, or having a card front and center on the fridge. I prefer to give and receive something personal to see how my friends and family change through the years, and of course my family looks forward to the photo Christmas cards featuring my fur babies in their Christmas best. Here are 8 fun and festive ideas on how Basic Invite can jazz up your holiday invitations and cards.
Basic Invite offers over 250 holiday designs, 40+ different envelope colors, and over 180 different color options, so your design comes out exactly the way you want it. Not everyone can say this, and I've had woes with getting the coloring just right, so I appreciate the diversity in color options and hues. This is also one of the few websites that allows the user the ability to order a printed sample before committing to and paying for a whole order. They even have an address capturing service that allows you to share a link on your social media pages to request your friends and family's addresses, to be stored in your customer account. They also offer recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.
I've been pinning ideas for holiday cards for weeks, so I'm so excited to know about Basic Invite. They are also running a promotion of 30% off when you use coupon code: holi30. Gather your Pinterest inspiration, take your photos, and spread plenty of cheer with your own invites and cards this season. Have fun!
