Party Invitations? Basic Invite has You Covered For Every Occasion & MORE!


Woohoo it's almost Fall y'all and I can't wait!!! Who's with me? As I have mentioned before, Fall is my favorite time of year for so many reasons; but, Fall is also the busiest time of year for me too. Anyways, with this said, it's usually around this time frame, mid-September, I try to start looking ahead to plan for all of the upcoming festivities/events (birthdays, blogger stuff, anniversaries, football/tailgates, holidays, etc.), which is why I am sharing this post with you now. Plus, as you know, I'm a sharer ;) #sharingiscaring


So to me actually throwing or physically mailing cards, invites, thank you notes, whatever is the easy part, am I right? The part I seriously dread most and find the hardest is trying to actually find 1 place to easily and affordable create my event/party invites, thank you cards, holiday card, etc. Who feels me? Really though, I end up spending hours upon weeks trying to find 1 place to meet needs/wants. :(

All I'm Looking/Asking for here is to find 1 place that offers:

  • User friendly website

  • Customer Support you can actually reach

  • Easy to do creations/selections

  • High quality product(s)

  • Affordable

  • Fast shipping

  • A variety of cute selections while being able to customize these selections

  • Or create my own entirely

  • Real preview options before placing my FULL order. Because I have learned what you see online is not what you always get :(

I mean, honestly, is this too much to ask for? Well apparently it is...or WAS until I found Basic Invite.


What's Basic Invite?

Besides being my new go-to shop for EVERYTHING invitations/cards, Basic Invite is an online store that meets ALL the needs/wants I listed above AND MORE! Really, things I didn't even know I needed or wanted, but that are so important! For example, they have an Address Capturing Service. What exactly is this? Well, their address capturing service 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 your personal Basic Invite account and can then be selected during the design process. Isn't this freaking awesome!!!! I mean how many times do you NOT have someones address and you have to either hunt it down or ask them for it AGAIN (which I hate doing and always feel so bad). Plus, they also offer recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. YAY!!!

Basic Invite Differences

Okay, so not only do they offer the super cool Address Capturing Service, but here are some additional services they offer that most others don't:

  • Custom Samples - Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows their customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order. Yep you read this right. AWESOME!!! I can't even tell you how many times I have made a mistake or just hated my final order when I received it and then was stuck with so many cards/invites/etc. that I didn't want or didn't use. So many tears too. :( Seriously, thank goodness my husband is good at everything because he has totally fixed many of my disasters...but I still lost the money which hurts. Anyways, this one is such a big deal to me.

  • Love it Guarantee - SO IMPORTANT! Read my example above, lol.

  • Almost Unlimited Colors - they're also one of the few websites that allows almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. Y'all, I can't tell you how important being able to make these changes to whatever design I select is for me. I absolutely hate when I pick a cute design and think I can change a color, but actually can't when I try. So frustrating! Does this happen to you? I think this may be may FAVORITE feature so far with Basic Invite. :)

  • Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes - Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as we are with their invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes which is so awesome I think because I LOVE fun and standout things! :) PLUS, all of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

  • Foil - Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold AND you can choose flat or raised foil on all of their foil designs. Yay! I love FOIL! So pretty and just the right amount of extra, don't you think? ;)

Not Just Invites


So while the name is Basic Invite, they actually offer so much more!


Feature:: Birthday & Party Invites

So now that I have covered the basics, hehe...see what I did there ;) I have to take a minute and point out their great selection of Birthday and Party Invites! I mean tis the season for holiday parties & tons of birthdays (at least for me). But seriously, they are so awesome! They have every type from:
