Are you currently planning your wedding or a bridal shower for your best friend? Are you thinking of mailing a personal invitation or an e-vite? Before you decide, take a moment to pause and remember the impact your guests will feel about the occasion.
For me, I love paper. A lot. From my prints to business cards and marketing material, I am pretty specific about the quality I receive from the printer and the stock of paper I am going to be sending to my clients and prospects. I want what they receive to feel special and one-of-a-kind. After all, these pieces brand my business and I want only the best to leave our office.
When it comes to planning a soiree, I am traditional. I don’t believe in e-vites (first of all, my grandma would never receive it and it’s important to me she does). I do appreciate the saving paper part, BUT I am more interested in the experience my guests will receive from start to finish. Call me old-school, that’s totally fine by me! (PS: Before you get mad at me…I work to save paper in other areas and I do recycle 🙂 )
I recently partnered up with Basic Invite an online invitation company that has an inventory of GORGEOUS and customizable designs!
Seriously, look at some of these wedding invitations (note these images are provided by Basic Invite)…
Some of the elements I like most about Basic Invites and what they offer are:
They Have Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers 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.
Custom Samples – They are one of the few websites that allows 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. Such a BIG bonus in my opinion!
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. I personally LOVE vibrant envelopes. When the invitation I send out arrives in the mail, I want it to stand out amongst the bills and credit card promos.
Plus, all of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. Anything to save time, right?!
They Have Over 800 Wedding Invitation Sets – Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set. You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards!
Free Address Collection Service – You can use their free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. Now that is amazing!
Additionally, they do offer wedding websites which will match your stationery design. Talk about brand perfection!
And finally, I am not sure if you follow stationery design, but one style that is hitting the market right now are clear invitations. These are so classy and different!
I am so excited to be able to recommend Basic Invite to my clients. There are so many positives to working with them on designing your keepsakes.
Here is a sample that I designed on their website — it was so easy! Be sure to let me know what you think!
