It’s November and I know a lot of you are already thinking about your holiday cards.  Whether you are using professional portraits taken specifically for this or you are using a photo from your summer vacation, Basic Invite can help you create the perfect holiday cards.  With unique technology, design control, and over 500 Christmas and holiday card designs, Basic Invite allows you to create truly custom designs. 

I created a few custom holiday sample cards using photos from some of my favorite sessions over the past year.  Because I specialize in family portraiture, focusing on maternity, newborns, and families, I wanted to be able to create samples that not only celebrate the joy of the holiday season but the beauty and excitement that comes with growing your family and the big life changes you may have experienced this year.

Speaking of samples, Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as feel the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order.  I created the sample card above to be a holiday themed baby announcement.  All of the card designs available come with an option to add photos and/or text to the back of your card.  This is perfect for all the information you would add to a baby announcement.

With Basic Invite, customers have 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 smallest detail. This is what sets Basic Invite apart from almost any other online stationery company.

The most tedious part of mailing cards and invitations is gathering up all of the address.  To help alleviate the stress of this task, Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows you to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request your family and friend’s addresses which will be stored in your account and can then be selected during the design process. They also offer recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders!

Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations.  Offering over 40 different colors to choose from, you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened!  All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without licking a single one.  Can I get an AMEN?!
