Basic Invite


Life has been busy lately to say the least. Honestly though, when is it not?  Mainly, I have been trying to figure out what direction I want to take this blog into, but there have also been other changes taking place in my life.

The biggest being that more and more of my friends move out of state or more than an hour away. Almost anyone can relate to this, because as we get older, priorities change and people who we were used to seeing constantly become those that we only see a few times a year. Of course, with technology being the way it is today, we can keep in contact with our friends & family during any moment of the day. Even then so, this type of communication can be impersonal.

So when Basic Invite asked for me to work with them, I saw it as a great opportunity to add some cute stationery to my collection. Sending & receiving actual mail is always exciting (at least for me).  I love when my friends send me postcards whenever they’re traveling. Even though we communicate through text, it’s a nice memento to receive & it’s just more personal. So now that my friends have moved permanently, I decided it would be nice to send life update notes every few months.

There are so many places to purchase stationery, but the best is definitely at Basic Invite & I’ll tell you why!


It’s always frustrating when you’re not given the option to fully choose how an invitation, card, etc looks like. Well, 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 (including metallic foil colors) so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. 

Basic Invite is also just as colorful with our 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. All their envelopes are peel and seal so they can be quickly and securely closed.


We have all ordered something online at one point that was not what we wanted. Well, when it comes to personalized cards, it’s nice to be able to see what you’ll get before placing a large order. Basic Invite 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.


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. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.

Whether you need new business cards, invitations to a baby shower, or a nice holiday card, Basic Invite is your one stop shop! Right now, they’re having their Christmas in July event & all holiday products are 30% off (CODE: HOLI30). They even have corporate holiday cards. All other products are 15% off (CODE: 15FF51). So, head over to their site to find the cutest personalized items.

Happy shopping!
