It’s time to send Christmas Cards, and this year we have our lives together to get ours out early. Come on now; I know my house is not the only one sending cards out on December 22. Well, not this year. Our beautiful Christmas cards are going out today, and I owe it all to Basic Invite.
We usually run out to buy preprinted cards. Nothing wrong with that, but we wanted to step our game up and send something a little more personal. A picture of our family on the card that people can keep. Carlos even made the card. We used a picture from a very special day for our family. The day of my husband’s promotion ceremony to a US Naval Commander while stationed in Hawaii. If you’re a regular reader, you already know the story behind our move. Look, I can’t even lie and say that I’ve gotten over it yet. DC is great, but DC is COLD right now.
We receive beautiful Christmas cards every year from family and friends. Ones with lovely family pictures and Merry Christmas written across them. And here I am heading off to the store to buy the picked over ones to mail. Ok, let me be real. Very few of the prepackaged cards are mailed. Why? Because everyone else sends us such beautiful Christmas cards and there’s no way I can mail mine, and it’s so close to Christmas. Nope, nope, nope. Again, nothing wrong with prepackaged, but why not grab some custom cards with a cute picture and message from you.
I’ve ordered cards from Basic Invite in the past and loved the quality and customer service. So, let’s do Christmas Cards too.
Why Did I Use Basic Invite For Christmas Cards?
Ok, I’m not very creative, nor tech savvy. Give me something simple to design my cards with. With Over 500 Christmas card and holiday card designs, you can’t wrong. It was as simple as point and click. That’s right. I uploaded my photos, placed them in the card design and ordered. My husband has an ongoing joke about me and any sort of technology. His words…”Babe, before you contact technical support, are you sure it’s not user error? I love you.” Just rude, right? Lol Naw, just kidding, not rude at all. It’s 100% truth. We love poking fun at one another about things. Keeps the love and romance alive.
Anywho, let me tell you about the savings you can get on these Christmas cards. Use the coupon code holi30 and save 30% off your holiday card purchase. Here are some other great things to keep in mind too:
- 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. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.
- Custom Samples – Basic Invite is 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 feel the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.
- Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our 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 of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without licking a single one.
- Address Capturing Service – 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 Christmas card orders.
- Foil – Foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
