Technology is evolving so rapidly that some argue this type of pace can create conditions that are unstable, unpredictable and unreliable.   At times I feel like I can’t keep up.  We are available 24/7 because of digital phones.  We no longer feel the need to print our photos because of digital cameras.  Nor do we send out paper party invites because of digital invitation programs.  Perhaps what we need is a NOT-SO-FAST button and some human touch.

I have to admit I love electronic invitations because they are convenient.  Last Christmas I sent out electronic Christmas cards to our friends and family. Then earlier this year I sent my twins’ birthday party invitations via email.  I even thanked them via email too.  I did all that just to avoid the hassle of selecting the weight of the paper, the ink style, or even embellishments adhered to the paper.

Recently, I received a paper invite for a Halloween Party from one of our friends.  The card, which included a nice handwritten note, some homemade decorations, and a cool ribbon to tie everything closed, was thoughtfully crafted and selected.  These detail elements and tactile information are largely absent with the evites.

When I was introduced to Basic Invite I knew I had to share with you.  With the holidays just around the corner, their convenient process made me re-think the entire Christmas cards methodology.   After all, the paper is designed to connect and enrich where it provides an outlet for creativity, and connect us in personal, meaningful ways.  

That’s why you have to check out Basic Invite because they help you create beautifully designed and artistically impactful printed elements.  In case you are not familiar with Basic Invite, here are some things that set them apart from others…

Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you 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 sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company.

Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you 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.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to your envelopes so that 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.

Address Capturing Service – 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 friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in your 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. You can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

The process is really easy and intuitive.  It took me less than 5 minutes to create a sample!
