I love pens and paper, and, of course, that includes paper invitations…so when basicinvite.com asked if I wanted to write about them, I went to their site and tooled around, because I do my research first, people. Disclaimer: I was compensated for this post and received sample note cards to facilitate with writing this post. All opinions are, and always will be, my own.
And…wow! 180 different color options. Really, so you can make everything exactly the way you want it – down to the tiniest detail. And you can order a printed sample of the actual item – that means you can see exactly what it will look like and feel the paper before you place your final order. So I played around for a bit – well, actually longer than a bit.
Have a special event coming up? Basic Invite has you covered! There are literally thousands of customizable invitations for birthdays, graduations, baby and bridal showers, Bat and Bar Mitzvahs, and weddings – and include everything from save the dates to both formal and informal wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards! You can also set up a free birthday or wedding website. Love this feature where you can collect addresses, share maps, registries and photo galleries.
And since we don’t have any big events coming up, I chose to make note cards – I can always use note cards. I used a customizable design called Paint Chips and changed the colors. Just after I placed the order there was a notice in my inbox with a suggestion from one of the designers that one of the colors I had picked was too light and made a suggestion of a color choice that would work better (hydrangea) which I loved! Also there are 40 plus envelope colors – love that they all are peel and seal.
Basic Invite loves paper, too, and not only do they have gorgeous stationery, but they also offer super cute free downloadable items like table numbers, recipe cards and gift tags to make sure your day is extra sweet. I printed the tags out at home on simple oak tag paper and they’d be great for end of year teacher gifts (yes, it’s that time of year in case you hadn’t noticed).
