The Best Christmas Cards – Basic Invite

christmas card designs basic invite

The Christmas season is just around the corner! This is my BUSIEST time of the year like it is for so many other people! Every year I always have DOZENS of families ask me for my recommendation on a company they should order their Christmas cards from, which one has the best looking cards, which one can ship out the Christmas cards the fastest, etc. Every year I tell them I really don’t know which one is the best, that is until this year! I know the Christmas season is incredibly hectic for everyone so you can take one thing off your list, you don’t have to search for the best company to order Christmas cards from this year – Basic Invite has you covered.

Basic Invite is by far my new favorite place for Christmas cards! For four reasons, The  choices for the holiday card designs, the customization they offer for any of their cards,  the Address Capturing Service they offer, and the samples!

First of all, the choices! They offer almost 1,000 different holiday card designs. So it’s not limited to just Christmas, but Hannukah and New Year cards as well. So no matter if you’re looking for a really simple elegant card to go along with your family’s formal portraits or something really colorful and fun to match the silly photos of your kids, Basic Invite has it!

Next up, the customization! This is honestly my favorite thing about them. As a photographer I’m really picky on having colors match perfectly. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent looking at tons of Christmas cards because none of them really matched or complimented the colors in the photos I planned on using. Basic Invite makes that problem a thing of the past since they offer almost unlimited colors. Once you select a design on their website, you can change the color of any element on the card and have an instant preview.  With over 180 colors to choose from, not only can the invites be exactly how you want them but they can be a one of a kind unique card and perfectly compliment your photos.

The customization doesn’t stop at the cards either! They have over 40 different colors for the envelopes for you to choose from! That way you can have the envelope match the card and stand out in the pile of Christmas cards your friends and families are sure to get. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so they can be closed quickly and securely, so they’re easy to use too!

Then for the Address capturing service! If you don’t know what that means don’t worry you’re not alone. I had no clue this was a thing either before looking into Basic Invite but it’s so cool! Their address capturing service allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are then stored in your account on Basic Invite’s website  and can be selected during the design process. They offer recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders, they’re making it as easy as possible to order Christmas cards!

Lastly, the Samples!  Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. They can see the paper quality and how it will print, and make sure the card is perfect before ordering a large quantity.

Best of all,  Basic Invite currently offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
