It Is The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year... And You Need Some Holiday Cards

by - November 12, 2018

It's the most wonderful time of the year... and your mailbox is about to be FULL of Christmas cards.



I really love getting Christmas cards in the mail every year. It is so cool to see the cute holiday photos from family and friends that I don't see every day. I love the holiday season and Christmas cards are just so sweet to receive during the holidays, am I right?

The thing about Christmas cards is that sometimes, finding the perfect card is tough. I enjoy being able to customize my Christmas cards and add a cute photo or two to it! I want the card to be unique and different. I also want it to be good quality. Nobody likes a blurry or pixelated card, especially when you're paying good money for a bunch of cards to send to your loved ones. 

Basic Invite was kind enough to sponsor this post and I love all their products! The choices are endless, you can get samples, and I mean... talk about customization. Wow, Basic Invite doesn't disappoint! And I mean, with over 500 Christmas card and holiday card designs, what more could you want?

Here are a couple of my favorite things about Basic Invite...

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 really sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company that I've seen.

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. This is so important to be because like I said, I've ordered cards before that turned out not like I expected.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes - Basic Invite is just as colorful with the envelopes as with the 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 their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without licking a single one. How great is that? The days of licking envelopes are behind us!

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. This is so helpful, because I definitely maybe know like five addresses by heart.

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. These are so chic and cool!

I ordered a few different items from Basic Invites. First, let's talk about the Christmas picture cards! The holiday cards maker is also really easy to use, so customization is simple!






















I love, love, love this card! It is really simple and this picture of David and I, despite being taken with my iPhone, looks pretty good on it. Like I said before, the holiday cards maker is so simple to use.

As I was browsing, some of their custom holiday cards for businesses caught my eye and I'm so glad that I ordered some! I never even considered sending out a Christmas card to other people and businesses that I work with until I saw all their holiday cards made just for businesses. Talk about a holiday game-changer.



Want a holiday card from me? All you gotta do is follow me on Instagram and then DM me or comment on a post what you want to see here! Easy, right?

If you're hosting a holiday party this year, Basic Invite also has you covered! They have so many designs and you can customize and personalize your cards to make it perfect for whatever the occasion and party may be! I love this one and it also gave me a super great idea for a Christmas party to host this year!


Right now, Basic Invite is offering 30% off with coupon code: holi30 and you won't want to miss out on this discount! Get all your holiday card shopping finished in one purchase!

Real quick, I know we've talked a lot about holiday cards, but Basic Invite has so much more, including business cards! I love a good business card and I ordered these two designs. One is for my work in broadcast media and the other is for my work right here. Pretty, am I right?



When are you sending out your holiday cards? I definitely need to get on that... I'm staring at the pile of cards just waiting to be addressed. 

What's left on your holiday to-do list? My shopping is already pretty much done because I'm a psycho, haha, but those dang Christmas cards are just staring at me. 

'Tis the season! (whatever that means)
