In case you hadn’t realized by now, I love the holiday season. Between the memories and traditions, decorations, music and everything in between, it truly is the most magical time of the year. Growing up I always looked forward to the holidays- especially when we got to decorate the tree and watch our favorite Christmas movies- and I can’t help but smile when I look back over the years at all the memories that were made during that time. When I got married, I couldn’t wait to start making my own traditions and memories with my husband, and I hope our kids enjoy this time of year as much as I do someday.
Now that I’m “all grown up” some of my favorite things about the holidays have changed. Instead of getting excited about what Santa’s bringing me this year, I get excited about buying gifts for loved ones. Instead of looking forward to my class Christmas party, I get excited about hosting parties at my house and having friends over for dinner. And instead of helping my mom pick the *perfect* picture to use for our Christmas card, I’m the one making the calls. It’s cool to see how as I get older, my traditions become more “me” and I love it!
And this year, I’ve been able to add something new to my list of holiday favorites: Basic Invite!
I am thrilled to partner up with Basic Invite today, because when it comes to holiday party invitations, or your yearly photo Christmas cards, you seriously don’t have to look any further than them. Trust me… I’ve used so many other online printing services, and none have been as easy to use, customize and work with than Basic Invite. And don’t get me started on the amazing quality, customer service and other features they offer!
One of the things I love about Basic Invite is the ability to purchase custom samples of your cards before you bulk order. I don’t know about you, but I like to feel the quality of the paper, see what it looks like printed out, and make sure I absolutely love my cards and invites before committing to a huge amount of them. Trust me… I’ve regretted card decisions before all because I didn’t have the ability to see a sample before purchasing. Now I’ll never have to wonder!
Another favorite thing is the fact that they have almost unlimited color choices, AND you can see instant previews online of what your cards and invites will look like. You can change almost any element of the card to over 180 different color options, which help make your card one of a kind, and perfect for your special occasion! I feel like this is one of the things that really sets Basic Invite apart from the competition, and it’s definitely a huge draw for me. Oh, and did I mention they also have foil cards that come in gold, silver and rose gold? I had serious *heart eyes* the entire time I browsed their website.
When it comes to addressing envelopes, I don’t know about you, but it can feel like a huge waste of time. Especially when you accidentally write something wrong, or have to hand write your address on every single envelope. Well with Basic Invite, you don’t have to worry about that anymore! You can easily gather addresses through their address capturing service with a simple Facebook, Twitter or any other social media link, and they will print them on your Christmas cards for no extra cost.
Ummm what?! How amazing is that?!
And they make it even easier for you with their peel and stick envelopes that come in 40 different colors. It’s a huge time saver, and something I know every busy woman will appreciate.
So naturally you can see why Basic Invite has made it onto my “Favorite Things” list this year, and I know I’m never going to look anywhere else for my Christmas cards and party invitations. If you’re interested in trying them out, I highly recommend checking out the holiday party invitations templates and work Christmas party invites. Don’t you love all of them? I seriously can’t pick a favorite!
I wish I had known about Basic Invite when I was getting married, because I know I would have loved using them for all my invitations and save the dates. But I know they will be my go-to site for any holiday parties I host this year, and other events in the future. The quality is simply that amazing, and I feel like it’s worth every penny!
