Brighten Your Season with These Festive Holiday Cards by Basic Invite 💌☃️

"You have such a pretty face. You should be on a Christmas card." - Buddy the Elf

I always thought that holiday cards were for families or couples that wanted to take cute photos together. Let’s be honest, how many of you would actually want to see a picture with me and my cat wearing a Santa hat?😹  With the holiday season in full swing, it’s also hard to find the time to design and send out Christmas cards. Until one day, I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops, and discovered Basic Invite!🍭

Basic Invite is an online stationary design company that offers hundreds of quality products for you to choose from. Their platform allows you to easily create cards that are uniquely your own. They are currently featuring over 500 Christmas and holiday card designs. From simple Christmas cards to corporate Christmas cards, they have it all. You can even be super fancy and go for the trifold holiday cards!

Right now, Basic Invite is offering 30% OFF with coupon code: holi30 

I decided to give them a try to create a few holiday cards for friends and family. Not only was the design and order process easy, but it made me feel like a seasoned pro. They were delivered about a week after I ordered them and arrived in pristine condition. They were packaged securely with tons of padding for guaranteed protection. Most importantly, I LOVED THEM!😍 My designs turned out beautifully. The quality and vibrancy of the colors was honestly incredible. Each card came exactly as previewed online. I couldn’t have been more impressed. Check out a few of my favorite designs below!

If you’re a Grinch when it comes to holiday cards, Basic Invite will brighten your season.  Don’t believe me? Here are some of my reasons for choosing Basic Invite as my go-to card design website:

🎄 Almost Unlimited Colors


Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you to choose from over 180 different color options with instant previews online. What I love most is that you can change the color of every element on your card design. Many companies limit you to only changing one or two aspects. Basic Invite gives you full control to design the card of your dreams.

🎁 Custom Samples


Basic Invite gives you the ability to order a printed sample of your designed invitation so that you can see exactly how it will look in person. This allows you to make any changes to the design before ever placing your final order. 

💌 Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes


You can’t have the perfect holiday card without an envelope to match. Basic Invite allows you to choose from over 40 different colors of envelopes. All of their envelopes are peel and seal. This means you don’t have to lick a single envelope and be left with that awful aftertaste! 

🏠 Address Capturing Service


This perk may have been the deciding factor for me! Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows you to share a link on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to request your friends and family’s addresses. They will then be stored in your personal account and can be selected during the design process. If that’s not amazing enough, Basic Invite also offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. They even offer a Mailing Service that will stamp and mail cards for you!

 Foil Holiday Cards


I am obsessed with adding a little “glam” to all of my cards. Basic Invite offers foil holiday cards that are nothing short of festive. They are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. You can choose from flat or raised foil depending on your preference. 

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Don’t be a humbug! There is still plenty of time to design and order your personalized Christmas and holiday cards. Right now, Basic Invite is offering 30% OFF all holiday cards.
