I know this isn’t the typical fashion and style post, however, with blenderstyle’s birthday coming up in August, I wanted to share an amazing stationery company I’ve recently learned more about and am happy to support, Basic Invite. I don’t know about you, but I just feel like life has been full of precious moments this year from my best friends having their first and second child to family members hitting milestone birthdays and friends getting married. It’s still so nice to receive something in the mail from loved ones (aside from bills and junk) and I feel that taking the time to send things like party invitations and thank you cards is becoming a lost form of communication in this digital age. However, who doesn’t love some good refrigerator decor? ;)
Think about how many wedding invitations you’ve received that look exactly the same or evites that you’ve seen multiples times. And, consider the excitement you feel when you receive an invite to something fun or the warm feeling you get when someone sends you a note expressing gratitude. As someone who loves to be able to create and customize things the way I want, especially as a business owner, here are some of the main reasons I prefer Basic Invite below:
Almost Unlimited Colors - they are 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 is what I feel sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company.
Custom Samples - they allow customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes - they are just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their 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 the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed (because licking envelopes is gross!)
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. Also, they offer recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders!
Foil - Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
