This post is sponsored by Basic Invite but my love for these gorgeous invitations is all my own.
Our Christmas party invitations arrived! I was so excited to see our invitations from Basic Invite arrive in the mail a couple of days ago. This year we are planning to host a holiday party at my parent’s hunting lodge and I wanted invitations I could easily customize to match their branding. What we were really hoping to find were elegant Christmas party invitations with a woodsy flair; I think we succeeded, don’t you?
Honestly, it was the pine tree that sold me on that design (Honey & Pine, get it? lol). Their hunting lodge is out on a 205+ acre wooded property so incorporating a woodsy aesthetic was important to us. The Merry Tree design included an option for foil lettering which we almost decided to use because we loved the elegant style of it but ultimately opted to keep it a little more casual. The customization options are nearly limitless with almost unlimited color options for nearly every part of the card, over 40 different colors of envelopes, and foil options.
When you’re designing the card, Basic Invite customization options even let you choose a different color for each word or phrase so you can be as creative as you want. We chose to stay pretty traditional with the green, red, and white since we both use green in our branding and we wanted to be consistent. If you do get creative with the coloring Basic Invite provides instant online previews so you can see the final design without waiting for a proof to arrive in the mail. The different color options help you get exactly what you want, down to the tiniest detail.
Once you’ve chosen your design and customized it to your preferences, order a printed sample (or a few ) so you can see exactly how it prints and evaluate the quality of the paper before placing your full order. I was extremely pleased with ours! The colors are bright and the paper is thick; they really look wonderful.
To make it even easier, Basic Invite offers an address capturing service which is compatible with your social media accounts. Here’s how it works…
- Share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. and ask your family and friends for their addresses
- Your family and friends add their addresses and the information is stored in your Basic Invite account
- During your design process, select the applicable recipient addresses
- Basic Invite prints the recipient addresses on your Christmas card envelopes at no additional cost
Amazing, right? It really couldn’t be any easier.
