“THIS IS A SPONSORED POST ON BEHALF OF Basic Invite. I RECEIVED Product TO FACILITATE THIS POST. ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.
The New Year marks off the excitement and fun for all types of announcements, we all look forward to getting! Now it is time to capture your memories and share your excitement about it to your friends and family! Basic Invite has a card for almost every major life moment including weddings, showers, birth announcements, first birthdays, graduations and more! They even have over 250 Christmas and holiday card styles that it will fit your style if you are planning for the next holiday season!
Did you know that Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online? Your process of selecting a design you will be able to 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. I like this choice of being able to customize my cards to exactly what I want. I have ordered from other competitors before and I feel this company is beyond superior to others with what you get for your money.
You get several choices of unlimited colors options and instant online previews. After 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. You also will get the option of having over 40 different colors of envelopes. Right now, I was happy to find such a unique company that provides such a selection of Birthday and Wedding Invitations. With my Brother and future Sister in Law, planning a wedding is surely not easy, but with all the tools that Basic Invite has they are able to see what they will get before it even ships to their home. Plus with how socially savvy they are on the internet, they are able to go a step further by making a custom invitation website to make it even special. This year marks off so many milestones within my family, Basic Invite will be such a great resource to get the perfect invite to our friends and family.
You got the design down. What do you do when you do not have the addresses to your family or friends especially at the holidays? Don’t worry they have social media to thank for that! Basic Invite offers you an address capturing service during the holidays 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. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all your holiday card orders.
Even with all these choices, what sets this company apart from others I have used is the fact you can order custom samples like cards or birthday invites. You will feel your money was well spent for any occasion!
Now is the time to get this great deal!
Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
