I don't know when it began, but I have a little obsession with stationary. In my closet here at my home office, the shelves are bursting with all sorts of beautiful thank you notes that I've yet to use because I don't want to get rid of them just yet and as the seasons change I find reasons to purchase all sorts of beautiful gift tags, invitations and thank you cards.
You see, as an event planner (my full time), I see the difference that stationary brings to the occasion. It's what I like to call, part of the details. The details of an event all come together and make something spectacular and contribute to the overall guest experience. The trouble with this can sometimes be bringing your personality into the stationary that you're ordering, because so many websites offer standard suites ... and what's the fun in that?
When I discovered Basic Invite, my world was complete.
While Basic Invite is most well-known for their wedding invitations and save the dates, they really have a fabulous selection for any event from a shower to a graduation announcement or even a Valentine's Day Cocktail Party (I just ordered mine!).
I'm personally also really loving their picture invitations ... ladies ... they even have birthday photo invites - how perfect is that for a first birthday or milestone?!
As someone who is no stranger to the online stationary world, I had so much fun getting lost in Basic Invite's website. Not only was their website tech and user-friendly for those of us who certainly aren't graphic designers, but the choices and selections felt limitless.
Basic Invite is one of the few stationary websites that allows its customers to choose from just about any color for every element with an instant preview online, plus you can select from 40 different envelope colors to set the tone of the theme or invitation before your guests actually even open it up! Total customization? Yes, please!
I'm personally really impressed with the scope of design options that are on their site. I'm loving how versatile the design choices are from fun children birthday invitations to swoon worthy wedding suites.
One of the absolute best features of their site though has to be the address capturing service. Coming from someone in the wedding and special event industry, this one's a keeper. All you have to do is share a link to your social media sites and your friends and family can safely input their emails and you'll be able to access it all on your customer account. If you haven't already had to recently update your address book, take it from me and trust that it's really difficult (even through text) to get people to respond to you; however, everyone's on social media and so it's a quick click and really convenient way to get the addresses that you need without hassle.
