If you are reading this then chances are you love anything pretty like I do. When working on designing an event I always think about how to make the theme personal to my client first, then I tap into selecting the perfect color palette. Most often, the colors I pull together for my events are soft, pastel and even custom. Being able to customize anything is at the true core of my event design with the intention to stay unique in my overall design. That being said, once my design aesthetic is finalized I always like to make sure that my event invitations also match all the overall theme and design of my party in the making. A really thought out invitation sets the mood for any event and creates much excitement and anticipation for it. I recently learned about a company called Basic Invite and I love all of their standard design templates as is, but furthermore I love all of the customization options for their stationery. The days of handing over your custom invitation to a graphic designer is becoming far few and between with all of the digital customization options companies like Basic Invite offers. Basic invite is 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 and you have over 180 colors to choose from. How amazing is that? Having all these color options is really what sets Basic Invite apart from other online stationery companies. Aside from digital invitation options they also offer custom samples for their printed invitations and envelopes. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. This is a great option for people who like to see and feel their paper quality to make sure the card is overall perfectly pretty. Basic Invite has over 40 different colors of envelopes to choose from which makes it easy to ensure that all of the design elements match the invitation. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so they can be closed quickly and securely. I like to get my children involved in a lot of what I do these days now that they are older and having the peel and seal option on the envelopes is a great way for my children to get involved to be able to help me with their invitations.
Another convenient digital option is Basic Invite’s address capturing service. They offer an addressing capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. This feature makes things so convenient for those who have been putting off holiday cards like myself. I am great about creating beautiful event invitations but terrible about sending holiday cards. Additionally, Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.
I don’t know about you guys but I feel like everyone around me is expecting. I have a lot of friends and clients who are expecting their first child or adding more beautiful babies to their already beautiful family. New babies (and even fur friends) are one of the many beautiful blessings coming out of our current pandemic and being quarantined at home. I was invited to my first virtual baby shower this year and I have to say while it wasn’t a traditional in person baby shower, it was still so beautiful to be digitally connected rather than not be connected at all. Basic Invite has some great digital options for newborn announcement cards, holiday birth announcement cards, and baby birth cards, all a great way to stay connected with sharing baby news.
