Five Facts About ‘Basic Invite’ for Expecting Mamas

Five Facts About Basic Invite for Expecting Mamas…

five facts

If you live in Nocatee, you better love kids. And you might want to get used to the baby boom. Right now, there are two women on my block expecting in the fall. One is having a boy, the other, a girl. Their due dates are just days apart. This is the norm and personally, I think it’s a whole lot of fun.

I will be co-hosting a baby shower for one of the moms in August. That’s why I was happy to check out custom baby shower invitations from Basic Invite.

Here is what makes them unique:

Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant online previews. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 color options. You can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is our biggest draw.

Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites allowing customers to order a printed sample of their invitation.  You can see the paper quality and exactly how it will print before you place their final order.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our invitations. You can choose from over 40 different envelope colors and make your invitation stand out before it is even opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

Address Capturing Service – Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media. The link requests your friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in your account for selection during the design process. Basic Invite offers 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.

The above invitation was the first thing I made on Paperless Post. Beautiful, right? It was so easy! The program is user-friendly as it guides you through each step. There are hundreds of options for everything from font style to envelope design. Editing is simple and uploading emails is a breeze. The ‘coins’ you purchase are spent on your design choices and number of recipients.

I had so much fun doing that one, I moved on to this card.

Then, I received this awesome response from one of my recipients:

You are so good! What a cute card! Way to go with personal service.

Try it. You’ll like it. I promise.
