Holiday photo card designed by using Basic Invite's template

Somehow October is the start of the holiday season for me. I put it onto my late Dad’s birthday when our family used to gather to celebrate. It is about this time a year that I start getting into the Christmas preparation and shopping mode. I usually start with picking a photo to order holiday photo cards as I like to be ahead of the curve. I want them to be personalized meaning that I have a hand in how they look like.

You can even add foil

When I was a kid, I loved the rich metallic look of Christmas cards so much that I always wanted to keep them. When you like this rich look too, you will be happy to know that you can choose foil holiday cards in gold, silver, and rose gold flat or raised foil on all Basic Invite’s foil designs.

Basic Invite allows you to order a printed sample of the actual invitation card. Thus, you see cannot only see how your color design plays out when printed, but also feel the quality of the paper before you place your final order. How cool is that?

You can go beyond white with the envelopes

White envelops can look like bills. But who will resist opening an envelop in a playful color? Basic Invite’s love of color includes the envelopes of the invitation cards too. You have the choice from over 40 different colors! Another cool thing: You won’t cut your tongue when sealing the envelops because all their envelopes are peel and seal. No licking necessary! 🙂

Basic Invite takes avoids you the hassle of collecting the addresses

When my husband I got married 25 years ago collecting all the addresses for the invitations and announcement was a real time consuming effort. I wish Basic Invite’s address capturing service had been around. This service allows you to simply share a link on your social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)to ask for your family’s and friends’ addresses. This link will store their addresses into your customer account. Once you have designed your very personal invitation card, you select whom of your friends you want to invite. You even can have Basic Invite print the recipient address onto the color envelop at no extra cost on all Christmas card orders. What a time saver!

What is the first thing you do when getting ready for the holidays? Which design would you choose and how would you color your card? When you love to give an unique invitation for Christmas party, get ahead of the curve at their online store.
