Hey there busy mama! Whether you’re planning an upcoming birthday party, looking for simple graduation announcements or throwing a baby shower, I’ve found the site to get you through all occasions with ease and beauty! Basic Invite offers customized invitations that will leave your guests in awe. Read on to see what makes this Utah based company so special and their products a cut above the competition.


Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows their customers to choose from an almost unlimited color palette. Even better? You get instant previews online so you can have live views of what your finished product will look like upon completion. Once you select a design, simply change the color of each element on the card to ensure every last detail is as you please. With over 180 different color options to choose from, this is a truly customized base. Did I mention that you can instantly see your color options and what they look like together at the click of a button? If you’re a visual person like I am, this is truly a unique feature that allows you to see the full package before placing your order. I loved this feature while experimenting with Basic Invite.


Basic Invite feels strongly that the the party should start right out of the mailbox. That is why they offer colorful envelopes that can match or coordinate your invites. All of their envelopes are peel and seal, so you can spend more time on the party planning and less on the licking and sticking. If you’re a mom mailing out hundreds of graduation thank you cards invites, get ready to share your thanks with beauty and ease!

Check out all of the extras at Basic Invites! For a fun metallic look, check out the FOIL OPTIONS. Foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver and rose gold, and come in flat or raised textures. You can also order matching gift tags to accompany your party needs.


In the technologically advanced world we live in, home addresses aren’t as readily available to most but social media handles are. The address capturing service provided by Basic Invite allows customers to simply share a link of the social media platform of their choice (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). By sharing your personalized link, you can request that friends and family members enter their mailing addresses. The information is then stored in the online customer account and can be selected during the design process. Also, Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.


One of my absolute favorite features of Basic Invite is their custom samples. Many online printing companies offer customers the ability to pay for their paper samples to be shipped. This allows customers to discern what the correct paper weight, color, and sheen to order. Basic Invite takes it one step further by allowing customers to order a printed sample of their ACTUAL INVITATION. This not only allows you to see exactly how it will be printed, but gives you a genuine sample of YOUR work. You can see the finished product for approval (and tweaking) before your guests.
