Why You Should Check Out Basic Invite

**I was sent samples of cards in return for a review on my blog. My opinions are my own.**

I still send handwritten letters and cards.

My kids do as well. If someone takes the time to mail them a gift, they send a thank you card to that person.

I know I'm always thrilled when I get a letter. It's something that should never stop. My Nana Jo lives ten minutes away now and I still send her cards. It's something easy to do to brighten up someone's day.

I'm glad there are websites like Basic Invite, which has a ton of cards to choose from. I was able to try them out, and I'm glad I did. Here are reasons why you should too:

1. They have almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. You can change the colors on any card. If you don't like the color of a font, pick another! I was really impressed with the vibrant colors:

2. You can get custom samples. For example, if you want to be sure the invitation is perfect, you can have one made up and sent to you before ordering a ton more. I was sent a bunch of different samples:

3. There are so many different card options to choose from. You can do baby shower invitations, birth announcements, baby's first birthday announcements, and bar/bat mitzvah invitations. And those are just SOME of what you can do. I personally loved the thank you cards since we send them out often:

4. They are easy to purchase. Seriously, changing the font and colors and adding photos was simple:

5. The graduation cards are fabulous. My son will be graduating in four years (sobs!) and I plan on sending something like this out when he does:

6. You can pick colored envelopes if you don't want to stick with white. Have your mail stand out!

7. The cards are well-made. They don't look cheap. They aren't flimsy. I would be pleased to send these out to people:

Do you still send cards?

  1. I love handwritten cards! I also love the choices and customization that Basic Invite offers! That mustache card is too cute!

  2. I am obsessed with cards. Anytime a family or friend has a special occasion I'm on it stat with the card! Haha.
    Thank you thank you thank you for sharing this!! No blank cards at the store are worth buying. The cute ones are always sold by the piece. The ones with multiples in a pack are always blahhh.
    If I had more people to write I would!

  3. I'm always looking for cards to send out!

  4. I am obsessed with sending cards!!!

  5. I love sending proper cards out - and receiving them!! Ooh, I have an idea... If you're up for it... Send me your address and I'll mail you a card from Singers... xx

  6. I don't. :( I should. It's so much more personal and it's always nice to receive something handwritten in the mail. These are great!
