Holiday Cards – It’s Time to Order them Online NOW! {Giveaway}

Happy December First! How is it that the holidays sneak up on me every.single.year? Doesn’t it seem like the kids go back to school, Thanksgiving happens and then BLINK, it’s Christmas time already? I sure do. Next year, I will start my holiday cards in September and get them done EARLY! Good intentions, right?

I help my parents every year get their address labels in order. Last year, I kindly let my Mom know that I needed the information EARLY for this year. Thankfully, she remembered my request so that I could get everything done for her in plenty of time. While I help my parents, do you think I got myself organized? Seems like I need to take a note out of my Mom’s organization book.

Get organized and order your Holiday Cards NOW!
It’s not too late, at least in my world it isn’t.

Holiday Cards have never been easier!

Order your Christmas Cards now and get them sent out just in time. Photo cards are easy to create. Think back to your favourite memories from the year and find a photo that your friends and family will enjoy. Upload it to Basic Invite and you’re done in minutes.

Here are some perks to ordering your holiday cards with Basic Invite this year:

Almost Unlimited Colours

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 to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.

Custom Samples

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as feel the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order. I’m a visual person and for me, having a sample copy in my hands for my own two eyes to see is HUGE!

Over 40 Different Colours of Envelopes

Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations with over 40 different colours to choose from. This is a great way to make an invitation stand out. All envelopes are peel and seal, as a result providing you with a quick and secure closure without licking a single one.

Address Capturing Service

Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. It doesn’t get much easier than this!


Foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. I know if I were to leave it up to my daughter, rose gold would be the choice that our family would make this year!

With over 400 Christmas card and holiday card designs, I am sure that you will find a card that will capture your sentiments and share your greetings in a personalized, yet beautiful way.

Oh and one more thing…

Who doesn’t love a company that has a LOVE IT GUARANTEE?
Their motto is you’ll love it or they will make it right!
