Holiday Cheer with Basic Invites

For the last 7 years, I have been sending our Annual Christmas Card to our family, friends, clients and colleagues. I get so much JOY from choosing a new card design and photo each holiday season. This year will be our Son’s 1st Christmas and I cant’ wait to send out our first holiday card as a family of FOUR! I literally feels like yesterday I was pregnant with him and getting ready for the holidays, unsure if he was going to surprise us with an early delivery!

Basic Invite makes designing, ordering and sending your holiday cards so easy! To begin with, Basic Invite allows you to customize the entire design process, from the color & style of font, envelopes and image location. They offer unlimited colors, custom sample and over 40 types of envelopes.

This year was my 1st year using Basic Invite to design & send my holiday cards.  I’m so happy I made the switch. Basic Invite made collecting new addresses so easy via a customized link I could simply text or email my friends and family. Now, all my addresses are stored on my account. Basic Invite also offers address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders!

This year we took holiday photos with Carly Landolt Photography at Longwood Gardens. We had so many favorite shots we decided to do a collage layout on the back of our holiday card. We also choose the white envelope with a gold liner to match the foil on our card. Our holiday cards came turned out so elegant and beautiful!  We’ve already received so many compliments!

 

Happy Holidays, and thank you Basic Invite for allowing us to send some holiday cheer this season with your stationary!

Another holiday tip: save each year’s holiday card and put them into a 5×7 photo album. You can pack it away with your holiday decor and add to it every year!

Happy Holidays 2017

I am so proud of myself for ordering + mailing our holiday cards on time this year! I literally just got home from the post office! My daughter loved helping me with the stamps, and dropping our cards into the mailbox. With a baby on its way, I been trying to stay organized, and checking off my to-do list (thank you Bloom planning pads)! Every year we order our holiday cards from Minted.com! They have the best selections, and their quality is second to none. My favorite designs are the Foil Pressed. I always end up choosing a design with a little sparkle. Another reason I always order from Minted.com is their free custom envelopes, and recipient addressing! It makes sending holiday cards year after year, so easy!
