Creating the Perfect Holiday Cards & Party Invites

Creating the Perfect Holiday Cards & Party Invites

Halloween is behind us now. It is time to start thinking about holiday parties and our holiday cards. Thanks to Basic Invite for allowing me to create some super great Holiday Party Invites and Holiday Cards on their site and share them with you. Thankfully we  have a picture of our family that I already want to use for our card. Getting the right photo is the hardest part when it comes to Creating your Holiday Cards on Basic Invite. We will show you just how easy and how much customization Basic Invites allows, when creating your custom holiday creations.

All of Basic Invites Cards holiday cards are greeting cards but because they can be customized you can change just about every aspect of the card including wording, font, add text boxes and colors. I turned this basic greeting card into a Cookie Exchange Invitation in just minutes.

Look at all the options you have for the back of the card design.

I love how my holiday invite turned out and all the options really makes it your own. How often do you see your card designs with another family’s picture on it? If you take advantage of all the customization options on Basic Invite, you won’t be seeing a similar card come into your mailbox.


Almost Unlimited Colors – 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 the paper quality before they ever have to place an order for 500 invitations. I used this service and it was well worth knowing the quality of the product. 


Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without licking a single one.

I came upon an issue where I could not change the text and took advantage of the online help. Within minutes the developers changed the card so I could edit it. Customer service was great.

The card stock is very thick and the envelopes are not transparent. You do have to add the colored liner into the envelope but get the kids to help you with this. I am thrilled by the way my holiday cards came out and be on the look out for great discounts. When I made my cards, holiday cards were 30% off.
