You’ve got the guy, selected a venue, set a date and now it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty. Choosing stationery is an exciting process but it can quickly become a daunting task. Save the dates are most likely the first piece of your wedding that your guests will see, so they should set the tone for the rest of the festivities. Once you’ve nailed the save the dates, it’s on to the formal invitation. But selecting the perfect set that matches the colors, theme, formality and style of your big day can be a lot trickier than you ever thought (trust us, we’ve been there!)
With the spike in online retail, we have the luxury of browsing, experimenting and purchasing wedding items, like stationery online. There is one online retailer that stands out when it comes to wedding stationery and that is Basic Invite! There are 6 main reasons why we think Basic Invite takes the cake in the online stationery game.
1: They offer Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that gives you 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 smallest detail. Trust us when we say that you won’t find this level of color service anywhere else!
2: Custom Samples – OK, let’s be honest here, when we first heard of ordering stationery online we started to sweat. What if the paper is too thin, what if the color isn’t right or the pattern looks different in person what if, what if, what if! Well thank goodness, Basic Invite already has all the “what if’s” covered! They are one of the few websites that allow you to order a printed sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever place a final order.
3: Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – So you’ve already heard they offer TONS of color options for the stationery, but what about the finishing touches and making sure your invites make a grand entrance even before they are opened. Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors! And here’s a little bonus…all envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. (you don’t want to be lickin’ and stickin’ 200 envelopes, once again, trust us, we’ve been there!)
4: Over 200 Wedding Invitation Sets – Each of Basic Invite’s wedding invitations is part of a set. You can find everything from amazing save the dates to unique wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs, place cards and even matching thank you cards! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
5: They offer a free Address Collection Service – You can utilize their free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. As a bride you have enough on your plate, so we are big fans of companies who go the extra mile to make your life a little easier.
6: They have amazing Keepsake Guest Books – These personalized wedding guest books are the perfect addition to your wedding day stationery. Their guest books have a ring hidden inside, which allows them to lay perfectly flat for a classy and convenient look. With sophisticated designer pages, it’s the perfect opportunity for your weddings guest to leave sweet words and well wishes.
