If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that there are three universal truths about me:
- I’m in a love/hate relationship with my cat
- I’m a Scorpio-Slytherin
- I’m obsessed with all things planner/stationery/pens/sticker related
I’ve spoken of my love of Erin Condren MANY times (especially on Instagram), but my love extends far beyond notebooks and planners. Sending personal invites and cards and thank you notes is such an under-appreciated art these days, and I don’t know why. People love getting real mail! So when Basic Invite reached out to me about doing a review, I jumped at the chance to work with them.
The biggest thing I look for when it comes to printables (especially invites) is options. Can I make it look how I want? Are there envelopes to match my design? Can I change the invite shape/size? Are there pre-made designs available for me to work from if I’m feeling uninspired? Basic Invites delivers on all of this and MORE. They have every style imaginable; formal party invitations, fun and funky vintage birthday invitations, and completely custom birthday invitations. The sky is the limit!

So what did I order?
Like I said above, I love sending personal cards and notes. Next month, I’ll start preparing for my yearly customer appreciation gifts, and I wanted a cute but professional custom card to send. The Professional Portrait Business Stationery was just what I wanted! I was able to select the exact color to match my logo and upload the perfect pic of me for the card. The pre-selected fonts were exactly what I wanted and I loved that I could choose rounded corners. The envelopes are peel and stick (no paper cuts on my tongue!!) and the pre-printed address is so damn classy.
I can’t wait for Christmas this year because I know that my cards will be ON POINT thanks to Basic Invite! If you want to check them out, you can get 15% off RIGHT NOW – just use the code 15FF51.
