Chic and stylish cards for all occasions from Basic Invite

Cards have always been something I struggle with - birthdays, anniversaries, and especially weddings and graduations. I like stylish cards, chic, with a certain 'something' but I can rarely find anything that reflects me but also is right for the recipient. But now my search is over thanks to Basic Invite where you can get cards and invitations for all occasions.

graduation cards, invitations, and thank you cards from Basic Invite.

When I visited the Basic Invite website I fell in love with their cards instantly. The website is functional and stylish and their cards are so 'me'. I adore them. So I did a little more research because, let's face it, once you find somewhere that does beautiful cards you need to know what restrictions you're going to end up facing right?


Sometimes you can find the perfect card but it's in the wrong colour, unfortunately a lot of the time you can't change that and you just have to find a different card, but with Basic Invite you can change the colour of the card if you want!

Say you find the perfect Wedding Invitation but it just doesn't fit in with your wedding colours - simply change it! With a choice of over 180 colours I have no doubt there's the colour combo you're looking for.

The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don't celebrate those, they can pass you by.

Coloured envelopes

Not only can you get fabulous colours for your invitations and cards but you can get coloured envelopes too! Choose from over 40 different colours, so there's no need to stick to boring old white. And another great thing about the envelopes is they're "peel and seal" so no need to lick (ugh!) the envelopes and you know they'll be securely closed.

Custom samples

If you've ever tried ordering cards and invitations before you'll know it can be a pain getting to see what it actually looks like before ordering. At Basic Invite you can order a sample of your card so you can see what it will look like when it's printed - great huh?


Foil cards can look amazing, and when you can choose between gold, silver, or rose gold it's a winner right? You also have a choice of raised or flat foil on all of the Basic Invite foil designs.

I am seriously considering buying all the cards I might ever need, while I can!

Being able to go online and design your invitations, then have a sample sent to you, and be able to get exactly what you want, colours and all, without having to go out to a shop is brilliant. I'm even starting to think about future events like when the boys graduate. I could create custom graduation party invitations for them and they'd make an impact just as much as a party would!

Announcing a graduation is awesome too with these fabulous grad cards, I love how many different designs there are and the colour schemes can be changed too so it's never just for girls or boys. And of course then there's the thank you cards for graduation money which you absolutely have to have. I want them and I don't even have a graduate in the house yet (still a few years to go!).

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.

I know I've spoken a lot about weddings and graduations in this post but that's not all Basic Invite do. On their website you can find cards for birth announcements, sweet 16 birthdays, invitations to showers (baby shower, etc) and parties. The designs are so chic, so stylish, and so me that I'll be keeping them in mind for all future card and invitation purchases. I may even have to buy some business stationery just in case I need it.

Oh and if you're in the market for buying some cards or invitations right now Basic Invite have a discount for you! Right now they're offering 15% off with coupon code 15FF51.
