This is a sponsored post, but all photos and opinions are my own.
Hi there!
I know all of us moms are always looking to get our holiday cards online super quickly but also want them to look great. I tend to be SO last minute and end up printing my cards at a local drug store. This year I SWEAR I'm going to be proactive and think ahead! I SWEAR!!! LOL
I mean, I go through all the trouble to arrange holiday photos every year and then get them printed on some flimsy photo paper. It's not cute at all! So I heard about Basic Invite and tried it out. Because they let you get SAMPLES!!!
How cute are these cards???

I just tested out a few photos I loved to see how they might look on a holiday cards. I tried Christmas and Valentine's Day cards. Right now, they are having a Christmas in July sale! So, I know it's August. But, as usually, I'm late LOL! Use the code HOLI30 for 30% off your order! They don't have to be Christmas cards - the code is valid site-wide! So if you have a birthday or shower coming up, get to ordering!!!
This card showed all the color options on both sides
What I thought was really cool about Basic Invite is that even though you are working from templates, you can still customize!  Like I design, but aren't crazy about the color scheme? CHANGE IT! There are over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want.
Like I said, Basic Invite allows you to order a sample of their actual invitation, printed on quality paper, so you can see how it will look before you place a final order. I found this helpful, because as you can see on this card, there is a spacing issue. I didn't notice it when I designed it online. But, if this was the card I wanted to send to all my friends, I have a chance to go back and correct this issue before paying for 100 cards and having to send them out with this imperfection. 
I got my samples in about a week, which is cool. I think they came out so nicely!!!
And they offer over 40 different Colors of envelopes! I didn't take advantage of this, but it's fun to know it's an option! I also love that all of the envelopes are peel and seal so I don't have to lick anything LOL!
And, this I think is awesome - you can share a link to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request friends and family’s addresses. They will be stored in your account and added to the envelopes when you order! For Christmas cards there is no extra charge for this service, which is amazing!

One issue I had with the site was that it took a while for my photos to load in order to design the cards. I'm not sure if that's normal though. I was in a hotel using their free wi-fi when I ordered these samples, so that could have been the issue with the upload. But, once the photos were uploaded, design was a piece of cake.

Overall, I'm really impressed with my samples and plan to use Basic Invite for my holiday cards this year! I really like the variety of cards and all of the customization is awesome! I don't have to worry I can't find a card I like that doesn't clash with our wardrobe choices or just my general taste - I can change anything I don't like!

And don't forget their 30% off sale, using the code HOLI30!

Let me know what you think of the cards! And if you have any questions, just ask :) 

Until next time!
