Friday Favorites: Basic Invite

Last year about this time, I was helping host a baby shower for my sister, Sarah, who was welcoming her baby girl, Ivy, into the world. I was in charge of the invitations, which is fine because I know my way around Photoshop. But, I soon realized designing the invitations myself was a bit of a time-suck and I wished there was a web site where I could order something cute, modern and affordable that would be sent right to me, envelopes and all.

Enter Basic Invite!

invitations, printables, stationery, baby shower invites

This site has it ALL. Not only are their templates beautiful, but you can customize the color of any element to your liking! With over 180 color options to choose from, you can't go wrong with the design of your invitation or announcement. This is HUGE for me as I have very particular tastes and sometimes, though I might adore a specific template, I might not be crazy about the default color scheme. Problem solved!

Speaking of colors, Basic Invite also offers 40 different colors of envelopes you can choose from! Say, what?! I don't know about you, but when I get a bright aqua or coral pink envelope in the mail, I'm super-excited to see what's inside. Plus, these envelopes are peel-and-seal, so you don't have to lick any disgusting adhesive. And you know it's going to stay shut!

Also, if you're skeptical of your computer monitor and want to know exactly how your invites will turn out, you can order a sample. No need to doubt how the finished product will look when you can see for yourself ahead of time! By the way, Basic Invite is one of few online stationery companies to offer this service.

The last (and probably coolest) feature of Basic Invite I want to mention is their free address collection service! Request your addresses with just three simple steps -- share a link with your recipients, collect their addresses, and get free envelope printing, too. Nice!

Ok, check out some of these adorable customized baby shower invitations. Sure would've come in handy for me last year! Remember, you can change the color of any element, as you can see in this screenshot:

If you want to keep the invitation gender-specific, you can search the templates for baby boy shower invites or girl shower invites. Save you the hassle of having to sort through yourself! I absolutely adore these.

And you'll definitely want to check out the luxury birth announcements for when Baby makes his or her debut! Stunning!

Of course, a year later, you'll be needing those 1st birthday invites for Baby's 1-Year Bash! Some of those are just too cute for words -- check them out for yourself! And on that note, I can't believe my sweet niece Ivy already turned 1 this week. Where does the time go?!

Hurry on over to Basic Invite to see the rest of their beautiful designs. Use code '15FF51' to save 15% on your order!

  1. Well, these are darling! I do NOT know my way around Photoshop and LOVE the idea of using customizable templates for, well, everything. :)



I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
