Not So Basic Invite!

Say hello to my new business cards!  I established my small business, One Vintage Soul on Etsy in 2012, and I absolutely love being a part of the shop small community!  Since my business is primarily online, I never thought it was necessary to have my own business cards.  However, I am learning that a business card can be just as important as my website. When attending meetings, interviews, or any social events, carrying business cards can make all the difference in making a memorable first impression.  When Basic Invite reached out to work with me, I thought it was the perfect time to create a brand new set of business cards I could proudly pass along to make a real impact on future clients.

After visiting Basic Invite's website, I was thrilled to discover all of the design options to choose from.  I love how I am truly able to customize nearly every design element.  Their site is extremely easy to navigate, making the process simple enough for me to design a business card as unique as my small business.  There are several design templates, fonts, and hundreds of colors to choose from.  I would say the only challenging task is choosing just one design!  

I decided to order a sample of the Watercolor Hello Business Cards.  I was drawn to the warm and inviting design as it features the word "hello" in a watercolor circle on the front of the cards. I was able to choose a color for the circle from their palette of more than 160 custom colors. I picked the color "Coastal" since I absolutely love the ocean!  

On the back of this design is my name, title and contact information. I decided to finish the look by choosing the Gold Foil option for my name.  When I received my samples in the mail, I simply fell in love with how they turned out!  

I chose their signature matte paper and the samples were printed beautifully!  The actual cards looked identical to the online proofs.  This was exactly what I was looking for!  I love that I can see and feel the premium quality of the product before purchasing.  I would never want to be stuck with 200 business cards that I wasn't completely happy with.  Receiving a sample from Basic Invite is such a wonderful feature because now I feel 100% confident in placing my final order without any hesitation!

Be sure to head over to Basic Invite on Instagram for more design inspiration!
Almost Unlimited Colors - Basic Invite is one of the few websites that offers nearly unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 different color options, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it! This is what sets Basic Invite apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what I feel is their biggest draw.
Custom Samples - This is probably my favorite feature, as you will have the ability to order a printed sample of their actual product so you can see exactly how it will print, as well as the paper quality before placing your final order.
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes - Basic Invite is just as colorful with envelopes as they are with their invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes, making your invitations stand out even before it is opened. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.
Address Capturing Service - They also offer an address capturing service that will allow you to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media. You will be able to request all of the mailing addresses from your friends and family, and Basic Invite can even print the addresses on your envelopes at no cost on all Christmas card orders!
Foil - Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. You can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. I think the foil detailing adds a high-quality touch to your business cards or company logo.
