As many of you know, I’m launching my business in the Fall (Autumn for my Aussies and Brits). My friend Sue suggested that we have a launch party, which suddenly made the whole thing feel totally legit. I’m so into the idea that sometimes, instead of working on my CRM and MOQs, I’m daydreaming about cocktail lists with names like the “Zero-waste Zoolander” and “Biodegradable Betty”.

For the invitations I’m going all out. No texts, no Evites, but real “Put This On Your Fridge” paper invitations.

The wonderful folks at Basic Invite reached out to me recently and I’m so glad they did. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that offer a completely customizable paper invitation, from their almost unlimited color options to their amazing instant online previews.

Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card, and with over 180 different color options, you can be sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what sets Basic Invite apart from almost every other online stationery company.

For really important events, like weddings (or perhaps a very swanky eCommerce business launch party) you can order a printed sample of the actual invitation you’ve created, so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you place your final order. You can also choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to envelopes so you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened.

Another thing I LOVE is Basic Invite’s address capturing service. You just share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request friends and family’s addresses which are stored in your account and then selected during the design process.

Graduation season is upon us, and Basic Invite is currently featuring graduation announcements, invitations, and thank you cards.
