Beautiful productReview by Katie
I used this layout as the base for my college graduation announcements. Not only did it look even better printed, but I had several people ask me how I did this. Shamelessly, I let them know that it was a pre-layout, but I was able to customize it the way I wanted to. Also, a little side note is that I accidentally set my shipping address as the United Kingdom instead of the United States. The easy access instant messaging lead me to an actual person on the other end who was there to help me. Not a lot of businesses have an actual human being as their customer service so that was another plus. Posted on 4/20/2018
Turned out beautiful!Review by Alison
My daughter had a fun time creating her own graduation announcement especially with the easy-to-use site! The announcements came tonus quickly and turned out beautifully. Posted on 4/19/2018
Absolutely Beautiful!Review by Diane
Thank you so much for an amazing graduation announcement! I loved the fact that we could use your design and add our own words to it. My daughter wanted a specific bible verse on her announcement and we could not find one anywhere to design ourselves. I saw an advertisement for your site on Pinterest and I could not be happier! Your service was quick, efficient, and beautiful! Posted on 4/17/2018

Excellent! Review by Gillian
My invites turned out great: everything appeared on the invites exactly the way it appeared to me when creating them. I also paid the ten extra dollars to have a Basic Invite employee look over my order before submitting it- totally worth it! So helpful and incredibly fast. My invites were on my doorstep a week before their expected arrival date!
Will definitely use Basic Invite in the future! Posted on 5/11/2016

MY PURCHASEReview by Rhonda
I ordered a sample and glad I did. This is the second time this has happened while ordering through you. The image displayed on the screen is darker and more legible than the real product. Last time I ordered, someone notified me of this so they said they would darken it up. So I ordered 100 invites only to find that they still weren't legible. The ink did not stand out against the background but, like I said before, did so on the computer. Otherwise, I love your product. The quality is great. This is not a complaint per se but hopefully some constructive criticism to help you improve your product. Thank you. Posted on 3/10/2016
AverageReview by Ria
I thought the product was fine. It did limit you on design which in turn did not allow for the overall WOW experience. It was easy to use. I thought shipping was fairly long. Posted on 5/18/2015
