great product, great price, fast deliveryReview by Lorraine
I ordered the suede feel paper.. used full color photos and in minutes had created a fun beautiful graduation announcement. It would probably be worth it to splurge on envelope liners for a really nice look. This is my second order from Basic Invite.. Posted on 5/9/2018
