Quick service, reasonable price, decent quality/designReview by Christobel
I tried Basic Invite out for the first time and used a promotion code. I was late getting my cards done and needed something fast. The price was reasonable, and they printed my cards quickly/rush shipped them (for a fee). Overall I liked the design of the card, especially the front, but I wasn’t blown away by the design/ style. I felt like the default fonts for the text on the back and for the return address printing were basic/ amateur looking and not particularly stylish. Card paper quality was ok not quite as nice/ thick as I hoped it would be. And there was no option to edit/ improve the photo lighting/ color once you uploaded it to the site. So I was disappointed by the way the picture on the back turned out... Posted on 1/1/2019
WOW!Review by Pamela
Very impressed with my 2018 Christmas cards! I had not sent cards in years and decided at the last minute to send some since we had an early season snow that made for a beautiful photo. The turnaround time on my sample card and then the full order was very fast. Great customer service, quality cardstock, beautiful colors in the photo, flexibility in design, addressed envelopes, and on sale...I couldn't ask for anything more! Posted on 12/16/2018
Great Christmas CardsReview by Caitlyn
I ordered 60 of these cards to give to family members and friends around the Holidays. The picture quality was great! I really like the cardstock. It's very easy to write a personalized message on the back. They also sent a couple extra envelope and cards, perfect for when I inevitably mess up on one. Posted on 12/5/2016

Beautiful card but took forever to arrive!Review by Whitney
I had some trouble getting my photo to upload correctly to this card but Basicinvite's great customer service reps had the issue resolved within 24 hours. I ordered the card on 11/8/12 and didn't receive it 3+ weeks, so that was a little frustrating, but as long as you plan ahead I would definitely recommend this product! Posted on 12/5/2012
