Great Sample!Review by Tiffany Williams
I loved being able to get a sample of my wedding invitations at such an affordable price. This service enabled me to be able to see the final result printed out and in my hands for peace of mind about the product. Great product! Posted on 4/19/2017
Above and beyond Review by Nellie
This product was reasonably priced, easy to customize as well. They look great when they are printed. The customer service was above and beyound. There was a misspelled word on the invitations, basic invite didn't just fix it and reprint them with no charge, I received the new ones in 3 days! Posted on 1/21/2017

classic yet cute Review by Molly
We are so pleased with the traditionally formal invitation suite! It is classic yet cute. We used granite, pewter, and lust colors--they are each crisp and beautiful and look great together. The design is simple but has just the right amount of fun! Assembly in the pocket folder was quick & easy with double-sided tape. Posted on 11/3/2015
Excellent ProductReview by Andrew
The invitations were exactly as designed. The design and ordering website was easy to use and provided maximal design flexibility. The vast array of design choices is amazing. The colors and materials were exactly as described. The customer service staff intervened quickly when they detected an error. This was a great way to do invitations and this site is highly recommended. Posted on 9/16/2015

ExcellentReview by Jessica
I ordered my wedding invitations/response card/and direction card and they were great. Brock, the man I worked with, was outstanding. He answered my questions quickly and provided good ideas when I was uncertain. Best of all, my order was in my hands in less than a week! Thank you so much. Posted on 9/2/2014
Great service!Review by Heather
I really struggled with not only which invitations to choose, but where to purchase them from. I was very pleased with our experience with Basic Invite. The customer service was excellent, from the live online chat to the designer who worked directly with us. Additionally, our invitations looked exactly how we hoped they would, and they arrived so quickly! Posted on 9/2/2014
Excellent!Review by Heather
Our invites were absolutely perfect! I thought it was going to be a stressful process to get them all ordered and Basic Invite made everything very simple! The designer was great and very helpful. Made all of the changes I requested and continued to email me proofs. I would HIGHLY recommend this company! Posted on 9/2/2014

Nice productReview by Debra C
I paid for extra help to make sure wording and colors were correct. I was helped by phone and email, got help on the wording and am very happy. I couldn't decide between cranberry and Tuscany for the stripe. I asked the representative which color was closest to burgundy and she suggested tuscany. When they came I feel Tuscany is NOT burgundy and lends itself to brown . I should have chosen the cranberry . The invitations are lovely none the less.

Tuscany and Cranberry are very close to one another and both could be considered burgundy. We recommend all customers order a <a href="">FREE color guide</a>, as colors appear differently on screen than in print. Your <a href="">free color guide</a> will arrive in under a week and when our customers choose their colors from this free guide, they are sure to be happy with their colors and know exactly what they are ordering. This is no different from ordering anything else color sensitive online, dresses, ties, etc. Posted on 9/2/2014
Great!Review by CP
Overall the invitations are of very good quality. They look beautiful. You can design everything of it like colors, format, fonts, size, and much more. I paid for for express shipping but received it earlier. The only thing I can complain is that, I needed words in spanish with accents, and I had to pay for an assistant extra. That is the only thing I did not like, I think is a rip off. But other than that, the invitations turned out beautiful, just as I designed them. Posted on 9/2/2014
ExcellentReview by Heather
I am very pleased with how these invitations turned out. The only advice I would give is to order the color samples, as the colors on my invitation were slightly different than expected, however still satisfactory. And since we had a time crunch, I was very happy with how they turned out. The quality of the paper is very good and the staff was very helpful and friendly. There was even a mix up on some of the wording and they were very prompt to fix that and get the new proof sent out. And the design itself is very classic and exactly what I was hoping for. I am a very satisfied customer! Posted on 9/2/2014

Order color guide!Review by Tori
My order came quickly. Customer service was great! In fact I was initially shipped an order in the wrong color. Make sure you get the free color guide! Because I had one, the issue was resolved with no problem. Everyone was so nice and immediately took care of the problem with no hassle. I will admit I was expecting the invitations to be of greater quality but overall I am satisfied. Posted on 9/2/2014
So/soReview by Jo
I was disappointed with the quality of the invitation and envelope. Very plain. However, the customer service during the order process was very helpful!

Customization heavenReview by Kim
I looked at many, many websites trying to find an invitation for a baby shower for my daughter that would represent her contemporary style and the nursery colors without the typical "cute-zie" pictures and drawings. Finally realized I needed to look at business invitations or wedding invitations. That search got me to the contemporary style without the fru-fru but not the right colors. BINGO!!! Found basic and could get it all.....the right style in the right colors. I used a wedding invitation and customized it for a couples baby shower. It turned out just as I had planned it online right down to the colors. Great experience!!! Thank you! Posted on 9/2/2014
Front of invite looks great, price is great, fast serviceReview by Terri
Front of invitation looks great, colors were very close to those shown on computer screen. A little disappointed that the back of the invitation was not the same color as the background of the front, otherwise, quality is good for the price. Fast service/shipping! Posted on 9/2/2014
Invitations turned out perfect!Review by Deana

Great Choice is you want simpleReview by Kristin
Being able to customize the invitation online so I knew what it looked like before I ordered was great. If you want a high end invitation then maybe this one isn't for you, but it is exactly what I was looking for in style, quality and price. The invitation is simple, but it is exactly what I wanted!

So ImpressedReview by Danielle
Thank you Basic Invite! I ordered these invitations last week and I received them so quickly! I loved how I was able to customize the top bar into a monogram. My invites arrived just as I had ordered them! As I was counting and checking the appearance of each invite, I found just a few with imperfections and I set them off to the side. As I got to the end of the pile I discovered that there were a few extra printed :) thanks for making this part of wedding planning so easy and stress free! Will definitely recommend you guys to my friends and family!!! Posted on 9/2/2014
