Best products I've foundReview by Emily

Basic invite has been so great! So easy to customize! We're not having a trendy wedding, and it was hard to find the look I wanted with other invitation websites. BI was the best find! I love how easy everything is to customize! I was worried when we ordered samples that it wouldn't look as professional as I wanted: but I had absolutely no need to worry! These are great quality, and they came quickly! So happy with our Save The Dates! Can't wait to order our invites, programs, and thank you notes! (Posted on 7/18/2016)
Save the Date cardsReview by Meghan

Having not used this site before I was a little wary of what the quality may be for the price. However, my Save the Date cards turned out just as I'd hoped. They fit perfectly into the envelopes, nothing in the box was damaged or bent, even though the shipping box was a little banged up. They showed up a few days earlier than the estimate, which I really appreciated since I was so far behind on things. Having the adhesive strip on the envelopes was such a lifesaver. The glue is VERY sticky though, so make sure everything you need is in the envelope before sealing, because it's not opening back up! (Posted on 4/21/2016)

Thank you to Olivia for checking to see if the wedding website worked prior to printing the Save the Dates. We haven't published the site yet (still working on it!) but it will be working in the next week. She really went above and beyond! (Posted on 3/23/2016)

I designed a simple Save the Date, and requested a sample from Basic Invite. When the sample arrived, I was so pleased with the results. i will definitely be purchasing my save the dates through Basic Invite. (Posted on 3/18/2016)
I don't know why I was worriedReview by Russell

I don't really know what to say, everything came out perfectly. The thickness of the postcard was great, the rounded corners were a nice touch that people didn't expect, the design looked as good (if not better) than it did on my computer screen...

The entire process was super easy and the cost was far less than I would have expected. My company has used other printing companies in the past for a variety of things, from simple mailers to folders for conferences. I have seen my fair share of bad print jobs, so I was a little worried because everything went smoothly and was so inexpensive.

When I opened up the package, I saw that my fears were misplaced and I was so happy. My fiancee was beyond impressed and our friends & family have had nothing but great things to say.

We're about to start designing the invitations and we'll definitely be starting here. (Posted on 1/29/2016)

Really lovely! I'm very happy with how it came out and the printing is gorgeous. I did have an odd problem with my cards being cut down to the improper size though. The finished product was supposed to be 5.5" x 4.25" but when measured out, my cards were 5.75" x 4.5" so they didn't fit in the A2 envelopes. I didn't have enough time for replacements and I'm pretty confident with a blade and straightedge, so I cut them down myself. I'm not sure if this was just a problem because it was the "Upload Your Own" option and the image I uploaded was a little big larger than the intended finished product to account for bleed (although the directions do ask for that). Not terribly inconvenient for me since I love how they came out.

Regardless, I love them! I also love the fact that they come with a few extra just in case. Thanks! (Posted on 7/24/2015)
