Light the Lantern CardsReview by Orlando
The cards were done very professionally and we have received many compliments on the design. We are very happy to have selected Basic Invite to make our cards. Posted on 12/29/2018
Simple to use with lots of options!Review by Anne
This was a sample and it was true to the coloring etc on-line.
It did allow me to tweak a few things, font size and style for instance,
which was good. I have now ordered all the save the dates and intend to
order the invitations in due course. Posted on 7/7/2018
