Perfect!Review by Laurie
These save the date cards for my daughter’s barn wedding turned out perfect! Everything was so easy to customize, and there are so many colors for the card itself as well as the fonts, etc. I had them shipped to my daughter and they arrived so quickly, earlier than originally stated.

Pretty cardsReview by Judy
Cute design, accurate printing, fast service and good price. My only disappointment was that the colors appear more faded and washed-out looking than expected. Probably due to the matte paper. Looked great online, so consider increasing the color saturation if you order this design on matte paper. Posted on 2/28/2019
Really nice Review by Amy
I love this one. The shimmer is amazing. Just enough so it’s not flat, but not a shiny glittery mess. Posted on 2/20/2019
Basic Invite is SO HELPFUL!Review by Melissa
We ordered these save the dates for our rehearsal dinner after party. They were beautiful, but as it turns out, we had forgotten one piece of info we really wanted on there. Basic Invite to the rescue! After we updated the draft, they rush-printed & shipped our order so we lost basically no turnaround time. Also, since it was a reprint, they were willing to discount the price even more so we were beyond happy. I've never had service like this, but would recommend them to any other brides and will use them for all events/announcements in the future! Posted on 11/1/2018
This website and Product are the BEST!!!Review by Paula
The products are unbelievable, the quality of the paper is wonderful, nice and thick and I couldn't be more Happy with the service!!! I get 15% off of my save the dates but then I got an email saying I could have 20% off so i.e. Mailed one of the representatives and they actually fixed my order and I got the 20% unbelievable this is the best website and product I have ever dealt with!!

Great Customizable ProductReview by Rachel
It's a wonderful quality product that is totally customizable. I'm guessing because of this, the price is a little higher than other cards. Posted on 12/23/2015

Great product, service and delivery.Review by Karen
Love the Mason Jar Save The Date cards. The process was easy, and my cards are beautiful. I am the mother of the bride and my daughter said "OMG I love, love, love, these".
That's good enough for me.
I tried a few other diy websites for the cards, nothing compared with Basic Invite.

Outstanding Review by Carey
It was very easy!!! Posted on 5/13/2015
Fantastic, will order again...Review by Jeri
I am very happy with my "Save The Date" cards. They were very accommodating, when I had a question about the "font" and so forth. I was very pleased. I received the cards in no time. I would order them again. By the way I got the "Shimmer" overlay on my cards and I love it. It gives it a Special Look. The "Save The Date" cards are also my "Invitation". This is my second marriage and I am not having anything big. This is the right touch I wanted. Thank You..

great save the date cardsReview by Madelyn
We received our save the dates on the date the was specified. They look great, just as they did online when we designed them. Very happy with them. We even got 5 extra but did not have extra envelopes. Posted on 1/21/2015
Pretty!Review by Caitlin
Loved the look of the card, and the ease of designing online. My free sample shipped quickly and did not disappoint. It was nice to see it in person before committing to ordering. Highly recommend! Posted on 1/20/2015
Loved them! Review by ashley
First of all, they are so cute and will go well with our outdoor wedding. Secondly, they were delivered right away, which was nice because our wedding is only 6 months away. We were very happy with how they turned out. The only thing I would change is how much they cost. It was worth the money, but they were kind of pricey. Luckily, we saved 20% with a sale they offered! Thank you!! Posted on 1/13/2015
Great!Review by Jasmine
