Save the Date's Turned Out Perfect!Review by Maya
These cards were printed and shipped within two weeks of me ordering them, I was surprised when they came so early! They are awesome quality and the gloss finish kept the color of our photos beautifully. I highly recommend! Posted on 1/16/2019
Exactly what I wanted!Review by Caitlin
I had done a lot of research before choosing my save the dates. I love that these were simple, yet clearly showed the picture and that I had the opportunity to put an additional picture and clear information on the back! I hadn't found that option on any other site without paying a lot more money. When they arrived, they were exactly as I had hoped. The addressing feature was also so helpful! We were able to get them in the mail the day they arrived thanks to that. Posted on 12/19/2018
Save the DatesReview by Monique
I was able to customize my save the dates to exactly what I wanted. I paid the extra fee to have it overlook again to make sure everything was perfect and it definitely was worth it. It was so affordable as we checked many sites before deciding to use basis invites. We will be using for our programs and invitations. Posted on 11/21/2018

Absolutely loved our save the dates!! Review by Brittany
The review process was very quick and the designers adjusted our images to make them optimal and centered. Printing and shipping was so fast and the cards arrrived a week earlier then expected!! Our save the dates turned out perfect and we have received so many compliments, from the free address printing, to the quality of the card itself!! Posted on 7/11/2018
Perfect for my save the date!Review by Erin
This was such an easy process and I couldn’t be happier with the end result! I was a little hesitant because the size was a little smaller than what I saw on other sites but I got a free sample of my design and it totally helped me make my decision! I tweaked things slightly after I got the sample and got just what I wanted when the order arrived! I just sent them out and am already getting texts about how cute they turned out! Definitely recommend for this quality at this price point! Posted on 6/28/2018

Fantastic Card at a Fantastic Price!Review by Amanda
Not only was "designing" the card very easy, but the price couldn't be beat! We especially loved the added bonus (for no additional cost) of typed envelopes and adhesive flaps (no cramped hands or dry tongues!). The price was perfect, and we got a unique card that let us showcase our favorite engagement pictures. Many family and friends have reached out, impressed with both the quality and design. We also appreciated the personalized email from Basic Invite when we ordered the initial proof, and thought that was a unique and personal touch. We'll begin our wedding invitations soon and can't wait to begin that process. Thanks, Basic Invite! Posted on 2/15/2018
Absolutely perfect! Review by Taylor
My fiancé and I just received our save the dates and we absolutely love them! We had ordered 4 samples before ordering because we couldn’t decide on a picture and the final product was even more amazing than the sample!! The service we received was incredible, the production and shipping was EXTREMELY fast, and the product was INCREDIBLE! I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! We will definitely be getting our invitations from here as well! Posted on 2/12/2018

Great product!Review by Amanda
I loved these Save The Dates. Basic Invite is significantly cheaper than other options, while maintaining a quality product. Even without paying for upgraded paper, the free option has a great matte finish.

My one wish is that you could print return addresses on the envelopes even without guest addresses for free. Posted on 1/10/2018

Fantastic experience, would highly recommend Review by Sarah
Our save-the-dates turned out great and the pre addressed envelopes were so convenient! they even sent a few extra which I'm grateful for because I needed them! If you order more than the number of addresses you provide, those come blank, but with your return address. Oh I also loved that the envelopes were the peel kind! Posted on 8/31/2017

Our save-the-dates turned out perfectly. They looked just as we ordered them and arrived quicker than expected. We definitely plan to use Basic Invite for our formal wedding invitations as well. Posted on 8/31/2017
Great Service.Review by Justin
I recently ordered a sample of a save the date card for my wedding. This service was very easy to use online, and it provides so many different styles, options, etc. They were very professional in that they followed up with me even before the product was delivered. The presentation was very organized and well put together when it arrived. The only thing I would say that is if you are in Canada make sure to give yourself a bit of extra time for delivery as it's sent through the mail system, so it takes a bit longer to receive. Posted on 8/30/2017

Extremly happy with how our save the dates turned out! The pricing of them could not be beat and the quality was perfect! The shipping was incredibly fast as well.

Easy!Review by Lauren
I love how easy it is to create your own invites on this website. We had about 6 extra cards however 4 of them were misprinted on the top. Luckily we could have used a paper cutter to cut off the top portion and still been able to use the rest of the card. Posted on 8/3/2017

Basic invite was so easy to use, to order a preview of our Save the dates was so cheap and arrived within a week. We loved the look of it and Basic gave us a really nice discount to use towards our order. A few weeks later we ordered 100 and they arrived within a week as well and look awesome! We're very happy with how they turned out! Posted on 3/13/2017
The best invitationsReview by Claire
I highly recommend basic invite! I made my save the dates so easily on my phone! I had all of our engagement pictures on my phone so I could try out different photos on different save the date templates to see which one we really loved. Pricing is very reasonable, and they send you a couple of extras which is great. They were delivered in just a few days from when I ordered them, and they looked just the same from the online version. We will probably do our wedding invitations with basic invite also.

Traditional Script Save-the-Date CardReview by Melissa
Loved our save the dates!! Great quality and loved the Signature Matte paper. They also arrived quickly and the preaddressed envelopes saved us so much time. Only issue was due to my lack of self review over the addresses. The unit numbers did not auto populate through the contact import even after including their preferred header in excel. Still would order again! Posted on 2/1/2017
Love them!!!Review by Melissa

In Love with my Save the DatesReview by Christine
After looking at several website, I found our save the dates at Basic Invite. I guess I never knew how much these and invitations would cost but I was surprised at the cost. I bought these when they were on sale after Thanksgiving which really helped on the price. I love the quality of the save the date and how easy it was to personalize. They also sent me extra (I'm not sure how many) but that was nice. My only complaint is that my picture turned out darker than anticipated. I'm not sure if it is a filter for the pictures for this card like some do or not but even with this, I am still very satisfied with my purchase. Posted on 12/8/2016
Loved it!Review by Stephanie
The card was exactly as it showed and said it would be. Could not be happier! Will be ordering Save the date in bulk soon!! Posted on 11/30/2016

Our save the dates turned out great! With all of the expenses of a wedding it was really nice to find a site for invites and save the dates that are beautiful and that won't cost you an arm and a leg!

The save-the-date card was wonderful! I was able to easily upload any picture I wanted and narrate the text.

Great product for reasonable price!Review by Holley
We ordered a very basic save the date post card and it came out great! There's plenty of room to jazz up the basic designs to make it your own and I just love the way it turned out. I wish it came with envelopes, as I'm afraid the cards will get scratched in the mail, but overall very happy. Posted on 10/5/2016

Great product!Review by Amy
I ordered 6 samples of various products to have on hand to show potential photography clients. I was pleased with the rapid delivery and the quality of the products. Although, these were free samples, the prices for non-samples seem very reasonable. I look forward to referring my photography clients to Basic Invite for all of their invitation, announcement, & holiday card needs. Posted on 7/19/2016
