Great experience!Review by Amber
Our save the dates turned out exactly as they looked in the previews online. We had a great experience and will definitely order from again. Customer service was also great! I had a discount code that I lost, and they provided me with a new one. Posted on 12/13/2018
Nice save the datesReview by Meghan
Our save the dates ended up looking great, but we had to re-order them twice because they were printing off-center. We of course did not get charged for the second or third orders, and the customer service was great to work with. Posted on 12/3/2018
Quality and quick! Review by Harriet
We had a good experience with a relatively painless process (some snags on the address upload) , fast turnaround and a high quality cocktail invite! Plus we received a few extra cardsbeyond our ordered number, which was a nice plus. Thank you for a job well done. Posted on 11/21/2018

Great Experience Review by Ginny
I had a great experience using Basic invite on my save the dates. I designed the cards myself, then uploaded them to Basic Invite.

The quality of the paper and the envelopes were great, and my design turned out exactly how I wanted it to. Even when I was missing 15 cards and envelopes, Basic Invite was quick to respond and ship missing items.

I would recommend them to anyone looking to save on money, without sacrificing quality and customer service.

Great product and serviceReview by Lisa
Cards came out beautifully, and arrived more quickly than expected. I used the site chat when I discovered that the discount code hadn't been applied to my order, and it was corrected immediately. Posted on 3/3/2018
Populating guest addresses a huge plusReview by Michael
My print out was better by increasing the pixel dimensions and not worrying about DPI. Adding addresses to the envelopes for printing was a MAJOR help and is one of the main reasons why we chose Basic Invite. Posted on 2/17/2018
Almost perfect Review by Anna
The colors aren't nearly as bright as I had expected, but otherwise the cards are just what I was hoping for! Posted on 1/22/2018

Great product!Review by Danielle
I loved how easy it was to use this system. I made my own design, uploaded it and had it printed. I ordered a sample before placing a full order to check out quality and color, all of which was great. I also requested the product be checked before it was sent to print which gave me ease of mind. The Save the Dates turned out great and I am very pleased! I'm so glad I went with Basic Invite for my complete wedding set. Also, the addressing on ALL items is something you CAN'T beat.

BEST COMPANY EVER!!!Review by Erin
Basic Invite was so easy to work with and the quality is amazing! We bought our save the dates 2 weeks ago and chose the create your own design postcard with the shimmer pearl finish. Unfortunately, when our package showed delivered, they were not in our mailbox. The post office had misplaced it! I was devastated and started to panic. I had reached out to USPS to file a claim but I had also emailed Basic Invite to see what my options were if they could not retrieve my package. They were willing to work with me to get my order replaced and even helped to send priority. I have never experienced such great customer service. With an event that already carries so much stress, they made this headache go away within seconds. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. Basic Invite is the way to go for all your stationary needs, without a doubt!! Posted on 6/12/2017
Our Save-The-Dates are great!Review by Candace
The Basic Invite system is so easy to use. Our save-the-dates turned out amazing! We wanted to have something unique and all our own, not some cookie cutter ones like everyone else does. The option to have the envelopes addressed was excellent as well. We are highly satisfied customers! Thank you Basic Invite! Posted on 4/28/2017
Great design options! Review by Heather
I decided to use Basic Invite to print our save the dates because I loved the ability to have complete control over the design (I'm a graphic designer) and envelop color. Printing on the envelopes was a plus too! The colors and quality came out great, but the reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the edges were a little frayed from the cutting process... I selected the double matte thickness upgrade so that may have been why. Other than that I would recommend this product, but next time I would choose the standard thickness. Posted on 2/27/2017
Great ProductReview by monica
I spent months looking for invitations and save the dates. I had seen some print-at-home options on etsy that I loved, but was nervous to commit to finding my own printer/printing company. I feared that I'd be stuck choosing between quality or price. I was exploring Basic Invite for paper products and decided to take a chance on the upload your own save the date option. I am SO glad I did, and so impressed that I know I'll be back to order my formal invites as well. The printing quality was way better than I'd expected. The colors are vibrant, the lines are crisp and bright. I am BEYOND pleased. Even the envelopes are gorgeous, and the price can't be beat! For anyone on the fence, especially about the printing quality - go for it! I don't think you'll be disappointed. Posted on 2/8/2017

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
Really AppreciativeReview by Megan
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
Great options and price and product Review by Jennifer

Nice!Review by Mary
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
