Great!Review by Rachel
Great product, just a thick paper postcard, no shine or protection on the image side but was just what we wanted. However, their logo on the space for the stamps is bigger than a postcard stamp. Posted on 10/24/2018
Amazing quality and fast shipping Review by Laura
We chose to do the custom save the dates and could not be happier! Basic invite was really quick to answer any questions I had and the invites are stunning! The best part was they were supposed to arrive on a Tuesday and ended up coming on the Friday beforehand! Extremely fast shipping. We will be doing all of our paper goods here! Posted on 8/8/2018

Great for DIY Save the DatesReview by Chelsea
Couldn't find save the date format that I wanted so I made my own. It was really nice having this option available as i really didn't want to be shoehorned into a style of Save the Dates that didn't fit me.

Make sure to follow all picture quality guidelines they have up and respect the boundary lines they mention for the cut offs and you'll be fine.
Good quality, prints came out nicely.
Shipped super quick (prints arrived 3-4 days earlier than expected for regular delivery vs having to shell out the extra money for faster shipping.)

The only Downside was they made you pay for regular shipping. At the time of purchase i was able to use a site wide 15% off coupon which helped negate the cost of the shipping so in all actuality I only paid for the prints themselves.
If you can find a coupon to use then this is a good place to get your Save the Dates.

Solid!Review by Samantha
I designed my own save the date for my upcoming wedding. The samples came quickly and so I was able to make changes and make a deadline. The order came quick as well! Posted on 9/10/2017
Great service!Review by Briana
We were extremely happy with the option to upload our own design. Quick, easy and the samples all looked great. Pricing was reasonable and I love that the Basic Invite team is available to assist along the way. Posted on 9/7/2017

Best experience I've had!Review by RMC
First of all, the customization available for just a regular Save the Date is phenomenal. Changing fonts, wording, spacing -- all for free? Perfection. I liked the Save the Date cards available, but they didn't quite mesh with the theme, so I went the uploading custom route. I am *so glad* I did. I dug through other sites' options for custom Save the Dates, but Basic Invite provides exact dimensions for the uploaded file, and gives the most detailed options for personalizing. Although the Save the Date comes with an envelope, I chose to test out mailing my sample card as a postcard. It came through the mail perfectly, with the most minor of scuffing around the edges of the card. I am exceedingly happy; anytime anyone mentions needing invitations for anything, I plan to recommend Basic Invite. Posted on 3/8/2017
Great, good quality print and materialReview by Katherine
This sounds generic but, we really liked the way our sample turned out. We will definitely be placing a full order within the next couple weeks. Posted on 1/10/2017
So Happy!Review by Jessica
I love to be able to offer invitation design to my clients. Being able to offer that service takes a lot of stress if their already very full plate. I love showing them the complete and final design.
Love Basic Invite! Posted on 11/23/2016

Save the date postcards turned out perfect! No issues and they arrived almost a week earlier than estimated! Their upload your own design makes it very easy to customize. Will be ordering our invites from basic invite as well! Posted on 12/9/2015
Great ServiceReview by Tina
I uploaded a picture that was a little dark. The background came out black and I felt they were not usable. I emailed in and talked with someone from BasicInvite. They worked with me and gave me a huge discount so I could reorder. This time I ordered two samples before placing the big order. They were easy to work with and I will use them in the future.
