Loved my Invites!Review by Sarah
I absolutely loved my invites! They came in the mail sooner than expected and were just what I was expecting! Since I designed my own invites I was worried about colors being off, but they were spot on! Posted on 2/28/2019
excellent quality and fast serviceReview by Barbara
This is the second time I am using Basic Invite. I love how I can order a sample card especially when I am uploading my own design and could not sure how it will appear printed. The first invitation I designed had my original watercolor of the couple with their dog at the top and I was nervous about how well this would reproduce. It was perfect! And the cards came with envelopes already addressed. The couple was so pleased. This time, I am designing a wedding invitation for my son and again, I am uploading my own design. This card is complicated for many reasons and not just because It is for my son! After seeing the first sample of the printed card I was able to adjust for color and font size and I’m now waiting for a new print to arrive in the mail. Knowing I could work with this company to get a perfect invite for a very special wedding makes this a perfect match for me! Posted on 2/28/2019

Best decision I made! Review by Kasey
I am happy I went with using the editing service! Reassurance has so much more value then the small price it cost! Thank you for double checking and settling my mind on my invitation! Posted on 1/12/2019
With so many choices I am so happy I picked Basic invite!!Review by Kasey
After trying to figure out what siten to use for my wedding invitations I finally picked Basic Invite after my friend recommended and I am so happy I did! Easy website, address book, and my uploaded design printed wonderfully! Look no farther just use Basic Invite!! Thank you! Posted on 1/12/2019
Great Printing and InstructionsReview by Tina
I thought this printing service was excellent. I designed my entire invitation card and the color came out great . The instructions were simple and easy to follow. The instructions even had the size of what your jpg image should be so it fits properly on their 5x7 card, which was great. Another website I looked into didn't have that and I had to call customer service to see what size the image should be because I know there's a bleed margin, and even then, the rep was kind of guessing. I also noticed that the other 2 websites (vistaprint and shutterfly) that I looked into, which they can also print your own design, had different measurements for the end product that were not true 5x7. They were either slightly smaller in dimension or just way off (I bought the sample card to see how it looked like). I say Basicinvite is great if you want to design your entire card. And the envelopes with addresses printed for free was a plus too. :D Posted on 11/28/2018

Self-Designed Bar Mitzvah InvitationsReview by Jeremy
I designed my son's Bar Mitzvah invitations. I had several questions throughout the process to upload my designs, create envelopes, etc. and the Chat team was super helpful. All my questions were answered and I was impressed with their knowledge. All of my email correspondence was timely and the price, and discount offered, were great. My only issues was the print and trim quality of my designs. Their process to print isn't perfect, and some of the detail I designed didn't come through. Although, it certainly wasn't a deal-breaker and overall I was content. Likewise, the trim work of my artwork was a bit off center vs. how I delivered it. That too wasn't a deal breaker... I'm just a particular designer. Especially for my own stuff! Posted on 8/30/2018
Excellent!Review by Chaka
Beautiful samples! I'm trying out to see which design works best for my invites and I can't seem to make up my mind due to the quality of the paper! Posted on 8/7/2018

Excellent product selection & quick turnaround! Review by Kelsey H.
I wanted to design my own wedding invitations while also being able to order pre-addressed invitations, and you wouldn't believe how hard that is to find online. Luckily, someone suggested Basic Invite. Not only do they allow you to upload your own designs, they also have cool products like the pocket invitations and seal & send to make your invitation even more special. And not having to address my own invitations? - The icing on the cake. They have so many font choices and allow you to add your return address. Literally, everything is customizable down to the color and fonts. At a decent price, too. I'm overall just so pleased with my decision to use Basic Invite. Will definitely use them again!

They do the mailing!Review by Jeff
Honestly, that's really my favorite part! Posted on 6/14/2018
Wonderful!Review by Alleshea
We are so impressed with the quality of the invitations and easy free envelope printing! We had a detailed front of our invitations and a large photo of us on the back - both of which were printed with very high quality. We ordered the Double Thick Matte paper and love the thickness and texture of the paper - perfect for pictures. It was exactly what I wanted! The envelope addressing was a life saver and made the invitation process so much easier. The price was a major plus and the order arrived almost a week early! Posted on 6/2/2018
We love it!Review by Meredith
We couldn’t be happier! Thank you!! Posted on 5/25/2018
Superb customer serviceReview by Lisa
My invitations came out beautifully, but what really impressed me was how wonderful the customer service was. I was having problems uploading an image file and the customer service rep worked with me to try to figure out what the issue was, and then pulled in one of their designers to fix it. The communication turnaround was so fast that I genuinely felt like my business was a high priority for them, and this was before I had paid for anything. I will definitely order from Basic Invite in the future and recommend them to anyone who needs a printer. Posted on 5/14/2018
Wedding and shower invitationsReview by Michelle
I created my own design, as I am a graphic designer. The site was very easy to use as far as uploading my own images. The finished product was absolutely beautiful. I love all the options they provide as far as pockets, card sizes, custom envelopes, and paper finishes. They also have tons of beautiful templates. I've been very impressed with everything I've recieved. Posted on 5/4/2018
Good QualityReview by Alaya
I loved the quality of my invitations they came out perfect and so did the image uploaded on the design. I was a little surprised at the price as it was an uploaded image and blank blue background and it was almost a dollar more than my save the dates. Which was a picture on each side plus writing. I guess if its an invite its more expensive. It was still worth the price diffrence, however confusing. Posted on 5/2/2018
Exactly what I wantedReview by Joan
I recently purchased my wedding invitation from Basic Invite. We designed our own invitation and they came out perfectly! They also arrived ahead of schedule! Posted on 4/12/2018

Wedding InvitationsReview by Rikki
I really enjoyed using Basic Invite to print our DIY wedding invitations. Proofs were accurate, great paper quality, and invitations arrived quickly. Loved the free envelope printing too! They ended up being a little more expensive than we could have found elsewhere but we were pretty specific about the paper we wanted. I'm very satisfied and would order from again if in need of a thicker paper. Posted on 3/23/2018
Perfect!Review by Samantha
I designed my own wedding invite package, we originally wanted it screen printed but was quoted at over $1000... which is pure insanity! We got everything expedited and it was here within a week, including the proof, and was totally affordable.
I highly recommend the double matte and regular matte paper! Posted on 3/7/2018
Exactly what I wantedReview by Laura
Absolutely perfect. Got the double thick paper and it is so sturdy and feels important. Exactly what I wanted so I could print my own invitation design. Posted on 2/24/2018
Simple and Beautiful!Review by Michelle
I purchased a template from Etsy for my vow renewal invitations. Basic Invite had the best price for the "upload your own" option. Our invitations, much like our anticipated ceremony, are very simple and minimal, but beautiful. The olive envelope stuffer was a perfect touch, and the invitations turned out just how I wanted. They even arrived two days earlier than expected. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job at an affordable price! Posted on 2/22/2018
Reliable, Fast, and affordable printingReview by Andrew
I ordered custom designed save the dates through Basic Invite. The whole process was extremely easy and stress free. Customer Service reps were always able to chat to help with any snags along the way. Basic Invite made the process of uploading a custom design to organizing our address book seamless. I will, and have, recommend Basic Invite to friends and family for their parties/weddings/etc. Posted on 2/20/2018

Great product! Easy to use system.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 invites 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. Posted on 1/7/2018
Very niceReview by Keeten
We love our invitations! And so do all the recipients! It was very fast production! Posted on 8/20/2017
Great product, great customer service, and fast shipping to boot!Review by Keeten
We have ordered several samples and several different orders of the same invitation to our wedding and every single one of them has been perfect! Price was a little high because we didn't order a ton, but they are super awesome and we love them! Thanks!! Posted on 8/11/2017
They were great! We're very happy with our invites Review by Rachel
We ordered our wedding invites through here. My roommate designed them and the colors stayed true after print! Quality of the paper was great, not thin or flimsy (we went with the standard matte). We did not pay the $20 for double checking but customer service was still so diligent and reached out to check on one thing with our invites before sending to print! They send you emails so you know to go look at it right away and it won't delay the process.
Overall they were great. Everything was handled well and the quality of the invites were great!! Posted on 7/21/2017
Responsive and Apt Service - We are thrilled with our finished product!Review by Leigha

Perfect Products!!!Review by Becky
I LOVE the quality of these cards! I used it for one of my clients and it made me wonder why I went elsewhere. Definitely a repeat customer from now on. Absolutely loved the bracket shape of the card. I couldn't find it for this price anywhere else. Posted on 5/6/2017

AMAZING - so pleased with the resultsReview by Natalie
As a wedding planner at 3 Little Words Events, I had high standards for my invitations going into planning my wedding, especially because I LOVE the feel of beautiful paper goods. After browsing through many of the major invitation shops and not finding anything I liked, I decided to design my own. I found that it was a much cheaper option too, and that Basic Invite's Double Thick Matte paper felt even nicer than a lot of the samples I had gotten from other invitation shops. I'm so happy with the high quality printing, which was both crisp and vibrantly colored. Printing and delivery was also extremely quick - they arrived within a week! Their envelopes, while not super thick, still had a nice texture and were very nice for the price.

TL;DR - don't hesitate to order your wedding invites from Basic Invite. I loved mine! Posted on 11/18/2016
Really great product!Review by Tiffany
I was pretty satisfied with the final result. It really helped my vision come to life, and I can't wait to receive my final invitations. Posted on 8/29/2016
Invites turned out perfect! Review by Janessa
I used basic invite to upload my own designs I created for print. They turned out beautiful! The colors were spot on, alignment was perfect, and the matt finish was exactly what I was looking for with some good weight in the paper size. Overall, I will be ordering more when I need them through this site! Posted on 7/24/2016
Basically THE BESTReview by molly
I dable in design and wanted to design our own wedding invitations. I was able to design exactly what I wanted and pricing for the printing here at Basic Invite was amazing. Their customer service was also outstanding-- they worked with me to make sure I was 100% happy. Posted on 6/21/2016
Very impressed!Review by Erin
I was able to do a sample of my wedding invitation first to make sure the sizing and colors were correct. When the sizing was off on the sample, Basic Invite sent me a free sample to correct the issue. My invitations arrived with the correct sizing and in perfect shape. Cannot say enough great things about Basic Invite! Posted on 6/13/2016
Just What I WantedReview by Kelly
I decided to try the Upload Your Own suite for my wedding invitations because I am a Marketing Director and wanted to design my own invites with a theme that matched the rest of the event. I came up with an illustration for the invitation panel itself and then added the RSVP cards and Direction cards to all fit inside the Crystal Shimmer pocket and envelope. Overall this suited my needs exactly, as I hadn't found anywhere else that offered a good product with this much control over the design. The finished product invites and cards came out just as I'd envisioned. The turn-a-round time for printing and shipping everything was amazing. I felt confident that if I had had an issue or question, I could have contacted someone to help. The only negative was that I think I could probably have gotten this whole package for a much better price with a local printer. But for someone with a little design experience who wants control over their project and is willing to pay, go with this! Posted on 6/1/2016

They look beautiful Posted on 2/11/2016
Worked out great!Review by Claire
We designed our own invitation in Sketch (cause we're interface designers, not print), saved a high res PNG, and we ordered a single sample. It looked great, so we got a full order once we'd made some tweaks. If this is the way you want to go, I recommend using Illustrator or InDesign, being sure to mind the bleeds. We used thick paper and rounded corners, and the result was crisp and nice! Also, the turnaround was always super quick, and communication was great. Posted on 2/5/2016
The ability to order a live sample is awesome!Review by Melissa
My brother and his fiance were dead-set on having bracket-shaped invites printed on pearl paper. As I hunted around the internet, there always seemed to be a draw-back with one vendor or another until I found BasicInvite. BasicInvite allowed me to upload my own design on both the front and the back of the card, and even let me order a sample print so I could see the quality and color before placing the entire order. This really gave us the peace of mind to move forward with the full order. They even let you upgrade your envelopes to colored ones for a very reasonable fee! So far my experience with BasicInvite has been awesome. I'll definitely be telling all of my designer friends about them :) Posted on 1/22/2016
Love my wedding invites!Review by Kristi
I have a friend who is a graphic designer, but I was nervous about getting invitations printed online. I got mine in recently and they are perfect! I opted for the review from basic invite ($10 extra but worth the peace of mind) and they made one suggestion for me. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience with basic invite. I even had a question later on and used the live chat box, and got quick and fantastic customer service. Posted on 1/15/2016
