I absolutely adore the holiday season, and today I’m sharing with you a great way to start planning for your winter festivities: customized Basic Invite holiday cards!

My family has always loved sending and receiving Christmas cards. Last year was the first time that I’d sent out any of my own as a real, grown-up adult. I took part in this really awesome blogger holiday card swap, which you can read about here. It was incredibly fun getting holiday mail from so many awesome bloggers. However, I did regret buying cards last-minute once I saw some of the cute personalized cards that others had!
Basic Invite holiday cards solve this problem nicely; they have customizable options that you can make your season’s greetings really special and unique. For starters, they have over 180 different color options! That means that you can tweak your color palette down to the tiniest detail, which is especially nice if your card will be featuring a fantastic family photo. They also have over 40 color options for peel-and-seal envelopes, so you don’t have to put your beautiful, colorful creation in a boring white envelope to mail.
In addition to previewing your custom design online, you can also order a printed sample! I really love that this is an option for Basic Invite holiday cards, because I hate ordering something online and finding out that it looks different in person than it did on my computer screen. If you start planning your cards early, you’ll have plenty of time to test out a sample design and make your final decision before you need to stick them in the mail!
Oh, and speaking of planning ahead, Basic Invite has an address capturing service. You share the link with family and friends, and their addresses are stored in your customer account. When you’re ready to go, you can just select for their addresses to be printed on the card during the design process (and it doesn’t cost anything)! This is honestly what makes me the most excited about using Basic Invite for holiday cards. Double-checking and handwriting out all those recipient addresses can really take the fun out of everything. I wish I’d known about this last year!
If you’re ready to jump into the holiday spirit and start designing your very own personalized holiday cards, head on over and check out Basic Invite!

P.S. Yep, I’m totally wearing my Christmas pjs in October. My philosophy is that once it’s cold enough for long sleeves, it’s cold enough for winter pajamas! 😀
