There are 3 signs you’ve officially started “adulting”: going to bed early instead of going out with your friends, actually doing your laundry (instead of buying new clothes to wear), and sending out holiday cards. This year, I’m #adulting with some of the most adorable (and affordable) holiday cards by Basic Invite!
My husband and I might act like kids what with our obsession of cats, Marvel movies and frequent trips to Disneyland. But there are some moments we insist on acting like grown ups, aka the holiday season.
Fancy outfits and Christmas parties are what make us truly feel like we’ve finally joined the “married life club.” But what takes it to the next stage is holiday cards. Professing our happiest wishes or even giving our friends and family a synopsis of the last year seems like the pinnacle achievement as a real-life grownup.
Yet with so many stationery options to choose from, the idea of sending out holiday cards can seem incredibly overwhelming. The last two years we’ve been married, my husband and I gave up because we couldn’t decide on a good price or site.
But Basic Invite make its SO much easier.
Basic Invite is an online stationery shop with thousands of different cards and stationery options. And while they have every type of card from showers to graduations, let’s be real here: adulting is all about those holiday cards.
They have a range of modern holiday cards you can choose from with over 250 styles including fancy foiled cards, photo Christmas cards, New Year and ‘All Holiday’ options, and beautiful typography and calligraphy styles.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers an almost unlimited amount of color options. Simply select a template, change the color from over 180 different options and be happy with every, tiny detail. You can also pair these cards with over 40 different color envelopes (think classy, matte gold or super affordable eggshell white).
But what makes this service ten times easier is the address capturing service. Basic Invite offers an address capturing service allowing customers to share a link on social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. These addresses will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.
I also love the fact that you can receive a sample card before you choose your cards. Instead of getting 200 cards that you may not like, you can design your modern holiday cards and get a sample sent to your house! Not that Kev and I have THAT many friends…
Basic Invite is one of the most affordable stationery options online. But if that doesn’t entice you enough, Basic Invite is currently offering 30% off with coupon code: holi30
So this holiday season–in addition to chugging eggnog and eating all of Santa’s cookies–get super classy and order some holiday cards. Cause at the very least, you can subtly brag to everyone that you went to 8 different countries this year (cough, cough).
