Custom Invitations with Style from Basic Invite

Truly Custom Invitations

My friend, Jen, will be welcoming her second bundle of joy in July. She’s a super busy working mama, so I was trying to figure out how I could help her out. Knowing we could all use the gift of time, I thought that I could design some baby stationery for her little girl. She’s already had her Baby Spinkle, so it’s too late for shower invitations. But, I would LOVE to design baby announcements and Thank You cards for her baby girl.

My friends over at Basic Invite stepped in to help out!

Limitless Choices

I visited Basic Invite and headed right over to the baby girl birth announcements where Abbi  immediately caught my eye.


Almost Unlimited Colors

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. These limitless options set Basic Invite apart from almost any other online stationery company.
I loved the original colors, but wanted to play around with them a bit.
I used the colors in Abbi’s hat for inspiration. Original colors above. New choices below.

Change The Shape

 I love that you can further personalize your card by changing its shape. The bracket would be another sweet way to personalize the announcement.

Custom Samples

Basic Invite is one of the few sites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

I’m always nervous about hitting that purchase button without seeing a real live sample! I’d love to get a sample announcement before I make a big purchase.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes

Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. You can choose from over 40 different colors of envelopes so that your invitation will stand out even before it is opened. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. I chose this beautiful sparkly  gray color. Pewter Shimmer, to be exact.

Free Address Collection Service

If you’re looking for convenience, use their free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. Super simple!

Not Just Baby Announcements

Basic Invite offers more than just baby announcements of course. There are soooooo many options to create baby shower invitations
Here are a few of my favorite baby girl shower invites: this first one would be perfect for an afternoon tea. Or, how about a couple’s backyard barbecue?
And I love the subway art-inspired black and teal. And there’s always the classic Under the Sea theme.
 Let’s not forget the boys! I found some sweet baby boy shower invites too. How about bees? Or, if those aren’t your thing, then books!

Baby Shower Thank You Cards

After all the festivities are done, Basic Invite has thank you cards for baby showers too! Wreaths perhaps, or maybe a Super Princess?
And I found the perfect thank you note for that backyard barbecue! Cute condiments!
