Have you started working on your Christmas cards? Growing up in the south means Christmas card photos were shot in June and the address list finalized by September. Last year my husband and I had just moved into our Roswell house and were enjoying the first few months as an engaged couple when I realized Christmas cards were upon us. I stayed up far past my bedtime working on the framework of the card, choosing the perfect colors, and finalizing the dreaded address list. Because I am an indecisive person (see my blog post: Making Definitive Decisions), I asked Patrick for his opinion on the finished product before I confirmed shipping.
As much as any husband or child tries to tell you they don’t care about the card photo, they do. I make sure everyone is happy with the photo, before proceeding with card design, envelope, and custom stamps. While I’m sure you have Christmas card favorites of your own, I’m happy to tell you Basic Invite has finally made ordering cards enjoyable.
Unlike most websites, Basic Invite gives you instant access to online previews with over 180 color options and the opportunity to customize each element of your card. Instead of relying on an on-line digital image, you can order custom samples. The luxury to feel the paper, see the foils, and choose the shape of the card gives me the confidence to trust myself. With over 40 peel and seal envelopes to choose from, it’s easy to make your Christmas card stand out. I ordered three cards with foil and three without so I could make a decision in person. Which of one these is your favorite? Don’t worry I’ve already finalized my card and there is no going back!
In my experience, the most painful part of the Christmas cards process includes capturing addresses. Thankfully, Patrick and I got married in June, and our list is pretty much ready to go. I will admit, I captured wedding addresses the old fashioned way calling and texting until we had every last formal name on our invite list. Luckily, Basic Invite has come up with an easier capturing service that allows the customer to share a link on their social platforms for friends and family to fill out. Bonus, recipient address printing is included at no cost on all Christmas card orders
