My Favorite Holiday Tradition Brings On The Waterworks
Please note that this post contains sponsored links. I only recommend items that I have personally used and loved. Thank you for supporting The Daily Bubbly.
The holiday season is right around the corner and with all the holiday traditions coming up, I always stop to think which ones I loved the most. For me, it’s the cards both giving and receiving a Christmas card is absolutely the best. When I was a kid my parents would receive this Christmas card catalog with custom made and totally unique designs. Each year my parents would pick a different one and customize with all our names. I always remember the brown box coming in the mail, it was so special. Each one had to be assembled in a special way and mom would write a note and address each one to our relatives and friends. People absolutely loved them and waited each year to receive another. It's such a little thing but it makes such a difference to give that little bit of time. It’s why at this time of year I love to take a minute and show a little love and care to people in my life. With all the Happy birthdays on Facebook, it’s so personal to receive a card in the mail. This season I was able to partner with Basic Invites to create my family’s Christmas card. I have been a big fan of Basic Invites and love ordering stationery with them. So this partnership was a match made in stationery heaven. haha =)
Say It With A Card
I promise you the hardest part of the whole experience will be gathering your family up for a family photo. Once you have found a picture where no one is rolling their eyes and smiling you are ready to pick your card. Grab a cup of coffee or bubbly depending on the time of day and head over to the Basic Invite website, which the designs are anything but basic. Create a user name and get scrolling. With over 250 Christmas cards and holiday card designs I promise that you will have a hard time choosing your favorite. Thankfully Basic Invites makes it so easy to narrow it down, by clicking the heart they are automatically saved. After you have been through all your favorite colors and themes, head over to your favorite section. All the cards you have clicked the little heart will be saved all together for you look over and start the editing process.
For me, this is where the fun begins Basic Invites lets you see what your card looks like before you buy. You can create a holiday card personalized to you and your family. All your favorites will be ready for an easy edit. Mix fonts and colors or choose from different patterns for the back of the card. Change the color and message of the text, upload a photo with over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it, down to the littlest detail. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. I really feel that these options sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company and keeps me coming back time and time again. Did I mention they are FOIL too!@! Foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold, my absolute favorite!! Choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
Plus, you can order the samples you created so you can hold the card right in your hands for the final decision. I absolutely love this so I can see exactly how it will print as well as feel the paper quality. I always have my family weigh in and pick their favorites. After the rounds of debate, log in and order your favorite or if you are me... favorites. The customization doesn't stop there, there are more than 40 different colors of envelopes! I don't know about you but I am a lady who loves a color theme and this feature has my name written all over it. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without licking a single one because no one wants that job. You can even add in all your addresses and have them printed on the envelope, getting personalized holiday cards does not get any easier. Don't keep updated addresses or have everyone's address you would like to send a card too, no worries Basic Invite has you covered. They offer an address capturing service that allows you to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request your friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in your account and can then be selected during the design process. Plus they offer recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.
I am not kidding this stationery site is the best, if you have any questions there is someone a click away to help answer any questions. The service and quality are unbeatable, plus there are so many options to really customize your holiday cards just the way you would want them. They offer much more than holiday cards, explore their selection of holiday invitation templates for your upcoming Christmas Party.
