Are you engaged and on the hunt for wedding invitations? Do you love invitation suites by independent designers but find them too expensive or the process of working with a designer too cumbersome and overwhelming? Basic Invite provides clients a boutique experience with limitless fonts, colors, and design-oriented templates printed on quality paper, and from start to finish, the process of getting gorgeous wedding invitations is fast, stress-free, and affordable.
Basic Invite’s founder decided to apply his knowledge from the tech industry to the world of wedding stationery after getting married and feeling frustrated about a lack of options. So he created the Squarespace of wedding papergoods: customizable iterations of beautifully designed invitations. His goal was to give couples hundreds of options to choose from without overwhelming them. It’s easy to find an elegant template on Basic Invite that can be quickly customized according to your preferred script, color palette, and photos.

One of our favorite things about this company is its down-to-earth client-centered approach. They know you have a lot on your plate while wedding planning, and they’ve built their company around giving you an awesome experience. Once you customize your invitation, you can preview it instantly online, but even better, you can request a sample in the mail before you commit to ordering hundreds of copies. Basic Invite explains: “This saves our customers a lot of time, money, and grief and also provides them with peace of mind when ordering that they won't find elsewhere.”
If you do have any trouble, you can live chat with their customer support team about tech issues, design suggestions, shipping inquiries, and pricing.
But don’t mistake Basic Invite as a budget knock-off or a faceless company! Their product options include real wood wedding invitations, gold and silver foil invites, peal and seal envelope liners, and custom guest books. Furthermore, Basic Invite is a small company that really savors the privilege of being involved in their clients’ life milestones. They support one another to provide excellent service and to continue innovating to make their website as user-centered as possible.
They also value accessibility. While wedding invitations start at the affordable price of $0.99 a piece, “There is never a time where we don't offer some sort of discount code on our website. Sometimes we have multiple promotions running at the same time.” And the more cards you order, the less each individual card costs. “Most of our customization options are at no extra cost, but if you want to upgrade your paper type to our premium shimmer or double thick matte or add gold or silver foil to an invitation you are going to see a bit of an increase in the price, but the quality of our products and ease of the process is so worth it!”
In addition to wedding invitations, Basic Invite offers paper goods for all of life’s milestones. When asked about holiday cards, they shared some exciting promotions and innovation in their technology with us: “This holiday season we rolled out an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends’ and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. We will be offering recipients address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders during the 2016 season! We have 15% off everything site wide and 30% off on all of our holiday greeting cards.”
