I have and always will be a stationery geek. When summer used to draw to an end and the back to school date loomed in September, it only meant one thing – Brand New Stationery. The joy I had in buying new stationery every year still remains and I’ll forever be that stationery geek. Which is why when it comes to wedding stationery, there are so many exciting factors to consider. Design, paper samples, print finish, envelopes, quantity – and so on. Your wedding stationery is the first impression to your wedding and allows you to portray your personality and add as much wedding information as you wish. Here to begin your wedding stationery is Basic Invite – the truly custom invitation company.
Almost Unlimited Colours
I’m always a fan of colour, as you can tell just by looking at this blog, which is a huge variety of colour options is a must! Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited colour options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the colour of each element on the card to over 160 different colour options. So, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it – down to the littlest detail. And detail is essential of course.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites 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 an order for 500 invitations. I can’t emphasise how important this is. As you know I work as an account manager at a design studio so I deal with a lot of print management. A client ordered a prototype before placing an order for over 5,000 boxes and it’s a good job they did because they wasn’t happy with the prototype – amends were required before officially signing it off! This is why ordering a printed sample of your actual invitation is one of the winning points of buying your wedding stationery with Basic Invite. You have the peace of mind when you’ve physically got the invitation in your hand knowing you and your partner are pleased with it. Which means you’ll be happy sending it out to your guests knowing it will get a good reaction.
Over 40 Different Colours of Envelopes
I’m always a fan of doing something slightly different, in a good way of course! Instead of having a standard white or brown envelope, the site allows you to get creative with the colour of the envelopes too. You can choose from over 40 different colours when it comes to your envelopes so that you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without having to lick a single one. Ta-da!
Over 200 Wedding Invitation Sets
Matching matching. All of Basic Invite’s wedding invitations are part of a set which means, couples who like everything to match, are all sorted. You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations, enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and to finish it off – matching thank you cards. This is a perfect way of carrying your theme through from the start of your wedding right through to the end. I remember when one of my besties got engaged – she was torn between having completely different save the dates and wedding invitations. In the end, she went with the matching set, and it’s now proudly framed in her house as a beautiful wedding stationery set.
Foil Stamp Wedding Stationery
One last thing I must mention is the introduction of the foil stamp wedding stationery *dances with glee*. Can I just say that foil stamp makes everything look so beautiful. They have announced their new line of foil stamp wedding stationery – have your names in gold foil to add that premium effect to your stationery. Just look at the featured image of the post.
