Thank You’s + Wedding Invitations

I am obsessed with handwritten thank you notes. I believe there is power in snail mail for hundreds of reasons; but that will have to be for another blog post. (Because I would roll on and on and on and on and on and on about it.)

Because of my love of the good old USPS, it was a no brainer when Katie from Basic Invite reached out to me to ask if I would be interested in testing out their online card design system. Thousands of thank you notes at my fingertips? Absolutely.

Basic Invite, based out of Southern Utah (USA Based businesses for the win!), has gone above and beyond the “template” world of online ordering. They have hundreds of gorgeous designs that you can 100% completely totally customize to your liking. They have 180+ colors to chose from (and they’ll even mail you a handy printed color sheet!) and over 100 fonts which makes designing exactly what you want super easy.

So Basically, I have said goodbye to boring thank you notes. (“Basic”ally, see what I did there? 😉 )

And the best part for all of my brides out there, they have FULL wedding invitation suites! Save the dates, invitations, RSVP card, envelopes, accommodations, etc. So if you want a wedding invitation that is truly you, but don’t quite have it in the budget to splurge on an artist designed fully custom suite, Basic Invite is an amazing option! They’ll even mail you printed samples so you don’t have to guess from a computer screen how it will print!

I have already used every single one of my thank you cards (good thing I photographed them as soon as they arrived!) and can’t wait to order more. I am especially excited to try out their “Modern Clear” line which launched shortly after I placed my first order.

(Full disclosure, I didn’t take the picture above. But I am so obsessed with this clear print that I needed to share it so Katie sent me a stock photo from the Basic Invite collection!).

Basic Invite also sent custom notecards to all of the gals that went to Colorado with us. So obviously, I had to take a photo of my favorite one (because, coffee!) with the Colorado Red Rocks.

Katie was also sweet enough to share a discount code for all of you to receive 15% off your order! Just input 15FF51 at checkout!

Happy Snail Mail!
