Christmas in July | Holiday Cards with Basic Invite

It’s Christmas in July! As most of you know, we took a family trip to San Diego last month. While there we decided to take family photos on the beach. They turned out so beautifully that we opted to use one of them for our family holiday cards this year.

Since the photos just came back it was fresh on my mind and I decided to go ahead and order our cards now. Yes in July! The holiday season can get so hectic between parties, family events. and shopping for gifts that I often forget about my holiday cards! It isn’t until others start to arrive in the mail that I remember I never did it. Oops.

I chose to use Basic Invite for our cards this year. It was a no brainer really. They have a huge selection to choose from including custom holiday photo cards, watercolor Christmas cards, company holiday cards, and foil cards. Plus, their design templates can be customized even further by changing the font and color.

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that offer 180 color options with an instant preview so you can make sure your cards look exactly how you envision. I was even able to order a sample prior so I could double check the color.

They also makes the process of getting cards out super easy by offering an address capturing service. One of my favorite features! Who has time to sit around writing everyones address? Not me! Simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media and requested that friends and family send their addresses. The addresses are then stored in your customer account on Basic Invited and printed on envelopes at no extra cost.
