Send out Christmas Cards
Sending out cards is the most holiday thing ever! My favourite place to do this is Basic Invite! If you want to send physical cards or send holiday cards online, this is the place to be! Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once they select a design, customers can change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 colors to choose from, the invite is sure to be exactly how they want it. This is what sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company.
Here are some of my favourite cards:
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. They can see the paper quality and how it will print, and make sure the card is perfect. You can also send out corporate cards by checking out their company christmas cards page.
