v & co living :: holiday cards

It’s that time of year when we dress up to take family portraits (with a new Baby Bennett!) for our Christmas cards, a tradition we look forward to each year. Some years our photo is candid and casual, but this year we’re likely using a shot from our book shoot to create a fun and festive card – below is an iPhone shot of one of the photos we’ll likely use this year. This was the day we wrapped shooting for our book, so it has a great meaning this holiday season.

This year we are creating our Christmas cards from Basic Invite for the first time, which is exciting! We love working with new and fresh companies for cute holiday cards.

What’s great about Basic Invite is that they are one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.

Custom Samples – 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 feel the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without licking a single one.

Address Capturing Service – Basic Invite offers 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. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.

Foil – Foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

What is your holiday card process each year?
