Personalised Christmas Cards - Holiday Season with Basic Invite


Design your own Christmas card

The holidays are coming…scary but true. It’s that time of year when the festive season begins to take over and the high street gets a lot busier. I’m certainly no Bah Humbug, I love Christmas, but I’m not a fan of waiting in ques, struggling with my shopping bags or standing around in a busy card shop searching for a Christmas card with an appealing design and meaningful verse for my closet friends and family. Cards and invitations that have been mass produced for the high street are never going to be special or unique – they lack a personal touch, because the card isn’t personal to the person you’re sending it to. Whereas a personalised Christmas card, created by you easily online, in the comfort of your home is. This personal touch will be sure to make your nearest and dearest feel extra special, it will be something that they would want to keep – not dump in the recycle bin as soon as new year’s over (I’m guilty of this!).


So, if you’re looking to send your loved ones a personalised card this holiday season, I would recommend checking out Basic Invite. They let you personalise your cards and invites down to the littlest detail – if you’re a perfectionist, then this is for you!

Basic Invite have an extensive range of luxurious Christmas card templates, beautifully designed in a whole range of styles, sizes and folds – I especially love their foil line and the three fold card where you can share what you have been up too over the year through a photo timeline (example in first photo). What makes Basic Invite so unique is that you can change the colour of each element on the card choosing from over 180 different colours. So, you can really give it your personal touch!


Every year I write cards to my family from me and my dog, but now I’ve found Basic Invite I’m going to surprise my family with a cheesy photo of us (I will attempt to get my pouch wearing a Santa hat but that won’t be easy!). Anyhow, once I’ve uploaded the photo and edited the colours to how I want it, I can then request a sample from Basic Invite so I can see how it looks and the feel of the paper quality before placing the final order.

To complete the personalised Christmas card, you can choose from over 40 different coloured envelopes. Plus, the envelopes are all peel and seal, which is a big deal because I really don’t like licking envelopes - I usually use water.

Basic Invite can also print the address on the envelope for you, for free! They have an address collection service, so that you can share a link and collect addresses that will be stored into your secure Basic Invite account.


It’s not just seasonal cards they do, Basic Invite also have over 200 wedding invitation sets. So, if you’ve found the perfect save the date card, you’ll also be able to get the matching wedding invites, enclosure card, wedding menu, wedding program and thank you card. To go alongside your matching theme, you can also create a personalised wedding guestbook which has been cleverly designed to stay flat when you have it on display on your wedding day.

Basic Invite have also recently introduced rose gold to their foil line and a clear collection – which I’m guaranteed you’ll love!
