It’s never too late to start planning for the holidays. I had never heard of the term Christmas in July until I moved to the United States. French people start planning for Christmas in December and send family cards in January as it’s the custom to offer best wishes for the New Year to friends and family during the entire month of January.
Now that I’m raising my family in the US, our tradition is to send Christmas Cards, which is my favorite part of the holidays. It’s a great time to reflect on the year and all the great moments we shared as a family. I usually pick photo Christmas cards like this New Noel Photo Christmas Card style from Basic Invite.
Our big family moment (so far) was celebrating France’s win in the World Cup. We watched the game at the French Embassy and it was quite special! My kids are huge soccer players so it was really amazing to see our home country become the world champion! I’m so happy we captured this unforgettable moment and thought it would be the best photo for our family card this year.
Basic Invite is so easy to use and offers many cheap holiday cards. You can customize your cards from a wide range of colors and graphic elements. What I love the most is you can order one sample so get to see the actual print quality before placing the final order. Order your holiday cards now (before the end of July) and get 30% OFF using code HOLI30.
Here’s more information about Basic Invite if you’re looking for new, cheap and chic stationary this year:
Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is 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 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.
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 cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code 15FF51 on any cards and 30% OFF on Holiday cards with coupon code HOLI30.
