Sponsored: Design Your Holiday Cards Your Way with Basic Invite


Traditional or nontraditional? That is the question.

With so many families celebrating the holidays with Christmas cards and holiday greetings you want to make sure that yours stands out from the rest. Without a doubt you will receive an abundance of oversized envelopes in green, and red, and silver – all obvious signs of a good old fashion Christmas card. And it’s exciting to receive mail that isn’t asking for your money in return, but why not switch it up a bit – get a little crazy for the holidays and design a set of unique Christmas cards that will wow those on the receiving end making that extra (maybe even extra bold) touch worth it!

Either way you take it, Basic Invite is the perfect place to turn to. They have over 250 holiday cards and Christmas cards with both traditional and nontraditional designs. Basic Invite also has more than 180 colors to choose from and with every element of each design being customizable – you have limitless options to choose from!


Here are just a few tips for all of you greeting givers on how to design the perfect holiday card no matter what style you choose!


Find Something Simple – Simple designs always make for classic choices. This way you can add a few special touches here and there which will make for a beautiful yet festive Christmas card.

Use a Classic Paper Type – Basic Invite has 5 different paper types, but you can’t go wrong with their signature matte or their double thick matte if you are looking to keep this year’s cards traditional.

It’s All In the Details – Adding just a small touch of something a little fancy will help bring your traditional holiday card design full circle, for example: one of Basic Invite’s foil cards. This season they have introduced their beautiful gold and silver foil to their holiday line and it’s the perfect way to add some festive cheer. Both foil options come in raised or flat.

Back To Basics – Do you remember those red and green envelopes we talked about earlier? Those staple holiday golds and greens, reds and silvers – those are all perfect envelope choices to keep it classy and send the ultimate traditional holiday card.


Choose Your Favorite Design – There are an abundance of designs to choose from – so, if you love shopping this might be the road to take! Have fun with it and choose a design with a little more flair.

Upload a Photo – Tons of pictures are snapped around the holiday season and with the option to upload a photo onto any of Basic Invite’s photo Christmas cards it’s the perfect opportunity to share a favorite captured moment with your loved ones.

Color. Color. Color. – Who says you have to stick to red and green, anyway… choose mismatched colors or bright shades of your favorite holiday palette. There are no rules when it comes to nontraditional holiday cards so take advantage of their choices and get creative! They also have over 40 different colored envelopes to match whatever out of the box theme you land on!
