Create Custom Invitations with Basic Invite

posted by Lindsay Satmary January 1, 2018

Who loves a good party? I know I do….. but I think I have just as much fun planning the party as I do enjoying the actual party! In collaboration with Basic Invite, I wanted to share with you a fun way to create custom party invitations! Basic Invite is an invitation printing company that allows customers to create and order printed party invitations. They are one of a few websites that offer some great options to customize the invitations to something one-of-a-kind with a variety of personalization settings.


First, you create an account online. Then, browse through hundreds of design templates to find one to customize. You can also upload your own artwork if you are a designer, but the templates also offer a ton of custom options. Once you find one you like, you can change out the text and add your own images if needed. You can choose your own font and font size, and drag and drop the items until your invite looks perfect. Basic Invite offers over 180 color choices so you can be sure your party invitations will match your party perfectly!  They also offer envelopes in over 40 colors. If you’re looking for premium options, choose custom card shapes or other upgrades like silver, gold, or rose gold foil and even have your cards printed on shimmer paper in pearl white.

The website is very easy to use. Basic Invite doesn’t have any quantity requirements on their orders, so you’re able to order a sample of your exact printed invites and see what it looks like before you place your final order! If you like a few designs, this is a great way to finalize your choice.

Basic Invites offers a variety of special occasion invites (and coordinating Thank You cards) from weddings to holiday events, birthdays, and more! Here are a few different examples I created and you can check out my video here to see how I did it:


To get started on creating your party invitations, head over to Basic Invite’s website:! Be sure to sign up for their mailing list for access to promotions and special offers. You can also follow Basic Invite on Instagram for some invitation design inspiration here.

Happy party planning!

What’s the next party event in your life?
