BG Productions Vendor Spotlight || Basic Invite Stationery + Invitations

Basic Invite wedding invites stationary BG Productions blog post

We will be mixing up our vendor spotlight up a bit and talking about an online stationery and invitation company Basic Invite that we discovered. If you have planned a wedding or will be planning one soon, you will see there are so many places out there to order invitations from. It can be difficult to sort through all your different options and decide on the one that will be best for you. I recently came across Basic Invite and I was so impressed I decided to rave about it here on our blog. Hopefully this will help someone searching and point them in the right direction.

And they don’t only offer wedding related items but being in the wedding biz, that’s what I’m really interested in. You can get the whole matching shebang: bridal shower invites, save the dates, wedding invitations, thank you cards and even a custom guestbook. One of my favorite things I love from them is gold foil and their amazing fonts. You can also order samples in advance so you can hold your invites in your hands and really decide if they are you. And guess what, they have unbeatable prices and value, plus price matching. You literally can’t lose. Just take a look at some of the examples of their invites (+more). And imagine your BG Productions photos from your engagement session on them.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Katie, who is in charge of Public Relations for Basic Invite. And here I pick her brain a bit about what sets Basic Invite apart from all the rest. Here’s what she has to say:

How long has Basic Invite been in business and how has the company grown since its inception?

Basic Invite opened in 2006 as a wedding invitation company. It has since grown into a full-on stationery company selling stationery products for all of life’s major moments! In addition to our wedding stationery, we have photo graduation invitations, cool birth announcements, and more!

What is your most popular product?

Our wedding invitations are our most popular product.

What is YOUR favorite product?

I have so many favorite products! Personally, I love our new business cards and personal stationery. I have been seeing customers do so many cute things with these products! And of course, I love our classic wedding invitations anything rustic, floral, or vintage I am all about! This is just one of my personal favorites: The Vintage Botanical Wedding Invitation.

What other products do you offer that that people can use on their wedding day?

We offer wedding programs, wedding menus, and personalized guest books. You can even match all of these to your wedding invitation for an entire wedding invitation suite!

How far in advance do you recommend customers order and send out save the dates, wedding invitations and thank yous?

We suggest ordering save the dates 6 months in advance and sending them out 4 months prior to the event. Wedding invitations should be ordered as early as possible and sent out 3 months prior to the wedding. it is proper etiquette to get your thank you notes written and sent about 2 weeks after your wedding.

What is the turnaround time from ordering to when customers receive their cards or other products?

This depends on the customer. Once an order is placed it will take 5-10 business days to arrive. However, if a customer orders customer assistance, which is a program we offer to help customers edit and proof their cards, this will add a bit of time on to the turnaround time. If this service is purchased our production team gets back to customers within 1-2 business days and after that, it is up to the customer how much additional time is spent on revisions.

Do you have a large selection of Wedding sets?

Oh yes, we have over 200 Wedding invitation sets. Each of our wedding invitations is part of a set. You can find everything from save the dates to wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs and even matching thank you cards!

Talk to me about colors. Can you accommodate specific or unusual color themes?

We actually have almost unlimited color options. 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.
We are 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.
