In 2019, I discovered www.basicinvite.com and I'm in love with their print quality and customization options. Oh, and I can't forget how affordable they are compared to other popular holiday card printing companies. Printing your recipient and return addresses is complimentary and shipping is free, too!
Before I get into customizations and details, I have a discount code for you!

This year, we chose a minimalist design to coordinate with our photo that we took while in Marfa, Texas this fall. We're native Texans but had never been out West. We chose to visit Marfa for to see the infamous Prada Marfa art installation standing in the middle of nowhere. It's not a real store, but it does have real Prada shoes and bags in it. It was very cool to see!
Ok, on to the card customizations.
With www.basicinvite.com, you can customize almost anything on the cards. For example, the card we chose was originally a Hanukkah card. Since we aren't Jewish, I was able to easily change it to say Happy Holidays. I also changed the color behind the text to match the colors in our picture.
Printing on the back of the card costs a little extra but I think it's worth it because it's a great spot to showcase our beloved doggie, Cash. We do not have kids yet, so I like to let everyone know what he's been up to during the year.
You can also choose a patterned background and customize the color. Here is a preview of the patterns they offer. There are several more on the site.
Gold and rose gold foil is available and it's stunning! We printed our cards last year with the gold foil. It is very high quality and the foil shimmers beautifully. Even though I'm a photographer, we hired another photographer for our cards and this is how they turned out. :)
