Today I want to share a little story that has become near and dear to my heart since we moved to the beautiful land of maple leaves and snowflakes - Canada. Making holiday cards has not just been a yearly task; it's become a cherished Christmas tradition that we absolutely adore.

Since our relocation to Canada, we've embraced the magic of the holiday season in a way that's uniquely ours. Amidst the winter wonderland, one tradition took root and blossomed into something truly special - our annual Christmas mini photos sessions turned beautiful Christmas cards.

It all started with a simple desire to capture the essence of our Canadian experience and share it with our loved ones, scattered across the globe.

This year I stumbled upon a wonderful find: Basic Invite.

Almost Unlimited Colors

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that not only allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online but also offers the flexibility to design Christmas cards. Once they select a design, customers can change the color of each element on the card, ensuring that the invite is sure to be exactly how they want it. With over 180 colors to choose from, this personalized touch distinguishes Basic Invite from almost any other online stationery company, making them an ideal choice for creating both personal and professional Christmas cards for companies.

Custom Samples

I noticed that Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. They can see the paper quality and how it will print, and make sure the card is perfect.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes

Basic Invite has over 40 different envelope colors to choose from. With so many options, customers can make their envelope match the invitation. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so they can be closed quickly and securely.

Address Capturing Service

Basic Invite's address capturing service is a game-changer. A simple link shared on social media, and voila – friends and family addresses are effortlessly collected and stored in your account. The added perk of free recipient address printing on all card orders makes the process not only seamless but also a time-saver for busy families, this is such a big win!


For those who love a dash of sophistication, Basic Invite's foil cards in gold, silver, and rose gold are a true gem. The choice between flat and raised foil adds a layer of personalization to our greetings that feels like magic.
