This is a partnered post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Like most years, I’m behind on ordering our Christmas cards. Since I love sending photo Christmas cards, it always comes down to choosing the right photos. Since we don’t see some family and friends very often, I like including photos of our children. When choosing our cards for the holidays, I’m pretty picky!
With so many different places to order from, sometimes it can be difficult to choose which company to order cards for the holidays from. Because I’m picky, I look for companies who offer me a greater value, whether that be in cost or services.

They offer a beautiful selection of modern Christmas cards, stationery, announcements, etc. Whatever important event you have come up in your life, Basic Invite has the card to help you celebrate it.

Basic Invite will be offering recipients address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders during the 2016 season. So much value in this service! Free for the customer and it saves time.
