Meet Basic Invite
Usually my blog posts are centered around solo female entrepreneurs. Today’s is a little different. I worked with Basic Invite to capture some of their designs. Basic Invite is a stationary company based out of Utah, with a small and passionate team. There are a few things that make them different:
Almost Unlimited Colors - 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 they feel sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what they feel is their biggest draw.
Custom Samples - Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order. You can test out their 2-sided graduation invitations as samples before you order them! I went through the process of ordering samples for the items I photographed and it was easy!
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes - Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their 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 their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.
Address Capturing Service - Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.
Foil - Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
About Our Product Session
I had the pleasure to photograph a number of different products for Basic Invite. From university graduation party invitations to social invites, I had a lot of fun capturing their designs. My personal favorites to shoot, however, were the business cards. As a business owner, business cards are an area of curiosity for me. I love to see how creative entrepreneurs can get when marketing their business. Plus, as someone who specializes in supporting female entrepreneurs, I wanted to test out their business cards for my clients. They have several designs, many tailored to specific occupations. I personally enjoyed their clear business cards - talk about unique! I’d happily recommend these to any of my clients.

Normally for my personal branding sessions with female entrepreneurs they share words of wisdom. For this session, I thought you may enjoy a coupon code instead.
