With love, from Joshua Tree
I’m a sucker for good looking stationery. For the past ten years I’ve been sending out hundreds of my own custom holiday cards each year. I love hand written greetings; getting a snail mail thank you or note is always heart-warming. Customizable online print shop, Basic Invite, will get you excited to send out invites, announcements, postcards, even business cards! I took my beautifully made Basic Invite samples to Joshua Tree for a little feature in the desert.
Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card (as in the multiple shades of pinks that I chose) to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the announcements are exactly how you want it down to the smallest detail.
The Bohemian Bunnie personalized stationery is one of my favorite samples that I ordered. The perfect little size notecard for a quick thought or thank you.
I remember the days when birthday invites were with either printed with Print Shop (not photo shop but it’s predecessor of extremely pixilated clip art) or whatever happened to be the current trend in cartoon character designs at the time. We’ve come quite a way with being able to design birthday invitations. I even uploaded my own art for one of my invites.
This photograph was from the very first photo shoot that Ashley and I did three years ago in the dry lake bed of Las Vegas. It’s such a beautiful shot that works so well on a card. Basic Invite did a fantastic job with the quality of printing.
I love the templates for business cards. As far as design, I literally did not change a thing on this card. Simple, feminine and to the point.
Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
