Some all-in-one products just don’t work (I’m looking at you, shampoo/conditioner combos). But I have been loving this stationery company, Basic Invite, and their huge selection of customizable wedding stationery. They have it all: I’m talking wedding name cards, programs, guest books, menus, registry cards, save-the-dates, invitations, RSVPs, a free wedding website, and even wedding stickers! My favorite all-in-one product of theirs? The eco-friendly Seal and Send Wedding Invitation that is one part invitation, one part tear-off RSVP card, and one part envelope (that’s right, they even print the address on the back of the card so you just have to fold, seal and send!).
I’m always looking for companies to recommend to my wedding clients, as the sheer number of wedding vendors out there is just so overwhelming. I recommend finding companies that can tick off more than one box on your to-do list. After all, aren’t you busy enough already without planning a wedding??
Here are four attributes you should expect in any vendor before you commit:
Flexibility: Every company has its strengths, but they should be flexible enough to work in multiple environments. Basic Invite offers the traditional engagement and wedding stationery, but it also has tons of options for elopements, baby announcements, and milestones of every kind.
Free Samples: Be it your wedding cake or save-the-dates, you best be getting free samples before the big purchase. You have the option with Basic Invite to order just one sample of your customized product before committing to a whole box!
Customizable: You shouldn’t settle for whatever comes “off the shelf.” More and more of my clients are opting for non-traditional ceremonies, and there just aren’t pre-made products for spooky weddings or beer garden receptions. Basic Invite offers wedding invitation templates to browse, but also gives you the ability to customize every element of your product so it fits exactly with the feel you are going for.
Instant Online Previews: Have you ever seen those cake fails, in which something totally outrageous was printed onto a cake because someone had misheard the customer’s request? Yeah, that should never happen. That’s why you need to see a preview of your customized product before purchasing online. Basic Invite is one of the few stationary companies that provides you with an instant online preview of your customized product!
