Cosmopolitan Closets Product Review: Basic Invite!

Hi everyone, Happy Friday!  I am so excited to share this post with you today.  The sweet folks at Basic Invite reached out to me and I jumped at the chance to partner with them on this post.  If you know me or have been reading my blog for awhile and/or following me on social media, then you probably know how much I love stationery- cards, notepads, journals, you name it, I love it.  You may also know that I just wrapped up my wedding season (got married in October 2018) and I am sure you are well aware that all the events involve stationery of some sort.
Besides weddings, graduation season is right around the corner (check out their selection of graduation commencement invitationsprincess graduation invitations, and graduation party invitations) and now is the perfect time to take a look at what Basic Invite has to offer.  So for starters, Basic Invite is one of the few websites that offers over 180 different color options so that you can customize your invite down to the smallest detail.

In addition to the wide range of colors, Basic Invite also allows you to order customized samples - did you hear me - customized samples!  This is such an amazing feature and I wish I knew about Basic Invite when I was doing my wedding save the dates and invitations.  These customized samples allow you to create your design and then order one so that you can see if the design on the computer comes to life once its printed!


If you still aren't convinced, Basic Invite also has over 40 different color envelopes that you peel and seal (goodbye to the nasty "lick the envelope" taste in your mouth lol).  They also offer an address capturing service, which I found to be a really unique feature - instead of inputting all the addresses yourself, you can share a link via social media (FB, Twitter, Instagram) that allows your guests to input their own addresses, which is then saved in your Basic Invite account for future use.  I mean, it really doesn't get any better than that?  (I think it might - they also offer foil cards in silver, gold and rose gold, which was a must have for me!)

Naturally, I wanted to go through the process of ordering a sample and customizing a business card in order to get the full experience.  Check out my pictures and review below of the products that I ordered and when you head over to the Basic Invite website, don't forget your 15% off coupon code - 15FF51.

When I saw this clear business card, I knew it was time to order a new one for my business!  I love the look and feel of it and there were so many layouts to chose from.  Customizing my business card was easy and the hardest thing was selecting which design I wanted.

My Experience
1. The website is simple and easy to use. There is a vast variety of designs and layouts that you can choose from.

2. The vast amount of colors available makes it fun to design a truly customized product.

3. The order took about 2 days to ship and arrived 4 days prior to the estimated shipping date - this is great because I am super impatient when ordering customized anything (I am anxious to see and feel it).

4. I love the idea of a customized sample.  I am going to keep mentioning this, lol.  When we ordered our save-the-dates, invitations and thank yous for our wedding, I would have LOVED a sample prior to biting the bullet.  If only we could go back in time, lol, but now that I know about Basic Invite, I will be sure to order samples from them from now on.

Here are my new clear business cards (had to blur out my telephone number)!  I absolutely love them.  The weight of the card is good, not to thick and not too flimsy.  The information printed shows up well, I just can't wait to hand them out!

In addition to ordering a new set of CLEAR business cards (I am just so excited about that), I also got to order a custom sample note card that I want for handwritten thank yous to my clients.  It comes in this cute packaging.  What I love even more is the coupon code they send along with your sample - you can easily apply this to your customized order!

I absolutely love my customized note card sample.  The weight of the paper is thick and I love the rounded edges (customized feature).  The envelope has a nice weight as well, which I really appreciate because nothing is worse than a flimsy, thin envelope.  I cannot wait to place an order for these today!  

I hope that I inspired you to customize your next invitations through Basic Invite, be it for a graduation, baby shower, wedding or birthday!  While this post was sponsored by the company, the views and opinions expressed are mine and are solely based on the quality of the products I received and my overall experience during the order process.
