What made you start your business?
While planning his own wedding, the owner realized there weren’t many options for wedding invitations. Not to mention whatever was available was unavailable to sample – so, there was no room for error of any kind. It was a bit frustrating so he decided to start Basic Invite which would give brides and grooms not only options, but customization options, too.
What sort of geographical area do you cover?
Basic Invite serves all 50 states as well as Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
How would you describe your style?
Our style is unique because we have so many options and all of them are customizable. We like to carry a wide variety of styles and themes including, modern, vintage, rusty, typography, photo, classic, and more. We work with designers all over the globe in order to gain as much diversity and perspective as possible in our designs so that we can offer something our customers haven’t seen before while still being timeless and customizable with each.
What is your biggest achievement so far?
Our biggest achievement is our instant preview technology. The fact that our customers can change the color on every aspect of the card and see an instant preview of that change has been such an achievement for us. We are one of the few online stationery company’s with these abilities and amenities and it’s a feature we are very proud of!
What makes you different from your competitors?
Our endless customization options set us apart from our competitors for sure! With over 180 color options and 200 wedding invitation sets and counting we offer so much diversity that we are able to please customers with any type of style or taste. We also offer custom samples of the actual invitation our customers will be purchasing before they make their final order. This gives them the opportunity to see exactly what they are paying for and make any changes to their invitations before purchasing in full.
What sort of couples do you attract?
We attract all sorts of couples! Since we are an international company we attract people from all walks of life. Young couples, older couples, LQBTQ couples, and everything in between! We are an online only company so, our customers are able to go through this process in the comfort of their own home without ever having to interact with anyone unless of course, they want to! We feel this creates a sense of ease for our customers which opens up the door for any and all individuals! We love seeing diversity in our customers and in the products they choose. It is fun to see what everyone comes up with.
Can you give me some information on your pricing structure?
Our prices vary and depend more on how much you order than anything else. Our wedding invitations start as low as $0.99 and our other wedding stationery starts even lower! It is really up to our customers how much they are willing and able to spend. All of our products are customizable and have upgrade options like the shape of the card or the type of paper. The more you order the cheaper each invitation gets.
Basic Invite has had a very exciting year! We have a handful of new additions to our site that we are extremely excited about! We recently rolled out our gold and silver foil invitations which people are loving! We just came out with our new line of customizable guest books where you can match your guest book with your wedding suite or upload a photo to use as your cover – they are to die for. And our most recent addition, our Real Wood Invitations. These are just days old and we are really looking forward to what our customers think of them.
