It’s that time of year once again folks, and I am here for it!
The wondrous magic usually begins throughout the week of Thanksgiving… Trickling into my life, building from there, and lasts all through the festive month of December. Sometimes it even happens after December 25th - due to those who may have procrastinated just a bit.
What is this mysterious magic I speak of? Christmas Cards - of course.
Merry Christmas Cards! Happy Holiday Cards! Hanukkah Cards. Happy New Year Cards. Invitations to Holiday Parties… Corporate Holiday Greeting Cards. The list can go on and on, cards of all kinds - including cheap holiday photo cards as well.
Top off all that holiday cheer with a stamp in the upper right-hand corner, and you’re good to go. All this wonder and love coming through the mail, sealed with a kiss, a lick, or a peel-and-stick. And these joyful cards are set to bring some holiday magic to a cherished loved one - whether they be a distant family member, a close cousin, a beloved friend, treasured colleague, or a much-appreciated client.
In this intensely and increasingly digitized world, there truly is something magical about receiving a physical card in the mail today. In the year 2023, when everything can be transcribed to another in a millisecond through the internet, every paper card I receive in the mail is cherished by me beyond measure.
And yet, even though the whole globe has gone through this massive digital, technological revolution, in which we all are currently a part of and living through as it happens in real time - merry christmas cards and holiday cards have remained a traditional staple of the entire holiday season. There truly are some things in this world that do not have a digital - and touchless - replacement.
I sincerely believe that a holiday greeting card, sent with love, cannot be replaced by an email, text, tweet, or a thread. And the joy and happiness in my heart each time I open my mail box this month is not produced because of some catalog loaded with electronic gadgets for sale, the latest toys and DVDs, and clothes that are on my wish list. But from the infamous look and feel of a holiday card - sent to me from someone I love.
And you know the feeling as soon as you see it. Oh goodie… It’s not another bill! Lol. No, you know it right away - THIS is a holiday card. You can feel it in your hand… And you can feel it in your heart.
But what you also feel physically in your fingers is the peel-and-seal, or the glistening, golden foil, bordering and protecting your heart-felt greeting. A greeting surrounded in detailed color and beauty, with potential for 180 different colors as well. And with 40 choices of envelopes, all these details may not be front of mind, as your heart receives this cup of holiday cheer.
But because I do love Christmas cards so very much, I am aware in the back of my mind that each card I hold in my hand was sent to me with a boatload of forethought - every detail tended to on the backend, customized by the sender, with love.
And believe it or not, with the cost of everything under the sun rising like crazy, there’s still a way in this very expensive world to buy and send Happy Hanukkah Cards, Merry Christmas cards, glistening Holiday cards, or that extra special touch - a photo card. So definitely check out Basic Invite at https://www.basicinvite.com/. They offer a wide array of festive cards to choose from, including cheap holiday photo cards.
With almost unlimited colors to choose from, once a customer selects their card design with Basic Invite, they can then go ahead and change any color on every element of the card. With such a wide variety of colors to choose from, their holiday greeting is certain to be everything they’ve dreamed their card could be. This color selection process is what sets Basic Invite apart from almost every other online stationery company out there today.
As an added bonus, you know that physical touch I was telling you about earlier? Well, Basic Invite really stands out from the crowd on this one. Customers can order a printed sample of their actual Christmas card, greeting card, or holiday photo card. This act of allowing the customer to place a custom sample order really empowers the buyer to physically sample their work product in hand, in real life… To actually see the paper quality, and study the look and feel of the greeting card in their hands, before they go ahead and place their final card order.
And beyond the 180 color choices within the card itself, Basic Invite does have 40 envelope colors to choose from. So, not just your basic white, cream, or red and green. Which allows you to truly customize the holiday card from start to finish, close to open.
As an added bonus, for that extra special glimmer and shimmer, Basic Invite has a selection of foil. Now this is one of those things that really seal the deal for me when choosing a stationary company… Add on some shine, and texture, and it really catches my eye! I know I love receiving foil embellished cards, and I think it’s because they truly stand above the rest of the mail I open. It’s that ‘real feel’ - extra touch, that sort of sparkles, but not too brightly. It’s kind of like pixie dust - without the messy dust of a glitter bomb.
Well, at least that’s what I call ‘em, anyway. Hey - You know you’ve got to admit that you’ve received one of those glitter disasters before, haven’t ya? Oh wait - maybe you’re the one who sends glitter cards each and every year? Umm. Well, in that case…
I’ll be moving along now.
So - I can’t forget to tell you about the great deal they’ve got going on right now. Basic Invite really wants you to try them out this holiday season. They’ve got a special deal happening right now, where customers can save 15% off their order. Just use Coupon Code 15FF51 to receive this sweet deal.
And, last but certainly not least, we all must consider that final step of sending out our cards into the world, and with that I mean the mail service. They’ve got you covered here as well. Are you dreading sitting down to address all your envelopes, by hand? Maybe your printer is out of ink. Yeah, I feel ya. Basic Invite even offers an Address Capturing Service. Address Capture allows customers to share a link on their social media, whether it be on Facebook, Instagram, X, or any of your other favorite socials, to request friends and families’ contact information. When your contacts reply, that information is stored in the customer's account with Basic Invite, and can be selected during the card design process. Recipient address printing is a feature Basic Invite includes at no cost with all card orders.
So, definitely go ahead and browse through their lovely collection of cards to choose from at Basic Invite for this holiday season 2023. Whether your mood this year is more traditional or modern, ‘funky’ or silly, or shiny and sparkly, there is certainly something to fit everybody’s taste and style. And don’t forget to use Coupon Code 15FF51 to save an extra 15% off your order.
But most importantly, let’s simply keep that age-old tradition alive and well this year. As 2023 draws to its closing act and finale, I know I’ll be sending out Christmas cards this year, wishing all I know and love a Merry Christmas, a Happy Holiday, and a very Joyous New Year. And that sincere wish extends to all those countless millions and billions, out there in the land of the internet - reading this online right now, living out there in this fast-paced, increasingly digital world we have all grown accustomed to… That holiday wish, and cup of good cheer, is sent to YOU too!
P.S. Dear Santa, I would really prefer if you didn’t send any coal my way this year. And while you’re at it, don’t send me any glitter either. Thank you! ~
