Unique Wedding Invitations: Basic Invite
I clicked through to their site and started playing around with all the possibilities. Come to find out there are more 180 colors and you can apply them to all the elements on the card, rather than being tied to a pre-designed color scheme. The envelopes come in a bunch of colors too and you can add gold or silver foil lining, which is always a fun touch.
There are so many designs available, but I love sans serif fonts so I mostly searched the “modern” and “simple” themes to help me narrow things down. You can change the fonts, but I wanted to start with a style that was really close to what I wanted so I could mostly focus on color selection. I probably played around with different color options for a *little* too long before I settled on the colors to order for my sample, but I’m really happy with how they came out. As you can see, I had a little bit of fun with the names above! Ha!
I really liked that there’s an option to order a single sample print and envelope. Especially when you’re playing around with so many colors, it’s nice to be able to see how they print before you commit to a large order.
Not only was I able to change the background and font colors, but I was also able to change the colors of the cactuses and even the flower on the cactus (left). I noticed myself taking chances I wouldn’t have if were committing to 25+ prints–and of course these weren’t for my own wedding–so I really enjoyed using color in a bold way.
I ended up liking one of the envelopes better with a different invitation than I intended it for and I would not have expected that if I hadn’t seen the colors in person. There’s always a difference between how colors appear on screen and in person!
The Minimal Print Wedding Invitations design (above left) immediately jumped out to me as something I could go really bold with and I love how the Saffron yellow came out! When I was searching the unique save the dates for the perfect suite to design in complementary colors I knew that the line details on the Minimal Type Save-The-Date Cards would be so much fun paired with a matching envelope. Both of these designs and all the others, from what I could tell, are available as save the dates and invitations so can use a consistent design throughout all your paper goods.
I had so much fun playing with these designs–on screen and in front of my camera! If you’re looking for more inspiration, check out Basic Invite on Instagram and Pinterest! In additional to full wedding invitation suites and day-of wedding paper goods, they also create invitations for other events, stationery and fun printables like their coasters for wedding favors.
