Table of Contents

Have you ever searched and searched for a descent company to get some modern business cards made? A website that is easy to use, filled with tons of options to personalize your business card, and an easy to view preview of your design? I have! I spent hours on other websites designing my own custom business card. Designing, redesigning, deleting, and starting from scratch. This wasn’t the case though with Basic Invite. They have many modern business card options to choose from and different ways to customize it to fit your business style.

Disclaimer: I have been compensated for this blog post and been given a set of business cards to review. All opinions however are my own. I custom designed my own business cards on the Basic Invite website and had a set sent out to me. This way I can provide to you the most honest review possible.There are affiliate links in this post.

Once you go to Basic Invite and go under the Stationery section you will see the business card option. Here you can scroll through their entire selection of modern business cards. This was the hardest part for me to be honest. They were all so beautiful. So many themes, templates, ideas, and different customization options such as font, colors, foil, and even type of paper. I decided to go with the Classic Photo Landscape Business Card. Personally, I wanted a business card that will show one of my favorite photos. I didn’t want to cramp too many pictures into one business card but instead have a simple yet captivating photographer business card that will show a little bit about who I am, my business, and my style of work. This is completely a personal decision so you can choose the business card that best fits you and your business. Best of all, the pricing is unremarkable. You can get 75 high quality business cards for as low as 0.17 cents each.

Designing your business card can be either fun or frustrating. To me it’s fun. I like to design things online constantly, Pinterest graphics, Instagram Story graphics, graphics for my shop, you name it. But business cards was frustrating with some websites. They wouldn’t work right for me. The website was slow, or the card didn’t look right, I couldn’t find the right color, or worse of all, I had a limited options on fonts. I mean who wants to use Times New Romans on all of their items?!

When I started designing my business card with Basic Invite I made sure to have my browser updated and everything worked smoothly. No lagging, limitations, you name it. Basic Invite provides you with tons of options to customize your photographer business card.

Almost Unlimited ColorsBasic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.

Foil – Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite‘s foil designs.

Paper – Each business card that Basic Invite has on their website has the option for you to choose which style paper you would like. They have seven different options from what I saw on some of the designs. Everything from signature matte to premium shimmer and even luxe velvet.


One of the best qualities that Basic Invite has is that they want all of their customers to be happy customers. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual product so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.


Once you have created your business card I highly recommend saving it under your account for future orders. This way if you order a sample you can always come back and make changes to it. I have two business cards saved under my account. Similar look, different front photo and one is landscape while the other one is vertical. I am happy I went with the landscape ones though. They came out very cute and the words don’t look as cramped. I do have a long business name and email address so the landscape style worked best for my business.


Basic Invite has many other options on their website as well to help you out on future events, invitations, announcements and more. Some of their other amazing features include:

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

Address Capturing Service – Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.
