Creating a Birth Announcement with Basic Invite

With the new baby on the way, part of my preparing is taking a look at birth announcements. When our new addition is finally here, I’ll have way too much on my plate to decide exactly which birth announcement to choose. Part of picking now is choosing the layout, the colors, the fonts- it’ll make life easier when all I need to do is add the photo and information. With Basic Invite, making invitations and announcements are easy and take just minutes to do. And if this wasn’t our fourth baby, Basic Invite would be our go-to place where to buy baby shower invitations as well!

Here are just a few of my favorite features that make Basic Invite different than other card companies:

Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic 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.


Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.


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.

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.

Another great thing about Basic Invite? They have a wonderful selection of coed baby shower invitations for any modern day baby shower experience.

There are so many layouts to choose from, more colors to pick from than you could imagine, and a numerous amount of fonts to choose from as well! To get a good idea of how the birth announcement would look, I went ahead and created an announcement for Jackson, even though he’s already two years old. 😉

I’m so happy with how the birth announcement looks and how easy the process was. Along with baby shower invites and birth announcements, you can also creates invites for weddings, birthdays, and other special events. The options are limitless and your creativity can just spiral to the most perfect, custom invitations and stationary for you!
