I have an unhealthy obsession with stationery.
As a kid, I collected it by the bucketload. I had pen friends scattered around the globe (the most exotic location was Jamaica) and I spent all of my hard earned pocket money on pretty letter sets, stickers and glittery pens to give my letters that certain edge.
While I now shop at Kikki.K rather than Lisa Frank (does anybody remember that range? I was obsessed) the stationary hoarder in me is still alive and well. So when I was contacted by Paperless Post* to review their online products I positively jumped at the chance.
Paperless Post are an online service specialising in digital invitations and cards. It’s basically a virtual version of a physical invitation/card that you’d receive in the mail, except it is emailed or texted to recipients. They have a huge range of custom designs including Kate Spade and Rifle Paper Co, so there really is something there for everyone.
Once you sign up to Paperless Post, you buy coins which are then used as money to design and send your invitations. I was kindly gifted some coins and soon got to work designing my very own personalised cards.
The process is really simple. Simply pick the category that you are after (weddings, birthdays, bar mitzvahs etc), choose the design you like and then personalise it by changing the colours, fonts and backgrounds. You add your text in and voila! The last step is adding in the recipients of who you’re sending the invite too and it’s ready to send out.
Paperless Post also allow you to track who has opened the invite and whether they’re attending/declining the event. I really like this feature as it takes the guesswork out of figuring out whether someone has received the invite or not (and who is yet to reply!).
I admit that I am a bit old fashioned and prefer to receive physical invitations. However, they’re no denying in this modern age that we all basically live our lives through our phones and it is so much easier to respond via message or text than it is to post a letter. Paperless Post allows you the convenience and creativity to design, send and receive invitations at the touch of a button.
I decided to design my own personalised letterhead and absolutely love how it turned out!
I am super impressed with Paperless Post and plan to use it for my next event as it’s just so easy to use. I also love the huge range of beautiful designs offered and the option to customise each one just right. Plus, anything offering Kate Spade designs is bound to receive my vote!
Have you tried Paperless Post? What did you think?
Special thanks to Paperless Post for the collaboration!
