I am a card girl. I have a drawer FULL of paper cards. Sometimes finding the perfect card is NOT easy. Or, the selection for certain occasions is very limited. I buy these little treasures not only when an occasion is on the horizon, but when I come across them. The perfect card that reminds me of someone, or, simply because I loved the message and knew I wanted to share it.
The drawback to purchasing cards so far before an occasion is that I have, at times, completely forgotten about them! Another challenge, I’m sorry to say, is our postal service. I write and postcards at least one week before an occasion, and still, they have sometimes arrived late, or are not delivered at all!
Paperless post is an online source for ANY CARD, INVITATION, OR FLYER you could possibly need. And, some you don’t need that are fun to send anyways.
HOW IT WORKS
The first step is to create an account by entering an email address and creating a password. You purchase ‘coins’ from Paperless Post, and each card costs a certain number of coins. The coin price (per recipient) is based on the options you have chosen. Options include envelope liners and card inserts; these can be added or removed. Coin packages can be purchased when you are ready to send your post.
CHOOSE YOUR DESIGN
Once your account is activated, you can select the occasion you need a card for, or browse the categories for general inspiration. You can even click on, and save the designs you like, to your ‘favorites’ folder (it’s indicated by a heart icon).
Each of these categories has sub-categories! Like I said, any card. And the best part – you can create your cards or invitations right from your home office. No need to drive from shop to shop looking at cards.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN
Once you have determined the category of your occasion, select a template and have fun trying different layout options. Paperless Post is a playground for those who love to create, and a great place for those needing inspiration and direction. You can change many elements of your design: backgrounds, colours, fonts, envelope styles. You can even choose a stamp design.
INCLUDED IN THE COLLECTION ARE CREATIONS FROM DESIGNERS SUCH AS KATE SPADE!
Having recently moved, my husband and I decided we would like to have some friends over to help us celebrate and check out the new place. I selected ‘Housewarming party invitations’ and was immediately directed to the relevant pages of options.
We have a custom-made bar in our home, so I searched (yes, you can), specifically for cards with ‘bar’ themes. Photo cards are also an option within all categories to add a personal touch.
MANAGE YOUR EVENT
Event page settings allow you to show your guest list and add a comment wall.
We’re so excited to see everyone and show you our new little spot in the country.
Please leave a message on the comment wall!
Include additional information for your guests:
A buffet of salad items and cold appetizers will be served, as well as beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages.
Please park vehicles along the side of the driveway.
Housewarming gifts are unnecessary. If you must bring something, please consider food for the birds, a song to share with them, or a plant for the land.
Here is another example I created:
I was delighted to see the many vintage-inspired artworks included in the collection!
The only difficulty I experienced was having to make a decision!
