Paperless Post Invitations

Next month is my birthday month. Since I’m a little girl I’ve always been looking forward to my birthday, to see my family again, eating cake and candy unlimited and of course… presents!! I LOVE it!
And recently I was thinking, I might even celebrate my birthday with friends this year. I never celebrated my birthday for friends but since we all live in different places in The Netherlands now, we barely see each other. Some people I haven’t even seen in 6 months because we all live our own lives now. Some are still studying Journalism but moved out of Ede (including me), others are doing their masters at a different university, others are already adulting and hunting for jobs.

And while thinking about sending out an invitation, Paperless Post* found me. Paperless Post is a website where you can customize invitations and sent them via email. Sending out a card can be as expensive as you want it to be. It starts with 2 coins, which is like paying for stamps when you sent a real card instead of digital, and the more you choose to change or redesign the more coins it will cost to send the card to the recipient.
Paperless Post has hundreds and hundreds of cards you can choose from and customize. Think about Tea Parties, weddings, birthday, new born cards, just whatever you can think off they have it. And you can change backgrounds, fonts, envelopes. Just everything. So it looks more personal than just a written email invitation. Paperless Post also have card ranges that are designed by Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Kate Spade, Meri Meri and Rifle Paper co. and many more. 

You can check out the designer range specifically or do what I did: searching for birthday cards and save the cards you like the most. And when it’s a card from a special designer it is written underneath. And so it turned out my family invitation card is from Happy Menocal (which is 8 coins per recipient). Look at how cute the card turned out!!
Now the invitation to my friends. I want to have a Tea Party since I’m a big tea lover and also in love with sweets and food. So it’s the best combination. And Paperless Post had a lot of designs but in the end I went for a normal design that is also 8 coins per recipient.

Isn’t this great? How lovely do the cards look? I totally love it. I’ve also seen that it is possible to sent out thank you cards. So when I’ve had my Tea Party I know for sure that I’ll sit down and design a thank you card. (even when they read about this on my blog.)

What I also love about this website is that, as the name says, this is Paperless. Good for the environment and also much more personal than just a boring email with the information written down. My friends all responded very excited to the invitation and loved the way it looked. So did my family!
