The Next Generation of Thank You Notes with Paperless Post

by - April 25, 2019

When was the last time you mailed an invitation? What about a thank you note? Do you even remember? If you can't, don't feel bad. The world has moved permanently into a digital age. Other than taking birthday invitations to pass out to the kids in Alexis's class at daycare, the last time I mailed an invitation was back in 2012 for my wedding. The last time I sent hand-written thank you's was in 2015 for baby gifts.

Everything has moved online these days, whether you're creating an event on Facebook or sending invitations through email. That's where Paperless Post comes in. The company offers online invitations, cards and flyers. In this post I'll share how I used the site and what I thought of the service.

This post is sponsored by Paperless Post. I received free coins to use on in exchange for a post. All opinions are my own.

We celebrated Alexis's birthday at the first of the month. We bought paper invitations to pass out to her friends at daycare and made a Facebook event for everyone else. When Paperless Post approached me about trying out their service, I immediately decided to send our guests thank you cards.

The site is easy to use. You create an account with your email, Google account, or Facebook account. There are lot of categories to choose from - birthday, graduation, wedding, parties, professional, greetings, and flyers.

Once you pick your category, you pick from dozens of designs or you can upload your own finished design. You can narrow things down by color, shape, number of photos, price, and designer. You can upload photos, edit the text, background and envelope. Invitations include RSVP's, and you can include gifs on some designs.

Once you're satisfied with the design, you enter the email addresses of the people you want to send them to and click send. If you forget someone, no problem. You can go back and add more later. Once your recipients get their card, it'll open with a small animation and they can send you a response.

If digital cards just aren't your thing, there are also paper designs you can have printed.

Now for the cost. Most designs start out free. Customized backgrounds start out at one coin. Your total cost will be the number of coins your finished card comes to multiplied by the number of people you send it to. Coins come in bundles. You can get 25 for $10, 100 for $20, and 1,000 for $100.

In conclusion, Paperless Post is an easy, creative, and fun way to send personalized invitations and thank you's without making a trip to the post office. It's even got great options for professionals that I'm considering using in the future.
