Paperless Post is an online service that enables you to send Online Invitations to events like weddings, birthdays, parties, etc. You can also send Online greeting cards, wishes, and more using this website.
While some cards and invitations are available for free, others come with premium designs/features like envelopes, envelop liners, backdrops, custom stamps, etc. that require Paperless Post Coins which can be purchased online on their website.
For events, you can customize the pre-designed cards with your own text, fonts, colors, etc. You can even add a photo on the cards that support this feature.
The best thing I found about event invitations is, you can keep track of the delivery (sent, opened) for each recipient and you can also keep track of how many people are actually coming (RSVP). There is an events page that will be populated with your guest names who opt to come, and there is a comment wall that enables them to write their own wishes, comments, etc. – facebook style.
While designing an invite for testing, I found two limitations: After I add an email address, there is no way to delete it if I change my mind later on. Also, I am not able to add videos or music to any of the cards. Otherwise, the design, delivery and tracking process on this website is very easy to use.
So next time you’re about to organize an event or wish someone on their special day, do remember Paperless Post. Just come back and look at the beginning of this blog post for the link 🙂
