How to Save Money and Time with Paperless Post

This is a crazy time of year!

Spring starts and so do the Spring events! Mother's Day, Graduation, weddings, end of the school year....so many things to plan and only so much time to plan

Most people have a better contact list in their email than can be found in their paper address book.

I am taking this opportunity to try Paperless Post. They asked me if I would like to try out their event announcements and since I have one graduating high school in just a few weeks and I am always behind,  it seemed the perfect time to give it a go! They provided some coins for me to put these announcements to the test.

The results are pretty incredible!




The variety Paperless Post has to offer is amazing! It does not matter if you are looking for baby announcements, parties, high school or college graduations, they have them all!

They even have a few free options ( you all know that FREE is my FAVORITE four letter F -word!)!

For last minute parties ( like Cinco de Mayo), you cannot get faster than this adorable invite and instantly send it out to your full contact list to join you for some salsa, guacamole and maybe a margarita!





I let my mind wander...

Back to graduation.

Paperless post has the perfect variety to make even the pickiest teen or college graduate happy!

If Rifle Paper Co. is your style ( you know who you are 😉) there are even Rifle Paper Co. designs available!



And all the better when you can customize it with a photo!

If you know anything about my family, you know that they are unconventional, wacky and kind of a walking sitcom ( the kids words...not mine)!

The in house teen refused outright to have a typical senior photo taken. Seriously, she cannot stand that sort of thing. So when I was thinking about the best choice for her cards, I was trying to convince her of taking a new photo but then remembered that I already have an image that captures her best and one that she would not hate for all time.

Here is the original photo that was taken at a pumpkin patch here in VA one fall. It may be my most favorite photo of these two kids! The shot was accidental but captured the scene perfectly.  It looks like it was completely staged for a album cover!



I cropped the image of her to suit my needs and added it into the card! I sent a copy to Katy and shew loves it! It is precisely what she had envisioned!



This is perfect for my unconventional girl! The ability to customize the Paperless Post to suit your style is a big bonus!

Cards are not complete without an envelope.  Every card has an envelope that is lovely on the inside. 


After you design your note, invitation or announcement,  it is a breeze to add your guest list and hit the GO button! They even have a place to help you keep track of all of your events!

They have thought of everything, which is good since some of us ( ME!) can be absent minded!


I even found a flyer section! Want to invite a slew of sewing friends over for a fun day?  No worrying about trying to get everyone on the phone and organized!

Make it fast, pretty and practical!


 Then add your guests and make it go WOOSH!


I am sure I will be using this site for so many more events now that I know

1. How easy it is
2. That I can customize it to my liking
3. That it is a great last minute way to organize events ( this may need to go up to number 1!) 
4. All of the organizing after the emails are sent out is all in one place

You know you have tons of events coming up too! I hope you will give Paperless Post a try to create, customize and share your event!

This looks like such a fun way to make up invitations.

I feel like an idiot. Although the name is Paperless, it took me a while poking around to be sure it is purely electronic. Certainly more eye-catching than some e-vites I've seen, and a fun idea for the right occasion. Thanks for sharing this.
