Hello all. This post may be a little off-topic (no books this time) but I hope it will still be of interest. I was recently offered a chance to try out Paperless Post. If you haven’t heard of Paperless Post, it is a website that offers premium electronic greeting cards, invitations, and more. They have everything from free electronic cards to designer (Kate Spade and Rifle Paper for example) collections. Premium cards and extras like envelope liners and special backgrounds can be purchased using coins.
If you choose to purchase premium cards or add extra features like the envelope liner, you can purchase packs of coins for as little as $5 US.
My Dad’s birthday is today (happy birthday Dad!), so I decided to send a card to try the service. I found one that fit his personality and then had fun adding a custom envelope liner and background to match. I was very happy with the result – I know an electronic card isn’t the same as opening a physical card, but the presentation does a nice job of mimicking opening an envelope to read the card.
They also do flyers (which I think I will be using for my husband’s next art & craft show) which look great for advertising an upcoming event, and there are invitations which allow you to see who has viewed and accepted right from your dashboard.
Overall I was very pleased with my experience. While there may be several sites with electronic cards available, I found the selection of cards to be unique, and I will definitely be using Paperless Post again in the near future.
Be sure to check them out – as I mentioned earlier, there are free card options so you can give them a try before deciding if you’d like to purchase a pack of coins to use.
NOTE: I was provided with a number of coins to use on the Paperless Post website to try the service and share my experience with you. This in no way influenced my review. The opinions expressed here are my own!
