So when I received an offer to collaborate with Paperless Post I was intrigued. And when I checked out the website I was excited. This I believe is the answer to my problems - well maybe not all my problems but at least my problems relating to correspondence.
What is it? Everything from invitations to greeting cards to stationary just right for dashing out a note ranging from cute and quirky to clean and classically elegant. You can find invitations perfectly appropriate for a 1 year olds' birthday party as well as a professional looking fundraiser notice. There is stationary from designers like Kate Spade, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, and Rifle Paper Co all with fantastic choices as well as plenty of ways to customize it to suit the exact look you want.
How does it work? It kind of reminds me of those ecards that used to be very much a thing but way fancier and with way more options to personalize it. You can pick font and font color, select what the card says and the background of the card itself. It also allows for the recipient of the message to send one back to you. If you're creating an invitation it sets up an RSVP tracking form for you. All you have to do is know the email addresses of who it needs to go to. It isn't free but I didn't find it particularly unreasonable - especially if you consider how much good stationary/cards cost as well as stamps and time spent actually getting it ready to mail. For 20 cards it costs abut $20 total.
Since I know I'm rambling bit and this may be hard to visualize but to make it a bit easier I thought I could send everyone a card! Just leave your email in the comments and I'll send each person a personalized card depending on my level of quirkiness when I'm making my choices. Don't worry about getting bombarded by email from the Paperless Post site. I've sent multiple cards to just about everyone I know over the last few weeks and none of them have received any kind of email other than the one I sent. I hope you enjoy the card as much as I do!
