I know that a few people have made this comment before but Paperless Post is a-mazingness!! I sent out an evite to my wedding party today using the free 25 invites you get for signing up and it has been great!
Heres the background: I rented a villa for our wedding and our wedding party & their guests are invited to stay at the villa for the weekend but i just wanted to get a rough head count so I could let the home owner know how many to expect (since the house sleeps 27 we need to know how much support staff we’ll need for the weekend).
Back to Paperless Post!
Design-wise: There are lots of great options and color options. Not to mention you can be pretty creative with the fonts. They have a pretty decent selection, which I adore. PLUS the invites come in envelopes which have great looking postage stamps on the outside and you can add envelope liners! Which of course I did!
The tracking page allows you to not only track the various responses and comments but to tell if your guests have OPENED the invite which I LOVE. I’ve had a tab open all day checking the responses and the kind messages people have posted. PLUS it’ll let you export all the information into a spreadsheet for easy use!
Best of all its super affordable and good for the environment!
Love Love Love.

That’s really cool, but I’m confused…do they just arrive via email and look exactly like a regular invite on your screen?

We used these for our STDs! Could NOT have been easier – we used a photo of us and designed the invite and it was so cheap and easy and fast. Decided to do it Saturday and the Save-The-Date Cards were out on Sunday.
@veganglam: The guests get what looks like an envelope in their inbox, with their name on it in nice writing (this was handy for us because we did it like ‘real mail’, one invite per couple but it said both their names on it). They click on the envelope and a new screen opens, they click on the envelope again and there’s an animation of the invite coming out of the envelope (you can even put envelope liners on), and then it looks like a real invite. Love it!

@veganglam: Yes, it actually simulates opening an envelope and everything on the screen.
I’m a paperhead so I’m going all out with paper invites, but if eco-consciousness outweighed my vanity, I’d do paperless post.

@JennyW1: hehehe. I totally agree! I definitely am going all out on my paper products so it was great to find a psuedo-wedding related reason to use these…
They also definitely feed the type-A organization freak in me 😀

I would worry about the people like me who go way too long without checking their email. Was that an issue at all?

Has anyone used the PAPER option on Paperless Post? I really like their designs, but being that they specialize in electronic invites, I’m curious how the quality of their paper is.

Yes it is, I also completely loved it!! I used it for sending STD’s and rehearsal dinner invites. For the rehearsal dinner I used it to track RSVP’s and it was so easy to do. For the STD’s I used it to request addresses. I used free designs but they turned out just how I wanted, and didn’t cost me a penny! Would HIGHLY recommend to all brides, or for any event/gathering. 🙂

Liz0808: The nice thing is it allows you to track each invite – you can see if it has been opened or not. I had one or two not open them, and the RSVP date was drawing near, so I just called/texted them to let them know there was an invite in their mailbox. 🙂 Because of the tracking feature, I don’t think you need to worry about that too much!
