I love receiving greeting cards but I feel really guilty when I recycle them, like I’m throwing out of all the senders well wishes. I also tend to forget to buy them in time and often find myself standing in the greeting card aisle at Walgreen’s while running late for a birthday dinner. Using Paperless Post has been a serious time saver for me. I once tried to Amazon Prime Now a greeting card – true story.
At first I was skeptical that Paperless Post would be an acceptable alternative to actually sending a card, but once I saw the quality of the e-cards, I changed my mind. Beautiful greeting cards and invitations are just a click away, making it no longer necessary to pay attention to your calendar far enough in advance to actually go buy them.
I also love the ability to customize the print inside the envelope, as well as the message on the front of the card and the background.
The Paperless Post platform is super user friendly, you browse for a card that you like, customize with fonts and backdrops, enter an email address, and send.
A ton of my friends have used Paperless Post for wedding invitations, which come with handy tools like guest messaging and RSVP tracking. I have received many a lovely invitation this way.
I will say that there is a time and a place for a paper card. When I attend weddings, I still prefer to give a physical card, with a little something tucked in for the bride and groom. But for friends far and wide, I do find it much nice to send an e-card than a belated Facebook message (when I get around to logging on).
How do you feel about e-cards?
