Paperless Post | Do online invitations really work?

I’m not going to lie, the idea of not wasting paper in cards and invitations tick a lot of boxes here. I’m not very keen on spending time queuing at the post office. Besides, it seems flexible, practical and environmentally friendly.

The online invitation is a reality that promises us to save time, money and paper. It’s quite simple to understand. Instead of sending it by post, it’s all can be sent by email at home, with no extra hustles and bustles. But isn’t too good to be true?

I’m glad to be invited by Paperless Post to review their services and see if it’s a big deal or a big fail.


How does it work?

The service is quite straight forward. I have received some virtual “coins” to purchase the cards and invitations directly from the website. From a baby shower to a wedding celebration; there are lots of designs to go for.


First impressions

It’s easy to navigate at the website. As soon as you pick your favourite design, card or invitation, you can customise them adding some different backdrops, or chose different types of envelopes as well. The possibilities are huge!


Before sending them to your guest list, you can check all details and make more changes. I like the idea of adding a link to the google maps that showing the venue where your event will be placed. The wonders of having a virtual card or invitation.



Paperless Post offers a huge variety of designs to use in every single special occasion. They work with world-wise famous designers and lifestyle brands such as Kate Spade New York, Oscar de La Renta, Liberty Fabrics and Rifle Paper Co.


These range of patterned textiles definitely makes the service more creative, elegant and more exciting.


Paperless Post also offers flyers with more professional designs (for free). It means you can also be more creative and interactive when posting events on social media.

Overall experience

I do usually send cards anymore because I do think we need to stop reducing waste. In this case, a paperless card would be a perfect answer to when I do need to drop a celebration invitation, for example. I would use Paperless Post to spread words about my website’s events, for example.


I had fun creating an invitation for potential parties and meeting ups that I want to share with my readers. I also will use the cards to send special wishes to my closest friends. I guess this service makes your special occasion more intimate.


I love the idea of using Kate Spade designed card to send my twin nieces a gorgeous card celebrating their 5th birthday this week. It’s just a joy! As they live in Brazil, I can send an e-card with the guarantee that it will be delivered on time.

I would recommend Paperless Post to friends and family that don’t have too much time to spend when putting together a business event or a personal celebration. It’s definitely an Eco-friendly service to give it a try. So, yes. It’s a match!
