Paperless Post

Have 90% of the invitations and announcements you received lately come via email instead of the USPS? Me too. It's a fact of life. So I'm doing my best to embrace it. Here are the prettiest e-invitations I've come across. By Paperless Post (still in beta, I should add).

As a recipient, the first thing you see is a lovely envelope that looks like it's made of a nice cotton-heavy paper stock. When you click the envelope, the flap opens (often the envelope is lined) and the pretty invitation slips out. Kind of lovely all the way around.

For birth announcements, event invitations or moving announcements. They offer lots of papers, ink colors, accent graphics and fonts. A graphic designer could have a hey day messing around with the options — not that I would know.

these are fantastic. i have loved seeing alternatives to evite the last couple years. but i'm trying not to grieve about fewer invitations by mail. it's good to be green, right?

This is so pretty, but I will always be a sucker for the printed baby announcement in the mail.

Gorgeous and completely perfect for the paper lover who is transitioning into paperless!

This also may be the ONLY WAY that I get my change-of-address cards out - thanks for the info! CANNOT WAIT to get started!
