After every holiday, birthday, occasion or special event I write thank you notes. Just a little token of appreciation and also a confirmation that I received the gift that was sent. Almost everything is digital now and while it’s super efficient it lacks that special something. Part of me doesn’t mind, another part of me misses looking for cute stationery. With Paperless Post I combine the two.
Let’s talk about Paperless Post
Paperless Post is a site and app that specializes in digital and printed stationery designed by the likes of Kate Spade (main draw for me), Johnathan Adler, Oscar de la Renta and Rifle Paper Co. It makes combining darling designs with effortless stationery easy.
How it works
First, create an account on Paperlesspost.com
It’ll lead you to the design page where you can edit the text and background. There’s also an ‘other options’ dropdown where you can add logos and motifs, if you click on it it’ll show hundreds of different design elements that you can add to your card (you can also send them your own logo!)
This time I went for just text.
When you hit the next button, it’ll lead you to the response card design. Enter the information you want. (they have RSVPs, Save the dates, general responses and more!)
After all that, hit the next button then enter the e-mail address you want to send the cards to. (I uploaded emails I gathered from my email list.) It also has a send me a free test feature if you want to see how it looks when it’s sent.
You can choose to ‘send now’ or schedule. I chose schedule and this is what comes up:
Overall, the process is so easy and so streamlined. The styles are gorgeous and the fact that there are designer collections is the best (I mean, Kate Spade!?).
Some of the designs are free, some cost some coins. When you sign up you get 20 coins, 10 more if you sign in on the app, 10 is you sign up with FB, 5 if you like them on FB and 5 if a friend signs up using your personal link. BTW-here is mine!
If you sign up (and you totally should) explore your dashboard, account settings, post box, address book and of course all their designs.
Would you try/have you used digital stationery?
P.S. most of their edible text is from The Great Gatsby so that also gets the stamp of approval in my book.
