Yet Another Service Evite Should Take Notes From: Paperless Post

15May09

I am not a fan of Evite.  The problem is, almost everyone I know continues to use it even though there are so many other services out there that deserve a chance.  Here’s one.  Here’s another.  Oh, and yes, another.  Today I’m going to show you another great service that deserves some attention – Paperless Post allows you to create online invitations that resemble actual stationary.  The invites are highly customizable and your friends don’t need to sign up for anything in order to respond.

When your friends get the invite delivered to their inbox, they’ll be able to click on a clean, white envelope and the invite will pop out for them to read.  They can RSVP and, depending on the settings you used when creating your invite, they’ll be able to see who else is coming, who isn’t, and who hasn’t responded.

As the creator, you’ll be able to see who has opened the invite and not bothered to respond yet – just like Evite!

    Some things should just be done with fine stationery (the real kind) and leave digital replacements alone. Important invitations is one of those things.

  2. Molly, what an awesome demo. Thank you for creating it.

    Just a note to say that Paperless Post cannot deliver mail to AOL addresses which became a huge issue when I tried to use them for a family party. They don’t tell you upfront and I wouldn’t advise using them for a big event.

    I have tossed all of the paper invitations I have recieved in the past and I even annoyed at the volume of paper weddings and baby showers generate. I used paperless post to send out my wedding invitations to 90 people.
    I think they do a great job.
