The following post is sponsored by Paperless Post. I received free coins to purchase online cards. However, all opinions are my own.
I will let you in on a small secret. I have an issue and I always have. I love to shop for cards. Filling them out also gives me joy. Mailing them out…It never happens. I have thrown away in my lifetime at least hundreds of Christmas cards, birthday cards, invitations and more. I don’t know what it is I just never seem to get them mailed out. I am terrible at it.
Less than six months ago my grand baby had her second birthday party. I designed invitations so painstakingly and once again they sat. Wasted, time, ink, money all down the drain. I do always revert back to a phone call or an email just because it was more simple.
Then as a blogger, I was approached to review Paperless Post. I was intrigued because I remember the cards online back in the day. They were always full of spam for both the sender and the receiver or highly expensive.
So I poked around on their site some before I decided to tell you all about it and I was pleasantly surprised. The cards are trendy and highly customizable. They didn’t look silly. I would not be ashamed to email one to anyone.
So I decided to mail one just to test it out. I emailed my husband a belated birthday card. I was able to choose a card, change the font and even what it said. I was also able to pick a background the card was showed on. The stamp for the envelope and the liner for the envelope as well. Then I simply added his email and away it sent.
He got it almost instantly and said that he thought it was pretty cool.
I have a baby shower coming up in a couple months and you can bet that I will be sending out 20 or so invitations through Paperless Post. Hey, I’m savings some steps and some trees! It is win-win all the way around.
I also realized that you could get printed versions of their cards and invitations. Though for me digital seems to be the key. There is a charge for the cards. It cost me six coins to mail my card out using premium options. When I started my account they started me out with 30 free coins. I looked and you can buy a twenty pack of “coins” for $6.00 personally for me that is a savings since the person the card is intended for will get it.
So if you are like me or just prefer digital because of its ease of use checkout https://www.paperlesspost.com/cards/group/birthday-cards
