Product Review: Paperless Post

These days we pretty much do everything online. Most people always have their phones or laptop with them and have access to the internet 24/7. So it's really no big surprise that we can also get online invitations, thank you notes, and greetings through email now. Being able to send out wedding invitations, birthday invitations and thank you notes without having to buy all the supplies and assemble them at home and then hit the post office to mail them out is really convenient. So when I was contacted about doing a review of the Paperless Post online invitations, I was more than happy to do it and be able to pass along this helpful website to my readers. 

Some of the kids birthday invitations are super cute. Here's just 2 of them but they have a lot more on their site. They have cards for just about any occasion you can think of.

They have a lot of different card designs to choose from and then you can customize them. Each card will cost you a number of coins which you purchase to make sending the cards easier. The number of coins needed for each card is listed with the different cards. Then you can add the name of the recipient, email address and send them to anyone you like. Here's a little info about the coins...

As you can see the coins are very affordable and each card will only cost you a few coins each. When you pick a card, you can click on, "Preview the experience" and see the animation for the card you picked. You'll get to see what your recipient will see when they open the card. You can also make a card and set it to be sent at a scheduled date. I made a Halloween card and added a few things like a liner color for the envelope and a border color for the card. I also picked a custom stamp for the virtual envelope. The card started at 2 coins and with my changes it only brought it up to 7 coins per recipient.

This is what the front of the card looks like that I picked. I changed the color of the envelope liner.

So that it now looks like this.

I picked a spooky stamp for the envelope since the virtual card will be for Halloween.

And I chose a dark border for the card since it's a Halloween card. 

There are so many interesting ways to customize these cards to really make them your own. I plan on customizing more cards and sending them out. I also sent out that first card at the the top, "This is a cheesy card..." to my brother because I thought it was fun. 

Sending out greeting cards, thank you notes, or invitations just got a lot easier.

Disclosure: I was given a free product in exchange for an honest review but all opinions are my own.
