I don’t know about you, but every time I scroll through my newsfeed it seems as if another one of my friends is getting engaged or announcing they’re pregnant. I can’t remember exactly how AJ and I broke the news that we were expecting (we were young and on a budget), but I vaguely remember sharing an ultrasound picture of our little Beeboop after we found out we were having a girl.
These days, there are so many creative ways to announce your pregnancy. I mean, take a look at these gender reveal ideas! Why didn’t I think of that? Even the baby shower invitations I see nowadays are more adorable than ever.
Introducing Paperless Post
Services like Paperless Post make it easy for expecting parents to create invitations that are an extension of their personal style (unlike the cookie-cutter invitations AJ and I used for our baby shower). Yes, that may be a twinge of jealousy you hear in my voice. Go browse their baby shower invitations for girls and boys, and you’ll see why.
Through partnerships with big name designers like kate spade new york and Oscar de la Renta, Paperless Post is committed to collaborating with the best creative minds in fashion to bring you artisan-crafted cards that are stylish and unique.
Lucky for me, Paperless Post has an entire collection of designs that make it easy to celebrate any occasion. Whether you’re planning a birthday bash, looking for the best way to send out your wedding invites or simply want to send a note to someone just because, Paperless Post’s collection of online and offline stationary proves that communication can be personal, well-designed and affordable regardless of the medium through which each note is sent. Even if you choose to send a virtual card, each note is delivered straight to your recipient’s inbox in an envelope, complete with a postmark and stamp. How fun is that?
So how does Paperless Post work?
Creating an account with Paperless Post is completely free. When you sign up, Paperless Post will automatically give you 25 “coins” to use however you would like (keep reading to learn how you can win 1,000 coins by entering my giveaway!).
Coins are the currency used to purchase premium elements on the site. The great thing about Paperless Post is that they have over 800 designs that are completely free to send. Adding premium elements (like envelopes, liners, stamps, logos and backdrops) to free or paid cards will add to the coin cost of your mailing.
Simply choose which type of note you want to send and the means by which you want to send it (online or offline). Then browse the dozens of designs available, select the one you like best and begin the customization process. Alter the text, add a backdrop and embellish the envelope (if desired), and set your RSVP information (if applicable). The cost of your card per recipient will appear at the top right corner of the Customize page.
Should you need more coins, you can buy them in packages starting at 20 coins for $6 (or enter my giveaway below for your chance to win 1,000 coins—a $90 value).
