My wedding invitations were mailed yesterday. If I had my way, they would have been delivered digitally, but that’s a battle that I quickly lost. I guess most people like the fanciness of a paper invitation. We’ll never be able to recreate the experience of opening an envelope online, but we’re getting closer. Paperless Post is a company that is leading the charge. They’re based in New York, NY, and they’ve built a platform that “modernizes the tradition of correspondence and helps you create cards and invitations that reflect an individual aesthetic.” They realized that most online invitations chose convenience at the cost of design. Paperless Post wants to allow you to put as much thought and effort into your online invitation or card as my fiancée and her mom put into our wedding invitations (multiple hour long meetings–I wish I was kidding).
Paperless Post has already sent more than 75 million digital cards and invitations. Many of those were free to send, but Paperless Post charges for many of their more involved designs. There is some really high quality stuff, and they even have partners like The New Yorker that allow them to offer designs (with cartoons!) that you won’t find anywhere else. Additionally, Paperless Post has transitioned towards offering printed invitations and cards (I wonder if they’ll change their name soon). You can still do the entire design process online (no meetings!), and the prices are extremely reasonable. It’s an obvious move for a company that uses free online invitations and cards to acquire new users. What I think will be really interesting is if companies like Paperless Post start to combine printed invitations with an online response option. If you want to be a part of that future, take a look at Paperless Post’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Web Developer, Graphic Designer, User Relations Associate, DBA/Database Operations Engineer, Mobile Web Developer, and Front End Developer.
