Let me preface this post by saying that I love invitations and stationary products and I love all of my event industry friends who create fabulous invitations and stationary products.  With that being said, the purpose of FAVORITE THINGS is to bring you amazing ideas and inspiration for all of life's celebrations, and PAPERLESS POST is one of those amazing ideas that has merged beautiful stationary products with technology to create swoon-worthy electronic invitations.  These are not your average EVITES.

I am impressed with PAPERLESS POST because they combine the beauty and thoughtfulness of traditional luxury cardstock with the technological lifestyle of today.  If you are open to the idea of electronic invitations for your event, then take a look at a few of the invitations from PAPERLESS POST...

For a Bar or Bat Mitzvah...

For a bridal shower...

For an Engagement Party...

If you still believe in "traditional event invitations", but love the idea of PAPERLESS POST, you could send PAPERLESS POST Save the Dates.  Take a look at these..

With PAPERLESS POST, your guest receive by email an actual "stamped" envelope to "open".   You even have the option of "lining" your envelope - PAPERLESS POST has thought of everything!  Your guests will fill out their reply cards and send them back via email.  All of the RSVPs are tracked by the PAPERLESS POST.

There are several reasons why PAPERLESS POST is rapidly gaining popularity among the social set.  First, is cost.  Even if you choose all of the available options for your PAPERLESS POST invitations (ie. envelope liners, photos), the cost will be considerably less than traditional invitations.  They are a fabulous option if you are working with a tight budget.  The next big reason that people are choosing PAPERLESS POST over traditional invitations is because they are completely green.  And the last reason why I believe people are turning to PAPERLESS POST for their event invitations is because the are "new, fun, exciting and they speak the language of today's tech savvy generation."  You grandmother may not check her email regularly but all of the your young (or young at heart guests) will be impressed.

I have a few friends who have recently used PAPERLESS POST for Bar and Bat Mitzvah invitations and Wedding Save The Dates.  All of them selected PAPERLESS POST over "traditional" invitations for different reasons but they all agreed that the response to their PAPERLESS POST invitations and Save The Dates was great and they do not regret going the electronic invitation route.
