We have absolutely LOVED working with Paperless Post so far! We have a family member that works there and recommended this company although we were originally planning on constructing them ourselves at home. I am so glad that I didn't do them myself. We have only done our save the dates so far, but they turned out amazing and we didn't even upload the high-res version of the photo we used for the background and they still turned out really well (I didn't want to wait until the photographer had finished editing my pictures.) They do, however, warn against using a low-resolution photo which was a nice feature because at least I knew going into ordering them that the picture may turned out grainy. Anyways, I am so happy with our save the dates and the website is incredibly user-friendly. I definitely recommend this company!
Everything worked wonderfully and it was fabulous to have a blend of online and paper options for the save the dates and the wedding invitations.
While their selection of cards is impressive, the editing tools are a bit off. We wanted to use the Save the Date cards to collect mailing addresses for people. The problem is that Paperless Post adds a new card to do this with the right fields, but the site puts the invitee's name on the card without any way to add instructions. After this, the invitee is directed to an event which adds a RSVP which makes no sense. If they already completed the address card (sans instructions) why do they RSVP? Who RSVPs on Save the Date cards anyways? There is no way to edit this, making the experience really off putting.
The company needs to allow the user to make the necessary chanes.
We did online invitations to save money and the environment. These were lovely and so far the majority of guests have been able to use the electronic RSVP system without problems. Some people called or emailed to RSVP instead which was lovely. I added them manually without any issue.
I'm pleased with this option for our wedding.
Paperless Post is fantastic. There are loads of free options, which can be built upon for relatively low cost. It's really easy to create and manage a guest list and I'm particularly excited about the feature that let us gather mailing addresses via the Save the Date email. The only thing I wish were easier/better was that the image of the Save the Date appears within emails, so it isn't clear that people should click on the image in order to view and click thru the event in order to leave their address for us.
Still... a great service that cost nothing. I'd be willing to spend up to $50 for that, just to save the time of manually emailing folks to get home addresses & having to enter them to an excel sheet myself.
Using Paperless Post for our save the dates was quick and easy. Everyone loved the simple, minimalist design. The hardest part was choosing a style for our save the dates since we liked so many of them! Paperless Post even has a tracking system so you can see who has opened your invitation and you can resend it if it bounces back. We really wanted our wedding to be low-impact on the environment so we felt good about using Paperless Post. Plus, we saved a ton of money!
I have used Paperless Post on several occasions. I've used online invitations as well as purchased their paper products (Invitations and Thank You Cards).
I've always been a big fan of Paperless Post until my Baby Shower Event. I used online invitations (paid for), paper invitations, paper thank you cards, and online address request cards.
The online experience had a few frustrating moments primarily with the product development. If you send out an online invitation and subsequently learn that your guest didn't receive it because the email address is wrong - you can NOT change it without contacting the company, a representative has to reimburse you the appropriate number of coins, and THEN you can update the correct email address and re-send.
If you manually add a paper invitation guest to your tracking - you have to create a fake email address. This might be fine for one or two guests but if you have a a large number of paper invitations going out - this is obviously extremely labor intensive to make up a fake email address for all of your paper invitations. Why can't you simply add the person's name to tracking and check Attending or Regrets?
The representatives do not understand the potential UI issues that this product contains. I had to "clarify" on more than one occasion what the problem was and in one of those instances the representative still did not provide a direct response to my question - rather they gave me an alternative assuming that I had not already considered it on my own.
Overall the paper products are beautiful. The card stock is excellent and the price point is par for the course.
The Online experience needs further development and refining on the engineering side.
I would recommend the paper products with no hesitation but I would caution all of my friends about the online invitations for events that require RSVP, Address Requests, Tracking, etc.
We used Paperless Post to send out electronic save the dates. Although the selection is limited, it is easy to create invitations and the online tracking system is great!
We chose to do evites for our save the dates and chose Paperless Post.
It was hard to choose just 1 design as we loved so many!
We were so happy to send out such a well designed save the date that still felt personal. I love all of the extras on their website as well. Address book, etc.
Paperless Post was GREAT. We knew that stationary wasn't a top priority for us, but that we would want a few paper invitations for parents, scrapbooks, etc. So, instead of spending all that money on stamps, return envelopes, menu cards, regular envelopes, etc. we just went with Paperless Post. There's a huge selection of invitations to fit your style, you can order paper invitations just for the people you know would ACTUALLY keep them, and the online service means you can send follow-up emails requesting RSVPs or reminding them of the upcoming deadline, plus, once you enter in the time and location, the guest can choose to add it to their calendar. Talk about an all-in-one service!
The only potential issue is that, since it's a template, you can't go crazy with the customization. You pick what works for you, and go with it.
We ended up using Paperless Post for our Rehearsal Dinner, Welcome Event, and Wedding invitations, and would recommend it to ANYONE planning a wedding. Any time I had a question, I would get a response in less than 24 hours...even on weekends. They have an around-the-clock staff making sure that this service is easy to use.
To save on costs, we did online email Save the Dates. I love the classic look and customizable templates Paperless Post has. They have so many great designs to choose from. It is easy to add and import email addresses. Another great feature Paperless Post has, is the option to collect mailing addresses from your recipients. This will save lots of time!
We ordered our invitations, thank you notes, envelopes with liners, and menus (using a card meant to be a Save the Date) from Paperless Post's PAPER collection and we were so happy with them. They use Crane paper, and we got the double-thick cards-we actually got comments from friends on the nice quality of the paper. The website design tool is easy to use and their customer service is great. I emailed in a few questions and someone got back to me right away. They'll also mail you samples before you place the bulk order. Their designs are beautiful.
I know that digital invitations are still very new for this category, but we were looking for ways to cut down on our budget and/or spend it in other areas. Paperless Post was a great way to do that! While I love the look of paper invitations, the new reality (at least among my friends and family) is that most people lose or throw away the invites shortly after receiving and just rely on wedding websites or friends for more information anyway. Plus, with everyone using smartphones to locate the venue, it just makes sense to have everything digital. But again, I didn't want to lose the nice look of a paper invite. With Paperless Post, we were able to have very professional, nice looking invitations at a fraction of the cost of regular paper invites. Plus, it was easy to manage the guest list and gather actual mailing addresses (for Thank Yous) as part of the RSVP process. The best part for me personally was the immediacy of responses. Within minutes of sending out the invites, I had people responding. No more waiting for people to reply vs 'snail mail'.
Overall, a great alternative to paper invitations!!
Great and easy to use! Highly recommended.
One of our many vendors that I will actually take the time to write a review for, Paperless Post was just amazing! We ordered the paper option for invites, and the quality of the invitations and envelopes was just amazing. I was so, so happy with them and we received so many compliments.
Protip: They don't ship to Canada, but we shipped them to CBI in Buffalo and had ourselves a road trip to pick them up. Totally worth it.
Love paperless post. Beautiful invitations sent via email at little to no cost. Easy to track who has received and viewed your invite as well as responses.
