I hope you’re doing well? I’m so excited to be bringing you another brand review. This time I’ve been in contact with Paperless Post Project to share with you their eco-friendly, super cute and personalised products. I’ve got to admit I love modern technology and the way it can be used (as a blogger that’s pretty obvious) so I was pretty excited to have the opportunity to review this site.
First off, it’s great to note that the website works incredibly well, is easy to use and overall just very user friendly. I can not stand a website that doesn’t work quite right… So that’s a positive.
What this company actually does is as straight forward as it sounds. You create personalised cards/invitations to email to friends/family/etc. I think this is a great way to send out party invites, announcements or just a nice message to someone you love. The site gives you preset cards as a template but it’s up to use to chose words, colours, fonts and the type of envelope you want your card to be sent in. You pay for everything in coins, kind of like credits, which you can buy starting at £10 for 40 coins. Originally this seemed like a lot to me especially since they’re digital products, but if you think about how much you’d spend to buy and post a real invitation this is way most cost friendly and most importantly helps the environment. Plus the mail isn’t that much and can be done for as little as 5 coins. Another really cool feature is that you can make an RSVP section allowing people to reply to you (for free) or send you a message regarding the mail you’ve sent them,
I didn’t have any events coming up that I needed to design invites for (my social life isn’t very extravagant) so instead I decided to design some little notelets for my Mum as a way of saying ‘I love you’!
Here are some screenshots of me designing the card so you can see the process behind this and how effortless it is.
I love the design process of these cards, everything is easy and just takes a few clicks. There are so many colour/pattern options which really do allow you to make it as personalised as you’d like. I sent myself one of these cards so I could see what it would look like.
How fricking cute does that look?! Imagine opening that and having a classy looking invite to a dinner part or a colourful birthday. I love the overall impact this can have on people, everyone loves cute personalised things like this. I just wish the email didn’t take me to another page to view it. I don’t know why that bothered me, I’d just have preferred it to have all in been embedded in the email. That’s a very small critique though and really I’m just being picky.
Overall, I really like this idea and was able to get in contact with the brand. It’s a super cute idea if you don’t want to waste paper and save money; particularly on stamps. If you’re looking for an innovative way to send gorgeous invites/cards then you’ll love this. As someone who loves stationary, I’m not surprised that I like this so much.
