I do love a bit of beautiful stationary, personalised paper, lovely birthday cards, pretty invitations - I lose count of how many birthday cards I buy every year! May is a particularly busy month for birthdays in our family - so, when Paperless Post approached me and asked if I'd like to try out their service I jumped at the chance.
With Paperless Post you can create online cards and invitations from designers such as Kate Spade,Oscar de la Renta and Liberty.
There is also the option to get your creations printed onto quality paper with in many beautiful designs including foil printing.
I decided to test out a few birthday card designs - my daughter is turning 11 on Sunday, she loves watermelon designs, so I found this one and personalised it for her, it is really easy to create and gives you options to change the backdrop, the text, the colours and the inside of the envelope. You can search through keywords or different themes to find exactly what you are looking for.
The envelope will arrive in the recipients inbox and the card will pop out and open for them to read - it's a really sweet idea.
You pay for the service using coins - you'll get 25 free coins when you sign up for Paperless Post. Twenty coins will set you back just $6 (about £4.60). My card cost me 3 coins to send which works out at around 75 pence - which is a bargain for a personalised e-card.
I have also been looking at the invitations - there are some beautiful designs by Josephine Baker using foil printing - paper prices start at just £1.66 and an online version from just 1 coin to send to each person.
I have certainly been really pleased with what I have sent out so far and would really recommend this service to anybody. I am now off to create some more!
