Paperless Post - beautiful illustrations for customisable online stationery

I'm really into illustration work, each week I pore over my Pinterest boards looking at watercolour and vector designs, then I look at designers showcasing their work on both You Tube and Instagram. It's interesting to see trends like the unicorn craze still ongoing and geometric and botanical patterns. These designs are great for inspiring party invitations, wedding invites and all kinds of cards but where can you find such current on-trend work to use for your own stationery requirements? Also, with everything being so much online, the ability to create invites and send them out by easily is solved by the customisable stationery company Paperless Post.

You can create a personal element with Paperless Post's categories that enable you to quickly and easily have invites sent out for a party or send a cool greeting card to say thank you or Happy Birthday or just I'm thinking of you...... All you do is purchase digital coins and then use them to go create, you even can choose the most perfect online envelope design complete with stamp.

Every step of the way is full of choices with Paperless Post. You can select the font type, add your own photos to some designs and choose the background colour to your invite/card. I love this one for my son's birthday party with cheery colourful animals.

Paperless Post has partnered with several world-famous designers and lifestyle brands, including kate spade new york, Oscar de la Renta, Jonathan Adler, and Rifle Paper Co to provide you with beautiful designs that you will be spoilt for choice over. As well as designing an invite for my son's birthday, I looked at a card for moving address (eeeek!)  and as you know I love Halloween so I was really excited to see some exciting cards for me to send later this year to my fellow pumpkin loving enthusiasts. Doesn't this one look cute with the candy corn design and really striking against the black and yellow envelope.

Paperless Post has delivered over 85 million cards to date and what a environmentally friendly way to send cards and invites. The process is an easy one that you choose all the elements that you like and then select the recipient(s) and off it goes..... There is a simple RSVP service too to make organising events super easy.

The illustrations are very very varied and current with that cool independent vibe. To help with the design process you can run through a test sending of the card - a very smart user interface indeed.
Great thing is that the reply card option offers an RSVP tool to manage replies, has an attendee list and a comment wall for their replies. It's a great way to assist with your events.  I like the service from Paperless Post very much and I have to admit that I hate sending actual cards quite bothersome so this suits me completely and the designs were a big hit for me in comparison with what I see in card shops, much more design led and exciting.
