Spreading The Love with Paperless Post

As the holiday season approaches, it's time to start thinking about what your cards are going to look like and where you're going to get them from. Personally, I love sending cards just as much as I love receiving them, not just during the holidays but all year round. 

I have friends and family all over the world, that's just part of life, and keeping in touch with them is just as important as the people you see on a regular basis. I send paper cards to my closest friends at least once a month, on top of speaking on the phone.

Spreading warmth and happiness during the holiday season is a little more important and affectionate because it's the time of year where you wish that you could spend time with all of the people you care about. Even though that is merely impossible, you can still make them feel like you're thinking of them by sending an e-card, paper card, or even a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

I was recently introduced to an amazing company called Paperless Post which is a design-focused online platform that provides paperless and paper invitations, cards, and stationary for all of life's important moments. You can sign up for Paperless Post for free and browse all of their one-of-a-kind designs. You are automatically given 25 "coins" when you sign up, and then you can purchase more which starts at 20 coins for $6. There are hundreds of cards, invitations, and stationary designs to choose from ranging from every holiday imaginable and the best part is that you can customize each one.

Power siblings and founders James and Alexa Hirschfield started this company in 2007 and launched the start-up in 2009 which branched into an extremely successful business. Paperless Post has even teamed up with well know fashion designers including: Kate Spade New York, Mr. Boddington's Studio, Rifle Paper Co, Sugar Paper, Kelly Wearstler, Linda & Harriett, as well as Oscar de la Renta. 

"Communication is an extension of personal style: how you say something is often as important as what is being said. Paperless Post modernizes the tradition of correspondence and helps you create cards and invitations that reflect an individuals aesthetic."

One of the main tips I have for eliminating stress during the holiday season is by starting early. November is right around the corner which gives us about two months until Christmas. I always start planning my holiday parties and start making my Christmas card lists way in advance. That way you aren't in ant rush. Another trick is to make sure you have all your supplies ready for shipping and sending items. I like to buy a few books of stamps ahead of time, and have everything laid out.

Paperless Post is also very popular when it comes to online cards, which also makes it a lot more convenient for you as well. I am happy that I now know about this company because I am a huge lover of all things stationary, especially cards. 

They also have a pretty big celebrity following as well. Kirsten Dunst used it for her 30th Birthday party, the Obama administration used it for events during the 2012 re-election campaign, and Will and Kate even used Paperless Post invitations for prince Georges's christening. Sounds pretty cool to me, I definitely recommend checking them out and designing some cards of you're own. Just visit their direct link and trust me, you'll be on their site for hours!

  1. This sounds like a neat card company, can't wait to check them out.

  2. I've used Paperless Post one time for my bachelorette party. The invites turned out soo good.

  3. It would be so neat if they did a Chanel collaboration. On top of a lot more other designers. Kate and Oscar are great but could you imagine a Vera Wang wedding collection. LOVES IT. Thanks for introducing this company.
