3 Reasons Paperless Wedding Stationery Could Be Right for You

  |   By Nicole Keen

There's no denying the power of paper, and we're the first to acknowledge the old-fashioned charm of a hand-written thank-you note, but the fact is that technology is rapidly changing the way we send and receive information---even wedding invitations. A recent partnership between Paperless Post and stationery giant Crane & Co. proves beyond a doubt that consumers are hungry for stylish and classy e-vites. For those of you who are a little more traditional, have no fear, you can also order lovely paper versions through the site! However, if you're thinking of going the paperless route for your wedding, here are three points that might seal the deal (with a virtual stamp, of course).

It's Budget-Friendly

If you're having a large wedding, the cost of sending save-the-dates, invitations, RSVP cards and self-addressed envelopes can really add up. With Paperless Post, you can send 60 e-cards for approximately $5! Plus, saving money doesn't have to mean sacrificing quality---Crane & Co.'s e-vites are beautifully designed, and you can personalize the fonts, colours and envelope liners to achieve the exact look you want.

It's Fast & Easy

You can get yourself set up in minutes, send your invites instantly (this is especially handy if you have friends and relatives in far-flung places) and track your RSVPs through the website---no more wondering if your cards are lost in the mail.

It's "Green"

If hosting an eco-friendly celebration is a priority for you, Paperless Post might be the way to go. You'll drastically reduce your carbon footprint by forgoing printed stationery. There's no paper wasted, and no fuel is used transporting the envelopes to your guests.

Are you considering e-vites for your big day or are you sticking to traditional printed stationery? We'd love to hear what you think!
