I love finding e-commerce sites that make everyday tasks more efficient. Since stumbling upon Paperless Post, there is no more procrastinating on getting those party invitations out. Once decided on the date, the save the date goes out, the design of the invitation is selected and sent. Within hours you can see the invitations that have been opened, see rsvp's coming in and lovely messages and compliments coming back. You can include a map of the location and closer to the time send a reminder or a wet weather contingency plan. There is no compromising on style either. A whole list of designers such as Kate Spade New York, Oscar de la Renta, Crane & Co and Vera Wang have teamed up with Paperless Post to ensure the invitation is an extension of your personal taste.
