BLISSfix recommends Paperless Post (www.paperlesspost.com)
Yesterday I talked about writing more thank you notes and now I’d like to tell you about a website that can help you do just that. I have been enjoying my free trial with www.paperlesspost.com for several months now and I love it for 4 main reasons.
1) It’s Easy – For whatever reason I find it so much easier to send notes to people via the web instead of handwriting it. However, there is something that’s missing in an email or e-card. This website is the perfect balance as it looks handwritten and yet I can type, spell check and share it with multiple viewers. It’s also easy for the recipient. I’ve sent it to people who are technically challenged and they have easily opened their thank-yous from me and have very much appreciated the card.
2) It’s Beautiful – As someone who has worked in the stationery industry, the visual, tactile elements are beautiful and the designs are very classy. Think Cranes stationery only electronic.
3) It Saves $$$ – The” stamps” and “coins” are much more reasonably priced than actual stamps and high-end cards.
4) It Saves the Planet! – by sending notes electronically, you’re saving stamps, paper, printing and ink which saves trees and other natural resources. Sure, it’s just one note… but I’ve already sent 15 notes in a few months and over the course of a year that might become 60 notes a year, and imagine I use this for 20 years, then we’re looking at 1200 notes… and I’m just one person.
