Using a web site called Paperless Post, Bridget and her husband-to-be designed a beautiful invitation, and saved themselves hundreds of dollars. * not to mention tons of clock time, because guests RSVP correct to the electronic mail, which eliminates having to keep cut of all those bantam RSVP cards. The terrifying web site cost of a Wedding says the average monetary value of wedding invites is $ 812 ! Have you ever noticed just how much paper goes into a marry invite ? The big invitation, then that little one about the reception, the RSVP card, possibly one with directions and another with details on brunch for the future day ? I ’ megabyte sure Paperless Post would please the environmentalist push. I decided to investigate precisely how much it would cost to invite people to a conjectural party using Paperless Post. When you sign up for Paperless Post, for detached, you ’ re automatically given 25 “ coins ”. You can besides buy coins, starting at 20 for $ 6. I went through the summons of creating my own invitation to play around with price points. Paperless Posts offers a variety of complimentary, customizable cards. naturally, I started there. There are batch of beautiful invitations for people going the wedding road, but I went with a fun batting order to send out for my fake party. I created a circuit board with an envelope, so people feel like they ’ re opening up a virtual card, which is kind of fun. After designing the card I got to the checkout and started plugging in guests. It cost one coin per node and the lend envelope touch besides set me back a mint. ( You can besides add a custom-make stomp for another coin. ) so, to send the invite to two guests for a grand piano sum of four coins ( search at that flying mathematics ! ). If I were using this like arrangement for my marry, and had 200 person invite list ( wholly realistic with the size of my run class ), I ’ five hundred need 400 coins to send out my invites. It would cost $ 60 to buy 400 Paperless Post coins. That ’ s significantly cheaper than printing actual cards and mailing them out to guests. I know the Miss Manners of the world would gasp in horror. Call it coarse if you ’ d like, but I find the snazzy e-mail invite incredibly understanding. hera is the snarky invitation to my fabricated party !
