Paper from Paperless Post

I've been receiving Paperless Post invites in my email for a few years now but had never actually used it myself to organize an event.  As we plan baby Will's baptism, I thought it was the perfect time to give it a shot.  I reviewed a ton of samples, chose an invite, put in my information, and then input email addresses.  Here's the preview Paperless Post gave me of my online invites:

I love the design and the chapel happens to look just like the little country church we're baptizing Will in.  Ninety-five percent of our guests have email access, so this online invitation works perfectly, but what about guests like my grandfather, who is one hundred percent not online?  I could obviously have just called him up and given him the details, but I liked the idea of him getting some mail for this special occasion for our family.

Luckily, Paperless Post has recently introduced paper versions of some online cards and I was able to order 10 paper invitations to send to my offline loved ones.  I was so excited when they showed up in my mailbox.

Looking just like the online invites and printed on beautiful, thick paper.

This worked out as the best of both worlds for me - all the conveniences of online invites paired with good, old fashioned snail mail.  I definitely will be pasting one of these paper invites into Will's baby book!
