Mail is expensive, and with Canada Post planning on potentially increasing standard size domestic stamps, mail is getting even more expensive to send. We did not enjoy the idea of a huge chunk of our invitation and stationery budget going to the post office, so we looked at ways to be budget friendly.
Our first decision was save the dates. We wanted them, but we didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg sending them, so it was time to look for cost-saving measures.
Enter Paperless Post.
Paperless Post is a great e-card website that offers some elegant designs, a lot of which are free. For a small extra fee, you can even add an e-envelope that your card comes out of, as well as an envelope liner and choice of stamp. To pay for these, you use “coins.”
If you like one of their designs, but aren’t sure about emailing them, they even have the option of purchasing some in real paper.
We decided we wanted something simple and elegant. We also wanted space on it to include our wedding website.
Without further ado, here are our save the dates!
