A party is a party, irrespective of whether the invitation for it is made of paper or is an online one. Wouldn’t you agree? Yet, traditionalists balk at the thought of sending out an invitation over email. Once you get used to the fact that online invitations can be as effective as printed ones, you will also realize that there are several benefits of choosing them over paper ones.
- A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned
In today’s economic environment, everyone is looking at cutting costs, and using paperless invitations is a good option for doing that. If you compare the expenses of procuring, printing and delivering paper cards, online invitations win hands down in terms of making a saving.
- A Greener Alternative
Every time you opt for online invitations, you won’t feel guilty about the number of trees that went into making the paper for the cards. With eco-friendliness gaining momentum worldwide, paperless invitations are a good way to increase your green quotient. Besides cutting down on paper consumption, online invitations also eliminate the need for using transport to deliver the cards.
- Beautiful Customized Designs
The advantage that paper invitations have of unique, beautifully designed, customized cards, now extends to online invitations as well. Many sites have a range of designs that are specifically created and optimized for email. In addition, these can be personalized to suit themes or occasions to make them special. They also look more professional than hand written paper invitations, especially when you are using them for an office party or any other formal occasion.
- Easy to Edit
Quite often, you get a paper invitation printed, only to face the nightmare of having to order a reprint to correct a misspelt word or alter an unforeseen change in the date or time. With email invitations, editing takes just a few minutes. What’s more, you can make the changes on your own computer screen.
- Save Precious Time
The best part of using online invitations is that they are quick. In addition to cutting down the time spent in designing, printing and mailing paper cards, email invitations also save on response time. They reach inboxes within minutes of being sent. Similarly, RSVP messages are received almost instantly, making it easier to get a fix on the final number of guests.
Like it or not, email invitations are setting a trend in the way parties are organized more efficiently. With paperless invitations gaining popularity, they could soon replace invitation cards altogether and become the new tradition.
