As much as I love real live, hold them in your hands, save them forever and ever Valentine’s Day cards, there are a few reasons I love the digital Valentine eCards from Paperless Post.
First, these are not those awful ecards you remember from the days of autoplay music and royalty-free clip art. These look simply amazing, created by designers like Kate Spade, Jonathan Adler, Hannah Berman, and Baron von Fancy to look like real cards with texture and metallics and everything.
Reason two: Unlike a real card, you can type something utterly romantic, steamy, provocative, or sweet–then think about it, erase it all, and start over–perhaps to make it even more romantic, steamy, provocative, or sweet. (Hopefully not less so.)
Reason three: There’s now a Paperless Post mobile app for iPhone and iPad, so you can send them, track them, rewrite them on the go.
Reason four through 304: There are more than 300 really impressive cards, so you have your BFF, your grandma, your main squeeze, and your “office husband” covered. I cannot stop browsing! And picking favorites. Including a very timely “Hey girl…” because you know. That’s what things have come to.
There are also cards that can be customized with your own photos, then sent immediately. And that’s probably the best thing of all; they are pretty much the only cards you can send out Valentine’s morning at the very last minute and they’ll arrive exactly on time.
Visit Paperless Post to check out their selection of Valentine’s ecards. Some are free, some cost “coins” or stamps which are super reasonable, plus you can customize envelopes and liners for additional coins.
