We all like Evite. We really do. They coined the term. But us creative souls often need more choices, flexibility and functionality. And sometimes, we want to go ad-free.
So, with the party season just around the corner, I thought that you’d like to know of some other choices…
|pingg Online Invitations and Announcements
This company will send digital invites as well as postal cards (like, with real stamps!). It offers stylish, designer-created invitations and announcements. Part of the service is free, but upgrading to the paid service, called pingg Plus, allows for your events to be ad-free, plus it offers LOTS of added tools such as customizable event pages, online event & RSVP management, integrated gift registries and even facilitates the sale of tickets and collection of funds for an event. Oh, and the designers even get paid on the pingg Plus choices. Social networking features are built right in. Of course, you can upload your own design too. Great solutions for the everyday but especially practical for your association, reunion or charity events.
|Paperless Post Online Invitations & Stationery
If you’re going to do the online thing for a big shindig, this is the classy way to do it. The Paperless Post service allows you to send invitations and correspondence online but with all the beauty and care of traditional paper stationery. It also allows you to track RSVPs. This is a paid service (though free for the first 25 recipients) as it is completely ad-free. Great for more formal and professional events.
|PurpleTrail invitations & Cards
Is as ad-free website that allows you, among other things, to send online invitations and manage event RSVPs. Here, you can also order professionally printed cards, personalized or custom designed by you or you can go DIY and print-at-home. The online invitations are free (and ad-free) for up to 75 guests. Fees apply for those organizing larger events, but lots of features are added too. Choose from over 5000 fully customizable designs.
