J’adore – Paperless Post

J'adore on Misadventures with AndiI have been participating in the Month of Letters challenge which has been a lot of fun, and it has been a reminder of the simple things it life, but it is not practical with my lifestyle. I am constantly over-committed and with my mission to REFINE my activities and efforts, electronic cards and invitations are my method of choice.

Also, I realized that for many of the people I interact with in my life, I don’t even have their physical addresses!

There is an added advantage to the electronic method, it is perfect for people like me who despite the fact that I am in my forties can still forget the birthdays of some of the most important people in my life, like my own father and my niece….which is exactly what I did in 2013!

In comes Paperless Post to the rescue.  Sure, electronic cards have been around for a very long time, but not with the personality and creativity that Paperless Post has.  I first noticed them when I began to receive invitations to media events from PR agencies, they are cute, clever and it is easy for the agencies to manage the RSVP list.  From my perspective, they leave an impression.

Paperless Post has something for everyone.  For Valentine’s Day they certainly have my number!  I love these Paperless Post’s foodie Valentines!


They also have a ton of travel-themed cards, I really love the Travel to Me series and they have a travel-themed Val Day card as well!

Whatever you decide for your card, here are some tips that co-founder James Hirschfeld shared with me:

Home-cooked meal or out to dinner?

I am an iffy cook and there are so many good restaurants in New York I prefer to leave it to the pros.

Flowers or chocolates?

Flowers. No one has to feel guilty about eating them.

Paper or paperless?

Paperless is great for well-meaning procrastinators like myself. Order our paper cards if you’re the kind of guy who plans these things out in advance (no judgment).

How about you? Are you sending out Valentine’s Day cards? Traditional or paperless?

  1. James is a cutie. I sent my husband one that says you are the cheese to my macaroni. Someone had it on FB, not sure if it was from his website.

  2. ” your the loax to my cream cheese” thats to cute

  3. My version is “You’re the butter to my eggs.”

  4. I love their Paperless Post’s foodie Valentines. My fave is You Really Make The Cut.
    Happy Valentine’s Day, Andi!

  5. Ha! Love it. And now I’m craving smoked salmon with dill and cream cheese…

    I don’t usually do V-day, but if I did, I’d probably go the traditional route. There’s just something about getting a handwritten card… but then, to use the old cliche, it’s still always the thought that counts! Something is definitely better than nothing, and like you, I’m terrible at keeping (or getting) physical addresses!

      @Katie, my hubby and I follow the same philosophy as you and Justin, we don’t celebrate holidays because people dictate, we celebrate whenever we want. So I like the cheesy card route because it sort of makes fun of the day that everyone takes so seriously. I don’t celebrate Christmas or birthdays either (except my nieces) maybe because I forget them anyway! I just feel like you should celebrate every day!

    Still sending traditional here. They have some really nice ones too!

    My wife enjoys having a romantic dinner at home.

    Ya know, I dont even send Christmas cards much less Valentine Cards. I love the holidays, but I would rather tell you I love you than send a card:)
