Print vs. Electronic Party Invitations

personalized-party-invitationsIn our digital age, it’s easier than ever to skip personalized party invitations in favor of email. Our green conscience points to the energy costs in the production and delivery of such paper goods, from the printing presses to the mail trucks. Then there’s our own personal costs such as shopping, addressing and paying postage.

But when it comes to planning a party, what’s at stake if you choose email over a printed, personalized invitation? Boasting 25,000 invitations an hour, no one knows the popularity of email invitations than With so many parties being planned out there, when is it better to spend the money and energy on printed invitations? Here’s our take on occasions to choose print over electronic invitations:

When to Choose Printed Invitations Over Electronic

Extra Important Club/Organizational Events

Group gatherings that meet regularly, such as book clubs or athletic groups, use email often where cost is an issue. But for that special year-end party, or an extra important occasion such as honoring someone, mailing print invitations conveys extra importance. Similarly, charities, churches, and other groups with a mission are always cost conscious. But to garner extra attention for special fund raising or other important events, go with a print invitation that gets noticed.

Milestone Birthday Party

Sweet sixteen? Fortieth birthday? Party with a special theme? You might want to communicate extra special birthdays visually with a printed invitation.

Baby or Wedding Shower

Wedding shower or baby shower, this is too special an occasion for an electronic invitation, and too personal to be posted through other social media alone. Definitely order and send printed invitations.
