Tis’ the season to celebrate… With only a week to go until the Big Chrimbo day, HEMNA has paid a visit to our good friends over at online personalised cards/flyers/invitations company Paperless Post to have a dab at their new range of customisable Christmassy cards.
Currently for this winter, Paperless Post are offering a grand series of cards and other materials for the general holiday season, Christmas and the New Year’s festivities. There is a bewildering selection of designs to choose, ranging from simple and traditional to funky and designer. In addition to the company’s own in-house designs, there are also a lot of big-name designers to plump for, including Meri Meri, Petit Collage, Mr. Boddington’s Studio, Rifle Paper Co. and kate spade new york. If you decide to buy paper versions of your cards, you can shop Paperless’ printed holiday collection and get 50 per cent of the retail price (today only). For the purposes of this review, I decided to choose the ‘Reindeer Topper’ card, as it has probably the most Zen-like and super relaxed Santa’s steed I have ever clapped eyes on on a card. There is a lovely and distinct contrast between the wintry grey (gray) background and the pastel-toned reindeer with its its bright red scarf, humbling putting the finishing touches to a baby pine tree. A quintessential Yuletide design
You are taken through a series of step-by-step, well, steps enabling you to customise the card itself, but also the envelope and the background the card/envelope ensemble will appear on, making it a very involving experience. You can also re-write the text on the front of the card, self-selecting your desired typeface, size and style of writing to suit your mood or tastes. The menu to the left has some handy sliders to help you fine tune your edits and in the case of things like envelope liners, there are helpful thumbnail previews for each design laid out thoughtfully for you.
It is a quick and effortless process and I had no issues at all. No fiddling, errors 404 or displaced graphics to worry about or throw you off your design tangent. It’s too easy really, because the last thing you need after all that frantic Christmas shopping and party preparation is to be bogged down by a online card that will not load. So go on and get yourself a limited edition Paperless Post card. Santa will appreciate your concern for the environment and definitely shoe you in on the ‘good list’.
