Granted that the charm of receiving an invitation card or a greeting card in the post or in person is something else, but in a time where going virtual isn't the future but the present, why waste anymore paper? Sounds like a legit question, right? Here's a legit answer and solution in one -- Paper Date Co. The brainchild of Shruti and Meenakshi, Paper Date Co is what they call India's first curated personalised invitation and greeting card designing platform.
Basically, this duo has created a website with over 500 designer e-invites and greeting card options that can be personalised to your taste. This covers all sorts of life occasions and milestones - from personalised wedding e-invitations (bridal showers, engagement, sangeet, save the dates) to birthday greetings , get togethers (brunch, bachelor parties, sundowners, poker nights, baby showers) to festive invites and virtual celebrations (graduations, meetings). How? By collaborating with cool independent graphic designers, illustrators, and artists from around the world. This way, the Paper Date Co. also gives several of these up and coming independent artists a platform to shine, upload their designs and earn a regular income.
Now that Paper Date Co. has delivered on nostalgia and personalisation, here's how they bring convenience into the picture.
