Going Digital

March 4, 2010

Emily and I originally wanted to offer a line of all-digital invitations–specifically wedding invitations.  So, in this post I’m going to outline some of the pros and cons of sending digital invitations and why we think it just might work..

PROs

-It’s cheap.  Plain and simple.  There’s no paper, no waste, no postage.
-There’s no paper involved, so no ink and no dead trees.
-It’s simple.
-Invitees can RSVP via the world wide web.
-It can be as complex or simple as the customer wants it to be.
-It doesn’t get food stains on it when you leave it on the kitchen counter (not that I would know anything about that…).

CONs

-It’s less formal.
-It’s easy to get caught up in a SPAM filter.
-There’s nothing tangible so it might not hold the same value that a paper invitation would.
-Someone might read it and not know what they’re reading and just delete it.
-It’s not mainstream…yet.

Those are a few off the top of my head.

So, would you send out digital invitations?  Why or why not?  And to what events would you utilize them?
