Having a Holiday Party?
It may be a white Christmas but that doesn’t mean you can’t send a green invite for your holiday party.
Remember evites from way back when?
It was a different time. E-invitation sites offered boring greetings so impersonal, they sorta made you wanna kill a tree. The next gen of ecard sites help you get social without eliciting groans from everyone on your guest list.
- Getting down without cutting down trees. The biggest evite site, Evite.com, manages 450,000 invites monthly – just imagine if all those invites were on paper.
- Party planning assistance. New sites help you organize guest lists, and some have cool features such as texting your invitees when it’s time for them to head over.
- More cash for piñatas. Paper invites can cost a few bucks apiece after postage. Our picks are (mostly) free.
- If 10,000 Biters send ten evites instead of paper invites, we’ll save more than ten trees.
- In a 2003 NY Times article, Evite.com reported that 63% of people actually respond to their e-invitations.
Check the blog for a couple JibJab cards that feature the Bite team that – in our humble opinion – are absolutely hi-larious.
- JibJab – cackle-worthy ecards that let you put your face atop animated characters (the first card’s free, then you gotta pay).
- MyPunchbowl – helps you choose the right date and a theme, and plan out all the deets (such as who’s bringing the Jell-O fruit mold to your Battleship-playing night).
- Pingg – sweet invite designs, plus it’ll text-message invitees a reminder with the address a couple hours before the event.
- Skobee – good for events that need input from different people, such as a road trip or multifamily getaway, since invites include built-in maps and a convo center where everyone can put in their two cents.
