Latest & Greatest

You're Invited: Gray Malin for Paperless Post

Hi Everyone,

I'm so excited to announce today that I have partnered with the premier destination for online invitations, Paperless Post! With the final whispers of winter lingering away, it is time to start planning for all of the celebrations that are always popping up. Now, THAT is something to cheers about, in my opinion. Exclusively available at paperlesspost.com, I have created a 15-piece collection by lending my hand selected, signature vibrant imagery to be utilized as your customizable online cards and invitations.

For those of you not familiar with Paperless Post, they have been reimagining invitations through design and technology to help people come together in an easy, yet meaningfully way. Their distinctive, customizable designs can be created and sent online, and tracked with ease using sophisticated digital event management tools. I am in good company, too. Paperless Post has also collaborated with the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Jonathan Adler and Kelly Wearstler...to name a few. To date, Paperless Post users have sent over 200 million cards. WOW. 

To see the collection in its entirety look no further than right HERE, but in the meantime, I thought I'd highlight some of the invitations that are perfect for warm weather celebrations as well as a few that are perfect anytime of year.

POOL PARTY

The sun is finally starting to be out with a bit of consistency, so that means it is time to plan your first fun in the sun gathering. Who wouldn't want to receive this image in their inbox inviting them to your pool party? Don't have a pool? Don't let that stop you! Throw some blankets in the backyard, head to a local park or the beach, if you have one close by, and invite all of your friends and family to join. Another fun idea for this invitation - Destination Bachelorette Party!

ENGAGEMENT 

Pop the bubbly! It is time to celebrate the special couple's engagement. Champagne Balloons from my series, Up and Away, was a perfect selection for Paperless Post as it immediately conveys that it's time to celebrate! The options are really endless with this one, from a Graduation to New Years Eve to an Anniversary party, the list goes on an on.

BIRTHDAY PARTY

Using Always Welcome at the Parker from my Gray Malin at the Parker series, this whimsical card screams FUN for any age or celebration! If this particular party is for a little one, may I suggest the perfect gift for the birthday boy or girl? The Be Our Guest! Collector's Edition Set, which is the upcoming release of my first children's book.  

SAVE THE DATE

This captivating image is the perfect Save the Date for any occasion, but I must admit that I immediately envisioned it being used for a wedding Save the Date. Considering the image is entitled The Honeymooners, I think one could understand where I'm coming from, no? 

BABY SHOWER

Okay, I know everyone loves themselves some llamas, so this is definitely another one that could be used for so many things: 21st Birthday Girl or Guy, Bachelor/ette Weekend and so on. I really love this particular invitation, based on Llama with Balloons, for a Baby Shower, where the Mommy-to-be already knows that she's having a sweet little girl. 

From the 15 Options on Paperless Post, which one would you use and for what? Don't worry all you beach and ski lovers out there, there are some great options for you, as well. Starting in price at 60 cents per guest, you're sure to find whimsical inspiration and add colorful joy to any of your upcoming events.

Cheers,

xx

GM
