Goodbye Evite, hello Pingg

Finally, a more attractive option than Evite. Has anybody out there tried sending email invitations using Pingg? I think I'll have to next time. The invitations look a lot cleaner. A simple graphic and text, period. You can also upload your own art.

i like those. Not too cheesy either:)

Katie said...

Cool site! I love that they offer a share with facebook option, because facebook events have now pretty much taken place of evite invitations in my world! Going to have to give these a shot sometime :)

Kate said...

I just used Pingg for the first time last night to send birthday party invitations. It was a breath of fresh air, let me tell you! I uploaded my own graphic which was super easy and looked great with the simple, modern look of the site. I am more than happy to say goodbye to evite. Yay for Pingg!

Julie said...

oooh, this looks neat! Thanks for posting! Do you have any good links for free birthday e-cards?

I've already used www.pingg.com once and my guests loved the stylish design and were especially impressed when they got my sms phone reminders and updates. Evite...NEVER AGAIN!

Amy said...

All of our friends have always used evite...I will difinitly be giving this a try for our next gathering!

TJ said...

I like those! I'll have to give them a try next time I'm planning an event. Thanks for sharing!

Great find Jess! I'm typically overwhelmed by the cheese factor of evite (and typically pass on functions that use evites, lol), but these look reasonable. I like that you can upload your own artwork! Very cool!

Mahan said...

Very nice find, Jess! I'll have to use these for my twenty-fifth birthday this year...

*looks around*

Yes. Twenty-fifth.

lillie said...

love these!! i need to find an excuse to evite soon (:

ps for ecards, have you checked out someecards.com before? very amusing...

Jess said...

Mahan, um, yeah. Right.

Julie, I have no idea. I wish I did. But now I'm off to check out the link above!

Jess said...

Anjuli, wow. That's really interesting. I'll check out your blog. I like you already! :)

Lorca said...

fab! about time online invites got cool. i have no idea why we all settled for evite. seriously, i was embarassed to send those out. glad to have pingg, something new.

sunny said...

love this site!

it's amazingly cool.

I too will not be sad to bid evite farewell!

Kati said...

I probably should not admit this but I've tried Pingg. In terms of electronic invites I have to say their designs have a great graphic appeal.

Katie said...

Pingg looks great - thanks for the tip.

PutzFrau said...

THANK GOD! I'm planning my bff's 30th and everyone swears by evite but I find them mostly tacky. This will work much better.

Thanks so much!!!

Wow, Pingg is great. Another one that I've used and liked (also simple and good looking) is enclude.com.

Meg Blocker said...

Jess, you are a lifesaver! I was just sitting here thinking, I wonder who would know about nifty e-invites that aren't nasty evites? I bet Jess would!

And you did. Just sent invites to my 29th via pingg. Thanks!

Jess said...

Lovely!

JenSpecial said...

I am going to use Pingg to send out my invites. So much classier than evite.

Note: right now (2/09) they have a gliche...you can't put quotes in your event title. It doesn't save the event name. Just figured it out! Hopefully they fix this.

JenIncarnate said...

Whoever posted the suggestion for 'Enclude.com' - thanks so much! Pingg wouldn't save my evite design so i tried Enclude and i liked the format even better! After much frustration, I recommend it :)
