Digital invitations that look beautifulEmail invitations might not be your first choice when you're hosting an event, but they can save a lot of time and expenses. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Sharon Profis reports on a few websites that let you create beautiful digital invitations.
[MUSIC] Paperless post is all the perf you need to see that email invitations can be beautiful. The website and accompanying app lets you choose from a wide selection of customizable invitations that look like the real thing. Most options are free, while premium cards start at seven cents apiece. As friends and family open their invitations, you'll be able to track their activity from the app or website. Celebrations.com is a similar option, but allows independent designers to upload their card designs. You'll see a more varied and quirky selection for just about any occasion. Like paperless post many of the options are free while premium options are $10. Finally Evite has come a long way since its early days with fresh invite designs that you'd be happy to email to friends. Plus a section for party ideas gives you do it yourself projects, recipes and party themes. In San Francisco, I'm Sharon Profis, cnet.com, for CBS News. [MUSIC]
