So, most of you know that before I started SMP, I was a stationery designer. After working in a little boutique paperie in San Francisco, I fell hard for all things paper. And have since been a bit of a paper snob. Letterpress, perfectly engraved designs, thick, soft papers…it all really gets me going.

Which is why I am so surprised to really love this little video I spotted over on Design*Sponge. A digital save the date.

Save the Date_9/26/09 from Jason Harmon on Vimeo.

So what do you think? Can digital save the dates really take the place of paper perfections? Here is another one that one of our readers sent us. Just click on the image to watch the video for an engagement party…

We have a ton of fun stuff on the way today, but in the meantime, I am dying to hear what you think about this new digital invitation trend!
