ABOUT PAPERLESS POST:
Paperless Post was founded in 2008 by a brother/sister team, James and Alexa Hirschfeld (one of Fast Company’s “Most Influential Women in Tech 2011”). We specialize in the intersection of technology and visual art, providing the tools to design graphical, interactive messages that redefine what stationery can be. Our users, ranging from top-tier cultural institutions to brides, trust us with everything from fundraisers to wedding invitations to thank you notes. We ship features that over 10 million people interact with, and we are able to focus on quality because our users pay us directly.
We care about pushing technology to its limits and creating a product that people actually use. We like to take ownership over our work, solve hard problems, and hang out with the occasional office dog. We don’t like brilliant jerks, endless meetings, or ads. We’re financially backed but also have a strong revenue model. That must be why there are always so many donuts in the kitchen.
