Evite vs Punchbowl: Look & Feel of Paper for Free

When you send invitations for an important celebration, you shouldn't have to choose between the convenience of digital and a beautiful design that you're proud to deliver to your guests. Online invitations used to be a compromise. But not anymore. At Punchbowl®, we offer online invitations that are better than paper. When you choose Punchbowl, your invitations will have the look and feel of real paper — for FREE. You won’t find that on Evite®. Instead, you’ll find free generic invites that were designed for dial-up.


Invites with the look of paper on Punchbowl®

Punchbowl® is the gold standard in online invitations. Every invitation in our collection includes a matching digital envelope, envelope liner, and postage stamp that you can personalize. When guests receive your online invite, they will enjoy a realistic mail-opening experience where the invitation exits the envelope and is presented on their screen. Punchbowl® also offers the Handmade Art Collection — gorgeous digital designs featuring hand-painted illustrations, chalkboard drawings, collages, and more. So when we say our invites have the look and feel of paper, we mean it. Many of them started on an artist's sketchpad. The best part? You don’t need to pay a dime to customize and send paper-quality designs to your guests. Party hosts can personalize and send beautiful handmade designs with a free account.


Generic designs on Evite®

When you send e-invitations with Evite®, you won’t find free online invitations with the look and feel of paper. Instead, you’ll find the same generic designs you remember from the '90s with a flat, dull presentation. Evite® uses old technology and designs that were designed for dial-up. The presentation is outdated and uninspired, and offers limited customization options. If you want to send invitations with a semblance of paper on Evite®, you’re required to pay for a premium membership.


Quality is free on Punchbowl®

At Punchbowl®, we don’t believe that quality should be the paid-only exception. Gorgeous online invitations should be the standard. We make online invitations better than paper, and they're free. Say goodbye to boring, tacky designs. Say Adiós to Evite®, and hello to Punchbowl®.
