I read about pingg several times before in the blogosphere and yesterday was the first time that I actually used it as a test – Can I tell you: I am so over that other electronic invitation service. pingg claims to be the “ultimate in event management” and, by George, I think it’s very close!
The invite designs are very clean, stylish and modern. What I also like about it is that you can upload your own designs, logos or graphics. This is awesome if you’ve already had a custom logo or monogram created for your event. With the pingg Designer Series, you can have access to original artwork to make your invites works of art! There is a choice of many exclusive (and complimentary) designs from up-and-coming talent as well as established artists. Additonally, for $10, you can search their extended gallery to find just the right image.
What I like best about pingg is the ease of use and the simplicity of the event management details. I was able to import my guest list from either email or that other electronic invitation service: easy-peasy! You can use the surroundSend(r) feature and send your pingg invite five different ways: email, SMS, print, personalized website or via social media, like Facebook. As an end-recipient, I love the simple yes/no/maybe buttons embedded directly in the email. No new screens to open and look at, if I don’t want to. After the invitations are sent, you can manage the event from one place and even send THANK YOU NOTES after the event is over.
It’s freakin’ awesome! I HEART simple organization. Need a guest list at the door of your event? pingg can print and import confirmed attendees! And your guest list is updated each time a guest RSVPs, so you’ll never leave anyone off the list.
So enough of me gushing about pingg-my new best friend in online invitation and event management. Go on over and check it out for yourself. And, although I’d hate for my bubble to be burst, I’d like to hear about ALL opinions of this service, if you’ve used it. Please feel free to share your pingg experiences.
**Added bonus: for you eco-chic couples going green for your wedding, pingg is a great tree-saving (thus O2 producing) alternative to traditional invitations
