When choosing a Bar Mitzvah invitation, there are many options available.  Gone are the days of plain white or cream colored invitations.  Technology has created a world of choices!

In the past, you had two places to turn to when it was time to buy your invitations.  The first to go to was a stat

ionary store, where you could choose from the different invitation books they had available.  The variety they offered was limited.  Also, you were relegated to going to the store during the hours it was open, which may or may not have worked for your schedule.  You also had to pick up your finished product when the order came in, instead of having it delivered.

Your second option was to find someone who had had her own  invitation business inside her home.  Typically, these were women who stayed at home and wanted to make a side income to help support the family.  While she would carry more of a selection than a stationary store, you had to work around her schedule and not yours.  Pick up and delivery of your order would also depend on what worked best for her, not you.

While both of these Bar Mitzvah invitation options offered personal customer service, they also gave the customer unwanted sales pressure.  Could you walk into someone’s home or store, take up her time, and walk away without ordering anything?

While both of these options are still available for those who want the personal touch of a salesperson, the internet has made invitation options unlimited.  There is so much more offered today than a cream colored card!
