I hope this tie3zi 帖 pleases ya.
帖子= tie3 zi = invitation , message, forum post.

帖 = 巾 + 占
巾 = jin1 = kerchief / towel / turban / general purpose cloth / woman's head covering (old)
占 = zhan1 = divine / observe / versify
I remember seeing old movies where a woman would drop a handkerchief as a ploy to get the attention of a man she as attracted to. In the movie "Tizoc" a dropped handkerchief was an offer of marriage in some Amerindian cultures, so I can make the connection between tie3zi and invitation / message / forum post / invitation card / notice

晚报 。
But it's usually a newspaper name, as in every city in China there are newspapers containing 晚报 in the name. So in English probably something like Evening Post?
