In many ways Ecards have transformed the way we celebrate. What we used to say in writing with a handwritten card can now be said with witty animations, zany music and a hundred other digital ways sent over the internet.

Whether it’s a birthday, a wedding, a birth or another happy event the digital revolution has really transformed the way we do cards.

Still the basic message remains the same it’s,’I’m thinking of you at this special time.’

Making ecards would be one of the best jobs in the world I think. It would be cool to be in an office where your job for the day would be to find the right sounding blow tickler for your next birthday card.


Jib Jab



Jib jab are the kings of the ecards as far as I’m concerned. I came across them a few years ago when I saw my face on a cartoon character skidding across an animated disco floor. It was pretty cool animation.

Since then they've continued to come up with great themed video animations. Halloween, Christmas, and other important themes have been added to the list and each time there's at least half a dozen well known songs with cartoons you can put your face on.



You will love how many different cards you're able to find 123Greetings; this site has been around for a while and offers a huge variety of free ecards from which to choose from, for any occasion you can possibly imagine.

Most of the cards on the site are free; they also have announcement, birthday, special occasion, holiday, love, and many more varieties of ecards.
