How can you get free birthday ecards that look good?
Here are our favorite eCard options
Smilebox – interactive way to send eGift cards; I love their song selections and animations!
123 Greetings – we love the format of their website. Much more user friendly and traditional, in my opinion.
Jib Jab – upload a photo of a face and attach it to a dancing body. A must see for birthday laughs!
Try to Avoid eCards from websites that give a free trial for a few days and after that will ask for payment. Unless you have a lot of people to get eCards for! Look for a ecard websites that will offer the friends birthday eCard free for a long time.
Think about the Graphics on the eCard
Avoid every other type other than flash ecards. Do not take very large or very small size. Chose bright colors. The animation should be attractive and the text heart warming. Many of us are worried about flash players. Do not worry. Most of the users have flash players installed on their computers now.
Choose the eCard to Match Yours and Your Friend’s Personality
Make friends happy! The ecard should make your friend feel good knowing that it was specially selected just for him/her. Your friend will feel happy that you spent some time to select an eCard for them. Whether poetic or hilarious – you can match interests like a sport, a taste in music, even a funny memory you share.
Your friendship can become stronger with the right eCard.
