5 free ecard options for sending holiday cards to family, friends or clients

Depending on the type of person you’re looking to send a greeting card to, there are some great options ranging from serious to fun to offensive. Ecards that are personalized are a simple way to touch market your client base or pipeline and not all ecard companies suit you or your clients, so below are our top five ecard picks for this season, feel free to share yours in the comments.


CardKarma offers free ecards, but what sets this ecard website apart is that you can use one of their template ecards or (and this is the cool part) you can use a YouTube video, Flickr image or a photo you upload yourself and the text and its appearance is completely customizable.


If your clients have a sense of humor or you’re looking to send a message to your social media buddies, this can be a fun (often tastefully offensive) way to do so. Be warned, they can be vulgar.


Want to send out a funny video of you and your team’s faces imposed on elves, a Justin Bieber hangout or various videos about Star Wars? This is one of the most fun sites, even if you don’t send out an ecard with it, go play with JibJab!


For the more conservative reader, Hallmark is a classic with tasteful designs, animation and interactive features that look like the cards you already know and love.

5. WWF ecards

Do you want to showcase your focus on the earth by not sending paper cards? Send a World Wildlife Fund ecard featuring animals and prompts for recipients to support WWF or sign up for their emailers. Some might consider it a good karma move?

There you have it, five ecard services to send to friends, family, and clients this and any holiday season!
