Valentines Greetings / January 8, 2019 / Kelly Roberson.
Of course the field tends to be dominated in sheer numbers by the Internet presences of the longtime major card companies Hallmark and American Greetings. As you might expect Hallmarks electronic offerings are wide-ranging and diverse with an emphasis on heartwarming cuddly fun and humorous options that feel unfailingly familiar. The same goes for American Greetings also noteworthy for the creativity of such options as "Valentines Day Notes" which lets the sender click drag and assemble a personal fun message from a hodgepodge of romantic phrases much like those popular magnetic poetry kits on so many refrigerator doors. While both ecard websites offer a smattering of relatively simple free cards to send customers who want to deliver the best offerings have to pay for individual cards from Hallmark or a membership from American Greetings which might lead some to hesitate a moment and wonder if paying for e-greetings that feel slightly homogenized is really worth the money.
In the United States St. Valentines Day is the second largest card giving holiday celebrated. Somewhere in the vicinity of 190 million lovers and friends greeting cards are sent each year. The holiday is said to come to us from ancient Roman Empire times when a priest who was forbidden to perform marriages for the young strapping healthy Roman soldiers defied Roman law and performed the marriages anyway. He was eventually caught and imprisoned and executed. Now thats romantic. Ever since the early 1700s Americans have been sending expression of friendship gratitude and love to those around them. In the early 1800s Esther A. Howland produced the first commercial Valentine greeting cards. And even though receiving a beautiful card is wonderful Americans have demonstrated by their purchases during this winter holiday that candy is still our sentiment of preference.
And one of the biggest impressions any lover could possibly make this year may be one of the simplest: sending an animated e-card.
