Valentines Greetings / January 6, 2019 / Fran Petty
Custom Ecards A nice thing about ecards besides being free of course is that you can easily personalize them. Theyre just like regular greeting cards in that way. When you add in a special message the person receiving it will know how you really feel about them. Many ecards let you put in a digital picture to make them even more unique. Printable Ecards Some ecards are printable too. Its even possible to use that software to create your own greeting cards. Now you can save money by making your own cards for each holiday birthday and other special occasion! Email Ecards One of my favorite features is that ecards help you procrastinate. Since theyre sent through email you can wait until Valentines Day itself to send one if needed. Now theres no reason to worry about your greeting cards getting there on time.
When it comes to artistry and uniqueness in animated electronic ecards however nothing may compare with the creations that Scandinavian-born artist and designer Frederikke Tu offers at Ojolie. The Valentine ecards currently available on the website to which Tu adds more designs every month include such tasteful undeniably classy often exquisitely beautiful and moving images. These are animated to music such as "Trumpeter Swans" in which haunting flute music plays while cherry blossom petals waft across a mountain lake where two swans glide toward each other their necks forming a heart reflected in the still waters. "Peony" featuring a beautiful flower that blossoms and then becomes part of the pattern on a lovely Japanese womans kimono as she stands beside a tranquil lake scene; and "Love Dance" depicting the courtship of two Japanese red-crowned cranes an elegant natural ballet of timeless devotion.
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. That may explain why more and more people are flocking to boutique-style artistic ecard sites such as JacquieLawson.com and Ojolie.com to send animated ecards for important occasions like Valentines Day. English illustrator Jacquie Lawson first won a following back around the turn of the millennium for an animated Christmas card she sent out to friends which got passed around and transformed her almost overnight into a phenomenon.
