Valentines Greetings / January 6, 2019 / Imelda Chang
The photos of your family and friends can be uploaded and printed to exude a unique and personalized appearance to the custom card. Although electronic cards have reigned presently handmade greeting cards still fascinate people all around the world. A sentimental handmade card with tender words expresses the love of a lifetime. No matter what type of greeting card you send on Valentines Day it is the message that it carries which really matters. Personalized Greeting (customized with your text message or photos) are the best possible ways to express your love and appreciation for others in an inexpensive way. It always strengthens the bond between people. With Valentines Day fast approaching thoughts turn yet again to the most tasteful memorable ways to send romantic greetings.
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.
Visitors worldwide pay annual subscriptions to her site especially for ecards featuring her beloved chocolate Labrador-Springer spaniel mix Chudleigh. He stars in such Valentine offerings as "Special Delivery" in which the pooch watches with growing despondence as a bird pulls from a mailbox a flurry of cards none of them for him until another loving dog arrives carrying a personal Valentine card. Still other Lawson options include non-canine creations like "Bubble Bath" in which a playful bird pops the cork on a bottle of pink Champagne then splashes in the bubbly-filled glass; and "Valentine Waltz" featuring a procession of nine different flowers whole initials form the word "V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E" while the blossoms form heart. The effects are tasteful and unique with a typically British country charm.
