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.

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. Of all of the gifts and love notes exchanged on Valentines Day the most popular item is candy and for good reason.
