Valentines Greetings / January 5, 2019 / Fran Petty
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.
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. And one of the biggest impressions any lover could possibly make this year may be one of the simplest: sending an animated e-card. Of course therell by countless deliveries of flowers chocolates and other gifts as February 14 approaches. Then there are the estimated 190 million paper-and-ink Valentines cards exchanged each year in the U.S. alone according to the Greeting Card Association. But printed cards no matter how beautiful and lavish tend to be categorized these days as ordinary and expected.
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.
