Best Ecard Sites and Card Apps

10 Apps and Sites to Send the Fastest Holiday Cards Ever

Handwritten cards are always appreciated, but if you've forgotten to pick up a batch for the holidays, sending an ecard is a great solution for sending well wishes this season. Let your friends and family know you're thinking about them by shooting off a few ecards today (or whenever you get the urge to say hello).

  1. Tiny Prints — Create gorgeous luxe holiday cards (including these ones designed by our editor-in-chief, Lisa Sugar!) that can be customized in everything from card trims to paper choice with the Tiny Prints iPad app.
  2. GroupCard — Want to personalize a thank-you card from your whole family? This site features an electronic pass-around that's accomplished by just emailing the card to the people who need to sign it. Easy as pie.
  3. Postale — If you have an iPhone, check out the Postale app. You can take a picture at whatever fabulously exotic location you're at, and then add your message and the email address of the recipient.
  4. Card Karma — Why send premade ecards dripping with sarcasm and snarkiness or awful flash animations of weird, dancing animals?! Make your own beautiful ecards on Card Karma where you can use your own images or pick from millions of Flickr photos and YouTube videos. It's 100 percent free and ad-free. Help out your friends and family by making creative ecards they can share.
  5. Moo — You may know Moo best for its customizable business cards, but did you know the company also takes your pics and turns them into fun holiday cards?
  6. Sincerely Ink — The company behind Postagram launched an iPhone/iPad and Android app called Sincerely Ink that lets you create stylish and whimsical holiday cards for your entire contact list. You can even upload your contacts' info, and the app will ship out all your cards for you.
  7. Red Stamp — With Red Stamp, you can email, text, post, or send a paper card to your recipient. Three cheers for options and low prices.
  8. Shutterfly — Shutterfly knows photos, but it also knows holiday cards. There are a ton of designs and card types to choose from — folded, flat, photo, and stationery — and all are reasonably priced.
  9. Vistaprint — Get 10 holiday cards for $10 and up through Vistaprint. Choose your design, photo, layout, and font all online.
  10. Postagram — Love using Instagram to capture memories on the go? Then send your friends and family an Instagram postcard with Postagram. The app is free and each postcard is just $1. Postagrams are printed and sent out within days, so you have plenty of time to snap some pics with you and mom together before sending one out.

I own an ecard company that focuses on customization, affordability and my ecards are animated, require no plugins and will play on smartphones, tablets, desktops and even in texts! Our New Year's line offers a customized matching calendar that your clients can print out!

My wife couldn't play any animated ecards on her iPad. But ecards play in all phones and computers including iPad and iPhone.

I love the concept of Groupcard BUT the site is really buggy and difficult to use. I started a groupcard once, but none of my friends/family could figure out how to use it. Photogram is my favorite photo card app, their designs are sooo cute and affordable. Best designs for paper cards is PearTree, here's my round up of the best holiday card sites: Top 10 Sites for Custom Holiday Cards
