E-cards have come a long way since Al Gore invented the Internet. They are no longer just boring messages accompanied by popular cartoon characters and illustrations that look like something your great aunt would send you using snail mail. I love them because they are quick, easy, eco-friendly and can easily brighten someone's day.
Here are some of my favorite tragically hip E-card websites:
- Someecards — I'm utterly addicted to this hilarious site with wacky, cheeky e-cards about friendship, flirting and the usual Hallmark holidays. The site is known for juxtaposing vintage-y images with witty and racy message. Warning: Some of the messages are of the explicit in nature, but the cards are completely safe for work.
- Carded — The site has video cards for all "those small and embarrassing real-life moments that, until now, nobody made greeting cards for" and they are fantasticly funny. (My current favorites are the I wish I'd gone to prom with you and the pay attention to me! cards.)
- iCards — If you're a Mac user you'll probably like these simple free, electronic postcards that come in a variety of styles. I can't say they are particularly funny, but if you're looking for something "normal" these will do the trick.
